History Of
Sastri College

Sastri College was named after its founder, the right Honorable Srinivasa Sastri. Sastri came to South Africa in 1926 as part of a delegation to hold talks with the South African Government on the issue of repatriation of Indians. As agent, he was convinced that education held the key to the upliftment of the Indian Community. Sastri subsequently drew up plans for an institution that would serve both as a High School (offering instruction up to Matric) and as a teacher training College.
