All 14 learners who received treatment at a clinic in Delft after fainting and collapsing at school, have been discharged. The Department of Education in the Western Cape says it is not clear yet why the learners from Masonwabe Primary fainted. Spokesperson Bronah Hammond says the learners were treated for anxiety and shortness of breath: “The learners were treated for anxiety, displaying symptoms of dizziness, hallucination and shortness of breath. They were treated and discharged. Unfortunately teaching and learning did not continue today, we expect teaching and learning to continue on Monday. We appeal to the community to allow for this and not disrupt the school. All teachers were present at school today.”
