History was made last weekend, as Prep Cricketer Ross Boast, broke the St Charles College Prep batting record. He scored an impressive 167 runs not out against Clifton Nottingham Road. Not only does he hold the new record, he now sits at number 3 on the all-time batting records list for the entire College. Due to this exceptional achievement, from a boy who is in the U11A team, Ross was presented with his batting accolade at the Senior School Sports Assembly.

The St Charles College Grade 7s are currently reading “The Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen. In the novel, there is a 13 year old boy named Brian, who has to make his own fire out in the wilderness. The boys had the opportunity to learn how to make a fire, without using matches, and experience what it would have been like for Brian.
