THE INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS CRICKET FESTIVAL

24-27 FEBRUARY 2022

SHANE KIDWELL

HEADMASTER’S WELCOME

It is always a pleasure to welcome staff, parents and boys to the St Alban’s campus for the Independent Schools Cricket Festival. This Festival and interaction between schools has been a longstanding affair and the rivalry and camaraderie displayed over many years has always been collegial. We are looking forward to interacting again and I would like to invite all our visitors to make themselves at home on our beautiful campus. 

The Independent Schools Cricket Festival has been around for over 30 years and it is always a pleasure to host all the participating schools. There is a legacy of sportsmanship and positive interaction over a long period of time and it is, once again, a privilege to welcome old friends, staff, particularly those who have attended this festival for a number of years, parents and boys to the capital city.  

We are delighted that many parents have travelled from around the country to join their sons and we sincerely hope that you will enjoy all that Pretoria has to offer. 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 is there to be used at your convenience as is the Tom Hamilton Wellness Centre, where you can get an early morning cup of coffee from our very own Barista, Lawrence Mthombeni.

The fact that our grounds are in such good shape is a tribute to our Sports Facilities Manager, Mr Rob Schipholt and our Grounds Manager, Mr John Nkuna, who himself played in this festival on two occasions while a schoolboy here over a decade ago. Thanks also goes to Mr Garth Turvey (Director of Sport), Mr Anton Ferreira (Director of Cricket) and Mr Chicco Ponela, our High-Performance Coach, for their passion and hard work for this event. 

Above all, I sincerely hope that we will appreciate the privilege of once again being able to play and watch sport and I hope that your experience will be an enjoyable one! To the players, enjoy the competitiveness on the field and the relationships and friendships you build as the Festival unfolds.

Kind regards,

Shane Kidwell
