On 18 February 2021, the day that IEB Matric Results were released, we shared a video wishing our Class of 2020 well. Their commitment and resilience in what was a very tough year has taught us to be courageous and to be united as a community. The whole Kingsmead community is so proud of them.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020! Your outstanding results in the NSC Final Examinations are the result of your determination, grit and dedication during an exceptionally challenging year. You have proved that you are a force with which to be reckoned and you will, no doubt, go on to make a difference in the world. We are delighted with the results of each individual student and with the class as a whole. Thank you to the superb teaching staff at Kingsmead – both in the Junior and the Senior schools – who nurtured you and prepared you for this journey. We wish you every success in your bright futures!

“The world is torn with strife and conflict of thought and belief – economic, political, religious – it has a need, as never before, of thinking men and women, disciplined, controlled and sincere persons. I would like to feel that Kingsmead will send out considerate, disciplined, efficient women, but above all, women in some sense consecrated to the search after truth and happiness. Then indeed we need not fear that we can play our part in the world and play it worthily.” – DV Thompson, 1934
Our founder would have been so proud of the achievements of our Class of 2020.
One of the benefits of COVID and the later-than-usual results release date is that it afforded us the opportunity to celebrate the success of this incredible group of students today. It was so wonderful to see you all!
The farmyard came to Mornington! Our creche and pre-school children had a fabulous morning learning about these farm animals. They were able to feed them and even have a ride on a pony! It was the most magical morning listening to the delight and excitement. We have so missed these moments.
Congratulations Alexa Lipchin, one of our Matric students from the Class of 2020, on achieving ten distinctions! We are incredibly proud to call you one of our own. Click here to read more on this accomplished young lady in an article by the Independent Online.
