The Western Cape Education Department has confirmed it is investigating an allegation of sexual misconduct against a staff member of a Grassy Park school after photos were circulated on social media of the man in compromising positions with what appears to be a pupil or pupils.
While the girls' faces have been edited out of the images, the man can be seen kissing someone in a car, holding onto the breast of someone dressed in a bikini, and driving in a car with a female passenger in another.
A photo of a girl dressed in a crop top is also part of the album, taken in what appears to be a school office.
It was unclear if it was the same girl in all the photos.
The post, which had been shared widely on Facebook, was no longer available on Wednesday.
Education department spokesperson Millicent Merton confirmed that the department was aware of an allegation against a staff member at the school.
"We view allegations of this kind in a very serious light and investigate them immediately. Our Labour Relations Directorate is investigating," she said.
