Dear Parents, Staff and Boys
It is always a pleasure to welcome the Headmaster, Mr Tony Reeler, staff, parents and boys of Pretoria Boys’ High to the St Alban’s campus. This fixture and interaction between our two schools has been a longstanding affair and the rivalry and camaraderie displayed when our two schools compete against each other, has always been collegial. We are looking forward to interacting again today and I would like to invite all our visitors to make themselves at home in the peaceful environment of our campus. Please take advantage of our hospitality, relax and enjoy yourselves and do not hesitate to ask our staff or boys should you have any queries or require any assistance. The Anton Murray Pavilion and @thegreyandblue, above the astroturf, are there to be used at your convenience and drinks and snacks will be available for parents and staff after every game.
St Alban’s College continues to grow in stature and although we are not nearly as old as PBHS, we are particularly proud of our sporting tradition dating back to 1963. Sport is a wonderful way for boys to learn and grow and although there will be specific rivalries today, I sincerely hope that everyone involved today will not only enjoy the interaction but learn from their experiences.
I extend my sincere thanks to all the staff who accompany and coach these young men, for giving them this wonderful opportunity and for supporting them. I would particularly like to thank Krinesan Moodley, our Director of Sport, and his team for putting together the programme and for ensuring that everyone has a rewarding experience. It would also be remiss of me not to congratulate and thank Johnny Nkuna and our ground staff for ensuring that our facilities are well prepared.
Lastly, to all the players, enjoy the competition but ensure that rivalry and competition do not become your masters. Play hard but fair, and most of all develop friendships and ensure that you live, learn and enjoy your experiences on the field.
