” Testimonials “

  • My name is Fezeka Nzama, our Creston College Head Girl for the year 2017. I have been at Creston since Grade 8. I have always had a strong academic record, but it certainly has improved since I started at Creston, due to the support we receive from our teachers. I do an array of activities at our school, with a particular interest in hockey, drama and debating. One of the things I love about Creston is that I have the opportunity to do so many different things, and I have been allowed to really explore all my talents and grow as a person. I think above all else what has made my past five years at Creston so memorable, and truly a blessing, is the fact that I have been part of the Creston family.

Creston College Sport

Creston College believes that sport is an integral part of the development process of each and every individual. Sport is compulsory, as we encourage maximum participation of all pupils by offering as wide a variety of sporting codes as possible. At Creston we promote an active and healthy lifestyle.

Most popular sports are offered during their respective seasons such as:

  • Rugby
  • Hockey for boys and girls
  • Cricket
  • Soccer for boys and girls
  • Netball
  • Golf
  • Swimming
  • Eco Challenge
  • Athletics
  • Mountain Biking

The South Coast weather allows pupils to participate in swimming for more than six months of the year in our well-appointed eight-lane swimming pool. Outstanding coaching ensures that Creston swimmers excel in local, Regional and National galas.

Athletics is offered during the cooler months of the third term and this includes disciplines such as sprinting, middle distance and cross country running, along with field events such as javelin, discus, shot-put, high jump and long jump.

We believe in promoting and instilling team spirit and pride in all of our team sports, which has allowed our teams to excel in our local leagues as well as Regional, National and International tournaments.

It is important to note that all pupils who attend practices regularly, are given the opportunity to play matches in a team, regardless of their ability, thus enabling each individual to benefit from the social and emotional development of being part of a team.

Creston is very open to the fact that children may excel in sports not offered at school and we have produced a number of elite motor-x riders as well as learners who have excelled in sports such as karate, badminton and Polo Crosse at a National and International level.

Creston College Culture

Creston College has a dynamic and thriving Arts and Culture department.  Not only are all our teachers qualified in their field of art and culture, they are also performing artists themselves.  Through this, they teach our pupils content and practical, as well as prepare them to be performing and visual artists in their own right.

Examples of such activities include:

  • Podium
  • Speech and Drama
  • Art
  • Stage Productions
  • Choirs
  • Music
  • Marimba Bands

Culture plays a significant role in the life of our school and it is here that the “Harmony”, as stated in our mission statement, truly comes into play.  This harmony is felt between pupils when performing on stage, singing together as a choir and performing together as a band.  The beautiful colours and lines that flow from the tools of our artist into flowing movements of dances choreographed by the pupils themselves.  There is even harmonious movement between academics and culture, as we have often found that children’s academic work can in fact improve if their cultural talents are acknowledged and developed.

Our pupils are encouraged to participate in a variety of local and national cultural events including competitions and eisteddfods.  Creston even has the privilege of hosting the annual Hibiscus Coast Music Eisteddfod.

Our College Phase pupils write their own scripts and design their own programmes, lighting and sets.  Input by pupils, especially in the choice of music and choreography, is encouraged as this not only develops the pupils’ skills but ensures that our productions have a modern and funky edge.
