    ‘The Witness’ (formerly ‘The Natal Witness’) is the local newspaper for Pietermaritzburg and the surrounding midlands of the province. Today they had a special edition to commemorate their 170th anniversary. What may be of relevance to FAD is an article on former editors of the newspaper. The following is an extract from this article :

    G.H.Calpin arrived in South Africa in the thirties to take up the principalship of the Quaker school at Inchanga, becoming editor of The Witness in 1935.

    Even today Inchanga is a very small village so it is unlikely to have had two schools. I don’t think that the Quaker connection with this school has been mentioned before. Does anyone know if it was still a Quaker school at the time of this photo?
