From the Headmaster'sDesk ■ * \ 1 £ Mr O.J. Roberts 1992 will not be a year on which South Africans will look hack with relish. The drought, the recession, ongoing violence,and political stalemate all took their toll. It is obvious that in a world of growing unemployment and dropping standards it is essential that every pupil leave Kearsney having attained his academic potential. There is however far more to it than this. What will he needed in a fast-changing scenario are independent thinkers,mature,responsible young men capable ofgood personal relationships and a great belief in themselves — school leavers with the ability to weigh up the prosand consofasituation and make decisions. We in the College endeavoured to respond to the challenges before us by first and foremost concentra ting on maintaining academics as our top priority. The momentum generated last year was reinforced so tnat 3 out of4 boys said in an internal survey that they found it easy to work at Kearsney and almost all listed academics as their top priority.Support teaching was introduced and welcomed by the pupils who now have a staffmemberon duty in every subject during 1st Prep to help, explain or enrich. Our Leadership Week saw every pupil involved in activities designed to teach them decision-making skills. Closely linked to this wasthe voluntary Outreach programme which enabled many to see things from a new perspective. We sought this year especially to foster tolerance, thoughtfulness, and co-operation within our community. As a Christian school, the ground rules are clearly laid down.We have striven to ensure that every boy is happy in his relationship with God. The most notable features of the year were the successful introduction ofour first Post-Matric group, and the Extended Weekend. 10 of the 12 Post Matrics gained entry into tertiary education with creditsto their names and considerable confidence and maturity.The Extended Weekend when boys are allowed outfrom 5 p.m. on Saturday until 7 p.m. on Sunday has ensured that the Boarding Houses are once again full. Despite the recession we opened the year with the same enrolment as last year, with fewer day boys and more boarders.We still offerfull boardingand many boysdo stay in over weekends to enjoy the activities arranged for them. The pages which follow outline what has been a very busy and successful year. This must rate as one ofour best sporting years with outstanding rugby, cricket, waterpolo,swimming,tennisand athletics results.In all sports the enthusiasm, commitment, and enjoyment were ajoy to behold. You will read ofthe many clubs nnd societies, our music, the tours to all parts of the country, the growth of our Outreach . .. and much more.The enthusiasm 1 appealed for last year was so very evidentamongst boys,staff,parents,the Old Boys, and the Board of Governors. 1 thank them all. With such a team, Kearsney can look forward with confidence to the challenges ahead.
Vale GRAEME SHUKER i-fc A man of many parts and of wide interests, Graeme Shuker had served for twelve years as chairman ofthe Kearsney Board of Governors when he relinquished this appointment at the end of 1992. Graeme matriculated from Kearsney in 1948 and studied agriculture at the University of Natal. After graduating, he continued his studies in the United States, returning in 1957 with a Ph.D from Louisiana State University and a number of special academic awards. He then joined Sir J.L. Hulett and Sons(the company his father had served for many years) and worked as an agronomist in Rhodesia,Swaziland and Natal. He retired as a director of Tongaat-Hulett in 1991. He held many appointments in the SA Sugar Associa tion and in the SA Sugar Millers' Association, including that ofchairman ofthe experimental station and ofthe industrial training centre.On no fewer than three occasions between 1977 and 1989, he led the South African delegation to congresses of the Inter national Society ofSugar Technologists,once in Cuba and twice in Brazil. He has,in addition, worked on a variety of bodies concerned with the development of agriculture in KwaZulu.Aformer vice-chairman ofthe board of Epworth High School, he has also served a term as chairman ofthe Independent Schools'Council ofSouth Africa,and is now the national chairman. Graeme Shuker's contribution to Kearsney over the years has been immense. During his time as chairman of the board, he distinguished himself by his regular and loyal support ofall activities at the school,finding time in a busy schedule to attend a great many functions. He has been at the helm during a crucial period of growth and during that time has provided strong leadership and wise counsel.Heis a man with an unshakeable confidence in thefuture ofKearsney and a tremendous determination that it should continue to make its special contribution to education in South Africa and that it should rise to yet greater heights. In acknowledging Kearsney's debt to him,it is good also to be able to record that he will continue aschairman of the Kearsney Trustees and as a member ofthe board. As chairman of the Estates Committee, he will doubtless make his presence felt for years to come. Graeme and his wife Paddy,who has been a charming, warm and gracious partner in all his activities, have retired to Hathaway Village in West Riding,very close to Kearsney. Here Graeme is already involved in planning a golfcourse(he plays to a 12 handicap)and in the conservation work ofthe local nature reserve.No doubt life in retirement will be just as busy for the Shukers as it was before. We thank them both for their invaluable contribution in the past and we look forward to a long-continuing association in the future. Ave NEVILLE POLKINGHORNE m. I A Kearsney old boy who matriculated in 1957,the new chairman ofthe Board ofGovernors has his rootsdeep in the school's past. His father, Lawrence, was a foundation pupil at Old Kearsney and later served for many yearsasa memberofthe board.Neville's mother, Joyce, is a one-time member of the joint KearsneyEpworth board. Neville himself became a Kearsney governor in 1985, after serving for four years as the President of the Old Boys'Club. He was elected vicechairman of the board in 1989. A former SAAF pilot and a successful sugar farmer from Amatikulu, Neville has, through his leadership, made a significant contribution to the Natal sugar industry. He has presided over a number of working groups investigating various aspects of the industry in the region. He has also taken a great interest in the independent schools, being a member of the board of Highbury and a trustee ofSt Mary's DSG. Neville and his wife, Trish, have four children. Lawrence,the eldest(who,like his father before him, was a prefect in Gillingham) matriculated from Kearsney in 1990. Kathryn is Head of Chapel in her matric year at St Mary's, where her younger sister, Robyn,is in thefourthform.Bruce,the youngest,came to Kearsneyfrom Highbury in 1992and is at present in Eorm 3. Kearsney wishes the new chairman and his wife well in their new office at a significant and exciting time in the history of Kearsney and of education in general.

Headmaster's Address on Speech Day,25 September 1992 Mr Chairman and Mrs Polkinghorne, Reverend and Mrs Irvine, Trustees and Members of the Board of Governors, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to you all. I am delighted to see Mr Howard Timm (Superintendent of Education Management) Mr&Mrs Clarence(Highbury) Mr& Mrs Garrett(Hillcrest High) Mr& Mrs Habberton(Thomas More College) Rev &Mrs Kerton-Johnson(Epworth) Mr&Mrs Sawyer(Hillcrest Primary) Thank you for being with us today. I often wonder to whom I should direct my talk. Tothe younger boys?...blessed are the youngforthey shall inherit our national debt . . . and control our pensions. To the adolescents...that age when boys stop asking questions because they know all the answers. To the parents...like afather whoanswerd the phone to his son's girlfriend and quipped "No, this isn't dreamboat.I'm the supply ship!" I suppose,I'm just talking to people...I like this little girl's version:"People are composed ofboys and girls, also men and women. Boys are not good at all until they grow up and get married. Boysare an awful bother...they wanteverything they can get ... except soap. My ma is a woman and my pa is a man. A woman is a grown up girl with children. Mypa is such a nice man that I think he musthave been a girl when he was a little boy!" Life in South Africa is changing so rapidly that you probably feel like me — completely bewildered, with both feet firmly planted in mid-air. A tidal wave of social and political change is sweeping our land threatening to smash everything in its path. We are preparing our pupils for a modern life characterised by unemployment, divorce, poverty —and dareIsay it —violence and Aids.Wecannot apply the solutions of the past to the problems of today. We are creating a new South Africa; not an extended, largerthan life version ofour presentSouth Africa,but a new South Africa. Unless we understand this, we cannot hope to prepare our pupils for it. Change is inevitable. We can either resent and resist it, or anticipate and prepare for it. We, in the Independent Church Schools, are best placed to inculcate the values that will be essential. As Rev Vivian Harris put it in our Confirmation Service last Sunday,"What South Africa needs is people who are different,who don't dwell on the past,who will be tolerant and co-operative. ...I hate to say it... You have been left a mess but with God as your helper,you will clean it up". One of the key roles of Independent Schools is to produce tomorrow'sleaders.Thekind ofleadership we seek does not offer personal gain and increased privileges but rather responsibility, accountability and respect for others. The week during Trials saw every Eorm disappear to experience leadership activities. This is the forerunner ofa programme designed to give every pupilleadership opportunities and training.To what kind ofleadership do I refer? Our future depends on how we balance self-interest with mutual interest . . . how soon we improve co-operation and reject violence and fear.This quotation from Lao Tsu says it all: "A leader is best. When people are hardly aware of his existence. Not so good when people praise his government. Less good when people stand in fear. Worst when people are contemptuous. Eail to honour people, and they will fail to honour you. But ofa good leader, who speaks little, when his task is accomplished, his work done — The people say, 'We did it ourselves.'" I was moved by one ofthe readings chosen during our leadership week when the Form 5's stayed here and were given opportunities to serve others by helping with maintenance,on the fields, in the laundry,in the kitchen,and even atthesewerage plant.Thisexperience of service and humility is captured in John's gospel, which wasalso quoted byDudley Eorde in hisinspiring speech on 'Leadership' at the H.M.C. "After Jesus had washed their feet, he put his outer garments back on and returned to his place at the table."Doyou understand whatI havejustdoneto you?" he asked."You call me Teacher and Lord, and it is right that you do so,because that is whatI am. I, your Lord and Teacher, have just washed your feet. You, then, should wash one another's feet. I have set an example for you,so that you will dojust what I have done for you.I am telling you the truth: no slave is greater than his master,and no messenger is greater than the one who sent him." South Africa has a need for such leaders...boys who are humble and yet have vision and will lead the way. Ihave been amazed atthe talent in our prefect body who have shown remarkable leadership. Alan Lamplough has excelled as Head Boy... enabling the prefects to fulfil 4of the 5 goals they set themselves. It has been a pleasure working with him and indeed all ofthe matriculants who have set the tone for a very successful year. In reporting on the year,I am not going to give you a detailed breakdown on achievements as these have been communicated to you in our Newsletters. 10
The one essentialfor any leaver to take his place in society is a good academic education. This has remained our top priority. A system of Support Teaching has been introduced with a teacher from each subjectdepartmentbeing availableduring first prep in the evenings to provide help for those who need it. The 1991 Matric results saw 58 boys pass with exemption,with 6'A'aggregates,7'B'aggregates and 36 subject distinctions, and 2 failures. The boys are responding well to the challenges set them with over 80%ofthis year's matric passing with exemption in the Trials. The progress ofevery pupil is monitored through class tutors. Standard and Subject Heads and House masters.Saturday Cycle Tests and regular goal setting have now been accepted with the boysappreciating the rewards of regular, planned studying. Academic assemblies, the 12 Club, and merit and progress certificates have ensured that due recognition is given for academic effort. We continue to have quarterly staffseminars and our teachers regularly attend in-service courses to keep up to date in their teaching approaches. We have 800 hoursofcomputeraided instruction availablefor every pupil in Maths and English with every boy spending at least 1 and a half hours per week working at his own pace. The need to shift from teacher-dependent to teacher-guided approaches is foremost in our minds. Weseek to produce flexible,thinking problem-solvers, but are somewhat hampered by the restrictions im posed byanexam system still primarily based on stored knowledge and rote learning. The introduction of Design and Technology to replace Woodwoilr in Forms 1 and 2 is in the planning stage. This innovative problem-solving, creative thinking approach, in which a scholar is given a task to design,plan,make,and evaluate his own solution, will be an exciting addition to our curriculum. The Extended Weekend when boys are allowed out from 5 p.m.Saturday until 7p.m.Sunday has ensured that our boarding houses are once again full. Despite the activities arranged more boys than anticipated did sleep out. Now that the novelty has worn off,I would emphasise that it is an option and parents can insist on their sons staying in more often. I will not allow the erosion of the two closed weekends a term. We are adapting to modern trends. Remember the dinosaur which failed to do so and became extinct. Our small Post Matric class has enabled 12young men to get admission to tertiary institutions. Welearnt that they needed to be kept more busy and have offered a fuller programme.Not only do we offer UNISA but Technikon and C.I.S. courses.They have added a new dimension to the school and I thank them for making this first year a success. I anticipate more schools offering such a year to meet a growing need. The realisation that our responsibilities to society extend beyond our boundaries has led to the appointment of a Community Officer, to develop and co-ordinate our Outreach programme. Tolerance and understanding come through aware ness. Trips were organised to schools for the handicapped as well as to schools in poor areas.Pupils from these communities wereinvited here to interactin song,discussion,or play. We started an adult literacy class for our own employees. Our pupils joined the SMILE programme as tutors for the upgrading of English forZuluschoolchildren.Ourfacilities —fields, computers, science labs — were made available to teachers and pupils from the Valley. Tentative steps were taken to share management expertise and problems with our neighbouring headmasters. The underlyingaim isfor ourboysto take an interestand be involved in community work.This was exemplified by the entire school taking part in a"hunger lunch".Our Outreach is in its infancy but already many boys have accepted the challenge to become partofthe solution to our country's problems. We waited a year for our new Chaplain,Rev Peter Oundwell. He has ensured that Christian values continue to permeate all we think and do. | I The wait was well worth it. He has become involved in all aspects ofschool life. A growing number ofparents havejoined usfor worship on Sunday evenings.There is a strong body ofChristian leaders in the school with some 70 boys belonging to the S.C.A. The Scripture Union Mission was well received and affirmed us spiritually. Over 40 boys were confirmed last Sunday. Music is alive and well.Ourconcertbandisin great demand. Some60boys are learning to play instruments.One of our lads plays for the Natal Youth Orchestra. Our Choir combined with St Mary's to sing an Easter Cantata beautifully.This year's musical'Christian'was thoroughly enjoyed by all—I think the presence ofthe St Mary's girls had a lot to do with this! What a superb sporting year we have had. The f commitment, involvement and spirit of boys and staff continue to amaze me. Every boy, no matter how talented, has been given coaching and the chance to represent his school. In rugby wefielded 18sides.The 1stXVwon 14oftheir 17 games and played magnificent running rugby with memorable wins over Hilton, Michaelhouse,and that marvellous game against St Andrews. Three of our cricket sides are unbeaten and we have won 64 of the 103 games played with 11 drawn. Our young 1st XI is showing great promise. Our tennis has reached new heights winning both the Durban and the Pietermaritzburg leagues with 5 boys selected for Natal. Our waterpolo team must be close to the strongest in 11
the country whilst our swimmers and athletes more than hold their own in the'A'Leagues. Add to this successful Hockey,volleyball,squash and basketball seasons. Looking back on the year I realise just what an active one it has been for us all. The successes we have achieved in and out of the classroom are due almost entirely to the staff. I once heard the qualities of the perfect teacher described as: the education of a pro fessor the humility ofa padre the hope ofan optimist the wisdom ofa serpent harmlessness ofa dove and the persistence of the devil the patience ofJob the ability ofa financier the adaptability ofachame leon the courage ofa hero the grace of God the humour of Bill Cosby! No individual could have all these qualities but we will continue to strive for them. 1thank all ofthem — academic,administrative and others — for all their dedicated hard work. There are many people I would like to thank — the boysfor responding to the challenges put to them, the parents for their encouragement and involvement, the Parents Society for bringing us together, the Old Boysfor their loyaltyand enthusiasticsupport, the Board for their involvement, support and hard work. I wish to add Anne and my personal thanks to Graeme and Paddy Shuker. How fortunate Kearsney has been to have had a Chairman ofsuch insight,charm and wisdom. Luckily, his expertise will not be lost to us,as he is to remain a member of the Board and a Trustee of the school. Our new Chairman, as you all know, is Mr Neville Polkinghorne whose family have played such key roles in the history of Kearsney. Anne and I look forward to continue working with him and Trish. A special word of thanks to my wife and family. Some people are lucky.I got them.Others are unlucky.They got me. Finally, let's not worry about the future but rather do something about it. I would like to quotefrom an essay written by one ofour matriculants,Musa Dlamini.He himself starts with a quotation: "In every winter's heartthere is a quiveringspring and behind the veil of each night there is a smiling dawn". He goes on to write: "The time for new beginnings has arrived. The time for war and struggle is over It is time for peace... I am privileged. I bought a blanket to cover me during the long night, but now it is time to share my blanket with you my brother For the dawn is coming" The challenge is before us — we must provide an environment to prepare for that dawn in body, mind and soul.
School's Address by Guest of Honour,The Rev George Irvine,on Speech Day 25 September 1992 Members of the Board of Governors, Headmaster, members ofstaff, Kearsneyans,parents, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,I want to thank you for the privilege of addressing you on this your Annual Speech Day.I enjoyed the story ofan occasion such as this when a young woman sitting in thefrontofthe hall gotuptoleave asthe very distinguished speaker droned on endlessly. Asshe walked noisily down the aisle,the speaker stopped and asked,"Madam,where are you going?" The young woman turned and replied,"I am goingto get my hair cut.""Whydidn't you havea hair cut before youcame?"asked the speaker."Myhair was shorter then,"replied the young woman.Ipromise you thatI will be brieftoday.Noneofyou will need haircuts by the time you leave the hall. I have called whatI would share with you,"Letting go ofFear" Ibegin by readingastoryofCarlosG.Valles.Valles is a Spanish Jesuit who has worked in India for 40 years. Hehasjust written abookonfearand the story Iread is in the foreword ofthe book. "Once I saw it. On a lonely road in the warm Indian countryside between fields and crops and trees, far from any vestige of human habitation. I was pedalling gently on my bicycle — individual excur sion on thefreedom oftwo wheels without gasoline —feeling the hotairon myface,lookingaround as though in charge ofthe landscape,and letting my eyes rest on the green blessing that the yearly monsoon had brought on the tired earth. Not a person in sight. Only the birds and the squirrels and the bees.I moved on slowly,taking it all in. A leisurely ride on nature'sowngrounds.Only aftera good while I noticed a subtle change. A strange stillness had invaded the scene. I sensed danger in the wind. I stopped the bicycle and watched intently. Then suddenly I saw it. Something stood up in the low grass. A cobra, half-coiled, half-erect, with its hood spread out in majesty and its tongue flickering danger in the air. I followed its gaze, fixed on the branch of a bush slightly ahead and above. On the branch was a little bird paralysed with fear.I had heard that snakes do that to birds. Now I wasseeing it. The bird had wings,but could not fly. It had a voice, but could not sing. It was frozen,stiff, mesmerised. The snake knew its own power and had cast its spell. The prey would not escape,though it had the whole sky for its range. Fear held the bird. Ajump from the grass,a sting from the deadly fang,and the lord ofthe air would fall under the earthbound enemy. I stirred the breeze with my presence. The snake turned swiftly and looked angrily at me. I waved my arms and shouted human sounds. The cobra lowered itself reluctantly to the ground. There it stood still for a moment. Then it scurried away into the grass. A sense of reliefswept through the landscape. The bush came alive again. The bird woke from its spell of death. It found its wings. And it flew." I am deeply hoping that this is what I can do in my addressto you—stir the breezeso that you mayfly and sing. Fear is an epidemic today,don't you agree?Butfear is not an emotion that any ofus will very easily own.So manytimes we have heard the words,"Comeon,don't bescared,don't beascaredy cat,man,"that we getthe message it really isn'tokayto bescared!Wepushdown our fears and they reappear dressed up as anger or sometimes as prolonged depression. A young nephew of mine was known at school as someone with whom you did not tussle. YetI knew him well.He had shared with me often.Iknew how scared hefelt,buthe pushed down his fear and up came his fists. In some ways he was the angriest boy in the school because he was the mostscared.I well remember coping with my own fear in this way. Yes, I am more sophisticated than my nephew.Fora start,I am much older.Isubmerged my fearand used mytongue as he used his fists! Fear is not an emotion wecan allow ourselvesto live with forlong. But anger also gets tired and ifnot dealt with it comes out as depression. It is a well known fact that undealt with angerdoesconvertto depression.Fear masquerad ing as anger or depression is part and parcel of the South African scene right now. We find ourselves frightened for South Africa, for the future of South Africa, so we gravitate between deep anger and crippling depression. Such anger and depression will ultimately destroy us.How we need someoneto stir the breeze,for the cobra offear will keep uslocked in —we will have wingsbut we will be unabletofly,we will have a voice but will be unable to sing. Who,then,is to stir the breeze? If I were preaching now,which I am not,I would ask you to see a group of very frightened men locked in a room!They were frightened, were these men,because their leader had been taken in the night and executed. They wondered who was to be next. Somethingstirred the breeze forthem.It wascalled the wind ofGod's Spirit.Theyfound their wingsand could fly. They found their voice and could sing. There are people all over South Africa experiencing the same stirring ofthe breeze. Let me tell you how to recognise them,for they will have three marksaboutthem.These marksI takefrom Stephen Covey's excellent little book, "The Seven Habits of Effective People". First,people for whom the breeze has been stirred are people who have stopped being reactive and have become pro-active. They are people who refuse to be acted upon.They are people who choose to act. Years ago now, I read a book by Victor Frankel,"Man's Search for Meaning", but I found his introduction more helpfulthan the actualbook,forin it hetold ofhis experience in a concentration camp. Victor Frankel was a psychiatrist and a Jew. His parents,his brother and wife died in the campsor were sent to the gas ovens. Except for his sister, his whole family perished. Frankel himself suffered torture and innumerable indignities, never knowing from one momentto the next whether his path would lead to the 13
gas ovens.Oneday,naked and alonein asmallroom he began to beawareofwhathe later called"the lastofthe humanfreedoms"which the Naziscould nottakeaway from him. They could control his whole environment, they could do what they wanted to his body,but there was one freedom left intact. He could decide within himself how all of this was going to affect him.So he became pro-active, he decided what feelings he was going to have, what response he was going to make. "To be pro-active then means that between stimulus and response lies thefreedom to choose what we are to think,orfeel ordo"(Stephen Covey,"Seven Habitsof Effective People".) People for whom the breeze has been stirred will choose their response. South Africa makes me afraid? Not true. I choose to be afraid. People who have had the breeze stirred will allow no one toremovefrom them thefreedom ofchoosing their own responses,and thusthey will live as victorsand not victims. Second, people for whom the breeze has been stirred live with a decreasing circle ofconcern and a growing circle of influence. You ask anyone,"What are you worried about?"and they will often talk on and on and on as they list their worries and their concerns. Ask them whatthey can doto change things and you will be offered acucumbersandwich and perhapsacup oftea! We as a nation have been beaten by an oppressive government, beaten into becoming spineless people who feel we can do nothing. And that's the kind of people governments like to produce. I am not con vinced thata new governmentin South Africa will want anything different. Propaganda, thought control and the relentless march towards unity are many govern ments'wayoftelling their populace,"Weknow better, leave it to us".Whateverour new constitution willlook like, I would plead that the people be allowed to have influence.I would plead that atthe veryleast,they have the power of recall. Don Caldwell in his book,"No more Heroes now",speaks eloquently of this. When Archie Simonson, a State Judge in Maddison, Wisconsin,madean outrageousruling in a rape case he didn't remain State Judge for very long. Simonson suggested that the 16-year old victim had been dressed in such a way thatshe had invited sexual assault,and he placed the 15-year old youth on probation. The irate Wisconsin citizens, entitled by law to recall all elected state officials, successfully petitioned for a snap election and voted Simonson out of his job less than four months after the rape ruling. Caldwell continues, "The procedure that gives voters this power — the recall — involves a petition drive by a special election ...The idea is that when government officials start to abuse their power, voters shouldn't have to suffer in silence untilthe nextelection.In recent years American voters have recalled various state and local officials for a wide range ofreasons". Politicians and state officials must be accountable to the citizens of the country where they rule. I know what I have said is debatable But I also know that I am sick to death of politicians who will not trust the wishes of ordinary people. We have a tradition in this country ofno head ever rolling for what is done.I am hoping that you,the students of this college, have received from your education here a sense,adeep sense that youcan have influence.Adeep sense that your concerns are a lot less than your influence.Iam hoping that whatyou havereceived here has stirred the breeze for you and that you will leave this college knowing that you have found your wings and knowingthat you havefound your voice.It will not be easy,for we have been ruled forsolong now bythose who have told us we cannot fly or sing without permission. Let us be sure thata new governmentdoes not live by the same oppressive rules. Third,people who have experienced the stirring ofthe breeze, who have found their wings to fly, who have found their voice to sing,live byatruth that mayatfirst sound contradictory.Here is the truth.Wemustalways begin at the end and not at the beginning. Architects, engineersand buildersknow this truth.Isanyone going to begin building a house without a plan? Jesus made the same point when He asked His listeners, "Can anyone build a tower without first sitting down and counting the cost?" We need a sense of where we are going before we can start out. Stephen Covey tells of counselling a man in depression. The man said to Covey,"I've reached the top ofthe ladder butIfear the ladder has been up against the wrong wall." He had started out without knowing what the end should be. Whatdo we mean by a free,democratic South Africa? Do we know the end to which we refer? If we do not know the end,how can we begin? It is my prayer that the end for all of us may be the end described by the prophets and by Jesus as the Kingdom of God,where Justice, truth, righteousness and love will rule. Do I hear you say,"Don't be unrealistic?" I am not being unrealistic. This is what ordinary people want. I have never known any ordinary people who want war, violence,hungeror oppression.Theordinary people in this land know deeply within themselves what the end should be.This is why I plead for politicians to get off our backs and start doing what we want them to do. Bring the violence to an end,startjustice flowing like a stream,set people free from the bondage ofeconomic deprivation. Letting go offear. Who will stir the breeze?I conclude by telling you that faith hassomethingto do with this.Faith in God who is stronger than evil. It is in His name that we can be pro-active, influential and have a sure sense of where we should be going. I close by saying to you,don't let anyone or anything make you lose your wingsor your voice.The new South Africa will only happen if ordinary people find their wings and fly, if ordinary people find their voice and sing. "God bless South Africa Guide her rulers Guard her people Give her peace." 14
HeadBoy*s Speechfor Sixth Form Prizegiving 1992 The Rev Irvine, Honoured Guests,Mr Polkinghorne, Mr Roberts, Ladies and Gentlemen, I feel very privileged to stand before you on this most important day in the school's calendar. My first task is to thank Mrs Irvine for so kindly agreeing to give outthe prizestoday,and to present her with a gift in appreciation. I would also like to thank the Rev Irvine for his most interesting and thoughtprovoking speech today. His words were particularly relevant to those of us who are about to leave school. Rev Irvine,thank you very much indeed.Please accept this gift as a token of our gratitude. I believe that 1992 has been a very successful year for the school. You have already heard the sporting, cultural and academic achievements ofthe year,which have been very good. More important to me is that the old Kearsney determination and spirit, in either winning or losing situations, remain as strong as ever, and that the boys' all-round commitment to a wide range ofactivities is on the increase. Ballroom dancing is thriving again this year, with a little help from our female neighbours. The school and house plays were well supported. Every boy in the school belongs to at least two clubsor societies which meetregularly.These things are, in my opinion, more important than an analysis ofgames won and games lost. 1992has been a year ofchange at Kearsney.Ithink that this is a very healthy sign,because in the modern world any school that stands still, goes backwards. It is vital that we change with the times and be prepared to meet the future head-on. However,Iam delighted to say thatthe basic principles of Kearsney life have remained unchanged. Our traditional values such as honesty, respect, discipline and Christianity, never need to be modernized or revised to suit the market.They have notchanged since I92I, and they never will. They are what makes Kearsney Kearsney,other things are onlyoftemporary and passing importance. In a time of growth and change we must remember with pride the generations which went before us. They are part of Kearsney as much as we are, and if we apologise for them or look down on them because some of their methods now seem old-fashioned, then we look down on ourselves, and on every future generation ofKearsney boy. Aswe prepare to face thefuture asaschool,let us keep our roots firmly anchored in the fine traditions and values ofthe past. Alan Lamplough Head Boy I would like to thank the 6th Form and the prefectsfor their co-operation and friendship this year,and for the excellent example they have set while leading the school.To next year's 6th Form — good luck!I know that you will guard the good name of the school and add to its reputation. Today is a particularly meaningful day for those ofus who are in 6th Form,because it hasforced many ofus to realize that ourschool careers are nearly over.In the past 4 or 5 years Kearsney College has moulded our personalities and made us the people we are. As we stand atthe end ofourtime here we would like to thank everyone who has made our Kearsney experience so worthwhile. The staff,who know us each by name and have guided us wisely in the classroom,on the sportsfields and,in fact, in every area ofschool life. The Headmaster,whose vision for the school will take Kearsney to greater and greater heights. The matrons and sanatorium sisters for their sympathy,care,and reparil gel! Onlooking back,I think,even the kitchen staffdeserve ourthanks.Although attimes we have accused them of some most dreadful things, the fact that we have all survived to today reveals that most ofour gripes were exaggerated to say the least. I don't know who to thank for the touch rugby,for the long hoursspentover brews discussingsportand other topics of interest to adolescent males. For the friend ships we've made,or the confidence we've gained.For the joy we have experienced at Kearsney College. All Ican really say is"Thank you Kearsney,and thank God for Kearsney."
