WBHS UCT Maths GoldFriday 7 June 2019: Wynberg Boys’ High School was delighted to be awarded 3rd place in the UCT Maths Competition at the prize giving ceremony at the Baxter Theatre.

This is an amazing achievement by our boys, and overall, Wynberg’s highest ever placing at the annual event which began in 1977 at a local school, before moving to UCT in 1980.

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!”

Circular 7/19: Grade 8 – 12 Mid-Year Examinations

Friday 10 May 2019: We are about to enter the mid-year examination period and we want to keep you informed of procedures so that together we can ensure your son has as good an academic environment as possible in which to write.

For grades 8 to 11 the examination period starts on 16 May and for grade 12 on 14 May. The last day of exams for all grades is Friday 7 June. The general examination timetable is on the front page of Moodle showing the days on which each subject is written. 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.

This year the holy month of Ramadan ends during the last week of the examination period. Eid is expected to occur on Wednesday 5 June. However, if Eid falls on another day then the timetable for that day will swap with the timetable for 5 June. Read the full circular on the link below ...

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.”
