St Andrew’s College and the DSG History Department hosted the well-known story teller extraordinaire, Rob Caskie this week. He gave an energetic and interesting talk on the Battle of Isandlwana to the staff, pupils and members for the Grahamstown community.
His telling of the stories of the Battles of Isandlwana and Rourke’s Drift have captivated audiences around the world and he brings to them so much more than the historical facts. He makes the events come alive and draws from them the most wonderful personal stories of leadership, courage, choice, victory and defeat. Such is his reputation that he has spoken to audiences around the world and has had the honour of addressing the Royal Geographical Society in London.
