In a move designed to bring the sport of cricket to as many young learners as possible, an exciting initiative was launched at Kingswood College on Wednesday afternoon. e to many talented young people, especially in the sports arena, but very often this talent cannot be identified, nurtured or taken further, due to a lack of infrastructure and facilities. The Young Warriors Cricket Development Programme is a pilot project and takes the form of a partnership between three local primary schools (George Dickerson, St Mary’s and Grahamstown Primary), Kingswood College, the Rhodes University HKE (Human Kinetics & Ergonomics) Department and the Rhodes Community Engagement Office (RUCE), as well as the Gary Kirsten Foundation.
We are privileged to be able to have Zapiro as our 2022 speaker at the annual Neil Aggett Memorial Lecture. The theme of this talk is “Standing up against injustice” and the title of Zapiro’s talk is “Makhanda Forever”. Every year Kingswood College hosts a memorial lecture in honour of Neil Aggett, a former pupil who paid the ultimate price during the anti-apartheid struggle for liberation. The lecture is a tribute to all those brave men and women who laid down their lives in the fight for human rights and social justice.
