Jeppe High School for Boys War Memorial. Johannesburg

Jeppe High School for Boys in Kensington, boasts of a beautiful War Memorial which was paid for by Julius Jeppe and which was unveiled by Jan Smuts. It features a dome over a plinth with the names of  masters and pupils of the school that lost their lives in The Great War. The dome has a port which is supposed to let the sun shine on the ROH below on the 11th of November, although this does not work in the Southern Hemisphere.

One side of the dome is the school museum and the other side is to be used for “recruiting”. The names of boys who died while still at the school are on a separate memorial alongside the Dome.

Two World War 2 ROH Plaques are in the foyer of the school hall and it is hoped that a Border War Memorial will be built soon.
