The South African Police Service in Mpumalanga is looking for the suspects involved in the arson at Uthingo Park, Witbank.
It is reported that community members from the area saw the school on fire and reported to the fire department.
Despite the fact that firefighters managed to extinguish the fire, the administration block including the principal’s office was severely burnt.
According to the SAPS spokesperson Colonel Mtsholi Bhembe, it is believed that the suspects might have used an inflammable substance as an empty container had been found at the scene.
Police are asking for anyone with the information to report.
