We give thanks

altThe Annual Kearsney Staff Thanksgiving Service at the end of the academic year took place in the beautifully illuminated Chapel on campus. The early morning sun light filtered through the familiar stained glass windows as the Chaplain, Rev James Headbush led the proceedings. The tri-lingual service, with receptionist Europa Ngubane acting as the animated translator, was an encouragement to all to be thankful for what we have and to look back with gratitude at God’s goodness to us as individuals, as families and as a school. The College records with thanksgiving, the goodness of God in 2014.

Squash team perform well at festival 

altLast week our squash team enjoyed a successful tour to Cape Town, where they participated in the prestigious Wynberg Squash Festival.

Squash at Kearsney has grown in strength and popularity over recent years and the increased profile of the sport has resulted in the sports code being awarded Kearsney’s International Sports Tour for 2015. The tour will be to Malaysia and Singapore where the boys and staff members can learn a great deal more about the game.

The parents of the boys involved will be hosting several fund raising initiatives to assist with some of the costs involved. These events will be advertised on the weekly emails. There should be something for everyone so please look out for these events and support our squash players in their efforts. The first event is on Tuesday 28 October and promises to be extremely popular.

The results of the Wynberg Festival were as follows:

Beat St Stithians 6-0

Beat Wynberg Boys' High 4-2

Beat SACS 4-2

Lost to Pretoria Boys' High 5-1

Lost to Grey PE 4-2

Special mention must be made of Cameron Ritchie who went undefeated through the festival in the Number 1 position against some of the best players in the country.
