KES Announce Easter Rugby Festival 2021 Participants


The KES Easter Rugby and Hockey Festival was first staged in 2002 as a key event in celebrating King Edward VII School`s Centenary. It was originally planned as a once off Festival but as a result of the huge success, it turned out to be, became an integral component of the School`s annual calendar.

A crucial ingredient of the Festival is to provide a platform for the participating teams to play without the pressures so typical of normal seasonal fixtures and to also pit their skills against opposition who they would not normally encounter, a recipe for unhindered expression of talents.

The Festival has a unique `family` flavour and is considered an annual pilgrimage for multitudes of old boys, and friends of the School. Senior rugby and hockey teams, as well as enthusiastic Primary School teams showcase their skills over a period of 3 days. .will participate and provide visitors and supporters with a feast of top-class schoolboy sport.

Participating Schools: Ben Vorster, Centurion, Durbanville, Eldoraigne, Florida, Hudson Park, Jeppe, KES, Marais Viljoen, Marlow Landbou, Nico Malan, Northwood Boys High, Queens College & Trinity House.
