A Captain’s challenge

Posted Friday November 10, 2017 by College Giving

The College Foundation was proud to host the inaugural Maritzburg College Captains’ Dinner on the 2nd November 2017. And what better way to launch what we now hope will become an annual highlight on the College calendar, than by asking one of our most successful and recognisable Old Boys to be the guest speaker for the evening!

Mr Paul Harris, former Head Prefect (1967) and co-Founder of FirstRand, reflected on some of the fond memories and experiences he shared at College and provided some personal insight into what the building blocks of a successful corporate culture are – and emphasised that these were incredibly relevant to Maritzburg College as well.

Despite its struggles South Africa remains an exciting country in which to live and Paul’s challenge to all of us was to be active participants in the future of this country and of this school.

Each one of us can make a difference through committing our financial support, our time and our expertise to helping make a College a place where we really do “Change Lives and Shape Futures”!

Please take a few moments to consider pledging your support to College via a monthly gift.
