MEC Chiloane saddened by educator’s passing at Bophelong Secondary on school premises

Gauteng Education MEC Matome Chiloane is devastated by an incident that took place on Thursday, 18 April, where a male educator from Bophelong Secondary School in Vanderbijlpark allegedly collapsed on school premises and passed away.

It is alleged that the educator reported to work on Thursday morning and passed by the principal’s office to greet him. However, as the staff morning meeting was about to commence, he was not there. The school’s administrator allegedly found the educator laying down next to his car.

Emergency services were contacted for assistance. Unfortunately, the educator was declared dead upon arrival. Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident. Our Psycho-Social Support Team will be extending counselling services to all staff and learners who may be affected by this unfortunate incident.

“We are devastated by the passing of one of our educators and wish to convey our sincere condolences to his family and school community,” said MEC Chiloane.
