Westcliff Secondary School- a beacon of hope in Chatsworth

The principal and staff of the school who are excited about the anniversary celebrations.

The flame which was lit 50 years ago at Westcliff Secondary School still burns as bright as it did several years ago and in commemoration of this momentous occasion, a special anniversary dinner and dance will be held on Friday, November 17.

The glittering event will take place at the Savera Hotel, situated at 17 Oak Avenue, Kharwastan from 6:30pm. On July 25, 1967 the state high school began to function as an educational institution for children from the greater Chatsworth area.

The first principal, Mr PCC Nair, together with 23 staff members, took charge of 337 standard five and 273 standard six pupils.  The following year, 11 more classrooms were added as the attendance roll had increased to 640 pupils.
