In celebration of Women's Day next week (8 August), The Matric History class showcased some South African Women whose actions had a significant impact on the liberation struggle and highlighted what still needs to be done for the empowerment of women. They also recommend books, movies and charities to support.

Two of our Alumna, Jamie Fraser and Aleya Dugmore (E'19) have started an NGO, Uplift Through Thrift . They are appealing for donations of clothing and blankets that will go to families in need or will be sold in their second hand store. All of the proceeds from the store goes to providing relief to families negatively affected by Covid-19. Email them at and they will let you know when and where you can drop off the items.
