Kearsney has been offered the opportunity to play Grey College in a curtain raiser to the Cheetahs vs Cardiff game scheduled to take place in Bloemfontein on 04 August 2012. It’s actually quite a privilege for Kearsney to have been invited to participate in this special fixture.
Making the occasion of great importance to Grey College is that the main game will be played in honour of Sir George Grey and Johan Volsteedt who have both made a massive contribution to the dual medium-school. Grey College and Grey High School in PE for that matter are named after George Grey, the former Governor of the Cape Colony. Johan Volsteedt is the retiring headmaster of the Bloemfontein rugby factory, having spent 19 years at the helm and 41 years in total at the school. Incidentally Volsteedt’s father was also a headmaster at Grey College – wow! His replacement is Hilton College Afrikaans teacher and house master Deon Scheepers.
Kearsney also have plans in motion to send a representative team to the Independent Schools Week in the 3rd term.
