Old Boy Sikhumbuzo Notshe Socking it to Twickenham #Boots4Berg

Wynberg Rugby Old Boy Sikhumbuzo Notshe to wear his old school 1st XV socks for the Barbarians vs the Pumas at Twickenham

Saturday 1 December 2018: Congratulations to Old Wynbergian, Sikhumbuzo Notshe (Springboks & Stormers), on his selection for the Barbarians Squad against the Pumas. In a salute to Wynbergians around the globe Notshe will proudly wear his #WynbergRugby 1st XV socks at Twickenham, likely the first time our kit has made an international appearance on that hallowed field.

Ever-supportive of his old school, Notshe is also no stranger to giving back to grassroots rugby in South Africa, recently teaming up with fellow old boy, Tim Connellan (1985) to assist Lagunya RFC with new club strip, sponsored by international legal firm, Linklaters.

In this season of giving, and with WBHS new boys' rugby day coinciding with with the Baa-baa's match, Wynberg Rugby outreach launches our 2019 #Boots4Berg drive to collect good, used boots and rugby training equipment for our development projects. We appeal to our Wynberg Families and Old Boys to give as generously as in previous years to help those less fortunate. 

#Boots4Berg is an outreach project across all Wynberg Sports: for more information on how to contribute, please email our Vice-Principal of Sport, Mr Mike Engelbrecht, mengelbrecht (@) wbhs.org.za.

Meeting the Challenge: Grade Ten 2018

WBHS Grade 10 Challenge

Thursday 15 & Saturday 17 November: both groups A & B returned safely after 110 kilometers on foot through the Cederberg Mountains in nine days, and a day’s labour in service to the community of Bosdorp -, footsore, sunburnt, and in desperate need of home cooking, and (dare we say) a hot shower.

Head of Grade 10, Mr Chris Moore explained the tradition of the annual Challenge: “ … it is just that, to challenge our next leadership group both physically and emotionally so that they develop into young men equipped to overcome any test that life throws at them, and prepare them for their roles as senior students at the school. They build friendships, learn to respect their surroundings and get an opportunity to give back through a community service project. 12 life changing days in the Cederberg Wilderness.”

18 11 15 Grade10Setting out from the base camp at Algeria, the Groups set off two days apart, heading in opposite directions on a trek led by guides from Bosdorp who know the mountains and weather better than Google could ever learn. The Challenge Team, as it soon became, boys and staff alike, camped at Warmhoek, Boontjies, Crystal Pools, Driehoek (meeting base for both groups), Sneeuwberg (from where all made the essential hike to the Maltese Cross rock formation, iconic symbol of the Cederberg), Riempies, and Onderkruis.

Cold nights under the Swartland stars, blistering sun, the weight of backpacks, cooking for themselves, living without phones and technology, and finding strength in friendships and sharing will be remembered by all for years to come.

In enforced personal solitude, our Wynberg Men opened their letters from home. The emotional intimacy of a handwritten note from those one loves, read alone by torchlight or in the lee of a cragg sheltering from the sun, was welcome strength to all. Few, if any, failed to shed a tear. Within two years, as Matrics, our Grade 10s will pen their own personal letters to their families for Valedictory 2020 when they perform their final rite of passage to becoming Wynberg Old Boys.

WBHS Grade 10 ChallengeAt Bosdorp, the community supported over years of Grade 10 Challenges, maintenance to the shade structures in the public recreation areas was undertaken, clearing overgrowth around the mountain stream, building and repairing of fences, and painting of a building earmarked to become an essential shop to serve the broader community was completed.

In keeping with the call to ‘leave only footprints’, a wholesale litter collection at both the Algeria and Bosdorp recreation areas signalled a clean finale to the 2018 Challenge, as they team boarded the buses for the long road back home.

We extend our grateful thanks to to our Guides from Bosdorp, the staff of organisers, Landscape Tours, Wynberg Old Boys Greg Andrews (2013) and Liam Didcott (2016), and our intrepid Wynberg leadership of Rob MacLean (former Head of Physical Education), Ms Cayleigh Huggett, and Messrs Julian Taylor, Neil Eddy, Gareth Searle, Stefan Potgieter, Chris Rushby, and Myles Campbell, our recently arrived exchange student from George Watson’s College in Scotland.

Wynberg Sports Roundup, Week Ending 9 November 2018

View Wynberg Cricket's photo timeline 2018

Friday 9 November 2018: Fourth term sport has wrapped up: our cricketers continued the fine form shown against Bishops by winning the lion’s share of matches in the final derby against SACS, with some notable performances:

1st XI: T Ntini 3/13 and Z Noor 4/23. R Carr 542nd XI: Lawrence 105*(127), Van Schalkwyk 91(123), a 196 run partnership. Schultz 4/38 (10)4th XI: D Hendriks 56 U15A: Prodehl 4/30 (10) U14A: won a thrilling match by one wicket courtesy of a SACS overthrow. This should not detract however from lower order heroics by Cullan Larkin who scored 22 not out coming in at number 11. A last wicket partnership of 51 by Larkin and Van Reenen secured a Wynberg win. L Harmse 4/57 (9.2). Z van Reenen 62*U14A vs WP U13: L Metu 46 and J James 45. M Bing 2/33 and C Larkin 2/45.U14B: L Meyer 4 wickets for 16 runs.U14C: ended the year unbeaten under the captaincy of Ryan Nell.U14D: C Broad smith 57* Wynberg Staff vs SACS: Thursday 8 November saw our Wynberg Staff failing to ram home the advantage against their SACS counterparts. After Adolf Groenewald, Andrew Wylie, and Pietie Loubser helped post 160 in 20 overs, some desperate bowling and fielding saw Wynberg relinquish the advantage for SACS to tie the match off the last ball.

All Wynberg Cricket results on our website  Tennis: The 6ths and 8ths won all their matches against SACS and Muizenberg respectively, with the 4ths and 5ths serving up convincing wins over Rondebosch and Herzlia. On Saturday 6 players from the 2nd and 3rd team played in a mixed doubles tournament with Herschel, Bishops, Rustenburg, SACS and St Cyprians. Wynberg drew St Cyprians as a mixed partner, winning 4 of the matches played.

Sporting Achievements - Congratulations
