Media Statement by the Heads of the Wynberg Campus of Schools

Friday 7 October 2021:  The Wynberg Campus of Schools is deeply shocked to learn of the fatal shooting of two individuals over the weekend of 2 October. On behalf of the Wynberg Campus of Schools community, we offer our sincere condolences and support to the family and friends of the deceased.

While our schools are closed for the October break, any members of the Wynberg Campus of Schools community in need of counselling or debriefing are encouraged to contact our counselling departments.

Yours sincerely
