Who are we?

A living monument for Afrikaans and mother tongue tuition The Gedenkschool Der Hugenoten (“Memorial School of the Huguenots”) was established on 1 February 1882 after the Genootskap van Regte Afrikaners (“Association of True Afrikaners”), headed by the reverend S.J. du Toit, created new appreciation for the role that mother-tongue tuition should play in education. To give expression to this ideal, the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the French Huguenots to South Africa in 1688 was used to build a school as living monument to acknowledge the distinctive interests of a specific language.
