Cape Town – In celebrating their 71st birthday, Alexander Sinton High School opened a museum that showcased their role in the struggle for freedom.
Two halls were also renamed, after the first principal and vice-principal.
The unveiling of Franklin P Joshua and Wilfred J Arendse halls took place on Saturday, in the presence of the two men’s relatives, former teaching staff, pupils and the extended community.
The school was actively involved in the 1970s and 1980s anti-apartheid uprisings and they made headlines when they barricaded the police into their school in 1985.
