Once again, we cannot express our gratitude enough to the Old Boys who have made generous bulk contributions and to the ones who continue with their monthly contribution. For those who would still like to donate/sign up for R250 monthly debit order please feel free to contact me; we still have a large portion of the budget uncovered.

Without your continued support we would not be able to provide the school boys with the facilities they enjoy as well as scholarships for those who are enjoying this benefit and would otherwise not be able to attend a school such as Parktown Boys High School.
