THE ICONIC MORNINGSIDE PRIMARY SCHOOL TURNS AN IMPRESSIVE 90 YEARS OLD THIS FEBRUARY 2018

Morningside Primary School was established in 1928. It was formerly known as North Ridge Road Government School and changed its name in 1952. On 1 February 1928, the headmaster Mr E.H.

SA’s plans for other-worldly Kohli

If India emerge victorious in the second Test against the Proteas at Centurion, it will be because of Virat Kohli.
