Beyond 125 Campaign

The 125 Campaign was launched in 2019 with the intention of raising funds to advance the school’s strategic plans. Due to the interruption of Covid, the 125 Campaign had to take a back seat to the many urgent challenges the school faced during that period.

In 2023, the year of the College’s 125th birthday, we are officially relaunching the Beyond 125 Campaign with renewed energy and vision. The Beyond 125 Campaign will pick up where the 125 Campaign left off and continue for the next five years as we work towards our goal of raising R125 million.
