EFF members arrived at the school as early as eight o ‘clock on Wednesday morning to prepare for the organisation’s 16 June commemoration.
The group was toyi toying just outside the school gate.
They said the party is taking the rally to the school to demand an end to racism.
And they're eagerly awaiting the arrival of party leader Julias Malema who's scheduled to address them.
