Camps Bay Schools Celebrate 118th Birthday! 🎉

Yesterday, we celebrated a remarkable milestone at Camps Bay High School—our 118th anniversary! Before mid-year exams began, we gathered for a heartfelt assembly filled with memories and tributes to the incredible individuals who have shaped our school community.

One of the highlights was honouring Mr. Dennis Abrahams, our beloved caretaker known as "The Godfather," who served the school for an amazing 36 years. Siyanda Mxi, our RCL Head, gave a touching speech, saying, “Mr. Abrahams’ energy, wisdom, and creative flair made him a beloved figure, leaving an indelible mark on our community.” The Dennis Abrahams Quadrangle, named in his honour, stands as a testament to his immense contributions.

We also had the pleasure of hearing from alumna Cassidy Nicholson, Class of 2014. Introduced by Head Prefect Fergus Tayler, Cassidy—now a professional actress, screenwriter, casting director, and stand-up comedian—reflected on her journey at Camps Bay High. She shared, “Camps Bay is the school that let us become the best versions of ourselves. The teaching wasn’t rigid, and every time we connect with old friends, we always end up talking about our life at Camps Bay High School and what it means to us.”

Our principal, Mr. Louis Mostert, who started his teaching career here in 1987 and became principal in 2020, shared some insights into our rich history. “The original Camps Bay School opened on 28 May 1906 with Mrs. Edith M. Adcock as the principal. By 1912, we had 42 students, and a new school building was constructed, which now houses Camps Bay Primary’s Preparatory Campus. In 1969, Camps Bay High officially opened on Lower Kloof Road, and over the years, we’ve grown into one of Cape Town’s most cherished learning institutions.”

Reflecting on what makes Camps Bay Schools so special, Mostert said, “It’s not just the breathtaking views but the people who make up our community—the educators, the pupils, and the parents. The true uniqueness of Camps Bay lies in the lasting connections formed here.”

As we celebrate 118 years, we look forward to continuing our legacy of educational excellence, community spirit, and cherished memories. Here's to many more years of "Striving for the Highest" at the "School beside the foam! 🎓🏫✨
