Founders' Day

Thank you for joining us for our Online Founders’ Day 2020 Celebration.  Today we acknowledge this highlight date on the St Stithians calendar with an online celebration made up of pre-recorded videos that have been filmed on Campus (safely adhering to all Covid-19 protocols) and online musical performances by our combined choirs with a special focus on celebrating our Matric Class of 2020.

This online celebration offers One and All the opportunity to enjoy all of the special items that form part of our Founders' Day programme, and this year will also give our broader Saints Family the opportunity to enjoy the building openings and special celebrations that traditionally take place prior to our main Founders' Day event.

Every year since 1953 we have celebrated Founders’ Day at St Stithians College and 2020 should be no different.  This Online Founders’ Day Celebration marks the 67th and we thank you for being a part of this memorable online gathering of our community, together, apart.  Be Stronger One & All.

For optimal viewing of our Online Founders’ Day Celebration, we suggest that those who are able, view the video by streaming the YouTube video through your smart tv or laptop while viewing the programme on your mobile device.  On this page, we have purposefully placed the video below the programme so that you can fully enjoy and participtate in the service with the programme to guide you.  We invite you to join us in song for our National Anthem, our College Hymn and College Song in your homes.

This year we have placed special emphasis on our Matric Class of 2020.  With this in mind, a special brochure has been created for them from the Founders’ Day event that was pre-recorded and filmed with them on Campus recently.  Our Head Girl, Rutendo Kawelenga and Head Boy, Devon Casey each gave an inspiring address to their fellow Matric students, which gained them both a standing ovation from their peers.  Their speeches can be found on the brochure below.  To download a copy of the Founders’ Day Matric 2020 brochure, please click here

We are incredibly proud of our Matric Class of 2020 and congratulate them on being Stronger, One & All.

Thank you for joining us in this celebration, we are indeed STRONGER, ONE & ALL.
