Johannesburg – Gauteng education MEC Barbara Creecy has dismissed appeals by the Waterkloof High School's principal and deputy, the department said on Wednesday.

"(The MEC) dismissed their appeal against the findings of the department," said department spokesperson Charles Phahlane.

Principal Dr Christo Becker and his deputy principal Andre Eloff were fired earlier this year for misconduct, after they were implicated in the maladministration of school funds, running into millions of rand.

Phahlane said Bekker's appeal was dismissed due to the "extremely serious nature" of his offences, his abuse of the relationship of trust between himself and the department, and failure to disclose that he was undertaking remunerative work for various organisations without the permission of the employer.

Bekker was found guilty on three acts of misconduct.

The decision to dismiss Eloff's appeal was due to his lengthy career in education and the position he held at the time the charges were made against him. Also, because he tried to hide receipt of payments by submitting invoices to a false name.

Phahlane said the fact that he changed his plea in his representations in the appeal, changed his stance regarding why he did not contravene section 33(1) (a) of the Employment of Educators Act. He was found guilty of three acts of misconduct.

There were no further steps that the two men could take to appeal the findings, Phahlane said.
