Book Launch Invitation - Gavin Rich's "Our Blood is Green: The Springboks in Their Own Words"

Thursday 14 November 2019 from 18h00: Wynberg Boys’ High and the Wynberg Old Boys’ Union take great pleasure in welcoming Penguin Random House to the Bill Bowden Pavilion for the launch of rugby writer Gavin Rich's latest book “Our Blood is Green: The Springboks in Their Own Words”.

 

Gavin, just returned from the Rugby World Cup in Japan, is no stranger to the venue as a regular Master of Ceremonies of our Old Boys’ ‘Open Mic’ evenings where his exceptional knowledge of the game, the players, and his insights into South African Rugby are always fascinating to experience first hand. 

Coming on the back of the Springboks’ definitive victory over  England to lift the Webb Ellis trophy, this is an evening not to be missed. 

Admission is no charge, but seating is limited. Please contact Tamlyn Hendricks to secure your place: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 021 460 5466

Wynberg Features in '20 South African Schools, A Pictorial History'

WBHS is honoured to be included as one of 20 South African Schools to be featured in this unique pictorial history due for publication in December 2019. 'A magnificent volume of 224 pages and over 400 pictures portraying 20 institutions which have forged their legacy in this country’s history', the book makes for fascinating reading (see excerpt below) as it traces our Wynberg story over nearly two centuries, while placing us in the context of the development of education across the country in the company of brother and sister schools.

While no proceeds of the sales acrue to the School, this volume is an ideal companion piece to our own anniversary publications 'The Story of a School' by DH Thomson (1961), 'A School Reflects' by AR Goodwin (1991), and 'Brothers in an Endless Chain' by N Veitch (2016), and ‘When the Wax Melts’ by KC Richardson (2018); we thank our former Librarian, Mrs Patricia Rogers, for the research and authoring included in this pictorial history. 

Don Nelson Publishers are offering the book to parents, staff, Old Boys, and Old Girls of the featured Schools at the discounted price of R350 + postage. If you wish to purchase a copy or copies of this superb book please download the order form and email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with proof of your remittance.

"Wynberg Boys’ High School is situated at the foot of Table Mountain about 12 kilometres from the centre of Cape Town. It is set in 20 hectares of parkland and offers facilities that are among the finest in the country. It is a traditional, values-based boys’ school which mentors young men by providing a wide range of educational opportunities in a stimulating, innovative and challenging environment. Although steeped in tradition, Wynberg is modern in outlook and proudly South African. Its emphasis is on understanding boys, its ethos is brotherhood and its guiding principle is ‘never give up’, which is in keeping with the school’s motto of Supera moras – overcome difficulties.
