Cape Town - A GRADE 8 pupil has been stabbed to death, apparently by a fellow pupil, on his way to school on Thursday morning.

Bronagh Casey, spokeswoman for Education MEC Donald Grant, said the pupil from Groot Brakrivier Secondary School, near Mossel Bay, was stabbed by another pupil.

“The incident happened when the bus stopped at a pick-up point.

“It is not clear at this stage whether the incident took place inside or outside the bus. An ambulance took the learner to hospital.”

Casey said the Western Cape Education Department had been informed the pupil had died.

“Our condolences to the family and friends of the learner.

“Our district office has arranged counselling for the learner’s classmates and for those who witnessed the incident.”
