Father and Son
We have hosted Father and Son evening - night camps here at our school.
The fathers and sons pitch their tents on the rugby field close to the school hall and they braai together.
It is Mr. Derrick Schroeder, previous chairperson of the School Governing Body, who initiated this memorable event a few years ago. He has the passion for the fathers to engage with their sons in a most meaningful father-son relationship. Different speakers have addressed our fathers and sons on the Friday evening. This year Mr. Werner Cloete who hosts the Father- and- son evenings at Paarl Gymnasium School, spoke with passion about the importance of the Fathers hearts who need turn to their children and the children’s hearts to their fathers. Each year our sons receive their Father-son certificates after our guest speaker has spoken.
Mr. Gerald Joshua, whose forte it is to let people engage in enjoyable games facilitate the games every year. Our dads and sons participate in these games and this is an opportunity for fathers and sons to invest in their relationship.
Mr van Schalkwyk
