Team spirit and a winning attitude were the theme for St Francis College at a recent inter-schools sports weekend held in Plettenberg Bay.
Pupils played against hosts Greenwood Independent School, where children were involved in hockey and soccer matches.

Great weather and supportive parents contributed to an exciting atmosphere, with college teams enjoying their matches.
“I am so proud of all the pupils,” said acting head Caroline Anderson. “Their behaviour, neatness and sportsmanship were impeccable.”
