Remarkable athletic achievements for Kearsney Old Boy

altMpumelelo (Mpumi) Mhlongo (Kearsney Old Boys of 2012) was born with a handicap which affects the function of one of his legs and yet despite this he has done amazing things.

The UCT student, who is studying Chemical Engineering, has been breaking All African Athletics records. At the National Championships for the Physically Disabled, Mpumi became the South African T44 champion in the 100m, 200m, long jump and high jump - breaking the African records for the latter two. This qualifies Mpumi for the IPC World Championships in all four.         

Whilst at Kearsney Mpumi tackled every possible opportunity and achieved great success which resulted in him being awarded the Edwin Henwood Tropy in Grade 12. The trophy is for scholastic achievement (Mpumi achieved 7 distinctions), success in sport and and setting a good example to his peers with his leadership style (he was Head of Finningley and Head of Choir), upholding Christian principles and display courage in overcoming difficulties.

Kearsney Old Boy visits from Harvard

alt

Greg Royston (Class of 2013) is now on his summer break from Harvard University and we were delighted that he took the time to return to Kearsney to inspire the boys with his passionate address about some of his experiences and people he has met in the USA.

Greg achieved 9 distinctions in his final Matric exams in 2013. He also enjoyed phenomenal success on the golf course and played golf for KZN Men’s in 2013, having been the KZN Schools Golf Champion and making the SA Schools golf team in 2012.

Greg did exceptionally well in his freshman year of a four year undergraduate Liberal Arts degree at Harvard. He plans to major in Applied Mathematics and Economics.Greg also represented Harvard in the eight member Men’s Golf team. His success over the season saw Greg named The Ivy League Rookie of the Year.

Greg will be playing in golf events in SA before he returns to Harvard in mid-August to be a team leader on the Freshman International Programme before his next semester starts.

Greg is an extremely loyal and humble Old Boy with infectious enthusiasm and we hope to have regular visits from him when he returns home. We wish him well for the forthcoming academic year.

Greg is pictured here with the top 5 pupils in Grades 8, 9 and 10.

altKearsney Show Support Against Rhino Poaching

The statistics for rhino poaching are horrific, with one rhino being killed in South Africa every 8 hours so far this year. Kearsney boys added their voices to the #RHINOSHOUOUTCHALLENGE after being challenged by Maritzburg College. Between the 2nd and 1st team rugby matches vs Maritzburg College at Kearsney on Saturday 16 May, the two schools made a joint statement against rhino poaching by creating a rhino shape on the Stott - the main rugby field. The Headboy of Kearsney, Robbie Polkinghorne, issued a challenge to Hilton College, Michaelhouse and St Stithians College to join the challenge.

The legendary Kingsley Holgate and Project Rhino KZN spokesperson, Sheelagh Antrobus, were present and both mentioned the important role which the youth can play by getting involved to save these creatures and other endangered wildlife.
