THE FUTURE OF ST ALBAN’S COLLEGE
St Alban’s College finds itself nearing its Diamond Jubilee in 2023 in a strong and confident position. Each decade of the school’s existence has had its own challenges, framed by the history of the country and the global economy. The foundation and magnetism of this success has been based on relationships and people and how these individuals have collectively influenced and guided the lives of the boys in their care to ensure that they remain committed to making a difference in South Africa and the world beyond our boundaries. One can often be spellbound by conversations with Old Boys about Harry Birrell, Jurie du Toit, John Boje and Tim Bavin (and many others) and how these individuals have changed the trajectory of their lives for good.
We are fortunate at this point in the College’s history to have incrementally gained enough traction which has enabled the College to be in a position of financial stability and modest strength. The College’s finances are healthy, and the school is growing which allows us to confidently start conversations regarding fundraising.
Why would we want to fundraise? The aim is not to propel the College to a position of opulence but to further our cause of ‘preparing young men for life’ and to equip our boys with the life skills which will enable them to make a positive contribution in an open and dynamic global society.
