Western Cape Education Minister, Donald Grant yesterday visited Masibambisane High School in Delft following the fatal stabbing of one of their students earlier this week.

Grant says communities, the police and schools must all work together to ensure that incidents such as this do not happen in the future.

Departmental spokesperson Bronagh Casey says the school uses metal detectors to prevent students from carrying weapons, but added that the incident happened outside the school, with the use of a knife that was hidden in a nearby clinic.

This is the second calamity that hit the province's schools this year after Inkwenkwezi Senior Secondary School pupil was stabbed to death.

The deceased was attacked by three men on his way to home.

He ran back to school premises where he died.
