The high court in Johannesburg ruled on Wednesday that no public school could adhere to and promote one religion.
Last month, an application by the Organisation for Religious Education and Democracy (OGOD) was brought to the high court requesting it to rule against having one dominant religion observed at public schools.
During proceedings, van der Linde said that the Constitution supported both parties in the case, in that everyone had the right to religion which they could practice in public and that attendance was free and voluntary.
OGOD had argued that Constitutional rights which would be infringed included the right to equality, belief, as well as the freedom of religion.
Van der Linde said that the court remained concerned by the issue of a public school endorsing one religion.
