St Stithians College, Randburg, Central Gauteng.

A South African school making a world of difference. A village of schools comprising a Boy’s College, Boys Preparatory School, Girls College, Girls Preparatory School, Post Matric and Pre-primary School. A liberal Christian education combined with academic excellence to produce an education that is richly entrenched in its South African roots but also sets global standards. The 90-Ha estate offers superb facilities including woodland, an environmental sanctuary, magnificent sports fields, an aquatic complex, housing for staff and a beautiful chapel.

A Methodist Church School where boys and girls of all faiths are welcomed and respected. The Chapel is the core of the school, with resident chaplains. Good manners, sharing and tolerance, non-retaliation on the sports fields to unsporting provocation – the value strategy in education takes Saints beyond academic and sporting excellence. A co-ordinate model offers pupils the best of both worlds.  In a nutshell, co-ordination means single sex schooling when maturation of the girls and boys require it, and mixing when this would be of benefit.

The St Stithians Rugby Festival is held annually for three days over the Easter weekend in April. Ten schools are invited from the various provinces as well as from neighbouring countries (Namibia, Zimbabwe) as well as overseas (Australia, UK). There are no overall winners or losers, the boys are encouraged to play open attractive rugby and unsportsmanlike behaviour is frowned upon. Thousands of old boys from the various schools attend and have an opportunity to meet in the beer garden afterwards. A wonderful opportunity to renew old acquaintances. A must for lovers of this great game.

The St Stithians Arts Festival is held annually in early July. It includes symphony concerts, storytelling, music recitals, an analysis of film, drama, poetry workshops and various exhibitions, including photography, art, drawings and paintings. AWSaints
