					 THE DEVELOPMENT BAK OF SOUTHERN AFRICA’S (DBSA) CHAIRMAN, JAY NAIDOO TO ADDRESS THE
          BUSINESS COMMUNITY ON THE HISTORIC SCHOOLS PROJECT AT BREAKFAST.

The Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) Jay Naidoo will be delivering a keynote
address to the business community in Gauteng in an effort to encourage partnership to
revitalize the under-resourced South African „historic schools‟ which played a significant role in
the formation of our present day nation.

These „historic school‟ were seen as one of the group of denominational schools, established by
various religious orders that sought to provide education experiences to children of Black South
African communities and were responsible for offering quality education to (almost entirely)
Black South Africans until the promulgation of the Bantu Education Act of 1953.

The schools that require financial help are Adams College, Inanda Seminary, (KZN), Healdtown
Comprehensive School and St Mathews (Eastern Cape), Lemana (Limpopo) and Tigerkloof
Educational Institute (Northern Cape).

In essence and for the purposes of this project, a “historic school” is defined as a presently
under-resourced South African secondary school which has formally played a significant role in
the formation of our present day nation.
