Friday 1 October 2021: The School Governing Body take great pleasure in announcing the appointment of Mr Deon Scheepers to the post of Headmaster effective 1 January 2022.
Mr Scheepers will join us from Grey College in Bloemfontein where he has served as Principal since 2013, and previously as a teacher at both Hilton College and Michaelhouse.
Holder of both MBA and M.Ed. qualifications he has a track record of strong transformational leadership with a passion for the pastoral welfare of his students and staff. His legacy at Grey College in developing a school culture of excellence across all spheres will mesh with Wynberg’s long-established four pillars – Academic, Service, Sport, and Culture.
Married with two teenage children, Mr Scheepers is a firm believer in the Japanese principle of “Kaizen”, or continuous improvement, with a principled, honest but diplomatic leadership style rooted in a value system that resonates with our Wynberg Way.
He is enthusiastic about embracing the challenges of raising and educating boys, preparing them for self-discovery while engaging with others and serving the community as good men and relevant citizens.
We look forward to welcoming the Scheepers family to the heart of our community, and to working and growing together under the leadership of our 15th Headmaster as Wynberg Boys’ High School continues its journey in pursuit of excellence.
Good luck, Sir.
WBHS SGB Chairman
