In the photo, a small group of black children are sitting at a separate table away from the white children.
The picture was shared on the school's WhatsApp group by the children's class teacher.
"It is outrageous that a classroom in 2019 can be racially segregated, which only serves to teach young children from day one to see each other as different and separate".
This was after a picture showing black pupils sitting separately from white pupils at a North West school went viral on social media.
"From the information I got from the meeting, it seems that there are a lot of cases here of racism", provincial Education Minister Sello Lehari said after visiting the school.
Student activist Mcebo Dlamini wrote on social media the "most provoking" aspect of the image "is not that black kids are ostracized from white kids, that is common in our supposedly post-apartheid Africa", South African news website TimesLIVE reported.
Curro Foundation School in Roodeplaat was found guilty of racism after a probe by the Gauteng education department.
"All I saw was messages from the white parents saying "dankie, dankie" ('thank you, thank you') on the WhatsApp group but no one was saying anything about the separation of the learners".
"We are not going to be held back by anything in our fight against racism", Mosenogi said.
"This was meant to be an exciting day for me but it's not", said the parent.
'Rather what becomes painful is that there are black people who still insist that racism has ended and who think that blacks and white can have peaceful relations that do not have undertones of racism.
This time of year is supposed to be joyous as a lot of kids start their school careers while others return to a higher grade.
The removal appears to be as a result of fears surrounding safety, amid protests gathering momentum outside the school which appear to be led by EFF members.
"These private school tendencies of segregating learners based on the colour of skin is against the principles of a democratic South Africa we live in today".
