Siya Kolisi

Yesterday I went for a walk down memory lane.

I taught at Grey from 1984 to 1988 and again in 2004.

Now I’m retired due to “ill health”.

In 1984, I taught mathematics to Nico de Vries. He was in matric and we lived together in Meriway Hostel.

Now he’s a successful MAX gum guard manufacturer and fitter, even to the very best national athletes and Springbok players.

In 2004, Siya Kolisi joined Grey Primary.

Now he’s the first black Springbok rugby captain and he sports MAX gum guards – Nico’s product.
