Teen bullied at special needs school
Cape Town - The Western Cape education department has promised to investigate allegations of bullying at a special needs school in Cape Town.
A concerned mother said her 16-year-old son frequently came home from school with bruises to his face, reported Eyewitness News.
The boy attends a special needs school in Milnerton.
He wouldn’t talk to his mother about the bullying, and she believes he is scared of reprisal attacks.
But the boy told his cousin that he was being targeted during break and between classes when teachers were not present.
The mother contacted the education department but received no response.
The department told Eyewitness News it would investigate the matter.
