Police say the suspect who opened fire, immediately ran out of the school and into a getaway car driven by an accomplice.

"Teachers will remain on school premises because they are still working. There is counselling taking place - for both teachers and learners." 

Nzama says learners are not school premises as classes have been suspended. 

"Teachers will remain until Friday because schools are closing on Friday. We will provide security at the gate there to look after the school and see to it that teachers already on the premises are looked after," Nzama said.
