Parent Feedback from St. Johns

We recently received feedback from a St. Johns College Parent:

"I am a St John’s parent and my son played cricket at your school yesterday afternoon in a 3rd or 4th team match. I arrived around mid-afternoon to watch the second half of his game. I was hugely impressed with the manners, courtesy and respect of every single Parktown boy I came into contact with yesterday. From those waiting on the pavement outside the gate to each and every boy I passed as I walked down to the bottom field; without exception I was greeted by each boy who stood up if seated and doffed his cap if wearing one. My own son even commented on the exceptional display of good manners as we walked back to the car after the game.

What further really impressed me is that while I sat near to the Parktown team on the embankment seating when they were batting and in all the time I sat there I did not hear one swear word or inappropriate language from any of them. I have yet to be on the periphery of a group of teenage boys and not hear bad language from at least someone irrespective of the school involved.

I have visited almost every single school across Gauteng to watch my sons play sport over the years and I can honestly say that my visit to your school ranks right at the top.

Please congratulate your boys and the staff who instill these very important values in them on a job very well done."
