The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - A grade 9 pupil at Athlone High School was stabbed during school hours yesterday after he was involved in an altercation with a fellow pupil.
Conway Wilson had a “scuffle” with a Grade 8 girl during first break, according to Western Cape Education Department spokeswoman Millicent Merton.
At second break, two young men jumped over the school fence and stabbed Wilson twice on the side of his chest.
One of the men was allegedly the brother of the Grade 8 girl.
Merton said a Bambanani safety officer on the school grounds intervened and applied first aid to Conway until he was taken to Groote Schuur Hospital, accompanied by the school’s principal.
Conway’s condition could not be established on Tuesday night.
A case has been opened at the Athlone police station.
