Dear Grade 11 Parents and Boys

Last year, the school employed a company to make a set of promotional videos representing a number of aspects of Bishops. As they were filming in the Cederberg, we suggested to them that they do some extra filming and create a video that celebrates the 10th Bishops Epic.

The launch of this video is going to be on Wednesday 22 March at 6.30 pm in the Memorial Theatre.


In addition to this, Michael Beckurts has produced a set of cards from the work he did whilst on Epic last year. Click here to view Michael's cards. He has very kindly agreed to donate all proceeds from the sale of these cards to Elizabethfontein Primary. Our aim is to raise R200 000 from the sale of these cards, the video and some prints.


This invite is not just extended to the Grade 11s and their parents but also to a number of organisations and individuals who have journeyed with Michael over the years. We’ll be hearing from Michael, Georgina Berens (the art teacher who was with Michael on Epic) and Annatjie Dames the Principal of Elizabethfontein Primary.


Please RSVP to Eleanor Hendricks by email ehendricks@bishops.org.za by Friday 17 March. You are also invited to tea and biscuits in the Old Gym after the formalities are over.


As there have only been 100 DVDs made and as this is for charity, you’re only able to get the DVD if you buy the cards – all 10 cards and the DVD for R250. Individual cards will be for sale at R25 per card as well as the packs of five for R100 per pack.

 

There will also be an opportunity for you to place orders of high quality images of some of the works – details available on the night.


Kind regards


Graham Robertson
