wynberg old boys’ union
Fostering Lifelong Brotherhood and Enhancing Education Through Scholarships and Initiatives

While alumni of the Wynberg Boys’ Schools have played a big part in the life of the schools since the early 19th century, the Wynberg Old Boys’ Union (WOBU) was formally constituted in 1929. The Union aims to maintain the relationships and bonds formed at school by offering various activities and events. The Union also raises funds for various school initiatives like scholarships and grants. Old Boys support the school by helping in various activities, such as sports coaching, tutoring, mentoring, and providing services and skills as needed by the Wynberg Schools.

Union Activities

Annual Dinners and Class Reunions: WOBU hosts an annual Cape Town dinner for its members during Wynberg Heritage Week in August and a gathering in Gauteng during October. Both these events are supported by the annual Matric reunions of Old Wynbergians, and are mirrored by groups of Old Boys who gather across the globe. All these are opportunities for alumni to come together, celebrate their schools, share experiences, and celebrate their collective history and achievements.

Sports and Events: WOBU is actively involved in supporting sporting and cultural events, reflecting the ongoing passion and dedication of its members to the school’s athletic endeavors. Among the highlights are the annual summer and winter sports matches against the High School teams, and the more cerebral debating and chess contests held during Heritage Week. 

Lifelong Connections: At the core of the WOBU is networking and business support for its members, assisting them to maintain lifelong connections with their alma mater and fellow old boys, and fostering a keen sense of community.

Giving Back, Paying Forward
The Legacy Fund

The Wynberg Legacy Fund, led by Jan de Waal and Karl Westvig, with Jacques Kallis as the patron, is an Old Boys’ initiative to ensure the viability of the school into the future. 

Phase one of The Legacy Fund aims to secure R100 million in pledges by 2027, building an endowment fund that generates significant interest. These gains will be used to provide financial assistance to students who would not ordinarily be able to afford to attend Wynberg, and to assist the school with capital infrastructure projects.
