In 2021, St George’s College will be celebrating 125 years and alongside this the Old Georgians Association will be celebrating its Centenary (100 years).
St George's College brings together a rare and exhilarating blend of academic excellence, social engagement, sporting prowess and cultural enrichment.
St George's College offers a comprehensive curriculum to cater for all our pupils’ aspirations.
Our Jesuit Ethos flows from the twofold commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ which stresses the love of God and love of one’s neighbour.
We offer a comprehensive cultural programme which provides pupils the opportunity to develop skills needed in a changing world, and to learn the value of doing everything for the Greater Glory of God.
We have a variety of activities that take place during the term. We are keen to keep you informed on up and coming events you maybe interested in.
In the last issue of Dragons’ Tale, we featured OG Tawanda Chikasha (class of 2014), who was about to embark on his first-ever sailing event, the famous Cape to Rio yachting race.
His team, Ciao Bella – JM BUSHA 54, was a six-man student-only team, and the crew was one of the youngest entrants in this year’s race. They left Cape Town on 4th January at midday, sailing in the name of peace and unity in Africa.
The crew arrived, victorious, in Rio de Janeiro on 28th January finishing an incredible third out of a field of 25. They were the first monohull to complete the approximately 3600 nautical mile journey (6670km) in 23 days and 16 hours, on Tuesday 28th January.
Fascinating but tactically-demanding, the Cape to Rio requires seamanship and weather-savvy-sailors, with it being the longest continent-to-continent yacht race in the southern hemisphere.
