Sunday Times - - News | Land -

Af­ter Dutch Re­formed Church moderator An­drew Mur­ray opened the Huguenot Sem­i­nary in Welling­ton in 1873, it be­came the blue­print for the ed­u­ca­tion of girls in South Africa. Mur­ray’s ap­proach was based on a model de­vel­oped at the Mount Holyoke Sem­i­nary in Con­necti­cut in the US, and un­til the 1920s most teach­ers at Huguenot Sem­i­nary were Amer­i­can. Mur­ray was the min­is­ter at the Dutch Re­formed Church in Welling­ton from 1871 to 1906, and lived in the town un­til his death in 1917
