OLD BOYS DINNER - REPORT DIARY OF HAPPENINGS AND FUNDRAISING EVENTS
The Annual Old Boys Dinner was attended about 80 guys this year and Rod Schafer stood down as Chairman after some 26 years in the chair. It was another successful evening with Brian Jerome(Class 1946) our MC for the evening and our speakers were Pat Trimborn (Class 1957 – 1st XV Cricket and ex Springbok Cricket), Jimmy Pershouse (Class 1948 – 1st XV Rugby, 1st XI Cricket – ex Springbok baseball), Jack Arde (Class 1946 – 1st XV Rugby. It was wonderful to see some of them wearing their ex Springbok blazers and some of the Class 2005 wear their honours blazers. Here are some of the messages Rod received on his retirement: “Dear Rod, I am not able to join you tomorrow evening to celebrate the 2006 Old Boys Dinner. Your dedication and commitment to The Old Boys extends back many years and I know what values you and Ros have added to the organisation. The strength today in The Old Boys is in many ways a direct result of what you have put into it. Your passion, drive and real “true blue” spirit will not doubt be sorely missed as you move on, I know that you will not “move away” and that The Old Boys will remain a special part of you. Let’s hope the younger generation will come back and support The Marist Family as you have done so tirelessly over so many years. As an Old Boy I am very grateful for this. I hope the dinner goes off well, give it a good “tonk” – enjoy. My thoughts will be with you. Kind regards Mike Boden” Dear Rod, Ros and al The Marist Association – Tonight Friday 2nd June, the True Blue past pupils from St Henry’s will be gathering in Wimbledon, London, to celebrate the annual Marist Association dinner (or drinks for us!!!). It is the 4th time that we have gathered in London to celebrate our old boy’s status. It is always a relaxed, festive occasion in which anything between 20/30 guys from all years sit and have a few beers and a good old chat. No doubt, talk will focus on the days back at St Henry’s and there will be a joke or two shared about those days, and we will be with you in spirit (in more ways than one!!!!!!) We will toast you at 9.30pm your time. So here’s hoping you raise your glasses to those of us far from home, still connected in a very special way to the school we have fond memories of. Enjoy your evening… Regards Gerald Maidens Hi there – I would like to express a very special sentimental greeting to you both as you retire from handling The Marist Old Boys over such a long period. Each year I have noted with awe the effort that you put in towards making The Old Boys Association tick ever so smoothly. Because of various reasons, much concerned with my work as a sport journalist – now into its 57th year – I did not have the change of getting more involved. But it was always a delight to get a personal call to attend the annual dinner and on occasions when I thought I might not be able to get there that “special touch” made all the difference and in the end I guess I attended nearly every one from 1980 onwards(not forgetting the one I missed even though I had bought a ticket, I forgot the dinner at the Oyster Box on the night of the function). Anyway in conclusion I want to wish you both well. You will be missed. Best wishes to one and all and a special wish of triumph to your successors……….. Sincerely Dennis Done.

MONTHLY SPORTS FIXTURE LIST AND RESULTS
(By Dave Cohen) Independent Schools Rugby Festival held at Kearsney: July 2006 Every two years The Independent Schools’ Rugby Festival is held either during June or July. This year the festival was hosted by Kearsney College. With the schools in the various provinces being on different term systems, it is difficult for all Independent Schools to make the festival. There was a strong contingent from the Western Cape and Natal, but the stronger Johannesburg failed to make it. St Henry’s who have always been a part of the festival almost from its inception were once again represented this year. A number of players were unable to participate through various injuries sustained during a tough, but highly successful season which saw them win over 60% of their matches. – Coached by Paul Venter, assisted by Jovan Bowles (SA Sevens player, Natal Wildebeest, Valke & St Henrys Old Boy (Class 2000), managed by Stephen Leech and captained by Vitor Ferreira, the 1st XV can be extremely proud of their achievements this year. Being 3 weeks after the players went off for their July holidays; this was our first match in about 4 weeks. To say that we were rusty would be very much the understatement. Our first match was again St Andrews from Bloemfontein. Without taking anything away from the victory of our opponents, it was a match that we could and should have won. We lost 10-13 in a keenly contested match in which territorial advantage and a glut of possession was unfortunately not converted into points. On the following day we played our “old” traditional rivals, St Charles. Shortly before half time we were 3-0 ahead. A break by our scrum half and a tackle on their 22m line saw him tear ligaments in his knee (A recurrence of an injury from his Under 14 days) saw our chances of an upset victory fall away and we were dominated in the 2nd half and lost 3-40. However it was a gutsy performance in a trying circumstance. Early in their season St Charles had beaten a big Durban school by over 70 points!! Which put into perspective, makes our performance even more meritorious. In our final match we were pitted against Penryn College from White River in Mpumalanga. The team’s spy had done his homework well and picked up on their weaknesses and strengths. We played exceptionally well and easily won 27-3. This was a fitting end to both our season as well as an efficiently run festival. Full credit must go to the coaches, manager and players for the entertaining and successful 2006 season.
