Excellent Science Projects Presented at Expo

altDuring the first term all Grade 9 boys conducted science expo investigations through which they learnt valuable scientific problem-solving skills. The research conducted was of a high standard and the presentation of their projects was particularly commendable.


 

Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival Outreach

altAs part of our Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival Outreach initiative, “Boots and Balls”, Kearsney is, together with the KZNRU Development Programme, collecting rugby gear to donate to players from less privileged backgrounds, making it easier for these youngsters to get involved in this wonderful game.

We appeal to everyone to bring along new or good-condition second-hand rugby kit and place it in the bright yellow branded bins placed in front of the Henderson Hall on campus. These designated collection bins will also be alongside the Stott during the Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival.

All sizes of rugby shorts and jerseys, socks, boots, rugby balls, kit bags and any equipment would be appreciated. Contributions will be handed over during the closing ceremony after the final game of the Kearsney Easter Rugby Festival on 06 April. Our thanks go to Standard Bank, The Sharks and Illovo Sugar for contributing to the start-up of this initiative.

Valued sponsorship from Nashua
