Old Georgian Union

The St George’s Grammar School Alumni, known as the Old Georgian Union, was founded in 1906. The Union aims to promote good fellowship among its members, promote the welfare and interests of the school and to organize sporting and social functions.

If you are a former pupil of the school and would like to make sure that you are a member of the Old Georgian Union, please contact Stephen on (021) 689-9354 or or visit their website for more information.

Original School Badge

The original school badge consists of a cross Or, charged with an anchor in fess point sable and surmounted by an escutcheon bearing the Arms of Burdett-Coutts; Quarterly azure and sable, 1st and 4th a lion rampant argent; 2nd and 3rd three open crowns palewise Or.

The Arms of the See of Durham supply the gold cross and the lions to this Coat – Robert Gray (the first Bishop of Cape Town) having been a prebendary of Durham before his consecration.

The 3 crowns are taken from the See of Bristol (Robert Gray’s father having been Bishop of Bristol, and Robert – his father – chaplain).

Baroness Burdett-Coutts gave a sum of money in 1846 for the founding of Cape Town Diocese, so her Arms are borne in memory of her generosity.

The anchor speaks of the Cape of Good Hope.
The mitre speaks of the Church and relates to its founder, Bishop Robert Gray.
The Motto of the School is Virtute et Valore.
The Patron Saint is St George.St G
