WATCH: Last goodbyes for Hoërskool Driehoek pupil

07 February, 11:20 AM

Family and friends said their final farewells to Jandré Steyn, one of the pupils who died at Hoërskool Driehoek last week, during a funeral on Thursday in Vanderbijlpark.

The 13-year-old was remembered at a service at the River of Life congregation.

Steyn was to be cremated after the service, eNCA reported.

On Friday, a concrete slab above a corridor linking two blocks of buildings at the school crashed down on 26 pupils at the Vanderbijlpark-based school.

The incident happened a few minutes after 08:00, when pupils were heading to their classrooms from the morning assembly.
