In September 2016, St John’s embarked on another sporting tour to the UK. (Please read 2016 UK Sporting Tour Report and Photos). The College has a proud history over the last twenty years of providing students with the opportunity of being involved in overseas sporting tours to a number of places including New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu and England.
Sport allows young people to learn about touring, about other traditions, cultures and history, about team and school spirit, and also about discipline, pride in one’s school and what it means to be an ambassador for our College. The tour was a memorable one for the students. They immersed themselves in the culture and history of the UK and Ireland, liaised with students from different schools and enjoyed tourist sights.
Students used their experiences to then develop netball, rugby and soccer in the coming years at St John’s, and to develop team spirit and ongoing friendships among students and staff.
St John’s College sincerely thanks our major and generous sponsor:
