St Andrew’s College is pleased to host the U14 Independent Schools Hockey Festival from 19 to 22 April. “The opportunity to host such a festival does not occur very often and as a result, we are looking forward to giving the boys, supporters, and staff the chance to experience a wonderful few days in Grahamstown while playing competitive hockey,” said Gary Frayne, Master in Charge of hockey at St Andrew’s.
