Pupils in cellphone sex orgy

Three pupils from an East London school have been suspended after filming themselves performing sex acts in a classroom, Dispatch Online reported yesterday.

Three pupils from an East London school have been suspended after filming themselves performing sex acts in a classroom, Dispatch Online reported yesterday.

The 36-second cellphone video was circulated among pupils at Greenpoint High School, as well as at other schools in the city.

Greenpoint principal Albert Brown confirmed that sexual acts took place during class time.

"Either the teacher was looking away or had left the classroom for a few minutes, but it was during class time and the act was committed inside a classroom," Brown said.

The scandal is the latest of a string of school cellphone incidents in East London.

"We are deeply hurt by this as a school," said Brown.

Three grade 10 pupils appear in the video clip - two boys and a 15-year-old girl, wearing her Greenpoint school uniform. All three pupils can be clearly identified. In the clip, the girl remains seated on her chair while the two boys fondle her under her desk. All three can be heard giggling and chanting "more".

"I was shocked and I am still very shocked about what I saw," he said.

Brown said the three pupils had been temporarily suspended pending a final decision by the school's governing body. - Sapa
