Grey High School In Port Elizabeth Named Sports School Of The Decade

SA SCHOOL Sports Magazine has named Grey High School in Port Elizabeth as the top-performing boy’s sports school of the decade.

It announced on Monday this week that it had taken the rankings of the four sporting codes of Rugby, Cricket, Water Polo and Hockey into consideration in determining the winner.

Grey High School came out tops on 99 points with Grey College from Bloemfontein second on 95.64 points.

Rondebosch Boys High in Cape Town were third on 90.38 points.

The top ten list includes two other Eastern Cape Schools.

Selborne College from East London was 5th on 85.11 points and St Andrews College from Makhanda was 8th on 83.09 points.

Grey High director of sport Neil Bielby said it was a huge honour for the school and everyone involved in making the school a success over the years.

“We are certainly very proud of the achievement and it is certainly a wonderful achievement for the whole Grey community. It is particularly pleasing to get recognition for four different sporting codes. We try our best to always keep a balance between our sports,” he said.

“We always encourage, where ever possible for a boy to participate in both a summer and a winter sport, which allows them to have a very balanced approach to their sport. A large portion of our teaching staff are involved with our extramural programme and this forms the backbone of our sport at the school. We also have specialist coaches in the various sports and they along with our academic staff put in many hours of effort and practice to make a success of Grey sport.”

Springbok World Cup-winning captain Siya Kolisi,  SA water polo player Jason Everzard and more recently, SA under-19 cricketers Luke Beaufort and Tiaan van Vuuren are just some of the many names to have attended the school.
