Schools hon­our WWI vic­tims

The Independent on Saturday - - METRO - | DUN­CAN GUY

A CEN­TURY LATER: Glen­wood High School’s prin­ci­pal An­dri Barnes, pic­tured above left, got the ball rolling among KwaZulu-Natal’s old five boys’ schools whose past pupils and staff fought – and many died – in var­i­ous wars, when she placed a wreath at the school ceno­taph on Wed­nes­day.

On Fri­day, mil­i­tary VIP guests of­fered salutes at Dur­ban High School, pic­tured be­low, and Mar­itzburg Col­lege, above right, low­ered its flag at their re­spec­tive cer­e­monies.

Michael­house will hold its cer­e­mony at 11am to­mor­row, “on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month” when World War I ended in 1918, while Hilton Col­lege will mark Re­mem­brance Day with an evening chapel ser­vice.
