Milan Comley earned ‘Best Table Topics’ and Karma Nel the ‘Bouquet’ trophy for being the best um/ah counter on the evening.

We are proud of them all, especially the youngest, Keziah Philip, who captained the KZN Inland U15 A Soccer Team.

Grace College School Leadership Team Camp

A group of Grade 11 pupils from Grace College, who have been chosen for leadership roles in 2018, attended a weekend adventure camp at Cumberland Nature Reserve. Our Deputy Headmaster, Henko Jansen, reported that throughout the challenges maximum attention was paid to health and safety standards, and for this we can thank Dirk Calitz of Outdoor Educators.
