It is confirmed that Sibusisu Nkosi of Umjindi (Barberton), Mpumalanga represented the Golden Lions at the recent Craven Week for Under 16 Schools Rugby teams.
Sibusiso is the second recipient of the Clive Hatch Education Scholarship.
The Clive Hatch Scholarship has been established to provide the opportunity for financially disadvantaged boys of all races living in Mpumalanga who, despite difficult and challenging circumstances, have shown a will to succeed the opportunity to attend Tsessebe House, Jeppe High School for Boys.
Clive Hatch himself a Jeppe Old Boy established the fund after his retirement from active politics hoping to contribute to the future leadership of the province and to demonstrate that there are politicians who are not only there for themselves.
Jeppe High School for Boys is Johannesburg’s oldest boys only public school having been established in 1890 in Fairview, Johannesburg.
The book Historic Schools of South Africa states “perhaps more than any other Johannesburg school, Jeppe reflects the history and changing character of the city and has always been a melting pot for children of diverse socioeconomic, language and cultural backgrounds.”
Recognised as one of South Africa’s Top 20 boys schools, the defining characteristics of the men it produces often centre around the principles of loyalty, honour and friendship. Whilst many Jeppe pupils have gone on to become captains of industry, famous politicians and international sportsmen, it is the ability of the school to shape the characters of boys into men which is its greatest success.
