A MESSAGE FROM MR R STEPHENSON
To the Muir College community
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for the warm welcome my wife and I have received since we arrived last week. I am excited to work with all stakeholders to ensure that Muir College continues to produce the leaders of the future.
Mr. Robin Stephenson
2015 NATIONAL SENIOR CERTIFICATE COLLECTION

MUIR CHOIR TAKE THE GOLD
The Muir College Choir pulled out all the stops at this year's ATKV Regional Choir Competition. Our boys sung their hearts out to win over not only the judges, but the audience too. The judges were impressed by our boys and we received an ATKV Gold achievement. The choir now waits to hear if they have made it through to the national competition later this year in Stellenbosch. We will publish the videos of their performances once our network issues have been resolved.

TEKKIE TAX DAY
On the 26th of April 2016, the Muir College boys and staff celebrated ''Tekkie Tax'' day in support of the Uitenhage SPCA. A donation of R 10.00 was made in return for a sticker and R 35.00 for a sticker and shoe laces. All the boys and staff were dressed in their school uniforms and work attire with their favorite pair of tekkies. Quite a funny look, but all to raise R 4403.50 for the Uitenhage SPCA.
