Single-religion schools have been outlawed in South Africa after a ruling at the Johannesburg High Court.
Public schools may no longer promote themselves as subscribing to a single particular religion at the exclusion of others, the court ruled.
The oldest art objects in the world were discovered in a South African cave.
Dating from 75,000 years ago, these small drilled snail shells could have no other function than to have been strung on a string as a necklace.

"Within this context, public schools are public assets which serve the interests of society as a whole." The national department of education said the ruling was consistent with its own policy that no one religion should be promoted above another, South Africa's Independent Online reports.

The recent 'Figures and Fictions' exhibition of South African photography at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London included the work of Mikhael Subotzky, Zanele Muholi, David Goldblatt, Zwelethu Mthethwa and Guy Tillim.
Contemporary South African artists whose work has been met with international acclaim include Marlene Dumas and William Kentridge.
