Concern after suspected ISIS agents visit Durban school

 

 

Parents of children at Northwood High School on Thursday raised their concerns after two visitors to the school from Saudi Arabia, accompanied by a South African, handed out a DVD and pamphlets to some matric pupils that they fear promote extremism and could be seen as an attempt to recruit pupils to Islamic State.

The school’s deputy principal, Reggie Govender, confirmed that the school was investigating whether any attempt at recruiting pupils for ISIS had taken place.

Govender added, the teacher, who allowed the group to speak to the matrics without permission, had been placed on a leave of absence while their investigation was completed.

Concerns that the group may have been to other schools, and that would be part of police investigation.
