It has been a long time coming but it is here now for all you Trafalgarians, past and present, wanting to be kept up to date with everything happening at the school.
The new website has been on the drawing board for a few months now as we tweak the look and content so that we can try to satisfy the needs of our broader Trafalgar community.
This website has been created in response to the many requests we have had from Trafalgarians wanting us to have an official presence on social media and wanting the Trafalgar story to be "out there".
And we do have a story to tell.
Trafalgar has a rich legacy that other schools with a similar background to ours can only aspire to.
We were the first high school that students from the disadvantaged community could attend.
We were the school that was in the forefront of the fight against inferior education and society inequality. Our teachers - Kies, Steenveld, Slingers, Bavash, Edross, Lennert, February - were educators who helped shaped students who went on to become leaders in the community.
Trafalgar Alumni - Cissy Gool, Basil February, Dullah Omar and Rahima Moosa were political activists who fought the good fight against apartheid. Some were imprisoned, others paid with their life.
That is the history and ethos of Trafalgar... the school at the foot of the mountain that was as much the heartbeat of District 6 as anything else. A microcosm of the community.
This website will include that story along with all other relevant Trafalgar news.
We aim to be as newsy and inclusive as we can. On this site you will be able to see what our students are up to, what our teachers are doing, what our plans are for the new upgrade of the school and the achievements in our alumni community.
There are lots of improvements that can be done at the school and we are hoping we can involve our ex-Trafalgarians in the process. Any effort to help would be most welcome.
