Johannesburg - A life orientation teacher who allegedly screened pornography on his class projector by accident has been served with a notice of intention to suspend him, the Gauteng education department said on Thursday.

“We have instituted an investigation into this matter with the view to act,” said spokeswoman Phumla Sekhonyane.

She said the pupils were receiving counselling.

“We are extremely disturbed by these allegations. The safety of children at our schools is a priority.”

According to a report in Sowetan, the Grade 10 teacher told pupils to busy themselves with work he gave them while he prepared an exam they were soon to write.

The teacher then reportedly began surfing pornographic sites, unaware his laptop was still connected to the class projector.

One mother was quoted as saying her daughter came home terrified, as the incident brought back memories of her sexual abuse when she was younger. - Sapa
