Welcome to Graeme College

Graeme College, founded in 1873, caters for just over 650 boys from Grade 00 to Grade 12, and also offers an Enrichment Year. Graeme College offers its students the rare opportunity of beginning and completing their entire school career in the same setting. Because of the single structure, there is a unique atmosphere at the school.

Graeme College is a traditional boys-only school with a rich heritage. Emphasis is laid on commitment, hard work, involvement, sportsmanship and the positive development of all who pass through the school’s doors. The College's motto “Virtute et Opera” (through courage and hard work) is the underpinning value encouraged for all activities.

At Graeme we attempt to foster an atmosphere where respect for the rights of all people are paramount, while encouraging individual boys to appreciate that they have certain duties and obligations to the society of which they are part.

Our learners are very important to us and we are privileged to see them grow from small pre-school learners into strapping young men ready to take their place in society.  There are so many opportunities given at this amazing school and, ultimately, it is the wish of all staff to see the men of Graeme College striving to make the best of these in their quest to reach their full potential.

Marais Field Changing Facility

Graeme College currently does not have any change room facilities on Marais Field, which is extensively used during Summer and obvious Winter fixtures.

This would also include toilet facilities for supporters, as well as a tuckshop area and a braai facility. Currently parents put up an ‘army tent’ each Saturday to braai and sell goods. The main focus though is an area for home and visiting teams to change.

It is possibly the most needed facility on our campus. It will make an enormous difference to supporters and boys of Graeme College.

It was a superb weekend for the Graeme College cricket sides. The first XI continued on their impressive learning curve, as they had a double fixture this weekend. First was the CSA T20 knock-out game against Muir College in Uitenhage.

Siya Mdlankomo (2 for 18) set the tone early with a brilliant first over picking up an early wicket with impressive energy. A combination of youth an experience from Mornay Kohl and Aaron Richardson got Graeme through a tough start, and weathered the storm. Kohl showed how much he is improving with every game, and played a crucial role, along with Richardson. The pair put on a partnership of 108 in 13 overs, before Kohl was dismissed for 37. Graeme lost wickets in the pursuit of quick runs, which included a brilliant cameo by Riaan Labuschagne who scored 36 off 21 balls. It was Richardson though who took the game away from Muir. He scored 71 off 45 balls, which included 7 sixes and 2 fours.That propelled Graeme to an impressive 165/ 5 despite their slow start.

In reply, Muir showed great intent as Wonga Hobo took the attack to the Graeme bowlers.He scored 38 off 39, but struggled to find partners to bat with. Despite being ahead of the rate in the powerplay, Graeme managed to keep picking up wickets. The Graeme bowlers managed to keep their cool, and then quality death bowling by Siphesihle Madlongolwana (3 for 13) meant that Graeme restricted Muir to 100 all out, winning by 65 runs. Aaron Richardson ended a good day with figures of 2 for 27 in 4 overs.

On Saturday, the 1st XI moved on to Alex Road, where they bowled first this time. Alex were in early trouble after a tight opening spell from the Graeme bowlers. Lakhanya Sam picked up early wickets (2 for 7) applying a little pressure on the Alex team. It was young Mihlali Kobese who completey turned the match upside down as he came on as the first change bowler.With swing on offer, Kobese picked up phenomenal figures of 6 for 3 runs, as he ripped through the Alex line-up. Alex were bowled out for 27. It was Kobese's first 5-wicket haul for the 1st XI and obviously his best figures so far. With very little pressure on the Graeme batsmen, they managed to pass the score 2 wickets down. Graeme won by 8 wickets.

THe u15A side had a humdinger battle with Alex. Alex scored 64 all out with Connor Pieterse (3 for 0), Kamva Mancoko (2 for 5), Lagon Oerson (2 for 13) and Sivu Sixaba (2 for 15) all picking up wickets. In reply, Graeme were in all sorts of trouble. Musab Hayat (22 not out) and Kamva Mancoko got Graeme home with a 38 run partnership, winning by 2 wickets.

Alex won the 2nd team game comfortably, while the Graeme u14A side had a equally comfortable win. Onosizo Ntinga picked up 6 for 13, as Alex were bowled out for 53. Graeme won by 4 wickets.

The Graeme Junior side will be very pleased with 4 out of 5 wins against Sunrdige on Saturday. There were good wins for u13B, u11A, u11B and u9A,
