A wonderful book to celebrate the centenary of WPPS in 2014 has been compiled.

It has a historical section but also includes a great deal of information about the people who have contributed to this remarkable little school and to society in general.

For the past three years we have been contacting as many old boys as we can to ask for their reminiscences and we are very grateful to the many who have responded.

To purchase a copy of the book, the cost of the book is R380, please  buy one at the Newlands Road office or contact our marketing department via email,
