Huguenot Memorial School (Remains of farm Kleinbosch)
Dal Josaphat, Western Cape


In 1881 the Genootskap van Regte Afrikaaners decided to establish the Huguenot Memorial School. The building was erected in 1882-1883 and served as a school until 1910. It was originally a Georgian double-storey building and was the first school to use Afrikaans as its medium of instruction.
