The Kimberley Boys' High School pupil seen throwing water in his teacher's face in a viral video on Twitter has been suspended and will attend a disciplinary hearing, the Northern Cape education department said on Tuesday.

The video shows the young man with a water bottle in his hand. He says: "You're a good teacher, ma'am".

He then throws the water in her face as his classmates crow in the background.
