24 Sep 2016: Saturday afternoon - School Visit
Andre Beukes, the current headmaster of Germiston High School, has made the school available for a visit on Saturday 24 September (Heritage Day). The school will be open for us from 2:00 for 2:30pm until 4:30pm, and we will be able to go into classrooms, staff-room, and hall. The school is still looking good. They have 26 extramural activities, and still excel in rowing. As of three years ago, the school embraced e-learning and replaced textbooks and blackboards with tablets, data projectors, and Wi-Fi. Contact person for the school visit is Rodney Jones.

24 Sep 2016: Saturday evening - Dinner at Codfather Restaurant
Gail (Louw) Styger has arranged a dinner to be held at the Codfather Restaurant in Sandton, from 6:00pm for 6:30pm. The per person cost is confirmed at R250 a head, which includes a welcome drink, assorted food platters, and gratuities. There will be a cash bar. Money (cash or credit card) will be taken at the door, so it's going to be important that we don't have any no-shows - because then the rest of us have to cough up for those people. Please confirm attendance in advance.

25 Sep 2016: Sunday morning - Breakfast at Randpark Golf Course
Arranged by Alice (van Straaten) Taylor , the breakfast will be at 9:00am or 9:30ish.

25 Sep 2016: Sunday afternoon - Golf at Randpark Golf Course
