24 4 Smiley

24 4 Smiley is a Community Engagement fundraising project at St Andrew’s College and is organized by Grade 11 boys. The objective is to raise funds and awareness of orphans and vulnerable children.
The event is named after Stuart “Smiley” van Oldenborgh who died tragically in an aircraft accident in his Grade 9 year in 2011. Smiley, as most called him, was in Graham House and it was Graham House that initiated the event which has since become an annual event in which people celebrate the lives of those they have lost.
In April 2013, Matthew Archer, the Community Engagement Portfolio Prefect and one of the organisers of the 24 4 Smiley in 2012, died in a motor-cycle accident and many participants also run or walk to honour Matt’s memory too. He was a talented and dedicated athlete who gave selflessly of himself, never seeking the limelight and always doing good.
This year, the event starts on 24 September – which was Smiley’s birth date – and continues on Sunday 25 September, from 10am to 10pm on both days. Join us on Knowling Field as we remember and celebrate the lives of all the boys we have lost during their time at College.
