In order to formalise the fundraising efforts and to ensure the sustainability of the support provided to College by the Old Boys and the parents, the 100Club initiative has been developed. The basic idea of the 100Club is for Old Boys to donate R100 (can be higher if you can afford to pay more) per month, and these funds will be used to provide funding and support to College, the boys and staff, via the Inkazimulo – The Shining Light Trust.
There is only one way Potchefstroom High School for Boys (College) will be able to go from strength to strength and that is with the help of the Old Boys themselves. As a model C public school, College does not receive a significant amount of financial support from Government and certainly not enough to continue to maintain and expand the functions and facilities of the School. Over the years the school has become more reliant on school fees paid by parents and the generosity of parents and Old Boys. Any Old Boy that can afford to give back to the school that gave them so much should read on.
The 100 Club Debit Order System is an easy and regular way of supporting College
We receive many enquiries as to what the annual subscription fee is to become a member of the Society. We in fact do not require an annual subscription as the amount is not significant on a monthly basis and generally is overlooked.

How The Money is used
All of the money collected by the 100Club and the Inkazimulo Trust is used for the benefit of College, the boys and the staff. Areas of support specifically covered by the Inkazimulo Trust include:
Welfare and financial assistance of pupils, their parents and the staff;
Healthcare support for pupils and the staff;
Educational and development support via the provision and/or support of further and better educational, academic and recreational facilities;
Financial support to pupils through the provision of facilities
and/or financial support to advance their education;
Sport through the support and development of individuals who show promise and ability; and Funding for the provision of bursaries, maintenance of the
School, financial assistance to pupils on a needs basis.
In order to maximise the use of the funds of the 100Club, administration of the 100Club and the Inkazimulo Trust are undertaken by volunteers.
How To Contribute
Contributions to the 100Club are welcome whenever and however but we do really like monthly contributions as it allows us to forecast our level of funding and we can commit to more meaningful and substantial support for College.
However, we appreciate that this level of commitment may not be possible for all so once-off and annual contributions (of any amount) are also welcome and appreciated.
- The 100 Club Debit Order System is an easy and regular monthly way of supporting College. Whilst the debit order form is a legal one which protects you and Inkazimulo – The Shining Light Trust. Please complete including the amount you wish to contribute and return to firstname.lastname@example.org. Using this method you only have to complete the debit Order Form once. The Old Boys office will then manage the monthly submission as per your instructions indicated on the Debit Order Form.
- However today the EFT System for those who have internet banking facilities is the quickest and cheapest way of contributing to the 100 Club. By this method you are in control of your donations which can be made with a monthly scheduled payment which you don’t have to activate each month.
- For our Old Boys abroad, most seem to prefer a once a year type donation as this is the most cost effective way to make donations. The amount and frequently would be for you to determine.
It is with great pride
That we support College, to maintain its status as a Prestigious Public School as it has been for 112 years now. Our data base is growing and spontaneous donations from both South Africa and around the world are becoming quite regular.
Overall, all the donations received to build the beautiful Staff garden with new furniture. Converting the Mac Farlane to the Alex Paiva Health and Fitness Centre and the upgrading of the Sports Centre to the Natie Kirsh Sports Complex, Over FOUR MILLION RAND has been raised by Proud Old Boys who respect the school that helped shape their lives when they were at College
