In South Africa's mother city of Cape Town, the Western Cape Education Department is currently investigating video footage of pupils having sex in the back of a local school's classroom.
Local newspaper, The Daily Voice, handed over the video clip to provincial authorities after a concerned parent brought it to the publication's attention.
A concerned parent found the video on her nephew's phone and there are now fears that the material has gone viral among school kids in Cape Town.
According to the Daily Voice the nephew told her that it was sent to him from another friend, who attends a different school.
The WCED on Monday night vowed to investigate the footage after it was brought to their attention.
“We are deeply concerned about this case and are investigating it as a matter of urgency,” WCED spokeswoman Bronagh Casey explained.
“The video has only come to the department’s attention today. We were not aware of its existence and are trying to ascertain the location of the school.”
The footage – which is more than a minute long – shows the learners having sex inside an empty classroom while a third pupil records the act from above.
The kids are both still in their school uniform. The teenagers’ school uniform is identifiable on the video.
According to the Daily Voice, Teachers Union Provincial Secretary Joavon said the footage was “a serious matter for concern”.
