At Curro Roodeplaat School in 2015, for instance, school kids were divided by race as they made their way out of a bus during a school trip.

Asked how she felt about the incident, she said she hoped her five-year-old child was still too young to have noticed what was going on.

After meeting school staff and education department officials, Mr Lehare confirmed that the form teacher in question had been suspended.

Earlier, parents removed their children from the school and tensions were high as EFF members gathered outside the school.

"The school's ethos is built on inclusivity as a reflection of the broader South African society", says the school governing body's chairperson, Jozeph du Plessis.

A mother of one of the four, who was angered by the incident, said the photo was sent to the school's WhatsApp group.

The mom added she was not sure how to move forward at the moment.

The mother, who is not being named to protect the identity of her child, told TimesLIVE that her child's first day in grade R had initially started off smoothly. The school is being contacted and this article will be updated once its response is obtained.

A mother of one of the black students said she was outraged at the segregation and also the fact that not one of the white parents had mentioned it.

The GDE, led by Lesufi, concluded that what they had witnessed on the video, showing white children being separated from their black classmates as they hopped off the bus, was a common occurrence in classrooms. "Not a division based on race - but a division legitimately based on the language preference of the class." the school wrote in a statement.

"All I saw was messages from the white parents saying "dankie, dankie" ['thank you, thank you'] on the WhatsApp group, but no-one was saying anything about the separation of the learners", she said.

These three examples show a trend more than coincidence.

We expect to see more developments unfold at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneke.
