Clive Herron’s post regarding Mansfield High School had me wondering about the school badge detail. I remember the school wore a green blazer and the seniors wore grey longs and black shoes. I also recall their main rugby field was very hard, having experienced it personally. Regarding the badge, I looked amongst my meagre resources and came across this which shows the 20 oldest Natal schools. Of those I know of 5 which no longer exist, St Agnes, St Joseph’s, Mitchell Girls High, Oakford Priory, and Mansfield. Interesting to see which are the oldest schools. These pictures come from a 1969 brochure marking Payne Brothers Centenary.
