OLD MOOIS

As early as 1907, when the first edition of the School Magazine, The Mooi, was produced, Old Boys of College were already being referred to as ‘Old Moois’, – a reference to the river that runs through Potchefstroom with the letters “OM” in brackets after their names.

Old Boys showed a continuing interest in the school that had formed them and equipped them so well for life. They have contributed towards the maintenance and addition of facilities at the school.

Projects undertaken by the Old Moois include:

  • Staff garden
  • The enlarged and modernised Ackermann centre
  • The refurbished classrooms.
