The Gauteng Department of Education confirmed that learners from M.C. Weiler Primary School in Alexandra discovered what is alleged to be a human body underneath a mobile classroom within school premises on Thursday, 2 June 2022.

Gauteng Education Spokesperson Steve Mabona said this unsettling discovery was made during school break between 11h00 and 11h30, when learners allegedly went to fetch a soccer ball that was underneath the Grade 5A mobile classroom.

“The learners reportedly identified their discovery as a human skeleton and immediately informed their educators. Subsequently, the school’s management contacted the police and released learners at 13h00 to allow police officials to conduct necessary investigations”.

Mabona further said the police officials inspected the scene and the learner’s discovery was confirmed to be a human skeleton. “The body was then removed from the scene and police indicated that an inquest case will be investigated accordingly”.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi said while they await further reports from the police regarding this matter, learning at the school will continue with necessary psycho-social support.
