Royal College boasts of a great many annual events, including the second oldest consecutive cricket encounter in the world; the Battle of the Blues Cricket Encounter. While the school hosts its own distinguished major events, annual events are even present within Clubs & Societies as well as Sports. An outstanding feature of the background of these events is that many of them require a heavy involvement of the students in the organizing department, and keeping with Royal standards the quality of these events show the level of ability within the student population of Royal College. These events are held with many purposes, but one that stands out is the recognition of excellence. Be it excellence through Academics, Sports or Clubs & Societies there is an event to recognize and encourage the students to keep pushing the limit of their abilities and making Royal proud.
