Educational Trust




The State provided the original school buildings and sports fields. However, from 1983 new developments were to be paid for by school funds. In view of this, the WBHS Educational Trust was formed by Headmaster Roy Couzens, in 1984.

While the day-to-day running costs are covered by school fees, many of the modern facilities utilised daily by the boys of Westville, are funded by the Trust. In earlier days these include the the Tom Stokes Auditorium, Media and Computer Centres. In more recent times the Hockey Astro-turf, the Waterpolo Pool and the Student Centre. These successful projects reflect the financial support received by the Trust from the community of this fine school.

All parents are expected to invest in the present and future success of the School by donating, either as an annual payment or by monthly debit order. The Educational Trust is recognised by the South African Revenue Service and in terms of Section 18A of the Income Tax Act, donations to the Educational Trust are tax deductible. There are 6 elected Trustees representing the Parents, the Past Pupils, the Headmaster and the Staff.  The Trust accounts are audited, and the financial statements are available.

The bank details are Standard Bank, Code 051 001, Account 050 345 605. Potential donors are invited to contact the school by calling 031-267 1330 or by emailing for more detailed information.

Thank you to past and present parents who continue to support the WBHS Educational Trust.
