24 learners hospitalised after prank goes horribly wrong at Cape Town school

24 February 2017

The three Grade 10 learners who organised the bizarre prank are now facing disciplinary action.

Three Grade 10 learners at Silverstream High in Manenberg on the Cape Flats are in serious trouble after taking a prank too far this week. One of the three reportedly took livestock medication – a spray that’s used to keep animals from licking open wounds – to school. The boy roped in two of his friends to spray it in at least two classrooms.

According to Fareed Jansen, chairman of the school’s governing body, within minutes things had taken a turn for the worse – quite literally.
