I am sadly informed that during the Parktown Boys Grade 8 Orientation Camp in Mpumalanga, one learner couldn’t be accounted for after a water activity. Police Search and Rescue are on site in the area of the river where a water activity was held. I will also join the search

Orientation at a river?? A young boy who cannot swim would be too embarrassed to admit this amongst his peers. Please examine the indemnity form Mr Lesufi. Schools ask parents to tick boxes to avoid liability but this won’t prevent injury or loss of life.😔

I really hope this is not a situation of bullying or a silly game gone wrong. the boys who were with with him should have their parents called and be questioned. how can nobody notice ? one of the boys may know something. @Lesufi #ParktownBoysCamp

This #ParktownBoysCamp outcome is really upsetting. Did the boy know how to swim? Was he given a life jacket? Why did the teachers on duty only realise the next morning? Everyone involved must be held responsible.

We take a lot of things for granted. My baby cousin returned from school camp on Monday. Safe and sound. One realizes the unmerited favor from God when they see stories such as that of the missing boy from #ParktownBoysCamp
Praying for his safe return🙏🏽
