Dressed in full nun attire, teachers performed the famous dance to the hit song 'I Will Follow Him'. However, one of the teacher played the part of Whoopi Goldberg's character- in blackface.

Blackface is a form of makeup, where a white person paints his/her face black to represent an African person. However, blackface is associated with an incorrect stereotype surrounding black people and has been widely criticised as racist.

Social media user @LeloMaisela posted the video on social media.

"Guys am shaking right now, just came back from my daughters prize giving and as a last act the teachers did an Sister Act rendition and they blackfaced, am so confused as to why they thought this was a good idea. @MYANC @Julius_S_Malema @tumisole do they not know that is wrong?" she captioned the post.
