World Schools Festival

After two years in the Winelands, the festival now moves inland and will take place at the historic Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool, affectionately known as Affies, in 2020. The school, which boasts alumni of the stature of Fourie du Preez, Pierre Spies and AB de Villiers, celebrates its centenary next year, and first team coach Jaco Koch said it was the perfect opportunity to showcase the school.

“It will be an honour to host an event of this magnitude, particularly as it comes at such a momentous time in our history,” said Koch. “Plans are already in place to add our own touch to the event, and I can guarantee that it will be even bigger and better come 2020.”
