Winter is in the air and so is love! πŸ’˜

At GHS, unexpected and exciting encounters are the norm, as Raquel and Claudio discovered first-hand 13 years ago. Fast forward to today and we’re thrilled to announce that we’re celebrating the β€˜official’ union of these two past students, which is a result of them meeting all those years ago on our Newlands campus!

"It was an amazing experience. We only have good memories from the school and the city, our host families and our colleagues,” says newlywed (IG). β€œCape Town was the best choice of our lives … my husband stayed for six months while I stayed for only one month. But it changed our lives forever.”
