ON Tuesday 26 July, St Charles College officially turned 141 years old. The occasion was celebrated by the entire college, as everyone gathered on Harwin field to commemorate the college’s birthday. A special cake was cut by the chairman of the board, Mr Shaun Quin, principal, Mr Allen van Blerk, deputy principal, Mr Graham Stewart-Burger and head boy, Calum Nish. A special thank you to St Charles College parent, Zeenath Hoosen, for generously donating the magnificent cake. St Charles College Old Boy and staff member, Mr Brad Hutton gave an inspiring speech, aimed specifically at the boys. The Founder’s Day Dash was one of the highlights, as boys from the senior primary, middle school and upper school sprinted down St Charles College’s drive. And what is a birthday without some tasty treats for the boys to enjoy. The college remembers its heritage and those who contributed to making it the place it is today. It also looks forward to the prospects the future holds for continued growth and success.
