“THE LONG WALK TO FREEDOM” by Mnqobi Sithole

Our Grade 12 Class of 2024 recently visited the Nelson Mandela Capture Site in Howick. The article below, written by Mnqobi Sithole who matriculated last year, appears in the HHS Outlook 2023. 

There is one thing I hate about history, and it's the fact that it is... history – it's real, it happened. It is the fact that it's the true picture of our past and the adversities we dared to conquer. That makes it a part of who we are. We can't run away from our history as South Africans because it's no so far behind us at all. Our journey to liberation was long, brutal, and dark, but most importantly it was necessary – Madiba called it “the Long Walk to Freedom”, but ARE WE THERE YET?

Nelson Mandela is one of the most important figures in South African history and the Nelson Mandela Capture Site in Howick, KwaZuluNatal, is an important heritage site that commemorates his arrest in 1962, which was a vital moment in his life and in the struggle against apartheid.

Feedback from the Pitch – Cricket 1st Term Report back

First Team Cricket

This year’s First XI cricket has been led by Trent Woodrow, with Tai Munro and Gabriel Swift as his two deputies. In 50 over matches, played on Saturdays, our team is undefeated with notable victories over Kloof, Howick, and Thomas More! The last victory of the season being the most noteworthy as it was their highest successful run chase of the season.

The team this year is a very close-knit group with a strong contingent of Matrics and Grade 10’s who’ve all made their debuts in the last 6 months, many of them eased into the team with exposure through the Tier 2 W100 tournament last year. The fruits of this have been evidenced in their ability to field well at the higher level.
