VICTORY IN EUROPE AND JAPAN

On both VE and VJ day, the whole school assembled in front of the main building whilst Miss Stone, Miss McLean and the heads of the five houses climbed the water tower. The Union Jack and the South African flag were raised whilst the heads of houses formed a guard of honour. A minutes silence was observed followed by the school enthusiastically singing ‘Die Stem’ and ‘God Save the King’. It was everyone’s hope that a great war would never again threaten the world and affect the little community of St Anne’s.
