St Charles College was proud to receive a package from Cricket South Africa this week. The Saints cricket programme was assessed and received distinctions for coaching and facilities as well as the number of teams we enter into the top tier league in South Africa. With exciting new developments about to start on The Oval and a winter programme running in our Indoor Centre, we look forward to the 2017/2018 summer.

A number of our boys from the senior school braved the needle and came forward to donated blood at the end of last term.

 

 

Dads and Lads Army Day at Scrummies

On Thursday, 27 April, our boys from Scrummies were joined by their dads for a morning of fun – army style! Following a talk by the drill sergeant, the dads and lads went through a series of obstacles together; including climbing, crawling and slip ‘n sliding! After working up an appetite, the morning ended off with bacon egg rolls prepared by some of the moms.
