Dear College Parents

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William Purkey"


Last night we enjoyed a truly spectacular Matric Dance. The décor was superb and did justice to the theme, “Welcome to Hotel Marrakesh”! The behaviour of the boys was excellent and they really danced the night away. My sincere thanks go to Trudy Hoefnagels who was the teacher in charge of the dance and to Jane van Tonder and her team of Matric Moms who put together such a superb event - certainly a night that the Matrics will remember forever.

I would like to congratulate Dean Sudding and his team of boys lead by Jordan van Tonder, Luc Janssens and Michael Thomson on the fantastic K4K event they organised in aid of various charities on Heritage Day. It was a great success and we are indebted to our parents, sponsors and everyone who participated in this event.

During the holidays we have a number of boys and staff involved in various activities and we wish them well:
  • 1st team Water Polo festival at SACS.
  • U16 Water Polo to DHS in Durban.
  • U15 Cricket to Grey PE festival.
  • U14 Cricket to Jeppe
  • Our Rowing team to the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, good luck to Jean Pienaar, James Faure, Chris Gruber, Michael Peter, Jono Rossouw, Preston Thomas, Sven Wellmann, Stuart Boynton and Stephane Pienaar.
  • Six members of the Public Speaking Society: Alex Peile, Troy Horrell, Mitchell Christy, Nik Tapanlis, Giuseppe Guerandi and Nicholas Peile will be participating in the National Championships to be held at Parklands College over the next four days.
  • Guerandi and Nicholas Peile will be participating in the National Championships to be held at Parklands College over the next four days.
I would like to bring the following to your attention:
  • A reminder that from next term parents will need to display the orange sticker on their windscreen for admission without having to sign in at the entrance gates.
  • The School Shop has registered with SnapScan making the payment process a lot simpler. Please contact them directly for further information.
  • School starts on Monday 12th October and Prize Giving and Valedictory are on Friday 16th October.
