Although Societies fall under the umbrella of the Cultural portfolio of the school, their areas of operation extend into many other areas of school life.
Hiking, surfing and sailing are offered in addition to the official school sports, with cycling (both racing and mountain biking), also gaining in popularity.
In essence, societies and clubs are encouraged at Wynberg; anyone can start a club, providing there is sufficient interest and manpower to drive it. We want our boys to have wide-ranging interests and a passion for learning new things.

Capstone:Â the Christian Union of both the Wynberg Boysâ€™ and Girlsâ€™ High Schools.
