Well done to our High School Swimming team on their performance at yesterday's home gala. It's wonderful to have some activity in the pool!

Well done to our High School students and staff who participated in this morning's Hollard #DaredevilRun2021.

The boys were out and about early this morning before the start of school, and caught the eye of many of our parents and students as they ran down William Nicol and Broadacres Drive.

The annual run aims to raise awareness for male cancer, and all proceeds go to CANSA The Cancer Association of South Africa and the Prostate Cancer Foundation South Africa.
