The school’s Board of Governors launched an ambitious fund-raising programme to celebrate the school’s anniversary. The aim of this campaign is to collect money to establish a dedicated bursary fund. This fund will mean that a number of deserving candidates will be able to enjoy the benefits of an education at the school.
The school has also recently completed the development of the old Municipal Sports’ Grounds (known as Victoria Park) to accommodate additional pre-school classes. The five pre-school classes moved into the new premises in January 2015.
Another exciting development is the establishment of an outdoor education centre near the Gariep Dam. This facility will be used to provide camps and outdoor classes for boys. The Orange River and the Gariep Dam with ample recreational and educational opportunities are also close by.
The provincial education department has provided funding for four additional classrooms. One of these classrooms will become a Mathematics laboratory which will enable teachers to use the latest technology to teach this very important subject.
The Board of Governors has continued with its programme of providing better sporting opportunities for boys at the school. This programme started with the provision of quality coaching, continued with the upgrading of the school gymnasium and will continue with a focus on skills training and conditioning in selected sports.
The school’s goal is to continue to provide a high quality, all-round education to boys from Bloemfontein, the Free State and the rest of South Africa.
