Saints Prep Festival 2019 (11-13 April 2019)
It's a wrap! Saints Prep Fest took place from Thursday 11 April to Saturday 13th April back and lived up to the promise of being bigger and better than ever before!
It really was an incredible showcase of some of South Africa's finest up and coming young athletes in our four sporting codes on offer; rugby, netball, tennis and squash. We thank all of our participating preparatory schools that came out to compete on the sports fields and courts of St Stithians College in this year's instalment of the ever growing #SaintsPrepFest, no doubt many friendships and memories have been made. To all of the coaches, managers, support staff and supporters, we thank you for the part that you all had to play in the success of this school sport showcase.
#SaintsPrepFest2019 really did offer a great couple of days of entertainment for the entire family and a wonderful opportunity to support our young local talent. If our Prep Fest is anything to go by, we are in for a treat this coming weekend at the College edition of #SaintsFest2019.
