Winter Tour Success
31 Preppies travelled down to Gauteng earlier this month to compete against other schools hockey and rugby teams.
Our Marimba Band treated pupils and staff to their lively music and had their audiences clapping and singing along.
The boys thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Zoo, a war museum and several pizza restuarants.

The Pirates of Penzance!
Prep plays are always outstanding and this year's Grade 7 production is no exception. Swashbuckling pirates,
beautiful maidens, swarthy policemen and Major Generals battle it out on a lonely deserted island.
Photographs of the play and actors will be available to order after Half Term or may be obtained from Kodak, High Street.
Youth of Today have a Choice
The message from the youth of Grahamstown in celebration of Youth Day was loud and clear.
Born out of former years of struggle when the youth had no choice but to learn in a language they did not entirely understand,
the freedom of today’s scholars to expand their horizons through study has grown in leaps and bounds.
DSG Head Girl, Christina Georgoulakis and St Andrew’s College Headboy, Andrew Rushmere, encouraged fellow pupils
to take hold of every opportunity presented to them, because they now have the right to do so
Old Andrean and in coming Proteas Assistant Cricket Coach, Adrian Birrel urged those present to “dream the impossible dream”.
Everyone has been given a vehicle in the form of their minds, he said. A good education provides the right service plan for the vehicle but the pupil has to drive it carefully and learn how to avoid the many pitfalls ahead.
St Andrew’s College, Prep and the Diocesan School for Girls staged several impressive performances
from Marimba bands to gum boot dances, chamber choirs and rock bands in the warm sunshine under clear, blue skies.
Prep's Victorious K-Day
St Andrew's Prep enjoyed a chilly but very exciting K-Day weekend with Netball, Hockey and Rugby matches on the go against Kingswood. The festive spirit on the side of the sports field among parents was good to see and the scores were particularly encouraging.
Prep Pupils Support Hospice Patients
This week, St Andrew’s Prep shares in the life-preserving work of the Island Hospice – without which,
many families in our own community would not survive.
By wearing the traditional sunflower colour of yellow and donating R5, each of the 254 pupils at Prep will be supporting the weak,
sickly and desperately ill patients in and around Grahamstown.
Internationally based, Island Hospice was the first organisation in Africa to provide palliative care to terminally ill patients. IAHPC focuses on advancing these care programs, education, research and policies to improve the care provided to patients around the world.
St Andrew’s Prep boys and Staff count themselves privileged to contribute to such a vital service
Prep’s Around the World Evening was a resounding success, drawing over 500 people to taste culinary delicacies from ten different countries
across the globe. Local Grahamstonians blossomed in a riot of colours and fancy dress according to their choice of country.
The well-loved Prep Marimba band welcomed the dinner guests and a solo St Andrew’s College guitarist tuned up later,
followed by Des Alcock, well known solo band singer as the diners enjoyed the delicious food, a balmy evening,
flowers, candles and strung fairy lights.
