Port Elizabeth – 05 September 2016 – This year Muir College Boys’ High School in Uitenhage extended their generosity to Thand’usana Babies Safe Home in Port Elizabeth, hosting their very first Charity Golf Day on 18 August 2016 at the The Hill, Port Elizabeth Golf Club in support of this independent Non-Profit Organisation (NPO).


    The Muir College Charity Golf Day that took place in Port Elizabeth attracted a number of local companies who were all very eager to jump in and help with sponsorships and donations for this cause.


    On 5 September 2016, Mr. Robin Stephenson, Headmaster of Muir College Boys’ High School visited Thand’usana Babies Safe Home to do the official handover of the funds that were raised at the Charity Golf Day. “The experience was truly heartwarming, we would really like to make this an annual event.” Mr. Stephenson explained.


    Lorna Lamerton, the House Mother of Thand’usana Babies Safe Home thanked Muir College for initiating the Charity Golf Day. “We very much appreciate that you kept us in mind!” Lorna added.


    Thand’usana Babies Safe Home is a temporary safe haven who cares for HIV infected or ill-treated babies until a more permanent solution can be implemented. Thand’usana provides a safe and loving home for no more than six babies at a time and ensure that they are placed with the right families when the time comes. They are a self-governing NPO and rely mostly on the generosity and support of others. For more information and to get involved, visit: www.thandusana.co.za.


    The College Choir competed in the final of the ATKV-Applous Choir Competition this past week in Stellenbosch. This is a national competition promoting choir singing amongst school children. 185 choirs entered the competition and only 40 choirs were selected to compete in the finals.


    All excited and ready, the choir departed for Stellenbosch on Wednesday, 3 August, making the long 11 hour journey in the bus.


    On Thursday, 4 August, the competition day finally arrived. The competition was very tough with schools from all over the country taking part. The choir had an amazing performance, giving people goosebumps. They received a Silver award with a percentage of 76. We are extremely proud of this achievement.



    Please note that the 2015 National senior certificates are available for collection from the Muir College office from 08h00-15h00.
