Good fences, great school

While meandering (on foot) between my B&B, the hospital and the shopping mall last week, I always passed the school Angus attended from 1994-1997. Prior to this Angus had spent the first year of his high school as a full term boarder at SACHS College, Cape Town. When we moved from the diamond mines in Namibia to the Free State, we transferred Angus to Saint Andrews School, Bloemfontein.  (Please click on this link to see more of the school, if interested. I couldn't stay long and take too many photos - see my comment under the last image) 

The neat fencing surrounding the school grounds

The school's logo was FIAT LUX  - embossed on each pillar

School security in SA is very strict and I (flashing my Smartphone camera through the bars) didn't want to be taken for a stalker or even worse! This was the closest I could get of the old-fashioned buildings

I'm linking to Good Fences Thursday here

  9. It's a nice looking school and has great fencing. I completely understand about the security. I once stopped to take photos at the school Coleen attends and soon a playground attendant was there asking what I was doing.
