Your even this evening was most dissappear.
My family and I stood on line to get tickets for an hour. Only to be told when ylwe finally got to the front of the queue that tickets were sold out. A complete waist of our time.

Very bad organising
What do you get when you combine a group of ballerinas and a first team rugby squad? Magic!
A new found respect for both sports which upon close reflection, demand strength, drills, perseverance and finesse. Thank you Bishops Diocesan College 1st XV rugby team for joining us, for lending some muscle and learning a different kind of lift!
The St John’s College U15s attended the 2022 U15 Indigo Water Polo tournament hosted by Parktown Boys' High School.

St John’s managed to pick up four wins from the four pool stages, seeing them advance to the quarterfinals. The boys met Bishops Diocesan College in the quarterfinals, claiming a hard-fought 5-2 victory. The semis saw the action heating up as the pick pitted St John’s against neighbours King Edward VII School, where our boys rose to the occasion with a 7-4 win over the old rivals.

The final match-up was between St John’s College and Selborne College , where our boys narrowly lost with a final score of 3-6 to secure the second spot in a tournament that featured 22 teams.
Thank you Bishops Diocesan College 1st XV for running a coaching clinic for our boys and girls yesterday. Hope you enjoyed it as much as our children did. Enkosi🙏🏾🏉 Bishops Rugby Bishops Rugby Supporters Club

Sunday was a fantastic day of cricket on tour for our junior A sides.

The U15A side beat Grey High by 7 wickets, and the U14A scored 322/8 in their 50 overs to help them beat Waterkloof by 20 runs.

A massive highlight of the day was Thaafier Japhta’s innings of 207 off 137 balls for the U14A.

Well done to all the cricketers.

Our Grade 11s went on leadership camp this week. It was an excellent platform for them to assess their expectations of their Matric year, and to discuss as group how to overcome any challenges that may lie ahead, the responsibility they carry and the exciting opportunity it is to lead our school in 2023.

Aidan and Daniel Richards were selected as part of the South African team to attend the Commonwealth Fencing games in London. Daniel had a very tough poule and made the top 64, and Adian made the top 32 in individual epee. In the team events, they were knocked out in the quarterfinals by Canada 45-33. It was a wonderful experience for both of them to meet other fencers from the Commonwealth. They are both awarded their distinction ties for Fencing.

Well done SACS!
The home side dominated territory and possession, but the brave SACS defence kept the boys in blue from scoring on a few occasions. An exciting last game of the season on the Piley!

Wynberg hosted our Bishops College 1st XV at the Hawthornden field on Saturday afternoon. The home side put in a fine performance, dominating the game with their set-pieces and hard-running forwards. Their rock-solid defence gave the boys from Bishops very little time and space with ball in hand. Well done to them! This was also the final game of the season for our talismanic captain, Bruce Sherwood, who will be on national duty for the next two Saturdays; all of the best to him in the green and gold.

Bishops competed at the National Individual Public Speaking and Debating Competition at Parklands College this weekend. Our boys did exceptionally well, and despite it being an individual competition, they were completely supportive of one another and worked as an excellent team. Competitors were impressed by the Bishops poise, eloquence, and evident intelligence of their speeches.

Five boys won places on the South African team.

Ché Nanoo placed twelfth overall and was a finalist for Impromptu Speaking and Persuasive Speaking. Divakaran Govender was also a finalist in Impromptu Speaking and Persuasive Speaking and placed seventh overall.

Jamie Chester won the Impromptu Speaking and Persuasive Speaking categories and placed fifth overall.

Ben Anderson won the Debating category and was runner-up in both Persuasive Speaking and Impromptu Speaking. He placed fourth overall.

Jacob Fried was a finalist in the Impromptu Speaking, Interpretative Reading and Persuasive Speaking categories. He placed first overall and won the competition. Well done team Bishops!

In the spirit of Ubuntu and to show appreciation and thanks to all those who work to keep Founders House running smoothly, the Founders' Matric boys hosted all staff at a dinner in the dining hall.

The boys planned everything leading up to the evening, prepared the gifts and dining hall for the guests, served the food, and cleaned up afterwards. Travel arrangements home again were also made for those who needed them.

Father Monwabisi joined the dinner and acknowledged the work that every member of staff contributed to the house, as well as the strong and respectful relations that our Founders boys have with those who work in the house.

It was an evening of role reversal, laughs, and service, and showed the essence of what it means to show respect to those who work to make their lives easier.
