College – Issue 36

DEVELOPMENT Jerry Rowberry Sports Scholarship Fund

Many of our parents and sponsors would like to see more talented young sportsmen have the opportunity to attend College through our scholarship programme. Our basketball and rugby communities are particularly strong in identifying talented boys and seeing their potential go far.
