Best foot forward

Yesterday was back to school for most schools in Cape Town. This is School House at Bishops - the nick name for Diocesan College in the suburb of Rondebosch, one of Cape Town's oldest (started in 1849) and best known schools, which is very much modelled on the British public schools of old.

  3. Very much so! But not quite as expensive.

  4. There is a lot to be said for standards and traditions. Some schools here in the UK do not like sports days, some kids might discover that they are not winners. Oh dear, life is all about winning and losing. This looks like a good school.
