VIDEO: Cornwall Hill College celebrates 20th founders’ day

Cornwall Hill College celebrated its founders' day on Friday, 1 June 2018, marking twenty years for the Irene school.

Cornwall Hill College in Irene opened a new clubhouse last Friday to celebrate the upmarket private school’s 20th founders’ day.

The clubhouse bears the name of one of the first families to enrol their children at Cornwall, Bolus.

The family suffered a tragedy when all but one of the members lost their lives in a car accident in 2000.

Accident survivor Hannah Bolus officially opened the clubhouse.

“Hannah’s parents – Gerard and Janine Bolus – were one of the first families to enrol their children, Joshua and Tatum, at Cornwall,” marketing manager Britt van der Knaap said.

Afterwards, staff, learners, board members and parents gathered in the hall where they were treated to musical performances by an orchestra, school choir, pipe band and marimba band.

Learners also took part in the founder’s day tradition of eating ice cream. Ice cream has been served at the school on this day since the school’s inception.

Cornwall alumnus and Ernst & Young young tax professional of the year, Karl Frenzel, encouraged learners at the college to make an impact on the world.

The college prides itself on a 100 percent matric pass rate.
