Fixtures & Practices




Friday 22 May 2015


Dear Parents

A bit of housekeeping with regard to winter uniform:

We always have a bit of confusion at the start of the season as to what goes with what so if you could support us by reminding your boys of the following:

  • The rain jacket can be worn to and from school over uniform.  It does not replace the jersey, blazer or tracksuit top.
  • The jersey may only be worn with khakis.
  • The full tracksuit may be worn over khakis in winter (except Monday Chapel Assembly) and is worn with sports kit.
  • A blazer must always be worn to Monday Chapel Assembly.

We will be reminding the boys next week and monitoring uniform carefully from next Tuesday.

Enjoy the weekend.

Kind regards

Civvies Day Friday 29 May

Instead of a cash contribution, this time we are asking you to bring second hand clothing on Civvies Day. Next week we are supporting a school at the request of one of our boys who would like to donate clothes to an under-resourced school in Victoria West.

We will be donating the clothes to the John Rossouw Primary School in Victoria West. The ages of the children range from 5 - 15.

Luke Botha and his family will deliver the items to the school in Victoria West so please support them in their endeavours.
