Following Drakensberg Primary’s athletic achievements, St Dominics Newcastle hosted its annual Grade 7 tea on February 20.

The purpose of the Grade 7 tea is to allow Grade 7 learners from neighbouring schools in NKZN to visit St Dominics.

At the tea, the St Dominics learners showcase their school’s facilities and forge new friendships. The tea is followed by a tour of the school, allowing the visiting learners the chance to consider selecting St Dominics as their school of choice during their high school years.
