St Charles College Head Boy and Deputies visit Scrummies

St Charles College is a through school, meaning there is an immense age range of boys on the campus. At the start of the term, some of the bigger SCC boys, namely the Head Boy and his deputies, made a visit to the Pre-Primary boys to spend time with the little Scrummies. All the boys, both big and small, had great fun playing on the playground!

The start of 2016 was a memorable moment in the history of Prep Boarding at St Charles College, as the Prep Boarders this year are the first to move in to the newly built Prep boarding establishment. Head of Prep Boarding, Mr Martin, and the boarder masters welcomed new boarders, as well as returning boarders, to their new home on the campus. This is a very exciting new era for Prep Boarding at St Charles College, as the boys will now be living in the heart of the campus.

It was impressive to see such a large contingent of new boys joining the Prep School in 2016 at St Charles College when they attended their orientation morning. The boys and their parents were able to spend the morning familiarising themselves with the campus and spending some time getting acquainted with their teachers before the official first day of term.
