Johannesburg – Two pupils of the Dr EG Jansen High School in Boksburg, on Johannesburg’s East Rand, will appear before a disciplinary hearing after being caught in possession of steroids, Netwerk24 reported on Wednesday.
Principal Leon de Beer called the police to arrest the two boys, aged 16 and 17, on the school premises.
The school’s governing body decided to suspend the boys pending the outcome of the hearing next week.
Governing body chairperson Kobus Kleynhans said any children caught using steroids would not be allowed to participate in school sport again.
The police said the boys were arrested and then released into their parents’ care.
This comes a day after Western Province rugby player Gerbrandt Grobler was banned for two years after testing positive for an anabolic steroid.
