Selborne College Boys' School, East London

School Information: Selborne College Boys' School

 

Today, as Selborne College carries its standard proudly in the ranks of South Africa's eminent schools, it keeps its traditions at heart: the solemn Ceremony of the Key, instituted in 1924 at the unveiling of the War Memorial statue of the young soldier that stands in front of the school, still takes place on Founders' Day. This is when the boys reaffirm their recognition of the achievements and sacrifices of the past and of their responsibilities to the future.

Selborne has built up an enviable reputation on the sports field and over the years has produced 56 Springboks. Among these Springboks are Geoff Chubb (Cricket), member of parliament Andre de Wet and Ray Carlson (Rugby), Jonty Skinner (Swimming), and the Scheckter brothers, Jody and Ian, who made their mark in international motor racing, Jody as Formula One world champion for Ferrari in 1979. Selborne's most recent Springboks include Michael Orsmond (Wave-ski), Mark Boucher (Cricket) and rugby players Keith and Mark Andrews, Andre Vos and Brent Russell.
