Parktown Boys at The Wits Experience

Five of our top boys had the opportunity to interact with various professors of the University of the Witwatersrand and enjoy Wits' great academic atmosphere. The programme also included a visit to different faculties/schools of Wits: Geology, Geography, Environmental Sciences, Actuarial Sciences, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics and Molecular and Cell Biology.

The programme will end on Friday the 14th of October, when our boys will have to present their findings with regards to the challenges they faced during this programme.

What is going on in the classroom?


It is not simple to build an structure using 500 g of spaghetti and glue that can prevent an egg from being totally destroyed when falling to the ground from 10 meters high.

This is what Reece Matthews, Cole Gallant and Tevin Roebeck achieved during the Term 3 Grade 10 Science project.

The egg is still inside the structure… intact! Congratulations!

News of our Old Boys!

Brace yourselves, Tabraiz Shamsi (Old Boy 2008) the Chinaman from South Africa has already landed at the RCB camp. The 26-year-old has the knack of turning the bowl a long way on both sides of the wicket and has often left batsmen bamboozled with his wrong un’.

Tabraiz Shamsi

Tabraiz shot into limelight with his impressive showing at the Caribbean Premier League where he was the leading wicket taker for his franchise with 11 wickets. Tabraiz was born in Johannesburg and plays his domestic cricket for the Titans back in South Africa.

Interestingly, Shamsi wanted to become a magician as a kid. He has surely succeeded in becoming one on the field! With a lot of variations up his sleeve, Shamsi is an enchanter with the the ball in his hands.

Allan Donald welcomed Shamsi to the bold squad and said, “Meet our new mysterious spinner. He has arrived from Johannesburg this morning. Yet to get to know him a lot better but I’ve seen him bowl for the Titans. He is very successful with what he’s done in the past couple of years so I think Dan has made a good buy for us. So lookout for a lot of mystery balls in there!”

Do not forget to watch out for his amusing and entertaining ‘bus driver celebration!’ We welcome Shamsi on board and wish him all the luck for his first-ever IPL stint!
