Huis Walters

The boys' hostel, Huis Walters, has a most fascinating history since 1928. It stands proud of the number of children - including poor children from its early days - for whom it provided access to a quality education on the West Coast.

Today, Huis Walters houses Grade 1-12 HSH boys from all over the West Coast and even further afield. While it is a safe, structured and disciplined residence for learners, there is still ample room for play and individual expression in a genial environment.

This solid building with a clear view over the Hopefield fynbos and towards the windfarm offers a farm-feel. It also has beautiful gardens and spacious, light facilities. The hostel is conveniently situated two blocks away from the school and the pool and within easy walking distance of the sports grounds.

The kitchens are squeaky-clean, expertly staffed and well-equipped to prepare the well-balanced, hearty meals a growing boy needs. The hostel also provides continuity of the school ethos as several teachers are living in.

Parents will not find a more affordable and convenient base for their young gentlemen.

Provide your son with a solid, safe, social home away from home.
