Guy Pearson (Principal) reports: "At assembly today (26th April 2019) we were privileged to listen to an address by Ismail Rawoot who matriculated from Bishops in 2013. Ismail is a final year medical student at Stellenbosch University and is a recipient of the Stellenbosch Medical Fund Bursary. Part of his bursary obligations includes visiting his old high school to inspire students to pursue careers that uplift rural and disadvantaged communities. The aim is also to highlight the skills and experience gained at Bishops in order to pursue his career path and to acknowledge the impact which the teachers who taught him had in shaping him into the young man that he is today. For the full text of his speech, please click HERE. It was very appropriate considering that we celebrate Freedom Day on Sunday."
