Principal and teacher to square up in court.

A Port Elizabeth principal‚ who was allegedly smacked in the face with a glass jug by one of his teachers‚ will appear alongside her in court on Tuesday after they laid assault complaints against each other.

The incident alleged occurred after the teacher was accused of arriving late.

Promptness seems to be a problem at the city's schools.

The school said the measure came as a result of continuous tardiness.
