Court intervenes in exam-writing row

2012-11-13 09:46

Johannesburg - The North Gauteng High Court has granted an urgent interdict to allow a boy to write exams after he was expelled from his Seventh Day Adventist church school for allegedly having sex in a classroom, the Sowetan reported on Tuesday.

The 17-year-old Grade 10 pupil at the Blue Hills College in Midrand, Johannesburg, allegedly had sex with a 19-year-old Grade 12 girl in a classroom in July.

Apparently four pupils had been caught having sex in the classroom in July.

Three of them were expelled. The Grade 12 girl was suspended and allowed to write her matric exams.

"She is writing her exams, while my son is expelled... despite the sex having been consensual," the father was quoted as saying.

The court handed down an order on Friday that the boy be allowed to write exams.

The school said the girl could not get into another centre to write her matric exams so late into the year.

    No wonder the youth of today have no moral compass. This behaviour should be punished.[Both of them]. They should both not be allowed to write the exams,as this interdict is going to send a message that such behaviour is tolerated. As a parent I would also be doing some seious punishing of my own-not running of to court to defend my childs bad behaviour!

    She is lucky to not have been arrested for rape as he is underage. Boys can have consensual sex only from 18 years of age, girls 16.

      As far as I know - boys having sex with girls is 16. Boys with boys (gay) is 18. It caused a stirr a few years back.
