Busy holiday ahead for Jeppe teams


The School closes for the April holidays on Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean there is going to be much of a break for the boys and staff members who are involved in the winter sports programme as hockey and rugby teams will be playing in festivals across the country.

Both 1st teams will be in action at the King Edward Easter Festival from Thursday to Monday this week, with the 1st hockey team going straight from there to Bloemfontein to play in the under-18 Nomads Festival in Bloemfontein.

The junior hockey and rugby teams will also be in action this week and next.
