Schooling was suspended for a week after the collapse of a walkway at the school, which left approximately 20 other learners injured.

Marnus Nagel passed away in a hospital in Alberton on Sunday morning while 17-year-old Rayden Olckers, 13-year-old Marli Carli and 13-year-old Jandre Steyn all died on the scene.  

Gauteng education spokesperson Steve Mabona says tents have been put in place while investigations are being completed.

"There are some work that has been done even though it is not full scale but there is a lot of work that has been done.”

Mabona says they are not expecting it to be all plain sailing.

"You still need to assist those that need assistance in terms of your counselling and you will then monitor the school and make sure that schooling is not compromised."

Mabona says 12 learners are still in recovering in hospital.
