I spent probably the best four years of my school life at Saint George's Home For Boys under George Adams, firstly in Simpson house and later, in Smuts and Taylor houses. (January 1966 to December 1969). The values and discipline learned in Saint George's has carried me through a number of difficult life situations, but has always brought me out a much stronger and more confident person on the other side. My life would not have been he same without Saint George's. To all the guys who spent any time at all there, may our Lord and Saviour be gracious to you, and keep you in His care. John. ...

Words alone cannot express the deep sadness we all feel at this very sad news of the passing of Canon Eric Richardson,former rural dean of the East Rand , former Chaplain to St Peter's school, and Headmaster of St George's Home for boys. To Michael, Debbie and Christopher, Thank you so much for letting your father be "our Father" too. Eric was a unique individual; one of a kind. It is indeed the end of an era, and the end of a life of service to others to the Glory of God. Safe in the arms of the Lord he loved and served all his life long."Well done, Good and faithful servant." Rest eternal grant unto him, O Lord; and let Light Perpetual shine upon Him. Rest in Peace Dear Fr Eric and Rise in Glory. Your "adopted son", Fr Michael Anthony Rossouw.(St George's Anglican Congregation, Pattaya, Thailand.) ... See MoreSee Less

I am online again. I have recently acquired & read John Barrett's book. I was mentioned a few times & my ego is comprehensively placated. I participated in some of John's ad hoc soccer games & knew him to have good ball control & dribbling skills. It was difficult to take the ball away from him. I also remember that during Rhodes University recesses Nutsy Moore also played with us. He was into body building those days & had an impressive physique. However, it was easy to intercept the ball from him & have always wondered if that type of training was at all functional. ... See MoreSee Less

John also mentions Eugene Tait in his book, who was in Malvern High School with us & who had a sardonic sense of humour. Once Eugene's house was burgled & the culprit was the notorious Peter Griffin. Eugene laid a charge against him & Peter turned up in court resplendent, wearing one of Eugene's best suits!! ... See MoreSee Less
