St John's College

Trinity Term was a busy one overflowing with events, activities and achievements centred around our 125th birthday celebrations.

We enjoyed the intense friendly rivalry in the weekly derbies; the return of the College Dash, 125 celebrations and Gaudy Day, with the highlight being the permanent installation of The 125 Heritage Exhibition in the Rene England Auditorium that celebrates our 125-year-old history, opened by The Visitor, the Right Revd Dr Steve Moreo, Bishop of Johannesburg, with a special address by former Chairman of the Heritage Committee, Dr Daniel Pretorius. On the sports front, the international clash of our U17A and B sides against Eton College from the United Kingdom was another highlight of Gaudy Day.

On our 125th birthday celebrated on 1 August, students and staff were treated to a special performance by America’s Got Talent finalists, the Mzansi Youth Choir, led by our Head of African Music (who is also their choirmaster), Sidumo Nyamezele and Mzansi Youth Choir set Burger Field on fire with their amazing performance and lineup of songs.
