EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken in the 1920s, showcases the King William III School, also known as The Gymnasium, located in the historic European suburb of Weltevreden in Batavia, Indonesia (now Jakarta, Java). Named after an estate of the same name owned by Peter Albertus van der Parra, a Governor-General of the 18th century, Weltevreden translates to 'contentment' in Dutch. The King William III School, a hogere burger school or higher grammar school, played a significant role in Dutch colonial education during the Dutch East Indies period. The gymnasium provided secondary education to the children of the European elite, preparing them for higher education and careers in the colonial administration. The photograph features the school's impressive façade, adorned with tall, arched windows and intricate stonework. The banyan tree, a symbol of strength and growth, stands proudly in the foreground, its sprawling roots providing shade and a sense of tranquility. The tree is a testament to the rich history of the area and the enduring connection between the Dutch and Indonesian cultures. The King William III School, with its grand architecture and storied past, offers a glimpse into the colonial past of Batavia and the Dutch East Indies. The photograph serves as a reminder of the educational legacy left behind by the Dutch colonial rulers and the lasting impact it had on the region's history.
