Junior Choir: directed by Jill Scheepers 

Our Junior Choir consists of over 70 boys from Grades 2 and 3. They are invited to join the choir and many already have experience singing in the foundation program. 

The Junior Choir rehearses once a week on Fridays. The boys perform for the school during assembly, at the Prize-Giving ceremony and at various concerts throughout the year.

The intermediate choir is a new addition to our choir programme which caters specifically for our grade 4 and 5 boys. This allows the boys to transition from junior to the senior choir and performing challenging repertoire in two voices.

Senior Choir: directed by Jill Scheepers 

Our Senior Choir consists of 60 boys from Grades 6 and 7. Many of them have moved up from the Intermediate Choir (Grade 4-5) and already have developed a love of singing. We are fortunate in having a wide spectrum of voice-types so our choir enjoys the challenge of singing in three parts – soprano, alto and tenor.

The choir features in a number of concerts at Wynberg Boys’ Junior various venues across the city.

We also have the benefit of being part of the Wynberg Campus of Schools where the choir is invited to join the Choral Festival each year, hosted by our sister school, Wynberg Girls; Junior School. This large event takes place in the City Hall.

The choir also takes part in the Wynberg Campus of Schools Carol Service. This is a beautiful ending to each year with the choirs from both junior schools singing their chosen carol. The ceremony ends with the magnificent combined sound of about 250 voices from both Wynberg school choirs singing in glorious harmony.
