  3. 3. The Basketball Courts<br />In the Wykeham days, what are now the basketball courts were tennis courts.<br />Mini Tennis was played at St Nicholas in the early 1990s, but then the courts were converted first to netball courts, and later to courts for both basketball and netball.<br />

  8. 8. The Foyer Clock<br />The Gr 12s of 2010 collected money to buy a clock for the Foyer.<br />The Gr 7s have been giving gifts to the school since the mid 1990s. Many of their gifts of benches are used every day.<br />
  9. 9. The Car Park<br />Before 2000, the car park was a dusty or muddy field where teachers’ cars broiled in the sun or got stuck in the mud.<br />In 2000, the driveway and the first shaded parkings were installed.<br />
  10. 10. The Old Gates<br />Mr Singh, Grounds Manager in the 1990s, found these gates in a room under the Grade 7 classroom, and hung them between the car park and the playground.<br />

  12. 12. The Foundation Phase Playground<br />When the school started in 1990, there was no playground equipment, only a big hole where a trampoline had been taken out when Wykeham moved up the hill to TWC.<br />Swings were the first things installed<br />
  13. 13. The School Bakkie<br />A grey VW kombi was purchased for the school in the early 1990s, and was the only vehicle for almost 10 years.<br />We now have 4 STNICS vehicles.<br />
  14. 14. The “Broekie Lace” Fence<br />This fence was originally on the outside of the school and was our barrier between Loop Street and the school.<br />As security was tightened, the fence was moved inside to create a barrier at the end of the van Velden Lawn.<br />
  15. 15. The Lottering Shield<br />This shield was donated by the Lottering family. Mrs CharmaineLottering ran the Aftercare for many years, and all 4 of her children – Jethro, Paddy, Cindy and Candice - attended the school. The shield was carved by their father. <br />

  17. 17. The Railway Line Bell<br />This “Bell” was used in Wykeham days to let the grounds and domestic staff know when it was lunch time.<br />In recent years, we have used it to note a minute of silence at midday, as we pray for peace.<br />
  18. 18. The Plane Tree<br />This wonderful, shady tree was planted in former staff member – Mrs Yvonne Poole’s_ first year of teaching at Wykeham School.<br />
  19. 19. The Swimming Pool<br />When the pool was built by Wykeham in the 1960s, it was the only school pool in Pietermaritzburg deep enough for diving.<br />The pool was completely renovated in 2008.<br />

  21. 21. The Workshop<br />When St Nicholas took over the buildings from Wykeham in 1990, what is now the workshop was the old laundry.<br />It had been gutted by fire, but the old stone wash troughs were still there.<br />
  22. 22. The Wykeham Gate<br />This gate used to be on Loop (JabuNdlovu) Street, opposite the Hall doors out onto the lawn.<br />It was moved in 2000 when a wall and fence, making the front of the school more secure, were installed. <br />The gate is now between the playground and the Library.<br />
