Pride & Passion
Boishaai Primary 💪

Boishaai 48 Gimnasium 0

During the first week of August 2019, the picturesque Boland town, Paarl, is transformed by colourfully decorated trees in the main road, banners of either shades of blue and white, green, yellow and maroon, or a light green.

This, together with thousands of supporters, old boys and girls from around the globe, who flock to Paarl, is a sign that it’s time for the annual Inter Schools in Paarl.

The biggest local derby of them all – the Paarl interschools between Gimnasium and Boys’ High – takes place on Saturday.

There have been years when this traditional end-of-season encounter has determined who the top school in the country is.

Harvest time at Capensis Fijnbosch Wine Farm situated above Bartinney in Stellenbosch.
South Africa’s Western Cape can be called both the oldest wine region of the New World and the newest wine region of the Old World. Capensis skillfully combines these two facets — the oldest and the newest — of Western Cape winemaking. It embodies the unparalleled quality that comes from old, gnarled vines planted in some of the oldest soils in the world, and it represents the young energy of a new generation of winemakers determined to make world-class wines with state-of-the-art techniques.
Capensis, meaning “from the Cape,” is a leader in bringing South Africa to the forefront as a world-class Chardonnay producer.

Surrounded by vineyards and located next door to a working winery – The Covey is situated 1.5km outside the village beneath the imposing Middagkrans Mountain.  The cottage, which is next door to the owners house, consists of a living room with galley kitchen, bedroom with king size bed and shower room.  Opening off the living room there is a private stoep and pretty walled flower garden. The cottage is comfortably furnished – 100% percale linen on the bed with feather pillows (or synthetic if you prefer) there are ceiling fans and plantation shutters on the windows. The fully equipped galley kitchen has an electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher and bar height table.  Outside on the stoep there are comfy chairs and a small table for eating al fresco, as well as a weber type BBQ. Beyond the cottage garden there is a tranquil lawn interspersed with mature trees. Use of the swimming pool is by arrangement. There are three lively but friendly dogs!
