Community Engagement

S t Andrew’s College is an open campus that spans six blocks. It is embedded in the Grahamstown community, economically, geographically and socially. Our boys live cheek-by-jowl with Rhodes University academics and students, the local business and legal fraternity, many other schools and churches and tourists. However, as in so many South African cities, there is a significant component of indigent, unemployed townsfolk.

It is vital that our boys learn to empathize with people who are afflicted by unemployment and poverty, or are simply less fortunate that they are. Our extensive and diverse range of activities offer boys the opportunity to engage in a meaningful way with the Grahamstown community and make a lasting contribution.
