Hubert -“Tubby”- Teubes



New affiliation to the Institute

15/11/2011: South Africa

On 20 September 2011, at a simple ceremony held in the school chapel at St Joseph’s Marist College (Cape Town), Hubert -“Tubby”- Teubes, a past pupil of the College was officially affiliated to the Institute of the Marist Brothers. The certificate of affiliation was presented by Br Joseph Walton, Provincial Superior, on behalf of the Superior General and his Council who bestowed the award.

After joining the College in the mid-fifties, Tubby soon established himself as a leader, a hard-working pupil, and a talented sportsman. After matriculating in 1958, his association with the school continued and he coached the first rugby team for many years, while continuing to play the game himself at club level. Immediately after leaving school, he was employed by Old Mutual and still works for the organisation today. He became an active member of the Marist Old Boys Association and was elected to the post of secretary. Some years later, he became chairman of the Marist War Memorial Club.

Since the late 1990’s he has been on the St Joseph’s College Board and has done sterling hands-on work encouraging the Estate Manager and the marketing of the school. Tubby was a key figure in setting up the Special Needs Unit (SNU) at the College. The SNU caters for youngsters who are physically and/or mentally challenged, and integrates them into the daily life of the College as far as possible. The interaction of these young people with the majority of the students who are not so handicapped has proved to be mutually beneficial. Tubby also served generously during the preparations for the 90th birthday celebration of St Joseph’s (1918 – 1998).

Apart from his commitments to things Marist, he has been involved in a number of associations in the city and, together with his wife Mercia, is an active member of the Pinelands Catholic Church where he has served as chairman of the Parish Council. One of the parents at St Joseph’s had this to say about Tubby: “Thank you, Tubby. You are blessed with an enthusiasm and dedication of service that is quite staggering.”
