Laddsworth gives Maritzburg College a 150th commemoration gift
Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton recently presented a gift to Maritzburg College to mark its 150th anniversary.
Former Laddsworth boys now at College and current Grade 7 boys at Laddsworth who hope to go to College next year gathered for a presentation ceremony with staff from both schools. Presenting College with a bird bath for the school’s gardens, Laddsworth principal, Gavin Lambooy, said the two schools had a long association as generations of Laddsworth boys moved up to high school at College. He hoped this would continue for years to come.
College headmaster, Chris Luman responded with a gift to commemorate Laddsworth’s 110th anniversary: a memorial plaque.
