Dozens of schools across South Africa have recently faced allegations of racist incidents from former and current pupils amid global Black Lives Matter protests.
Students from former Model C schools in Gauteng, the Western and Eastern Cape as well as KwaZulu-Natal and others have posted their experiences of alleged racism at their schools by teachers and fellow students alike.
Some schools involved in these allegations include Trinityhouse Randpark Ridge in Gauteng, Wynberg Girls' High, Bishops Diocesan College, Herschel Girls' School all in the Western Cape and Clarendon High School for Girls in the Eastern Cape.
The executive head of the school, Marianne Bailey, said she understood emotions were running high, and it would be engaging in Conversation Circles to provide a platform for current pupils to raise these issues, the report added.
The school governing body for Clarendon High School for Girls in the Eastern Cape said it accepted difficult truths must be heard, adding it would institute a committee to create a platform to raise issues of racism.
