Department of Basic Education in collaboration with Freedom Park will hold its annual iNkosi Albert Luthuli Oral History finals. National adjudication of the 2018 competition will take place on Saturday the 29th. This will coincide with the awards ceremony and a gala dinner to take place later that evening. The Minister of Basic Education will deliver the keynote address as well as present awards to the top winners at the gala dinner. The CEO Freedom Park will hand certificates to learners who will serve as the provincial Freedom Park ambassadors.
The oral history programme is named after one of the fearless luminaries of our liberation struggle, iNkosi Albert John Luthuli. Chief Albert Luthuli has resonance with the Department of Basic Education as they recognise his credentials as an educator –completing his Higher Teachers Training course on a scholarship at Adams College, before taking up his first teaching assignment in the same college as one of the only two Africans to join staff.
