Brooks and his wife Carmen were in their home - on the school’s campus - at the time of the attack. Carmen was not harmed.
Dave Cato, deputy head (academics), said following the attack Brooks was admitted to a private hospital in Pietermaritzburg for treatment where he had been in a serious but stable condition, until he was sent home yesterday.
“He is recovering well and is very upbeat,” said Cato.
He said the couple, as well as school staff, had been provided with trauma counselling.
