Western Cape Education MEC, Debbie Schäfer says the department is still gathering full details on the stabbing of Bishop Lavis School of Skills principal.
According to Schäfer, principal, Wayne Abrahams was stabbed several times on the head, chest and shoulders.
It is suspected that the stabbing is linked to an apparent gang related incident at the school when a 15-year old learner shot another in the leg in March this year.
Abrahams had been receiving threats.
Schäfer says they have organised counseling for the deeply traumatised teachers and have deployed extra security guards at the school to ensure safety of staff and learners.
This is completely unacceptable , I am completely shocked and disgusted by all this.— Debbie Schäfer, Western Cape Education MEC
We cannot carry on like this that our teachers are too scared to go to schools and teach because of this kind of action.— Debbie Schäfer, Western Cape Education MEC
