Wynberg Boys’ Junior School promotes itself across South Africa and the world with various incoming and outgoing tours. Our annual exchange program with Grey PE keeps getting stronger, with 4 Grey cricket teams visiting us every year in January. The midyear May exchange for rugby and hockey continues to grow from strength to strength. Our U13A rugby team, who have successfully beaten the top boys’ school for the last 4 years, travel to both Johannesburg and Durban throughout the course of the year to attend the king Edwards Easter Festival and the Durban Prep Rugby Festival. Our 1st XI cricket team attends the annual Cape Schools Cricket Week every year, a festival we are excited to host in 2016. The boys also attend the St Peters 20/20 Festival in early October. The U13A hockey team tour to Knysna and George every year in June. The water polo team represents WBJS in the Grey PE Water Polo Festival in Term 1. Apart from the outgoing tours, we also welcome teams from England, Kenya, Dubai and New Zealand for various sporting events. Teams from Johannesburg and Durban also visit us for cricket and rugby fixtures.

Fitness and conditioning have become a huge part of schoolboy sport, and we can proudly say we do our part for our sportsmen. Phys Ed. lessons have become more fitness orientated, with learners doing various assessments throughout the year. Learners are also taught theory lessons about life saving and nutrition.
