Drakensberg Boys Choir School opens new 200 seater dining hall

The new dining hall at the Drakensberg Boys Choir School.

Exactly 51 years ago, on January 23, 1967, the Drakensberg Boys Choir School opened its doors to 20 boys. It was here, beneath the towering uKhahlamba Drakensberg mountains that a dream was born.

The beauty of the surrounding environment beckoned – calling for boyish fun, laughter and excitement, and the sound of majestic voices.

It was a dream, a vision and made a reality by the Tungay family; Ronnie and Gwyn (affectionately known as Ma and Pa Tungay) and their sons, John and Russell.

Last week on January 23, the Drakensberg Boys Choir School opened its doors of the new dining hall, which will accommodate up to 200 guests. The building includes new amenities that will enhance the life of the boys.

Backed by the board, Mr Andrew Stead, the immediate past Executive Head, was the driving force behind this project, supported by Mr Anton Redelinghuis who took over the reins after Mr Stead’s decision to leave education and return to business.

The Drakensberg Boys Choir has a ‘soul‘. The music it creates in this breath-taking world heritage site is what sets it apart from any institution, anywhere in the world.
