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.

Thursday 18 April 2019: For over a decade Wynberg has prided itself in providing the best possible media experience at all our major events, both for the participants, and for friends and family unable to join us field, pool, or court-side.
Wynberg Grey Weekend 2019 will be no exception, and our enthusiastic team of volunteer photographers and videographers will be following the cultural and sporting action from the moment our guests from Port Elizabeth arrive, to their departure by bus.
Extensive photography is planned for both Boys’ Junior and High events, video clips will be produced and shared, and all the rugby matches on the Hawthornden Field at WBHS are to be live streamed via our Wynberg Media YouTube channel, a first for Wynberg Grey Weekend in itsd 24 year history.
While our media coverage is primarily ‘by the boys, for the school’ - with the live stream team an excellent example of students embracing new media and developing their skills in videography, editing, mixing, broadcast, and commentary - Wynberg Media is indebted to the commitment and enthusiasm of all our volunteer photographers: parents, staff, and old boys.
We hope you enjoy their work, and their personal contributions to lifelong memories of an extraordinary weekend of friendship, rivalry, and competition.
All events will be cued from our Wynberg Grey Weekend Facebook Page for on-the-go updates, while the events list and fixtures are available on the high & junior school websites - where a grey icon appears next to a fixture, our media team will be providing live text commentary (nothing to download, a simple website interface to follow while on the move); full photo albums for all events will be run on our Flickr.com photo channel, while the rugby live streaming playlist may be found on YouTube.
Welcome to Wynberg, and here’s to making great media memories together!
Friday 26 April 2019, Bill Bowden Pavilion, Home of Wynberg Old Boys: for nearly a quarter of a century students and families of both The Grey and Wynberg have enjoyed a unique reciprocity of hospitality and friendship as our two High & Junior Schools travel cross-Cape to enjoy the traditional cultural and sporting exchange known as Wynberg Grey Weekend.
With parent and supporters’ hospitality being laid on adjacent our Wynberg Astros during the course of the days’ play and into the evening, back on the High School campus the Wynberg Old Boys’ Union, and the WBHS Rugby Supporters’ Club take great pleasure in inviting all parents of our four schools, old boys of Grey & Wynberg, and our friends and neighbours to the Bill Bowden Pavilion for an easy evening of schools’ pride, camaraderie, and friendship.
With Wynberg families meeting their ‘weekend wards’ from the Eastern Cape in the early evening, and hockey families winding down after a full day’s competition, there’s the chance to grab some light refreshments and boerewors rolls on sale by our Rugby Supporters’ Club, meet up with old friends visiting from Port Elizabeth, and giving the youngsters some free time on the fields before heading home in advance of the big sporting Saturday.
For parents, old boys, and non-school going over 18s, the Wynberg Old Boys’ licensed premises will be open into the evening with light music and big screen TV sport on tap - a chance for veterans of Wynberg Grey Weekend to renew friendships, and exaggerate their on-field tales of sporting derring-do since this unique relationship between our two great schools began, at Grey, in 1996.

WBHS vs SACS Athletics, view the photos on Flickr
Friday 25 January 2019: A new event on the southern suburbs athletics calendar, the first recorded Wynberg / SACS meeting. A great afternoon of friendship, rivalry, and competition in the best sporting traditions of South Africa's two oldest schools. Thanks to one and all for the incredible support.
Welcome to the Hawthornden Field, and our first inter-schools athletics event of 2019. A special welcome to Mr Brendan Grant, the SACS staff, and particularly the athletes, supporters, and families.
Athletics is easily the oldest participation school sport, and while it would be fair to say that today’s competition between South Africa’s oldest boys’ schools must have its origins in the first half of the 19th century, this will be the first recorded formal bilateral athletics meeting between Wynberg and SACS. The sporting histories of our proud schools are rich in the records of our encounters on the fields and courts, and in aquatic pursuits - may today’s meeting become the first of many.
For generations of SACS and Wynberg Men the traditional derby matches to conclude summer and winter sporting seasons have been the annual highlights of rivalry and competition - it is with shared pride that we begin the competitive athletics season in just such spirit, a celebration of the reasons we play school sport.
