Drakensberg boys choir dream

Drakensberg boys choir dream

Personal message

My name is Tayo Williams, am 10 years old. I live in Durban with mother who is currently unemployed. My father passed away in 2014. I was auditioned by Drakensberg boys choir and I was accepted. Drakensberg boys choir came to my school and they loved my voice. I love music a lot. 

The Admission process at the Drakensberg Boys School is twofold. Firstly, a voice audition must be passed. Next, the latest academic school report must be assessed by the Head of Academics. An above-average academic record is required in order to keep up with the demands of the choir school. 

The Drakensberg boys school only has 105 boys from Grade 4-9. Over 1500 boys auditioned from all over South Africa, Tayo is one of only a few boys to be offered a place for 2020.

It is the responsibility of parents to make the necessary financial arrangements for a boy to be enrolled as a full-time border. The projected fees for 2020 amount to R180,000 per annum.

I believe the school will offer him a sponsorship in 2021 since Tayo is very serious about music and he is an intelligent young boy.

The funds raised will be used as follows: 

  • Tuition fees - R67 810
  • Boarding fees - R75 135
  • General Purpose Levy - R2 495
  • IT and Materials Levy - R 3,095
  • Uniforms - R 5000

I would appreciate any contribution that you could make. It is once in a lifetime opportunity for my son to be placed at the international award-winning Drakensberg Boys Choir School. We appreciate your support and generosity.


*Funds raised will be paid directly to the school*
