Sans Souci pupils hand over memorandum to Education MEC

The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has officially received a memorandum from learners at Sans Souci Girls High detailing the allegations leveled against the school.

Former and current pupils as well as teachers have been protesting against claims of racism and discrimination at the school.

WCED MEC Debbie Schafer met with learners on Monday to discuss the investigation into what they believe are oppressive institutional policies.

In the meantime, Sans Souci principal‚ Charmaine Murray will not report for duty and has been offered alternative placement at the WCED district office.

Learners called for the dissolution of the current school governing body, which Schafer says is not procedurally correct.

The governing body also held an emergency meeting yesterday to discuss drawing up a new code of conduct.
