Message from Kearsney College Old Boys President
Mhlangenkululeko Siwisa (Finningley, 2001)
Standing on the western verge of the Founders Avenue meander, under the safeguard and canopy of distinguished tall plane trees, The Greyhound maintains its vigil – both in silent salutation to those entering the Kearsney estate, and poignantly, a final vestige as one leaves the grounds.
Across from the Greyhound sits “Isivivane”, a project initiated by former Headmaster Elwyn van den Aardweg. A cairn where returning Old Boys and friends of Kearsney can lay a stone from their respective origins – an unspoken expression in acknowledgement of the inextricable bond with the school; and a beacon to guide one Home.
It is for these reasons that in the years to follow, the Greyhound lays the scene where life-long fraternal bonds formed during our time at Kearsney are fostered, in line with the indelible pride and passion built within us during our time together – and with 2023 marking the 95th anniversary of the KCOB, long may those fine bonds continue.
