So much is happening in our country at the moment, with political parties sparing over voters for the coming local elections, the Rand trying to recover ground lost since last December as well as the persistent drought in large parts to name a few.
Against this backdrop it is imperative that we provide our learners with a safe and stable environment to work and learn in.  Boys respond well to routine and we try to minimize disruptions to set routines as much as possible.  However, in a year that you have your 150th celebrations it is inevitable that you will have changes to that set routine.
We have had a number of events starting with the Cricket Festival in January to the Basketball and Hockey Festival in the March Holidays.  It has been a very busy time but that is what it is all about.  We would not want it any other way.
In May we have a number of Cultural and Music events planned.  Please consult our Web page, Facebook page and Communicator for more information and join us for these events.
We also have our Founders Day Celebrations in the first week of June.  A large number of Old Boys have indicated that they would be returning to their Alma Mater and that is tremendous to hear.  We are playing against College this year.  They are our oldest rivals and we are delighted to host them for Founders Day.
Last weekend, the 1st XV recorded a 25-24 victory over Westville.  For our older Old Boys a win over Westville would not have been very difficult in their days, but in the last 15 years Westville has become a powerhouse in KZN Rugby which makes the win over them last Saturday extra special.  This team is already showing that they could become a great team.  They just need to stay humble, focussed and eager to learn.
We started with our Standardised Tests this week and this is the ideal opportunity to practise for the Examinations in June.  Hard work now will pay off at the end of the term and year.
