Curro Holdings has denied racism allegations at one of their schools.
A grade-nine learner at Curro’s Somerset West High School claims to have received racial threats via WhatsApp from another pupil.
It’s also alleged that the learner assaulted the same victim on school premises.
But, Curro says the two learners were of the same race, and the threatening voice notes were sent after school hours.
Curro Holdings spokesperson, Natasha Mkhize says the school intervened following a complaint from a parent.
“The necessary internal disciplinary processes and subsequent mediation occurred, while support was offered to the family. As with all of its schools, the group reiterates that it is completely committed to unity and racial cohesion and does not condone any form of discrimination, cyber bullying, religious intolerance, hate speech and derogatory language, or anything that affects the dignity of a human being.”
