Inter-Crawford showcased the depth of talent and passion within our school community, demonstrating how each Crawford International school is united by a common dedication to fostering student well-being and success. From Kenya to Ruimsig, students embraced the opportunity to connect with peers from diverse backgrounds, learning from one another and celebrating their shared love for sports.
