Proud Wynberg Old Boy, UCT Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, John Webb, sent a message read out by Professor Gilmour at the prize giving ceremony:

“In 2017, Wynberg came 5th, in 2018, Wynberg came 4th, and now in 2019, Wynberg has come 3rd … watch this space!”

Service Appeal to Assist International Children’s Peace Prize Nominees Chris Kleynhans & Reece Slade

Watch the Facebook video interview with Christopher Kleynhans and Reece Slade

Thursday 16 May 2019: Christopher Kleynhans, Wynberg Boys’ High, and Reece Slade of Reddam, both 15 years old and in Grade 10, are two exceptional boys who have been nominated for the KidsRights International Children’s Peace Prize Award, and invited to attend the Lead By Example Youth Program of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates to be held in September 2019 in Merida, Mexico.

Chris and Reece are strong youth activists for mental health awareness and environmental affairs, having hosted four 12 hour swimathons to raise funds and awareness about mental health under their banner of “Swim For Change” which they founded jointly in 2015, now a registered Non Profit Company, and a project with the backing and endorsement of the Western Cape Education Department

Beyond their academic pursuits, the two friends have also formed a Non-Profit Organisation (registration pending) called Earth Kids Org which focuses on youth-led environmental issues, greening public space, recycling and reducing single-use plastic.

And if that isn’t enough, they continue to be mentors in the Chaeli Campaign “Pay It Forward” programme … it comes as no surprise that Chris and Reece have been recognised as change makers leading to their nomination for international recognition.

A detailed timetable will be posted in the same location at the start of exams showing where each boy must go at any one time.

Wynberg Old Boy, Ken Barrett, to Walk the Length of Britain for Charity

Support Ken Barrett's charity walk on JustGiving.com

Thursday 9 May 2019: Wynberg Old Boy, Kennaird Barrett, with the support, and encouragement of former classmates, Herman Roup, England cricketer Allan Lamb, and rugby Springbok Rob Louw (all Matric 1973) starts walking north from Lands End to John O’Groats on May 13th to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS), and the Children’s Charity Ukama in Cape Town, which feeds over 400 children a day.

Capetonian Kennaird Barrett, a commercial fisherman with distant Scottish links, conceived the idea as he watched a TV programme on the work of CHAS. Profoundly moved, he vowed to do his bit to help, called on in part by his Christian faith.

Speaking before his departure, Kenny says: “I’m walking to raise funds for Children's Hospices Across Scotland, (CHAS) because I am in awe and inspired by the work they do with terminally ill children. Having seen a TV documentary in South Africa about CHAS and in particular their work at Robin House, one of their hospices, I felt driven to do something to help.”

Kenny continues “My son and daughter-in-law support the awesome Cape Town Charity Ukama and I feel the need to help these impoverished children as well.”
