Debbie Schafer, MPP
Minister of Education, Western Cape Government
A special ceremony for unveiling a commemorative plaque is scheduled for tomorrow, Heritage Day, at the Harold Cressy High School where Minister Schäfer will address ‘The importance of schools as a heritage institution’.
Recently, the Council of Heritage Western Cape unanimously decided that Harold Cressy High School in Roeland Street officially be declared a Provincial Heritage Site under the National Heritage Resources Act of 1999.
Minister Schafer will be unveiling a plaque that will formally acknowledge the school’s new status as a National Heritage site. It is also a historic moment for the school, as it is a formal recognition of the educational, social, cultural and political contributions over the years of the entire Harold Cressy community.
Date: Wednesday 24th September 2014
Venue: 103 Roeland Street, Cape Town, 8001
