Monday 26 August 2019: As with all who've been following the news, WBHS is horrified, and appalled, at the brutal murder of Lynette Volschenck. On behalf of my staff, and our Wynberg family, I extend Wynberg’s deepest condolences, and support, to the family and friends of the victim, and to those of the accused reported in the media.
The accused, Kyle Ruiters, matriculated at Wynberg Boys’ High School.
He is remembered as a quiet, unassuming member of the school community who enthusiastically participated in school activities.
As we wait for the judicial process to unfold, we encourage all to exercise compassion and to respect the families involved. Shock, grief, healing, and the law, will take time, and needs our support.
If any members of the Wynberg Community feel they need counseling or debriefing, they are welcome to contact our Counselling Department.

Thursday 11 July 2019: Circular 8 of 2019 - This year we are once again holding a school raffle, of which the proceeds will be used to upgrade our facilities. All Wynberg men are expected to sell at least two completed books of tickets.
Just as Wynberg men in the past have raised funds for you to benefit from the current facilities, it is your turn to contribute to the future of the school and improved facilities, which the next set of brothers in the endless chain can enjoy.
Tickets cost R10 each and there are 10 tickets per book.
Once you have sold your books, you may take another – but you must sign for every book you take. You are responsible for the book/s – look after them! Unfortunately, if you lose a book you will have to pay for it.
We are very appreciative of the fact that so many Wynberg men make so much effort, and in recognizing this, the following incentives will be introduced:Tutor whose group sells the most books - R1000 gift voucherLearner with most books sold - R1000 gift voucherTutor group that sells the most books - Pizza and cooldrinkWeekly luck draw from returned books - R50 voucher to the tuckshop
Wednesday 10 July 2019: Please find the hot lunch menu and order form for Term 3 on the link below; please note that fruits are seasonal and may be changed without prior notice. Dairy products and nuts are used at times in meal preparation and, although not specified, there may be trace elements of the above in some of our dishes.
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.
