Winning Gold & Silver at the South African Rowing Champs 2020

“Race day had come. Roodeplaat dam was overloaded with hundreds of tents and people all hungry to row. I was nervous and scared, my heart couldn’t stop pumping. My coach gave me the talk before I went out and he said, ‘Prove the nay-sayers wrong! Show them who you are and what you can do.’ As I approached the green, slimey waters, I entered my boat, hands quivering, head shaking and I said, ‘Let’s have at it!’” T.J. Gwaziwa

Our young rowers went to the SA Champs which were held at Roodeplaat Dam in Pretoria, South Africa, on the 1st March, to compete in the Regatta held over the first weekend of March from the 6th to 8th , 2020. It was a wonderful experience for our rowers. A great deal of hard work and effort went into getting our athletes ready to compete down South.

Mission Week 2020

Recently the Mission Week team have been in the school sharing in the spiritual journey of many of our boys’. Their message “Yours is the Kingdom” played out in their conversations with groups around the school.

In conversation with the Chaplain, visits to the school by groups like the Mission Week team helps to provide a variety of inputs into helping shape opinion and understanding. To this end Dave Martins has spoken to the senior end of the school around the topic of addiction.
