Historic South End reunion

Lee-Anne Butler

IN what is expected to be an emotional reunion, past pupils who attended the historic South End High School in Port Elizabeth will reunite this weekend after over four decades.

Many will meet for the first time since the school was shut down under the Group Areas Act during the apartheid era.

Former pupils are coming from all parts of the country, and even from abroad, to celebrate.

The school existed for only 19 years before it was closed down in 1973.

While tickets are already sold out for the event, which will take place on Saturday at the South End Museum, interest generated has resulted in organisers scheduling a picnic at Schoenmakerskop on Sunday at noon for everyone who cannot make the main event on Saturday.
