Wynberg Matric Dance 2018

 View the Matric Dance photo album collection on Flickr

Saturday 16 June 2018: A chilly winter's evening soon warmed by the sheer excitement of everyone who had a role to play in this spectacular event. Parents, grandparents, parents of partners, friends, family, and interested spectators – nobody wanted to miss the main guests arriving in style, from helicopter to limousine, ensuring this moment would be remembered for many years to come.

The day had arrived, the matric dance our boys had been looking forward to. The perfect occasion in a perfect setting to celebrate the end of a tough exam period, and the climax of every student's years of anticipation to be center-stage in a matric rite of passage.

Months of meticulous planning and careful decision making informed the final choices – style and colour of the suit, shoes, shirt and matching tie (bow tie? or not?), and, of course, their partners and their outfits.

The school hall was transformed into a magical ballroom using black, red, and gold décor elegantly and exquisitely enhanced by ornate candelabra perfectly suiting the season. MC, Malcolm Scarrott, made sure that everyone felt welcome and comfortable, going to great lengths to explain the significance of this event. One could see the boys' chests puffing out and the must-do pitch of teenage nonchalance turning into a moment of immense adult pride.

Firmamentum Ludi – 2017 Reflections on Littlewood Boarding House

5 December 2017: At Littlewood Boarding House we hold great store in our position as the backbone of the school, our adopted motto Firmamentum Ludi infers a foundation of school support, with 2017 seeing our Littlewood boarders once again setting the standard and tone for Wynberg Boys’ High.

Hostel head prefect 2017, Abenathi Botha, along with his prefect body, did a superb job in building on the foundations and traditions of the past, helping to develop a modern boarding environment that is ever more friendly and welcoming.

In the year we celebrated 60 years in our current home-from-home, the boarding house was the fullest it has ever been accommodating 110 boys and an ever-expanding waiting list.

Our Diamond Jubilee coincided with the year in which the school’s house names were changed to reflect a closer historic relevance. An exhaustive consultative process by Wynberg’s Social Cohesion Committee saw Littlewood retain its name (to the joy of boarders past and present), with only the badge to change in keeping with the other school houses.  My thanks to all for their enthusiastic participation in the process.

As always, our boarders threw themselves wholeheartedly into the inter-house Friedlander Shield competition winning most of the major events – gala, relays, and sports day – to finish in 2nd position behind Lorie, the deserved 2017 winners.
