This comes as the school’s caretaker has been suspended pending a disciplinary hearing.
Western Cape Education Department (WCED) spokesperson Bronagh Hammond said the school’s hair policy was being reviewed.
“The caretaker will face a disciplinary hearing regarding the comments allegedly made. He’s a school governing body appointee and is currently suspended.
"An investigation into the comments made by one of the teachers is also under way by Labour Relations. The teacher is employed by the WCED,” Hammond said.
