A school principal has allegedly called black girls at her school dirty.

eNCA reports that the headmistress at Wordsworth High School sent a note to parents complaining that the girls only washed their hair once a month, and therefore they are dirty.

The principal and staff checked the girls hair and if it wasn’t the way she wanted it, the pupils were sent to the girls toilets and told to wash out their hair with sunlight liquid.

“The principal and another female teacher were there with towels to dry our hair after which we had to go and sit in the sun to dry it more,” said one pupil.

A fuming parent said the principal had disrespected the children as well as the parents.

Meanwhile, the Gauteng Education Department has launched an investigation into the matter, and will be guided by the outcome on the course of action to take.
