“Historians are regarded as having had an education that trains their minds to assemble, organise and present facts and opinions and this is a very useful quality in many walks of life and careers.” History is an excellent preparation for many other jobs.

Our aim in the History Department is to develop learners as individuals. We want them to be independent thinkers, open minded, disciplined and good at problem solving. Able to pick out the essential from the trivial.

The History Department has developed into a conscious driven department with it’s focus on the socio – economic and political power relations in terms of race, class and gender. To give some reasoning in historical context, why ’things are the way they are’. Although we have learners of mixed abilities, our department have performed well over the years. Getting excellent results in our NSC examinations. Despite many challenges and the lack of resources we always strive to equip our learners with the skills to not only make them wanderers through life but to be part of something bigger.
