The Sacred Heart Matric Class of 2020 along with the teachers and Grade 8 students who were at school wore black to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

We stand against the discrimination that takes place as a result of racial injustice. Along with this public stance that we are making, the Matric group has also ensured that awareness surrounding racial discrimination is made readily available throughout the school.
