Growing The Hilton College Endowment Foundation

To stay affordable and accessible, the world’s great schools are run as not-for-profit organisations. For them to be able to maintain and upgrade their facilities, support bursaries and scholarships and run worthy social projects, they need the financial support of their alumni and wider communities. Hilton College is no different.

Stay in touch

To update your contact details or make contact with any other Old Hiltonians, get in touch with Mrs Amanda Pistorious who manages our alumni database, at

We’re investigating a new digital networking platform to enable connectivity and collaboration between Old Hiltonians.

The Hiltonian Travel Service

The Hiltonian Travel Service was conceived of by Old Hiltonian Craig Goodenough (1988, Churchill), the owner of XL Howick Travel and Bundu Bashers. Created as a mechanism to give back to the school, the Hiltonian Travel Service pays a percentage of its profits to the Hiltonian Society Bursary Fund.

Established in 2012, the initiative has been a resounding success, adding considerably to the bursary fund.

Over the past decade, members of staff, parents of Hilton boys, friends of Hilton and Old Hiltonians, in SA and abroad, have supported The Hiltonian Travel Service by entrusting to it their travel arrangements.

Whether you need to travel for business or leisure, you are guaranteed competitive prices and excellent service, and the satisfaction of knowing that you have contributed to our school’s bursary fund.

Depending on your travel requirements, your booking may be handled by XL Howick Travel or Bundu Bashers, but the benefit goes to the school, through the Hiltonian Travel Service.
