From Headmaster Mr Keith Richardson’s Magazine report:
The school continues on its route of being a genuine South African school where all, regardless of race or creed, can feel at home and know that they have a role to play. We can never be satisfied that we have succeeded. Complacency in any sphere of school life will soon lead to a decline. During the year, the school held a Quo Vadis Conference to see whether we were on the right track. We were challenged by educational analyst, Clive Roos, and facilitator, John Gilmour, to look at ourselves critically, to throw out what had become old and tired and to be clear on the way forward.
We followed this up with a survey of all parents, pupils and teachers to see how the different constituencies saw the school. This process is still ongoing and will serve to ensure that our school remains a leader in the educational field.
