Welcome to the Christian Brothers’ College, Boksburg website. We trust that you will get the information you require and get a taste of what life at College is all about. Of course no website can ever replace the real thing, so we hope you will come and visit us in person to get the full picture!

C.B.C. is one of the oldest and most distinguished day schools for boys in South Africa. We have a proud tradition of turning out young men who have become leaders in society not only in South Africa, but worldwide.

Today we have a modern campus equipped to handle the needs of boys striving to find meaning and purpose in their lives. This quest is no different than that of the founding Brothers in 1935.

What is a C.B.C. education all about? It is our desire, with the excellent staff that we have, to foster in College boys a love of God, a genuine intellectual curiosity and a search for truth, and to develop each boy’s talent, whether academic, musical, sporting or other, to the full. Each boy’s time with us must be a meaningful experience in his own search for excellence.

In the words of W.B. Yeates, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

 “Each person should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”   2  Corinthians 9:7. 

We are all intensely perplexed and disheartened, to say the least, by the recent senseless violence in our country and direct community.  I  have, however, experienced a taste of being part of the “Body of Christ” in all of this turmoil.  Although God certainly does not send pain and hurt, He is indeed in the pain and hurt, bringing His touch while experiencing the hurt with His children.  It is said that God has no hands but ours—we are part of God’s touch to those in pain when we reach out to those in need!  It has been heartwarming for me to see how folk in our College community have reached our to those in need.  The culture of giving is simply extraordinary—from parents, staff and indeed our boys all giving so freely  “Freely you have received, freely give.”  Matthew 10:8. 

This desire to give has not only been during the recent crisis but over the past few years.  I believe this culture of giving has enabled the College to respond to the current situation in the positive way that it has.  Without asking, folk have responded so generously.  On behalf of the many in need whom God has touched through your generosity, THANK YOU!  I know that those who give (many on a continuous basis) wish to remain anonymous in line with what Jesus teaches.  “When you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing so that your giving may be in secret.”   Matthew 6:3-4. 

Many trips are being made with all kinds of items to shelters in our community,  many litres of soup are being made to feed the hungry without congratulations or recognition—you are angels in disguise, the touch of God!  As much as they wish not to be mentioned, I believe a few very special people need to be mentioned for their consistent passion for bring Christ to those in need—Mrs Stoop, Mrs McCallum and The Edmund Rice Society Boys—thank you for your constant dedication.  Let us continue to pray for peace in our land. 

"  Live, Jesus, in our hearts forever. "
