LETOYA TEMILTON DROWNS DURING SCHOOL CAMP
Latoya Temilton – of Pretoria’s Laerskool Queenswood – died during a Grade 7 school leadership outing over the weekend.
According to Letoya’s sister Palesa, her family was told she had hit her head on the pool’s edge.
Palesa told Newzroom Afrika that the school had “hid” the news until she was due to return home. The family also learned that the learners were allegedly left unsupervised at the pool area.
Palesa said: “I feel like the school was negligent because they had to look after the kids. We placed them in their hands”.
