About Ballies


Started by the Johannesburg Dads, such as Roger Burman / Anthony Johnston / Wally Webber / Russell Hopkins to name a few back in 2005 – this is our 14th year!

Objective was to emulate the “bus” trip our sons do every term from JHB to Hilton but with a twist to raise some funds for the school while having fun.


The Hilton College Ballies (“Ballies”) is a voluntary association of current and past parents, including Old Hiltonians, which has been established to:-

  • Promote and engender the collegiality of parents, old boys and other people interested in Hilton College;
  • Raise funds for and on behalf of Hilton College for specific projects; and
  • Generally further the interests and prosperity of Hilton College and its pupils
