CBC celebrated their 55th annual speech and prize giving in style this year as the stage was lit and beautifully decorated, all thanks to the dedicated and committed members of the SDC. The decorations served to depict the values upheld by the school. It was a splendid event to celebrate and crown the hardworking young men of CBC for their tireless efforts in academic, sport and cultural activities.

It was surely “A Night under the Stars” for the senior students at CBC, a spectacular event organized by the Leavers Committee. The event would not have been a huge success if it wasn’t for the support of the SDC and Mrs. Edwards in conjunction with a team decorators led by designer Tammy Crawford who transformed the hall into a fantastic star lit extravaganza.
Friday, the 7th of October, marked a special day for the Scripture Union, which saw the induction for the 2017 Leadership board and the celebration of the outgoing board of 2016 at the CBC grotto.
The event featured former CBC student Mcupi Ndebele who was the guest speaker, visitors from the Scripture union offices, the ladies from Girls College and the young men from Milton High School. The guest speaker advised the young men about how they can face the impending difficulties that lie ahead with guidance of the Lord. He did dwell on the theme of purpose and destiny.
