Back to the list

Garlandale High School is located at the corner of General and Trematon Streets in Athlone. It was formed in 1982 with Mr. Titus as Caretaker Principal. In 1983, the same year as the first matriculants graduated, Mr. AJ Snyders became principal. Initially the school was called Athlone No. 2, but the name was changed to the more unique form that is commonly used today.
Garlandale was (and still is) a home to many famous ambassadors of our country, namely Eddie Daniels - author of the book "There and Back" and political activist who spent 15 years imprisoned on Robben Island, Basil Snayer, and Quinton Fortune - Manchester United and Bafana Bafana soccer star. It was also the true location of the very first staging of the theatre production "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Africa under the directorship of Clive Barrows and Basil Snayer in 1989. This musical production was done by a school band of teachers and learners.
