The Bloemfontein High Court will hear a matter in which a Grade eight pupil wants to be allowed to attend classes with her dreadlocks.
Lerato Radebe, 13, a pupil at Leseding Technical school in Thabong, Welkom, will file an urgent application to ensure her return to school.
Radebe is supported by Equal Education (EE) and represented by the Equal Education Law Centre (EELC).
According to a statement released by EE on Thursday, the school had “repeatedly” discriminated against Radebe who had dreadlocks as part of her Rastafarian faith.
Since the beginning of the year Radebe was not allowed to attend classes at her school because of her dreadlocks.
