JOHANNESBURG - Pupils from three different schools say they're standing up against discrimination and inequality at their respective schools.

Matriculants at the Bishops Diocesan School in Cape Town wrote a letter claiming the racism scourge has been ongoing for decades.

Also in Cape Town, pupils at the Herschel Girls School called for a zero-tolerance approach to racist acts.
