White Rhino Trail

Thu, Apr 20, 2017

A total of 13 Bishops boys in Grade 11, two LEAP students and 3 staff spent 7 days in KZN. The boys were divided into three groups and had a very special time in the bush. Highlights of lion sightings and getting charged by a female white rhino were offset by the very real spectre of poaching. The group encounered 3 white rhino carcasses in a small area of the Imfolozi Park. It is hoped that Bishops can continue to find ways of helping these fine animals.

W.C. rowing Championships

Mon, Feb 20, 2017

This weekend the Western Cape Rowing Championships were held at Elgin Country club. The Regatta ran smoothly in the morning section of the day, with races not being effected by the wind too much; however as the day progressed the wind picked up and, as a result, many of the races after lunch were cancelled. After discussion between the officials and heads of clubs it was decided that a select few races were to be held, all races would now be 1000m rather than 1800m for the senior crews. The results were as follows. All crews still had a good day with our junior crews once again being commended on their sportsmanship. JM15A 8x: 2nd. JM16A 2-:1st, 2nd and 3rd. JM15B 4x: 1st and 4th JM16B 1x: 1st and 5th. JM19 1st 4+: 2nd JM 19 1st 4-: 1st JM 15B 8x: 2nd JM19 2nd 4+: 1st and 2nd. JM 19 1st 2-: 1st; 2nd; 3rd and 5th.
