* 5cHDnL KdTE5. AinnJAL FLAY» This function was held on the last night of term, 28th June, and as usual the Hall was packed to capacity. The Play performed was three-act comedy entitled "Youth at the Helm" the large audience soon caught the spirit of it, and settled down to an excellent evenings entertainment. There was a little smoking and Just a very little swearing on the stage, but it was all in the Play-book, and must no doubt be accounted part of the educational value of school dramatics, Aryway, the actors learn ed many other things than these; two of them learned touches of femininity (and very gracefully too); two others learned what beards feel like (perhaps); others tasted the authority and the rivalry of City Directors,- The great lesson learned by all how ever was team-work and unselfishness; sweet reasonableness and much sacrifice of leisure are the two bluest factors in assur ing the success of our annual Play-night,. TOO H. The Sixth Forms were introduced to the Toe H move ment when Mr, J, Mallet, the Secretary for Hatal visited the School on June iSth and spent the week-end with us,. Mr, Mallet met the senior boys "unofficially" as well as "officially", and, we hope, has prepared the way for some useful recruits to the Movement later on, OEITUABY, We regret to record the passing on 30th. March, of the Hev, Frank Barritt, Methodist Minister at I5nhlali, Besides being a fairly frequent visitor to the Kearsney pulpit, Mr, Barritt was intensely interested in all the activities of the School, and followed its progress keenly. We extend our sympatly to Mrs, Barritt, CHAPLAIH. We are sorry to record that our Chaplain the Sev. J, Martin White, has had to retire temporarily from Circuit work owing to illness. We wish him a speedy restoration to full health and work among us. In the meantime our Sunday morning services are being taken by various Ministers and local preach ers from the district and from Durban, R'^TTnTiAHSHTP, 'earty congratulation to Earle Smitl

- 5 - TheMewBuildinb5chem£. It is with pleasure that we are able to report further definite progress with the scheme for the new Zearsney College. A little while ago the water supply was completed at a cost of between seven and cighb hundred poundSo I'his involv ed the building of a weir across a stream seme distance from the site where the School is to be; the erection of pumping machinery, the laying of pipe lines, and the building of a concrete storage tanlce At the beginning of June, plans and Bills of Quantities for the new buildings were published, and twelve firms were invited to tender. On July 6th.the Kearsn^yBuild ing Sub-Committee met and accepted the lowest tender, that of Messrs. A.¥. Johnson of Durban. The contract price for' two boarding houses to accommodate sixty boys each, a dining-hall and kitchen block^ and class-rooms, is approximately £35000. The buildings are to be completed by April 1939, so there is eveiy likelihood of the School moving-to Botha's Hill in Aug ust of next year. The Committee has agreed to a total expenditure of £40,000, half of which will have to be borrowed.lEhe amount of £5000 is expected to cover professional fees, the building of garages and servants'' quarters, the laying out of the grounds, and the water supply described abovce There is really an urgent need for more funds but the Committee feel that a debt of £20,000 is the Tna-ir-iTmim that ought to be allowed, and no doubt they are wise in this decision. Owing to this limitation of financial resources, roofs of the School will have to be corrugated iron instead of tiles, there will bo no swimming bath, and the class-rooms will be built in a position t'Jrjat is definitely meant to be temporary instead of in the place they should occupy as shown in the plan of the compi school These restrictions are ur.:. ortunate, but the hlajne certainly cannot be laid upon the Cc. . ittee responsible for workiAfj out the Scheme^ They are as Ar ous as anybody to see the nef?

If another ten thousand pounds could "be raised in donations to the new Kearsney College, it could rank at once as the equal of any other school in Uatal or in South Africa;even another five thousand would make the difference hetween "buildings that are "beyond criticism, and those in which second choice has had to "be given preference over first choice, in matters affecting the materials of construction. In spite of all these handicaps, however, what is heing done is "being-done wellrThe "boarding houses have "been planned with the comfort and care of the "boys who will live in than as the first consideration, and the assurance can "be given with every confidence,that in their internal arranganents, th(y will "be second to none in South Africa, Each House will have four dormitories, two at each end of the "building, and each pair will have li"beral washing, changing and locker acccramodation, There will "be two large recreation rooms, one for Seniors and one for Juniors; there will "be a rocmy prefects' room and two fflnall rooms with a "bath-rocm "between than, for theuse of "boys who are ill, A small Dispensary and a sports store-roan, a "boot-room and a cloak—room are also pro vided in each House, Special attention is "being paid to ventilation, and in the dormitories and recreation roans it is intended to provide a sliding and folding type of window which will give open air conditions when the wea ther is suita"bleo Each House will provide accommodation for a married Housemaster, two single Masters and amatroni The "building of a new "boarding school is a very expensive matter in these days when the standard of livir^g and of educational equipnent is so high, ¥e have to acknowledge that we cannot start off in the new School with all the things we would like to have, and which in deed we ought to have, "but wo must also acknowledge that

9 - and kindly middle-aged City Director. He was very stire of his words, and acted with perfect restraint throuighout. Vermaak, the Managing Director, was a marked contrast to the Chairman; pompous, irascible, full of exaggerated flourishes,he was quite an outstanding personality, and infused a measure of enthu siasm into his colleagues. Ihe other male parts were compara tively small, Stench's forte is evidently that of a commission aire, and we now know what Mark will look like in fifty years' time. Pitch's private secretary, Dorothy, lean and lanky( - and how tall a comparatively small boy looks when put into a dress i) was rather obviously reciting her words, even when flirting with the outraged Pitch. But her diction was very clear and none of her words were lost. Yvonne, the Chairman'"s daughter, had a quieter voice, of a husky nature that one expects from a damsel with flashing eyes and a coquettish tilt of the nose. Lowe, possibly from personal observation, had ac quired quite a number of feminine flourishes, and there can be no doubt that several of the boys "fell" for her. "What a mul titude of sins a coat of paint can cover I Parents and friends were there in good numbers. ¥e counted about SO cars, skilfully parked with the help of scouts, and about 3OO people^ similarly skilfully seated in the hall. The spontaniety of the laughter and applause showed how the evening'^ entertainment was appreciated. That tribute alone should warm the hearts of producers and actors, but in case it does not, we must yet again tell the world that no Kearsney play could ever be a success without the unceasing labours of Mr. & Mrs. Oram and the willingness of the actors to co-operate with thsn in hours of patient rehearsal.

If success and enthusiasm are any criterion, this has heen the finest term's crlket for yearso ilot only have the rirsts carried all before them, "but the Alpha'bats have "been fou^t out keenly till the last day.- In fact the result of the competition vvas not settled until the last day of cricket, when the leaders (Lletcalf's team) succumbed to the bottom team (ihssmore's) and allowed the runners np (Smith's) to head the tablOo Uio streng'ch of the 1st XI lay in the deadliness of the bowling, and the ability of one plajrer or another to make a good score® In the bowling department, Lowe was not as dangerous as he has been, but the accuracy and variation of Bazley, the great advance of Boyd (who in all cricket took over 100 wickets in the one term), and the occasional effectiveness of Chick, have given the opposition no option but to get out. Indeed, our opponents'' first innings totals were only 58,56,69,, 24,46, and 37« Out batting has been rather agricultural, but vastly entertaining, Bazlqy's I4S in 75 minutes against Marists will long be rancmbered, and Smith's II3 vs Eshowe was as wel come as it was unexpected. Groom, Boyd, and Chick have likewise added to the entertainment. Ehe Alphabets have been conspicuous for the fire works of Groom, who scored large quantities of runs in an in credibly short space of time, and for the bowling of Bpyd (who, however, bowled better for the 1st XI than for his Alphabet, where he was inevitably overworked). These two were the best all-rounders, with Balccmb as runner-up. Leading Alphabet figures, batting; Groom,489 runs, average 48.9 (S6, 81 not out, 72, 62, 36, 34); Boyd, 287 runs, average 25,2 (50, 44 out, 36, 27 not out, 25,21,20); Balcomb 253 runs, average 25.3 (65 not out, 43, 37, 20); Smith (39 not out, 34, 26, 26, 24); Foss (50, 33 not out, 29, 20 not out).

Ihe foundations of the three blocks are down and the walls are beginning to rise. Ihe Committee is meeting shortly to arrange for the laying of the foundation stones; the Administrator of Hatal has consented to lay the stone in the dining-hall block, and Mr, J, Cfookes and Mr, A. S» L. Hulett will lay stones in the two boarding houses. The plans for the class-room block are not yet complete, but it is likely that the previous decision to build temporary class rooms will be abandoned and that a section of thepermanent scheme will be proceeded with insteadWork has'begun on the levelling of ground for the playing fields, and Mr» A.S.L.Hulett has generously undertaken to find the necessary labour. ' At its October session, the Conference approved a Constitu tion for the new School and appointed the Board of Governors.They will not assume their responsibilities, however, until the ex isting Building Committee hands over the completed buildings in Ghe middle of 19390 Under the new conditions the same Board of Governors is to manage both the Kearsney and the ii^worth Schools, out there will be separate sub-Committees to carry out detailed control in each case. : ; ■ ■ ■r y iif" ■ i ' .'V . * ■ : • -'r ■

Hulett, Esq., -.ff Presenting his Annual Eeport, the Headmaster referred to tne likelihood of a considerable increase in n-umhers in the coming year, and he attributed this to the forthcoming transfer of ne School to Botha's Hill. In mentioning the excellent examintion resets ^for I937, it was pointed cut tliat in the Junior Certifj.cate Examination the only available major bursary for aided schoolwsas again won by a Kearsney boy, so it had " come to Kearsne;/- for five out of the six years since the bursaries were established. Q 1 reports of the Government Inspectors were excellent, Ihe School had been especialclaynplimented on its standard in Afri kaans, a standard that was declared to be vTell above that of the schools the Inspector had recently visited. _ "I am satisfied" said the Headmaster "that nq school in South Africa can reach the ctdtural .standard at which we aim until the pos.^atriculation class becomes a regtdar institution.The claims 01 the Matriculation examination prevent specialising, and the continuous revision so as to become word-perfect takes all the life and interest out .of maiy- subjects. After nearly thirty years e^erience of teaching in South Africa, I, can recall only two hree boys who have read widely historical, philosophical- or or

"Ihis will be my last Heport from this platform,Ihe new School in which so many of you are interested, and to the building of which so many of you ha,ve contributed rises fast from the soil. ¥e have been prcnlised occupation at the end of June, and expect to open there at the beginning of August. ¥e bid farewell to our mar^r friends in this district with mixed feelings, and we carry a-way many happy memories - but senti ment, while it has its place, cannot conquer hard facts, and the College had no future in this delightful spot. There has been a welcome revival of interest in the College amongst our Old Boys. Slowly this body gains in strength and members of it are rising to positions of responsibility. It is interesting to note that an Old Boy did the quantity-surv^ingwork for our new scheme, and that another was to tender for its erection but obtained another large contract just before tenders were call ed for. With few exceptions the Old Boys are making good. One is filling '{vest Street Mothodist Church every Sunday evening, another won one of the more sou^t after ELsie Ballot Scholarships,another is the headmaster of one of our big native institutions and so on. On the financial side we are getting added help thisyear from an increased Provincial Grant. Parents will recognise onespecially good feature in the new system of allotting grants — the grant now depends partly on the numbers in the school and partly on the qualification of the teachers. We hope, too, that ■other benefits will result from the
