Rustenburg - A 53-year-old primary school teacher accused of assaulting a pupil, briefly appeared in the Bafokeng Magistrate's Court in Tlhabane on Thursday.
The case against him was postponed to July 3.
The teacher allegedly beat a pupil with a broomstick in January 2018, for allegedly playing in the rain. The girl was in Grade 4 at the time and suffered a swollen hand as a result of the beating.
The girl, now aged 10, is in grade five and her nine-year-old brother who is in grade four, were kicked out of the school on May 7, by a group of enraged parents accusing their father of "causing trouble" at the school.
The father opened a criminal case after his daughter was attacked and another case after his son was allegedly kicked by a teacher with a high-heel shoe on his knee in July 2018.
