Simon Weaver, head of Cordwalles Preparatory School in Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, has bid goodbye to the Cordwalles community after 12 years. Weaver is himself an alumnus of the school, studying there from 1970 to 1975. In 1983, he returned to serve as a boarder master. The parents, staff and boys salute Weaver for the remarkable transformation that has taken place at Cordwalles in recent years. Enrolment has risen from 250 boys in 2004 to 360 at the current time, and he has spearheaded many exciting new building projects at the school.
In Weaver’s words: “I have had 12 very happy years at this wonderful school and in this outstanding community. I believe that there is a season for everything and that my Cordwalles season needs to end at this time.”
Weaver has accepted the headship at Western Province Preparatory School in Cape Town, commencing in 2016. Lance Veenstra, deputy head of Cordwalles, has been appointed as the seventh head of the school, which has delivered quality education to boys for 104 years.
