anti-racism charter

Racism is a belief that one race or ethnicity is superior to other races. It can take many forms, such as jokes, comments that cause offence or hurt, name-calling, verbal abuse, harassment and intimidation that inflames hostility towards certain race groups and making an instantly formed judgment about someone because of their race or culture. It can result in persons being disadvantaged or excluded from accessing services or participating in employment, education, sport or social activities. Racism occurs on a day to day basis and happens within our homes, workplaces, streets and places of leisure.

  • South Africa continues to experience racism and discrimination.

  • everyone deserves to be treated with fairness, respect and dignity

  • transformation is required to fundamentally change the mind-sets and conditions that in the past have led to discrimination and exclusion

Framework and Objectives
Racism has damaging effects on individuals, families and communities and the learning and working environment.

Racism can adversely affect educational outcomes, individual happiness and self-confidence, school climate, cultural identity, school and community relations and student behaviour. It has been linked to diminished morale, lower productivity and an increase in incidents of stress and absenteeism. Specifically in the learning environment, it may result in lower levels of education achievement and lower rates of participation in post-school education and training.
