Fairbairn College received an invitation from Sun International Grand West for 8 of our learners to attend the INSPIRED STAGES WORKSHOP. This workshop is to be held at Grand West from Monday 29th June to Friday 3rd July.

This unique opportunity is geared towards teenagers who love the stage and performing as musicians, vocalists or dancers. Each day will be jam packed with guests and mentors and the week ends with 150 teenagers producing and performing their own show.

This event is valued at R1500 – 00 and Fairbairn College was fortunate enough to be offered 8 sponsored places for this workshop.

We are proud of…

Justin Vercuil and Jason Maneveld have been selected for the WP u/18 boys North Zone Invitational team that will take part in the Zonal tournament during the holiday period. Well Done!!!

We are proud of…

Zolisa Mama has been selected for the WP U/19A Cricket team that will take part in the annual Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Cricket Week.

The Coca-Cola Khaya Majola U/19 week is the tournament that all young Cricketers dream of taking part in. This is where the country’s future stars show the skills they have learned over all the years of playing schools’ cricket. The top provinces take part and the competition is extremely tough with a strength vs strength format. If one performs exceptionally well here, there is the possibility of being selected for the SA Schools side or the Schools’ Colts team. The top performers in those chosen teams also stand a good chance of being chosen for the SA U/19 Squad and from there on one’ Cricket career can only go on to bigger things.
