A video emerged on social media which showed a little boy breaking the lock of the classroom's door, so that he could go home.
This week, parents across South Africa took their kids to school for the 2019 academic year. However, while some were excited to start their school career or a new grade, others wanted to go back home.
One little man decided he does not want to be in class and not ever a locked door could stop him from going home.
The video, which was posted on Twitter on Thursday, showed the learner using his lock-picking still to open the door. Things did not go so well, so he opted for breaking off the lock entirely to open the door.
Throughout the video, the pupil is heard saying 'ek wil huis toe', which translates to 'I want to go home.'
While some social media users found the footage funny, others condemned the child's actions and called on the parents to discipline him.
Social media user @UDA_Boss wrote: "Well done to the teacher. Avoiding to be in trouble. Leave him to be his parents's problem as he 4sure learned this behavior from home."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported about another video which showed a young pupil trying to climb a fence to escape school, prison-break style.
It appears South Africans kids are not ready for the 2019 school year.
