The Mount Exchange Programme

The Mount is very pleased to be working in partnership with two exceptional sporting schools in South Africa, Kearsney College in Durban and St Stithian’s in Johannesburg. The programme that has been developed between our schools is an exchange whereby a small number of students will have the opportunity to experience schooling, culture and top quality sports in another country for a short period of time.

Cornelius (Neels) Volschenk and Zukile Habile were the first two South African exchange boys on the programme and we hope it will grow stronger and stronger over the years to come. The boys were at The Mount for 8 weeks where they both got fully involved in every possible way. Neels played 1st XV rugby and Zukile was involved in the choir. These boys were an absolute pleasure to have in the boarding house and were great ambassadors for their school Kearsney College. The Mount look forward to sending two boys to Kearsney early next year to experience the South African culture.
