File: The newly-appointed principal says the school is now embarked on a healing process, saying the school has introduced an anonymous app where children can report areas of concern.
JOHANNESBURG - Parktown Boys High School says Gauteng's Education Department has known about the sexual assault allegations at the school since last year.
This is contrary to the department, which has said it was never informed of the incident.
Officials issued a statement, saying the matter was reported to the department on 4 November, a day after CCTV footage was discovered.
They say police were contacted and the perpetrator arrested the moment the matter came to light.
He's been banned from the school premises and is awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing minors.
