Johannesburg - The principal of Westridge Secondary School would be charged with misconduct after a trip to a neighbouring country by three school governing body members, the Gauteng education department said on Monday.

Spokesperson Charles Phahlane said after an independent forensic report, the school was found to have contravened the SA Schools Act, with Gauteng department head Boy Ngobeni ordering the department to take action against the principal.

"The report said the principal should be charged and funds should be recovered from all those who went on the school trip," Phahlane said in a statement.

"If any of the members are still on the school governing body, the department should take steps to remove them."

He said the department served the principal with a charge sheet and has started legal action to recover funds from those who went on the trip.
