St Charles

Words Week at SCC

Words Week is a highly anticipated event on the St Charles College Prep School calendar. The boys spend three days with various guests who prepare innovating and thought-provoking sessions relating to words, writing and literature. One of the boys’ favourite guests was local rapper and poet, Brian Khoza. They really enjoyed learning about the processes that are involved in writing rap music and hearing some of Brian’s work.

Grade 1 and Grade 5 Story Buddies

As an unusual project, each boy from one of the Grade 5 classes was paired up with a boy from one of the Grade 1 classes at St Charles College. The Grade 5s then had to interview their Grade 1 ‘brother’ to find out more about them and get to know them better. The Grade 5s had to use this information to write an exciting story. The Grade 1 boys were enthralled to hear the adventures of their classmates.

Scrummies Dress Up Day

The St Charles College Pre-Primary boys all came to school dressed up as their favourite character. Then they headed across to the Junior Primary to show off their outstanding outfits to the JP boys. There was such a range of costumes, which made for a very cheerful day at school.
