Dear Christ Church Friends and Family
Please find below a communication from our Transformation and Diversity Committee.
It makes it clear where we as a school stand on the tragedies that have brought much pain to the surface, worldwide, and in our country in the past weeks.
Black lives matter – school statement
Our school is guided in two ways: by scripture, and by the constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
- Scripture makes it clear that all people are created in the image of God. (Genesis 1:26) “Image” can be more clearly understood as “likeness”. All people are endowed with divine likeness, and all human rights belong to them.
- The constitution of our country gives
four obligations, which must be applied in our school.
- We are required to heal the divisions of the past.
- We must lay the foundations for an open and democratic society.
- We must improve the quality of life of all citizens.
- We must build a united and democratic South Africa.
Everyone at our school must feel welcome, appreciated and valued for who they are. The school will act intentionally and deliberately to heal the division of the past and to promote unity.
We are committed to standing against racism, not only in our school, but in the country at large.
The school subscribes to a policy of non-discrimination, non-racialism and equal opportunity.
Through our Transformation and Diversity Policy and the Transformation and Diversity Committee, we would like all parties- parents, pupils and staff – to work together, and to walk together, to create an environment where everyone is safe, cared for and heard.
It is our deep desire that our pupils leave school and go out into communities and engage with others to create an equitable society. Moreover, to live the values as enshrined in the Scriptures and the constitution of the land.
This statement is issued sincerely, and with humility. The school undertakes to work closely with those who feel aggrieved to create a free and equitable environment for all.
