The Witness Hilton Arts Festival
Chris Loxton Memorial Fountain
The Chris Loxton Memorial Fountain was designed by Owen Davies and is situated between the Crookes Block and the Chapel. This memorial fountain adds significantly to the beauty and richness of the campus, and we pray that it will be a place where Hilton boys, both present and future, will be able to sit quietly and reflect.

Dear Parents, Old Boys and Friends of Hilton
We had a successful weekend of sports fixtures, with the highlight being our first team Soccer win against Maritzburg College. This brings down the curtain on the Soccer, 7's Rugby and Athletics seasons. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the coaches for their contributions to the boys' development and enjoyment of Soccer, 7's Rugby and Athletics. This week we play Inter-house Soccer before getting our summer sports programme fully underway on Wednesday. The Inter-house Athletics will take place next Monday afternoon and parents are most welcome to attend this.
A number of Olympiads (Science, Life Science, Afrikaans, Maths Third Round and isiZulu) have been written in the past couple of weeks and we look forward to the results of these.
On Saturday morning we hosted the Inter-Provincial Maths Olympiad with two of our staff taking responsibility for training the Midlands teams.
We also held a Water Polo Training Camp with the National Coach in attendance. This was also attended by the Clifton College team. On Sunday we hosted a Winter Cricket Camp which forms part of the Inland Trials for U15, U17 and U19 and we also hosted a Basketball Coaches' Conference attended by around 70 people. It is fantastic that we are able to make such a broad and significant contribution to the greater community, sharing our wonderful resources and expertise. I am very grateful to our staff for facilitating these opportunities.
On Thursday evening at 17:00 we will be opening the Chris Loxton Memorial Fountain. This brief ceremony will be attended by all of our boys. Parents who would like to attend are most welcome to do so.
Preparation is well under way for the Drama Festival which starts on Thursday with a day for Prep Schools followed by Jongozi Day for High Schools on Friday. All of our boys will attend productions on Friday as an important part of their greater education. The weekend is always a highlight on our calendar and we look forward to seeing you here enjoying it with us.
Best wishes.Paul de Wet
