From the Magazine Editorial by ‘C.A.M.’:
The year 1948 marks a new era in the history of our school, with Mr W. E. Bowden taking over the duties of Head. Mr Bowden has a wide range of interests, among which is an appreciation of the Arts. We extend a hearty welcome to our new Head and Mrs. Bowden, whose capabilities as a hostess have been apparent to all. May their work at Wynberg be attended with all the success they could desire …
As the record of school activities in the pages following will clearly show, the Wynberg School has had a full year well spent. We can proudly say that our achievements on the field of sport and in the examination room, as revealed in last year’s results, are second to no other school. With the good spirit prevailing, may we go from strength to strength.
