A video has gone viral on social media of Hoërskool Akasia learners taking part in the #IdibalaChallenge (fainting challenge) in front of their teacher in class.
In the video, the learners play the popular song by Limpopo musician King Monada and pretend to pass out.
The video was allegedly filmed by one of the pupil in class.
The video continues where the teacher is seen scolding the teenagers outside the classroom.
“I do not want to see you in my class for the rest of the term,” she is heard telling the learners.

While some social media users found the video funny, others strictly criticized the learners’ behaviour saying that they should rather focus on their schoolwork.
Spokesperson for Gauteng department of education Steve Mabona, could not immediately give comment on the matter.
An enquiry has been sent to the department.
