St Andrew’s College 2016 Matric Rite of Passage

OCTOBER 3, 2016

The St Andrew’s College Matric class of 2016 were ceremoniously led from Centenary Hall by Piper and Old Andrean, Mr Chris Terry, and Head Boy Sazi Sandi, through a tunnel made up of staff and pupils.

The tunnel wove its way through the iconic St Andrew’s College campus past the historic Clock Tower, the beautiful Sir Herbert Baker Chapel, and finally into The Antony Clark Andrean Resource Centre where each boy signed their name in a leather-bound register.

The ceremony culminated in each Matric boy receiving his Old Andrean tie from Mr Mark Cotton vice-president of the Old Andrean Committee (OA, Graham – 1991) and Mr Simphiwe Nghona (OA, Espin – 1995). They proceeded to The Highlander where they were addressed by Mr Simphiwe Nghona. He said that Old Andreans are people of honour, respect, substance, courage and pride.

He encouraged the Matric pupils to lead by example and be superb ambassadors of College. The Matrics were welcomed into a new chapter of their St Andrew’s College story, Old Andreans for life!The ceremony culminated in each boy receiving his Old Andrean tie, and being welcomed into a new chapter of their St Andrew’s College story.
