Kearsney CollegeIn line with President Cyril Ramaphosa’s declaration of a National State of Disaster last night, the 13th Standard Bank Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival has been canceled.

Kearsney headmaster Elwyn van den Aardweg said South Africans need to come together to support each other at this hour and adopt a spirit of social responsibility and civic-mindedness to support the national effort and minimise the impacts within the country.

Next year is Kearsney’s centenary and a special edition of the festival is being planned with exciting new teams, Van den Aardweg said.  These include a number of schools with which Kearsney has had a long relationship over many decades, to ensure a suitable commemoration of the 100-year milestone with schools that have been traditional friends and rivals.
