Pupils from South Africa at Glenvista High School allegedly torched a school hall in protest against writing examinations, Sowetanlive reports.

The incident occurred on Monday.

Images shared on social media showed how curtains in the hall were set ablaze.


Local councillor Sarah Wissler shared on her Facebook page that the pupils are in grade 10.

Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi, who on Tuesday visited the school to assess the damage, shared a photograph showing pupils writing the exam outside.

“Yesterday they burnt the school hall because they didn’t want to write an exam. Today  they wrote the exam outside. So sad,” he tweeted.
