Mr Graham Steele

WBHS is pleased to announce the appointment of Graham Steele as the 10th Headmaster of the School. He assumes duty on 1 July 2019 following the retirement of Trevor Hall.

Mr Steele was formerly Headmaster of one of South Africa’s historic high schools, Kimberley Boys’ High, a post he has occupied since 2013.

He has a B Ed (Honours) degree and started his teaching career at Highveld Park High School (Mpumalanga) in 1997 before moving to Kimberley Boys’ High (KBHS). He has forged a fine reputation through his experience as a Deputy Principal and Headmaster of a boys high school during times of significant change in education in this country, which will be of great benefit to WBHS. His subject expertise lies in the disciplines of Science and Mathematics and he has contributed his curriculum skills as an examiner and provincial moderator of the Northern Cape Education Department. He firmly believes in the value of holistic education and the role of co-curricular activities in the all-round development of high school boys.

He is married to Carin, a teacher by profession, and has two children, a daughter currently in high school and a son at university.

Mr Steele has been an integral member of the SA State Boys’ High Schools forum for the past seven years and is consequently well informed and insightful of all the issues affecting fee-paying and boarding schools for boys in this country. We are very fortunate to have gained a Headmaster of his pedigree.

Dear Mr Steele

Thank you so much for all that you do for the boys.With the stop, start, stop situation I can just imagine what you and the staff have been through in having to constantly change timetables , classrooms, etc.

I admire you all for how you have overcome all the obstacles in your way.

For me as a parent, I was so happy that they got to go back to school yesterday – I literally got my son back!! He was so excited when I picked him up, could not wait to tell me the events of the day, mixing with his friends, the sport coaches, his beloved teacher. I actually had a tear in my eye. My gosh I am so happy to see him with that happy look again.

I am so grateful to you all.Thank you is a small word but gosh I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

We have the most amazing school.The Grade 11 boys and matric boys go out of their way to help and motivate our Gr 8 boys. My child speaks so much about them. He chatted with a friend over the weekend and he was telling them how our matrics and Grade 11 boys motivate them etc. and his friend could not believe it. At their school the Gr 11 and 12 boys ignore the Gr 8 boys. How sad. Our school has incredible leadership qualities.

So once again a very big THANK YOU from me.

(A WBHS Parent)
