From Headmaster Mr Keith Richardson’s Magazine report:
Wynberg music has delighted Cape Town audiences for years. Our three bands and our 50 strong choir have been taken to new heights this year under the exceptional leadership of Keenan Oliphant. Our Steel Band went to the Grahamstown Festival and a DVD, professionally produced by Mr Gregory Shaw, father of our Head Prefect, provided a record for posterity and a benchmark for bands to come.
Kyle Martin, together with Ms Lindsay, was responsible for steering our Service Portfolio. He has lived the maxim that the world is not there for you, but you are there for the world. It is our job as a school to bring this realisation to our pupils and I have been hugely impressed by the number of opportunities which our boys have been offered by the Service Committee this year. Once our boys realise that their role on this planet is to give, then we have instilled a degree of maturity that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.
