Teacher Chimonay of EC’s English Language School in Cape Town took her Intermediate class students to the Slave Lodge. The Slave lodge is the second oldest building in South Africa and served initially as a lodge for the slaves of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and subsequently as the first post office, library and supreme court. The Museum houses for example collections of ceramics, toys, silver and textiles as well as artifacts from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Besides that there is a lot to find about Cape Town’s history and the slavery. Students got to learn about Cape Town’s history and discussed how much it has changed.
It was a very informative outing with a lot of new vocabulary and history.
