The next moment the boy says, "You're a great teacher, ma'am” and splashes water in her face. The teacher tries to get the bottle of water from the pupil and heads for the door.

An anonymous teacher called in on Breakfast with Martin Bester admitting about the circumstances in which teachers have to work in. She says, "It was always my dream to become a teacher but this year I've been thrown with a chair and I've been hit twice after trying to stop a fight. It's been difficult."

Martin Bester said it would not have happened when he was in school.

Child psychiatrist, Dr. Sarvani Pather had an insightful conversation with Martin Bester about aggression among children. 

According to News24 the Northern Cape department of education spokesperson Geoffrey van der Merwe said, “This type of behaviour is unacceptable, and parents must fulfill their primary responsibility to inculcate good values and norms in their children.”
