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.

Between 2010 ans 2013, we contacted as many old boys as we could to ask for their reminiscences, and we are very grateful to the many who responded.

The cost of the book is R380, and it can be purchased at the Newlands Road office; otherwise contact our marketing department via email,
