Short Story

I am Chris ‘Bone’ Oldnall, a teacher, father and sportsman. I am embarking on a journey that symbolises hope, resilience and the power of education.

I will be swimming 8km from Robben Island to Big Bay in Cape Town, and raising funds for Calling Education.  Calling Education is a non profit in the Cape who is dedicated to providing quality education opportunities especially for those in low-income communities.

With your help we can ensure that every child has access to quality education regardless of their circumstances.

Join me as we activate generosity and make a difference in the lives of those at Calling Education.

Calling Education has the audacious vision of developing the most relevant model of providing top-quality education to learners from low-income communities for South Africa.

This vision led to Calling Academy, an all-boys high school, being established in 2018 outside Stellenbosch. The early success of the school spawned a co-ed Calling Academy, established in Kroonstad in January 2022.

Apart from running these schools, the Calling Education mission includes providing thought leadership in the field of low-fee education and raising the bar in this context of South African education.
