The second week  of February was one of the special weeks at Kingsmead as we officially welcomed our new students to the Junior School. As per Kingsmead tradition, the students had an opportunity to place their stones in the Isivivane garden and beat the dundun drum. We hope your stay at Kingsmead will be filled with Happiness, Courage and Possibilities.

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.

“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.
