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.

Steeped in tradition and values, the ethos of our school is encapsulated in the motto “Supera Moras” (Conquer Difficulties). It rests on four key pillars – academics, sports, service, and culture – all aimed at fostering well-rounded development in students.

Wynberg Boys’ High School’s commitment to fostering comprehensive skills development is in line with other top boys’ schools globally, as highlighted by the International Boys’ Schools Coalition
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.
