Debating

Debating is a cultural activity that allows pupils the opportunity to develop important skills and so gain wit, flair and confidence.

C.B.C. Boksburg is a member of the SACEE (South African Council for English Education) debating league.  In the past the team has been very successful, getting as far as the finals.  The enthusiasm and dedication shown by those boys contributes positively to their cultural development.

CBC Boksburg Pipe-Band

The CBC pipe band was founded in 1939, playing its first competition in 1943. The success achieved on several occasions during the 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s was South African Junior Champions

In 2001 a renewed effort was undertaken to revive the band. In April 2005 we played in our first competition as part of a combined CBC Boksburg / Jeppe Novice Juvenile Pipe Band. Since this date we have taken part in South African Junior Pipe Band Championships and a continuously placed in the top 3.

We currently have the required equipment and uniforms as well as a dedicated team of tutors including Matthew Keyzer and Jared Vorster both CBC Old Boys. The Band currently is in desperate need of new learners for pipes and drumming .

We practise on a Monday evening from 18:00 to 19:00.

After every matric valendictory the pipe band has played for our matrics with memories to carry for a life-time.

We need to continue and build on this cultural heritage of the CBC Boksburg Boys.
