The principal of Parktown Boys’ High School has been dismissed.

Malcolm Williams has faced three charges of misconduct relating to the death of Enoch Mpianzi (pictured). The Grade 8 pupil had drowned during a team-building excursion to Nyati Bush and River Break Lodge on January 15.

He was last seen on a makeshift raft he, and other learners were on. He was swept away by the Crocodile River and his body found two days later. Williams has been found guilty of taking the boys to the camp without approval. He had also failed to ensure that a proper roll call had taken place for pupils who had gone on the trip.

The Gauteng Education Department says that Williams has the right to appeal the findings.
