This after a photograph showing racial segregation in a Grade R classroom at the school. The image was allegedly taken on Wednesday and sent to a WhatsApp group by the class teacher to show parents that things were still going well on the first day of schooling.
The photograph shows a group of white learners sitting together while their four black classmates sit at a small table near the door.
Premier Job Mokgoro said he had noted with shock the images which were widely circulated, “depicting different seating spaces allegedly allocated for black and white learners” at the school.
“The matter has been brought to the attention of the provincial Department of Education who dispatched a team to the school to investigate as to what exactly happened.
