There is no better feeling quite like trying on that College blazer and basher for the very first time! It is an especially proud moment and it should be experience by every College boy...

There is nothing like trying on that College basher and blazer for the very first time!

That undeniable sense of pride and privilege in being accepted into a band of brothers – a select group of young men who get to pick up the flag and carry the school forward. That feeling that anything and everything is possible.

It is a feeling that only a College boy will understand.

During 2016 we launched our very first #BigBasher campaign to help bring this feeling to ALL of our boys.

From now until the end of the year is the time when parents will start frequenting the College Shoppe in search of blazers, bashers, uniforms, sporting kit and other essential items for the boys who will be starting at College in January next year – an exciting time in any new College  boy’s life!

It is also the time when the realisation hits home how much these necessary items actually cost! We realised last year that there were a number of boys, new College recruits and also current College boys, who struggled to afford a new blazer and basher or who were unable to replace blazers they had outgrown during the year.

Our #BigBasher initiative set out to raise R30 000 to offer 20 boys some help in being able to afford that new blazer and basher and to start the year off properly!

Thanks to your support we were able to do much more! In total we raised R47 000 in pledges and helped 31 College boys experience this feeling!

We are back again this year and hope to build on last year’s impact!

R50 000 is our target for #BigBasher 2017 !

You can pledge to support a Full Basher, Half Basher or a custom amount of your own choosing.

The #BigBasher support is allocated in association with the College Shoppe who have shelves full of “good feelings” just waiting to be experienced!

Please take a few moments to make your commitment…
