“The characteristic spirit of our community manifests itself in friendliness, manners, and mutual respect. In the spirit of our school motto Supera Moras, every Wynberg Man is encouraged to strive for greater heights and never give up. We are serious about, and committed to: being a boys’ only school; structure and accountability for actions; good traditions; pastoral care for our boys; our Four Pillars; offering opportunities for all; inclusivity and diversity.”
