Guest Speaker:

The OD Union is proud to announce that Mr. Antony Reeler, who will be joining Bishops as the new Principal in July 2020, will be the guest speaker at this year’s annual OD Dinner.
Tony is a vastly experienced educator, having taught at Grey and having held leadership positions at Pinelands High School and Rondebosch Boys High School. Since July 2010, Tony has been the Headmaster at Pretoria Boys High School, a position that he has filled with great distinction. He is a strong believer in the benefits of single-sex education, particularly for boys in their teenage years.  His aim is that each boy should be the best version of himself that he can be. The academic programme of a school should always take priority and boys must be encouraged to reach their full potential and beyond, if possible, being stretched by teachers who take them beyond the constraints of the curriculum. 
Do join us on 5 March 2020 at Kelvin Grove to welcome Tony to the Bishops Family.
