Learners residing in Waterloo House at Wynberg Girls' High School in Cape Town are picketing outside the school.

The learners earlier in the week sent out a statement with allegations of ill treatment by the house mother.

Some learners who have finished writing their exam are picketing outside while waiting on their friends to finish their exams.

Learners say they have received an email from the school stating that they will be arrested if they take part in the picket.

Some members of UCT's student representative council (SRC) have joined the picketing learners.
