» ST JOHN’S COLLEGE EASTER RUGBY FESTIVAL
05, 07, 09 April 2012

St John's College, in proud association with Standard Bank, is delighted to be hosting the 17th annual Easter Rugby Festival. Eleven visiting high school teams and nine Preparatory school teams will join the "Blues" and U13 Prep teams at the Festival.

We’ve taken congnisance of suggestions from members of our community and are delighted to announce that we’re changing the Saturday evening format. Entrance gates will close at 5 pm, only admitting visitors who wear an accredited wrist band purchased at the entrance gates. We are reverting to appropriate evening family entertainment, encouraging a convivial family atmosphere. Our Saturday night family-based entertainment will commence at 18h45 on Endean Field.

Funds raised from each year’s Festival have traditionally been utilised for various projects and activities throughout the school. These contributions have benefited the entire school from Pre-Prep through to College.

Please note that in our endeavours for a cashless environment, Payment Cards will be introduced at this year’s Rugby Festival. These cards operate on the same basis as debit, cheque and credit cards. Funds are pre-loaded and all purchases at the Festival will only be enabled through these Payment Cards. Uploading and reloading facilities will be available in the Finance tent to transfer funds from regular bank accounts into the Payment Cards or alternatively to transfer cash into the Payment Cards.


» The objectives of the St John's College festival are:
  • To promote the growth and development of school rugby, in the widest context, through St John's College
  • To foster good fellowship amongst participants who come from a variety of backgrounds
  • To provide an opportunity for boys from St John's College and from other schools to play against and socialize with sides they might not otherwise meet
  • To foster an exciting rugby spectacle and social occasion that will increase the popularity of rugby amongst schoolboys and supporters of schoolboy rugby
