RIP Desmond Tutu

We are saddened to hear of the passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

We are saddened to hear of the passing of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, among so many other things, the Visitor to the school from 1986 to 1996 - a great servant of the Church and the stand-out voice for so many important causes. Truly a great South African. May he rest in eternal peace.
