Founders' Day Assembly
8 July 2019
On Monday, 8 July 2019, we celebrated our school's 100th birthday.
All the students (Gr. 00-12), alumni, parents and friends of St George's attended the Founders' Day Assembly in the tent on the school field. We were also honoured to have nine descendants of Bishop Nelson Fogarty, who started our school in 1919, present at the assembly.
Our keynote speaker, Michelle McLean-Bailey (Prep Class of 1984, Miss Universe 1992), spoke about her memorable experiences at St George's.
The School also received birthday wishes from Bishop Luke Pato, Father Mike Yates (Acting Chairperson of the School Council), Ms Jacqui Bruys (Chairperson of the PTFA), the House captains of the three houses.
Adopt A Tree Project
8 July 2019
After the Founders' Day Assembly on Monday, 8 July 1919, the school launched the Adopt A Tree Project.
This was done during a Tree Planting Ceremony with the Fogarty Family descendants. The members of the Fogarty Family came from the United Kingdom and South Africa especially to attend the Centenary Celebrations of our school which their grand-father (or great grand-father) started in 1919.
The 100 Trees Committee identified 100 trees on the school grounds which are up for adoption. The Fogarty Family planted a Wild Olive tree, as the 1919 tree, close to the College.
The Centenary Celebrations Gala was held on 11 July 2019 and was the highlight of our Centenary Celebrations Week. Alumni, parents and staff attended this black tie event at the beautiful Droombos venue just outside Windhoek.
The speakers for the evening our Mr John Powell (Class of 1943), Mrs Riette Hanekom (Former Executive Head of St George's) and Mr John Mbako (Class of 2018).
At the Gala we were able to launch the St George's Bursary Fund and with the ticket sales for the Lucky Draw we were able to raise N$20 000 for the Bursary Fund.
We would like to thank our MC, Mrs Afra Schimming-Chase (alumni and current parent) as well as the event organisers, JAM Events for an unforgettable evening.
