Dear College Parents

We really enjoyed a very special day on Friday. We were blessed with a beautiful day and the Prize Giving and Valedictory services went exceptionally well. The matric class of 2015 is to be commended on their excellent behaviour over the past few weeks - they have responded positively to our call for a dignified and happy exit. My thanks go to all the parents for their support. We now wish them well as they sit their final matric exams.

I would also like to bring the following to your attention:

President’s Award:

On Saturday morning we hosted the Gold Award Ceremony for the President’s Award for Youth Empowerment for the Western Cape at Bishops. This is a worldwide organization started by the Duke of Edinburgh in 1956. The Gold Award is the highest level that can be achieved and I am very proud that Bishops had the largest number of candidates who successfully achieved this level. Well done to Luke Burton, Luc Janssens, Leonardo Potgieter and Alexander Steyn together with old boys Gregory Erlangsen, Ben Malandrinos, Christopher Lea, Graham Turnbull, Stuart Bristow and Oliver Burt.

My congratulations and thanks also go to our Award Leader, Mrs Alexandra van Selm for her support and leadership of this programme at Bishops.

K4K Silent Online Auction:
