The pupil hit the teacher and poured water on her face and body.

The provincial Education Department said the pupil has been arrested for assaulting the teacher.

The department's Sam Makondo said: "We condemn such behaviour in the strongest terms possible, and we would like to say there is no room in the sector, it must not have room in communities and parents must ensure that such a room is not created in their homes, where these learners spend most of the time."
