The incident happened in the Maqheleng area in Ficksburg where pupils from surrounding schools converged on Tlotlisong
The pupils went on rampage following reports that a pupil had taken his own life after being bullied by a teacher, leaving a heart-breaking suicide note that exposed the disturbing cause of death.
Anger and frustration quickly spread among the students, and soon they had taken two police officers and teachers hostage inside the school.
