Every year in the month of August we at Regina Mundi School organise and host the the Br D O Slattery Memorial Tournament.The tournament is held in the memory of Br Slattery who is a much loved former brother – teacher of the school who ,the legend says,used to referee football games at RMS even at the age of seventy.He passed on his passion for football and love for sports to all students he taught.The Tournament is held every year to keep alive that spirit of sportsmanship that he sought to inculcate amongst the children of RMS.
On the 20th and 21st of August this year the 23rd edition of the Tournament was held on the school grounds.
