Workers’ Day was a very special day for the St Charles College Scrummies boys and their moms. Leading up to Mother’s Day, the timing was perfect to have the Pre-Primary moms spend the morning with their boys at school. Things started off with a picnic on the grass, then there were several activities set up for all to enjoy.

The first Mini Soccer Festival at St Charles College for this year took place recently. The boys from all the schools that participated showed off their skills that they have been developing in practises. It was also wonderful to see so many parents coming out to support their sons.

The St Charles College Grade 1s and 2s put on an impressive performance as they played some mini rugby against each other as a curtain raiser for the Senior 1st XV rugby team recently. St Charles College tries to embody their Five Schools One College concept in as many aspects of campus life as possible, and this was a great example of the bigger and littler boys coming together.
