CAPE TOWN - Protesting Wynberg Girls High school learners have dispersed following a picket outside the school on Friday afternoon.

The group staged the demonstration over the hostel superintendent's alleged misconduct.

Last week, pupils released a statement claiming they are victims of sexual abuse and racism at the school.

Education MEC spokesperson Jessica Shelver says: “There were about 20 learners from Wynberg Girls' High School who protested peacefully outside the school. This was in light of a statement they released, highlighting allegations of racism, discrimination and misconduct against the superintendent of the school hostel.

”We all wholeheartedly support the learners’ democratic rights to protest.”
