A Bi-centennial Heritage Project - Share your Story

The Church of Cape Town (and South Africa) is about to celebrate its 200th Birthday.  To mark this special celebration we are inviting all Catholic Schools to tell your special story.

How to do this?
Research the history of your school or founding mother/father. You might also like to tell the story of someone who has played a special role in your school.  You may present your Bi-centennial Heritage project in any of the following ways:

  • An interview with a ‘wisdom figure’ in your community who can tell you about the history of your community.

  • An essay or report sharing your school’s story or a chapter in the life of your school’s story.

  • A poem or song which captures the spirit of the history of your school.

  • A picture, collage, photographic album or visual timeline which tells the story of your community.

  • An essay titled, “If these walls could speak ...”        

You may embark on this project on your own or as a group. Entries will be judged 
under the following categories: 

  • Group entries

  • Individual Entries

  • Junior Category ( Foundation Phase)

  • Intermediate Phase

  • Senior Phase 

  • FET

All entrants and participating schools will receive a certificate of participation signed by Archbishop Brislin
The best three entries in each category:
Will be photographed and featured in the Archdiocesan News and Catholic Education News.  
Will be invited to an award ceremony over which the Archbishop will preside.
Will receive a cash voucher/book prize.


Closing Date:
Monday 16 October
