The Pillar awards are given at the end of each term to candidates in recognition of outstanding achievement in one of the four pillars of the school: academics, culture, service and sport. These prestigious trophies were especially commissioned by Wynberg for each pillar: named after Greek Gods associated with the discipline, each trophy has a silver figurine mounted on a piece of Chapman's Peak.
Nominations for these awards are invited from the entire school - staff and pupils alike. These nominations and formal motivations are then given to the heads of each of the four pillars. After assessing the nomination and motivation of all candidates, the heads of the four pillars bring their proposed candidates to a formal meeting with the other heads of the pillar and a final decision is reached.
We congratulate the following girls who were awarded the trophy for their achievements in Term 4, 2011:
