What a way to end our 125th celebrations on a real ‘high note’ this past weekend! The KZNPO (KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra) under the baton of Lykele Temmingh and some of KZN’s top musical talent, delivered an EPiC (Epworth in Community) Christmas concert in our chapel. Close to 400 music lovers listened to and participated in a magical programme comprising soloists Andrew Butler, Nontobeko Bhengu and Njabulo Nzuza, the Epworth High School choir and organist Luke Holder.

In addition, a new young star was born! Eleven-year-old bagpiper Oliver Pentz boldly played through a sudden power cut, which ground his organ accompaniment to a halt. Unperturbed, Ollie’s focus and stunning delivery won a rousing ovation from the delighted audience. This EPiC event, sponsored by Parklane Spar, Spec Savers and the United Methodist Church, was a fitting exclamation mark to a year of gratitude and thanksgiving at our wonderful school.

Today, our high school pupils visited Marion Villa Retirement Home to sing carols and spread some Christmas cheer. They were greeted by Val Cameron (former music teacher), Val Bindon (Head of School 1986-1991), and Epworthian Joan Wells. Magic unfolded as Val Cameron played 'O Joyful Light' from memory while our pupils sang. It was a touching moment where Epworth’s past and present happily mingled.

“45 years ago we matriculated from Epworth School in Pietermaritzburg. Today five of us got together for a luncheon in Salt Rock. It was an absolute treat and we had a blast chatting, laughing and sharing stories. The years have not diminished the friendships we made at school and our active class of ‘78 WhatsApp group is a testament to this.” - Debbie Lane

The EPiC Legacy Siyacula Festival marked the closing of the 2023 partnership between Epworth’s Performing Arts department and music teachers from schools in the surrounding community.

School teachers and their pupils spent a morning engaging in various performing arts activities, culminating in a choral festival. What an organic and enriching experience being able to support and nurture others in our community – an intrinsic Epworth moment!

Epworthian Tanya Lane (Harris, class of 1985) braved the Amazon Jungle and completed The Jungle Ultra Marathon.

“I have always had a fear of The Jungle and was terrified at what I was about to do. I didn’t know if I could/would finish it, but I was definitely going to give it everything I could to try.” Tanya Lane describing her thoughts at the start of The Jungle Ultra Marathon.

New Head of Epworth High School

Epworth takes great pleasure in announcing that Mrs Dionne Redfern has been appointed as the Head of Epworth High School, effective 1 April 2024.

Dionne is an experienced and high-performing educator who exemplifies the characteristics and experience that the Epworth Board of Governors believes are critical for our high school. She has honed her educational skills and obtained extensive experience as a head, deputy head and HOD at various prestigious independent and government schools. An exemplary leader in the academic, sporting and cultural spheres, Dionne is sensitive to the considerations and challenges of both history and diversity. She has a caring nature and is dedicated to her spiritual life.

Dionne will be joining us from Stanford Lake College in the Limpopo province; we are delighted she is coming back to KwaZulu-Natal, where she attended Howick High School and the University of KwaZulu-Natal. We look forward to welcoming her to Epworth in 2024 and are excited for her to lead the High School into its next chapter.

Did you know that we have our own 125 Epworth wine?

Thank you to the Johnsen family from Vondeling and Bowwood Wines for bottling a fabulous 2019 Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon bearing our Epworth 125 label. Dr Bridget (Bozzie) Johnsen (Boswell, class of 1977) and her daughter Alexandra (Shura) (class of 2016) are both Epworthians and call Bowwood on the Vondeling Estate, in Paarl, their home.

Over and above being a vet, Bridget also runs her own Section 18A, tax-exempt, non-profit company and public benefit organisation, K2011127140 trading as PSI Projects. PSI projects is implementing the Epworth Legacy Project and drives the Paardeberg Sustainability Initiative, in addition to fundraising, research and collaborating on other projects, including “Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures”, which uses choral music to strengthen education around agriculture and climate change in 16 rural KZN schools.

Shura has recently resigned as the marketing manager for Vondeling, where she worked alongside mum Bridget and dad Julian, to finally embark on a gap year of travel that was delayed by COVID-19.
