Dear College Parents

The matric exams have started well and the boys have been happy with the papers thus far - so far so good

Bishops Rhodes Scholarship Nomination

I am pleased to announce that Emily van Heerden is the 2016 Rhodes Scholarship nominee. Emily is the first Herschelian to be nominated and we congratulate her on this superb achievement. Please see the attached communique.

World Public Speaking Competition

Included in the Assembly Notices is a report on the World Public Speaking Championships held in Vancouver. The performance of the Bishops team needs special mention. The team of Nik Tapanlis, Gabriel Makin, Mac Cheminais, Lloyd Wood, Nicholas Peile and Rohan Naidoo won the award for the top overseas school and Nik Tapanlis won the best overseas speaker award. This is the first time ever that a South African team has won the competition, a fantastic achievement!

Please see the attached notices which include a number of excellent achievements.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Yours sincerely
Guy Pearson
