Rustenburg - Bergsig Hoërskool in Rustenburg has received praise from the North West government for overcoming its racist past.
Provincial education and sport development department spokesperson Elias Malindi said the school used to have separate morning assembly points for black and white pupils.
"They also had two tuck shops for the pupils, one for the white pupils and another one for the African pupils within the same school.
"Now they have one assembly which is held every Tuesday and Friday, and there is one tuck shop for all the learners," said Malindi on Thursday.
Malindi said the department was continuing its work to unite pupils of all races in former Model C schools, which used to be for whites only.
Bergsig Hoërskool principal Elftenos Nicholenas confirmed that human relations were better at the school.
"Black and white learners attend in one class. They are no longer separated based on their colour," said Nicholenas.
He added that pupils from nearby township and village schools were also allowed to use the school's sporting facilities for training.
MEC Maphefo Matsemela visited Bergsig and others in the Bojanala District recently.
"These schools represent the total model of a diverse society. The dual streaming of Afrikaans and English mediums at Greswag Secondary School will eventually bring together the children of this country," said Matsemela.
The MEC said Grenswag Secondary, which used to be an Afrikaans-only school, obtained a 98% matric pass rate.
In 2013, they introduced English as its second medium. They introduced the second medium by having four Grade 9 classes doing English language.
He said that this year, Grade 12 classes would write their exams in English for the first time.
