Heritage celebrations

SACS pupils Thomas Roones, Sam Lenihan and Caelen Bright accept a certificate for their school being the oldest in the Newlands, Kenilworth, Claremont area.

The Centre for Conservation Education in Wynberg hosted a schools heritage celebration last week giving recognition to the Cape Peninsula’s rich educational history. Every year in September, Heritage Month, this educational institution that has run outdoor and museum education programmes for 17 years, concentrates on a different geographical area to celebrate those schools’ histories and heritage. This year was the turn of the schools in Claremont, Newlands and Kenilworth. The history of the schools was told through a PowerPoint presentation, starting with the youngest school and ending with the oldest school in this area.
