It’s been an unusual second term for all of us at Kingsmead College but our students and staff have continued to adapt to and embrace these challenging circumstances. Here are a few highlights from the month of July:
One of our piano teachers, Sue Grealy, and her wonderful students made this very entertaining video of their take on online piano lessons. It certainly made us smile.
Our online learning programme is full S.T.E.A.M. ahead and our students are experiencing fun, interactive sessions with their teachers. The Grade 7s had an awesome lesson as scientists in the kitchen, experimenting with chemical reactions by making and comparing results of various solutions.
On your marks, get set, go!
The Kingsmead College Junior School Inter-house Virtual 52km run kicked off on 13 July and ended on 24 July at 6pm. How far did you go for your house?

31 July marked the end of the second term, and what a different one it had been! We thank our Kingsmead Community for the support and courage shown as we grappled and found our feet in this different version of ‘normal’. Thank you to our teachers and staff for all they have done in the last term to ensure teaching has taken place.
We wish you all a relaxing, happy and healthy break and we look forward to seeing you in spring!
