Every school has its positives and negatives, but Affies' positives are far more than its negatives. The teachers are dedicated and always put academics above cultural and sport activities. You leave the school as a young man ready to face the world with confidence, knowledge and a sense of direction as to where you're going.
Not the greatest environment to raise a young man. Dont get me wrong, the sport and academics are not top tier. The culture on the other hand is very toxic. Almost every boy in the school is openly racist, sexist, homophobic ect. And the school itself does nothing to stop this terrible behaviour. If you are not a white afrikaans christian you will have a very very hard time. I have heard from countless sources and I have experienced first hand how badly the affies boys treat anybody who is from another race, religion or culture. Lots of boys who aren’t racist, sexist homophobic ect. have turned into those because of how the school pressures you into believing their values. As i said if you send your son to this school you will most likely get a boy who does well in academics and sport, but he will aslo become very toxic.
Absolutely horrible! If you want your child to be a boer.. go for it however, if you want him to do something else, stay away! Most people there are either racist, sexist, homophobic or xenophobic if not all of them. Most of the teachers don't care about the students and religious violence between the boys are swept under the carpet!
Absolutely amazing, this school turns a boy into a man. There is not better place for your son, good characteristics cant be taught in a week or a month but years, that iz something oy Affies can give you.
From the moment you enter the red brick building a sense of pride rushes through your veins. Walking through the front door you are greeted by big brown cupboards packed to the brim with trophies and memorabilia .Decades worth of pictures on the wall tell a story of a school intrinsically steeped in tradition and culture. This is not mere bragging rights but a narrative of a close knit family that proudly carries the school’s name on their chest. Affies brings academics, sport and culture into a perfect balance and it’s a melting pot of gifts and talents. From top class teachers, state of the art facilities, renowned sports academy to an award winning choir, Affies builds a leader into every young student. At Affies every spark is fanned into a flame for their motto to stand true - “Laat Daar Lig Wees”.
