The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation School’s Program offers four fun filled guided tours for children in Grades 3-8, with illustrated worksheets to complete so they remember the places they have visited. These tours are only available through the JHF as most of the buildings are not generally open to the public. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
The first is the Now and Then Heritage Tour, for Grades 3 and 4. This tour takes place at The Holy Family College, 40 Oxford Road, Parktown.
