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 quite 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.

Parents and boys who frequent the College Shoppe in search of blazers, bashers, uniforms, sporting kit and other essential items for boys who are be starting at College or looking for replacement items they might have outgrown are hit with the realisation just how much these necessary items actually cost!

We were passionate about starting this appeal because of the 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.

Since inception our #BigBasher initiative has raised close to R100 000 and has helped countless boys be able to afford that new blazer and basher and to be proud of their school and themselves!

We are always in need of support to be able to match the enquiries and requests we receive and we would like to ask for your help.

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…
