Wynberg Boys' High School De Waal House
Insignia & History of De Waal House

De Waal is one of the school’s original four houses, and has the anchor on a yellow background as its symbol. The anchor, which makes up one of the four quadrants of the school’s badge, symbolises hope and is associated with the figure of Hope which first appeared on the Coat of Arms of the Cape Colony and is still a feature of the arms of Cape Town. The House takes its name from Sir N. F. de Waal, who served two successive terms as Colonial Secretary of the Cape Colony and was reappointed for a third time in 1920.
