Lawhill Maritime Centre

Simon’s Town School’s Lawhill Maritime Centre began as a pilot programme in 1995. The aim of the programme was to support job creation and employment in South Africa by providing 15 to 18-year-old students with maritime-related knowledge and skills while they were still at school, thereby increasing their prospects for post-school employment or admission to maritime-related courses at tertiary institutions.

The programme – which involved members of industry, Safmarine, educationalists and Simon’s Town School – aimed to stimulate maritime awareness among young people, attract them to the shipping industry and provide the industry with high quality, skilled and knowledgeable employees.

Since its inception, more than 300 young South Africans have passed through the Lawhill programme, many of them pursuing successful careers in the maritime industry, both ashore and at sea, while others have gone on to make their mark in other industries.

Because the Lawhill Maritime Centre receives no state funding, its students – the majority of who come from financially-stressed homes – are reliant on bursaries provided by maritime and related industries to fund their education from Grade 10 to 12.

Rondebosch Boys’ High School

The Rondebosch High School for Boys was established in 1897 and today encompasses a high, junior and pre-school.

The continual development of the extensive school and boarding buildings and expansive fields and grounds has been overseen by successive prep and high school Headmasters, parent committees and governors. Many of these facilities were funded by ‘old boys’, who continue to support Rondebosch through the Old Boys’ Union.

Rondebosch Boys’ Schools are committed to the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of education embracing academic, cultural and sporting endeavours, diversity, and a sense of service to one’s community, spiritual worth and tradition.
