The true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest. – Simon Sinek

We are very proud of our Grade 7 learners and would like to congratulate them on their dedication and hard work. We value and appreciate every Grade 7 learner. This past Friday we announced a group of children as leaders. Congratulations to these learners! I encourage all Grade 7s to continue the dedication they have shown thus far.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the following boys on their inclusion in the Blue Bulls rugby team as well as the boys who have been included in the Private Schools (Pretoria) rugby team, known as the “Rooikatte”, for 2022. May these opportunities help every chosen boy to advance their rugby careers and develop each one to his full potential.

SANESA: Saddleseat
Carmia and Sulize van den Berg will be competing in the SANESA Saddleseat division this weekend, 21 and 22 May, in Parys (Free State). We wish them well in their qualifiers.



It’s time to get your winter wardrobe ready and throw out what you no longer need! Should you wish to get involved in the Winter Jacket Project with Doxa Deo, please send all the warm jackets that no longer fit your requirements to school. During May we will collect jackets, jerseys and coats to donate to people in our surrounding areas, including Olifantsfontein and Tembisa.

Important: Write a blessing, prayer or message of hope on a piece of paper and put it in the jacket pocket. The person who receives the jacket, will then also receive your special message.





Visit us at Tuck In for a large selection of tasty lunchbox options. Foundation Phase will receive their lunchbox orders at their classrooms!
