We have been having auditions for our play for the Grade 1 and 2 boys.  What an exceptionally talented bunch of boys we have at Bishops.  We look forward to the decision as to who will play what role. Please know that ALL boys in Grade 1 and 2 are involved in the play and will be allocated roles suited to them.  We are very excited to begin our rehearsals.

Thank you to all those who have dropped off Easter Eggs for our collection.  Some of our boys will be visiting Old Age homes in the area to deliver some of these eggs to the aged.  Others will go to various shelters and under privileged schools in Cape Town, Meals on Wheels and other worthy recipients.  Your generous donations are very welcome and although there is no pressure on you to donate eggs, your contribution is most gratefully received.  Making a small difference in the life of some, means so much to them.
