STOP HUNGER is a volunteer-based effort through which our  40 learners packaged  10 000 meals in 3 hours.  Each package provides a serving for 6 and costs R12.

 It is currently an international organisation. More than 20 million meals have been provided.

 FBC donated R 2000  and provided 40 volunteers to purchase the ingredients and package the meals.

 Our 10 000 meals are to be distributed to orphanages in Western Cape during this week.

 We hope to donate R 4000 by August 2015. We rely on our parents and learners to donate the money during the year.

 Statistics provided by STOP HUNGER:

  • More than 1 billion people do not have enough to eat.
  • In developing countries 10.9 million children under age five die each year from a hunger-related cause.
  • In Western Cape – more than 10 000 orphans need to be fed.

Argus Quizz


We wish to congratulate our TEAM of bright, self-sufficient, self-driven and amazingly bright learners on being placed SECOND in The Cape Argus Food Lover’s Market High Schools’ Quiz.

 After a gruelling 7 weeks of studying each Monday to Fridays’ papers, and being quizzed every Monday, they made it through to the semi-finals at the Artscapes Theatre on Monday 18th August.

 Carl Wastie entertained a packed auditorium with comedy untill Nigel Pearce began quizzing the final 8 schools in the semi-finals.  Our team comfortably made it through to the final of 4 teams but narrowly lost by only 2 points.

 The competition began with 134 participating teams so this in itself is a phenomenal achievement.

 We are truly proud of The TEAM:  Adam Pandit, Simone Cornellison, Milan Chavda, Marco Ribeiro and Sean Weber (photograph from left to right).  They kept their ‘cool’ amidst huge pressure against schools who have competed for many years.

 They also received many compliments from other  teachers and headmasters for their calm, intelligent and quick ‘buzzer responses’.  They each won R2000 and earned a whopping R25 000 for the school.

 We are in so proud!!!!

Early in June, Len Lawson and myself contemplated on whether or not the cold weather here in the Western Cape would affect the feeding patterns of smaller carp in such a way that the bigger carp could feed and obviously then take our lines. Both of us being educators had that weekend to ourselves and knew this was our chance.


Yaseen Mowzer [GRADE 10] and Joshua Heyns [GRADE 9] qualified to take part in the final round on the 12th September from 9:00 to 13:00

 Congratulations! We are sure that you will do us proud.
