Middle School Academic Awards Ceremony

Last week our Middle School celebrated its academic achievements from the 2020 final examinations. It was a fitting ceremony that boasted some of the College’s best ever results in our illustrious heritage. With the ceremony being hosted online, it was left up to the award winners, keynote speakers and musical interludes to light up the Chapel and bring some much-needed ambiance to the occasion. We were not let down. Those in attendance were attentive and congratulated one another with respect and enthusiasm. The readers spoke with verve and courage, and their words were heartfelt. We look forward to having a full Chapel next year to celebrate the academic success of the Middle School and hope to see you there. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the event for making it possible. It was a wonderful team effort that came together beautifully. – Mr Murray Cole-Edwardes (Head of Middle School)

International Steelpan and Marimba Competition

Congratulations to our Senior Marimba band, who recently received certificates for participating in the International Steelpan and Marimba Competition.

Saints Inter House Sport

We're so glad the regulations have allowed us back on the sports field for some non-contact Inter House sport! It has been excellent to see the Inter House competitions taking place on the courts, in the pool and on the cricket fields. Well done to all the boys who have got involved in the action and locked horns with their peers. There is a change at the top of the table with Delalle leading the basketball and coming out on top, overall, in cricket. Congratulations to our first winning finalists, Delalle for claiming Junior cricket honours and Conway for blowing away their opposition in the Senior final on The Oval with some explosive batting.

We're Making a Mini-Series

Many travel along Harwin Road each day or each week fussing about the traffic, worrying about the time, fretting about the boys… not always seeing the route that leads to friendships, learning and new experiences. Now it is time to take another look at Harwin Road. This time you can watch Harwin Road – St Charles College’s latest production starring our own boys. Harwin Road, the mini-series, is on its way: auditions are taking place, the script is being edited and soon it will be lights, camera, action!

To follow our progress, keep an eye out on our social media platforms, as we encourage boys to play their part in this exciting new adventure. - Ms Roselyn Dredge and Ms Heather Skorpen

IGCSE Results November 2020

“to the faithful one, a certain reward“… These words have never rung truer for our College and for our boys. Amid what will undoubtedly be their most challenging year, our Grade 10 IGCSE students were faithful to their studies, to their values and to their families, and they were rewarded with outstanding results. We are exceptionally proud of our Grade 10 pupils and we look forward to seeing them develop even further in the Upper School and wish them the very best for their AS and A Level studies.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Principal, Mr Allen Van Blerk, our Deputy Principal, Mr Graham Stewart-Burger, and the staff of St Charles College for all their endeavors, resilience, adaptability and courage in 2020. Without them, these results would not have been possible. I feel very honoured to work at such a proud academic institution. Excellence is pursued every day with the aim of serving our pupils so that they can perform to the best of their abilities and ultimately achieve these incredible results that will serve them well in the future. – Mr Murray Cole-Edwardes (Head of Middle School)
