There were several new faces on the Kearsney staff at the beginning of 2010 Glenda Pitcher; Vaughan Carlisle and John Robinson arrived to head the Art,English and Geography departments respectively. RevTeboho Erasmus was inducted as College Chaplain,Gillingham old boy, Matthew Savllle,joined the English department,Shannon Burgess was appointed as secretary to the Mathematics department and Sister Sally van der Merwe assumed duties in the sanatorium. We also welcomed backVickey Bisson-Dayal to the staff of Kit & Clothing and Ram Ramsunderjoined her there as a part time assistant towards the end ofthe year In the Bursar's department,Rose Armstrong,emigrated to England at the end ofthe third term and was replaced by AnnetteThompson. Marketing Assistant,Zithobile Ntshangase moved on to new pastures and Mpume Mbanjwa arrived to take her place. Atthe end ofthe year several long-serving friends and colleagues retired: Sister Dot Bissell, after9 years'dedicated service in the sanatorium,Graham Shone,after 22 years'loyal service in the English Department,and the legendary Keith Decker after 30 years ofdevoted service in a bewildering number of areas. Sadly,2010 saw the passing offormer catering manager Ron Blackboard,after a long Illness. On a happier note,two engagements were announced: Francois Lubbe to Sherese Groenewald and Gareth Moerdyk to Robin Palmer The stork was also kept busy delivering Luke Morgan (December 2009),Neha Lankesar and Sven Krtiger- it must be something in the water VALETE GRAHAM SHONE Graham's first foray into Kearsney territory was in 1971 when,in his teaching diploma year he spent 6 weeks here on a teaching prac which included teaching David Graves who was in his Matric year Graham was accommodated in Haley House where jan Storm was housemaster and remembers appleple-ing the prefects' beds only to meet with retaliation the following night. He found his bedstead on the roof, butthe mattress was lost in the valley. He works systematically and has the patience to ensure his pupils do the same Graham was fortunate to meet and work with four Kearsney headmasters:j Hopkins,C Sllcock,O Roberts and E van den Aardweg as he has taught here since 1988. He was deputy housemaster in Finningley for6 years and has taught English throughout his Kearsney career With his two sons:Thomas and James and his wife Elsbeth, Graham settled well. It soon became apparent that his strength lay in nurturing the slow learners to pass Matric, probably because he himself works systematically and has the patience to ensure his pupils do likewise. The boys become part ofan exclusive Shone set and many Kearsney boys have enjoyed hospitality in and from the Shone household. The fact that Elsbeth is a graduate ofa fine cookery school has ensured the deliciousness ofsuch hospitality. Before the advent ofthe Inclusion department, Graham offered extra English coaching after school hours and has had considerable success with encouraging young boys to read. Graham was active in extra mural activities: with Rod deVilliers he ran the Mountain club where he enjoyed a number of hikes and served as head of Catering. He oversaw a Gardening club which was responsible for tagging a number of trees on the campus and taught senior pupils to drive during the years when sponsors provided a car for this purpose. For years Graham coached and managed the B Swimming team,Water Polo,Soccer and Hockey. Graham will be remembered by many for his hospitality and his generosity;a number of us have benefitted from good wine,good food and healthy plants donated to our gardens. We wish him well in his retirement. 6 -

RESPECT FORA KEARSNEY LEGEND Keith Decker retired from Kearsney at the end of2010,after 3 I years of dedicated service to the college. During his years at Kearsney, Keith was actively involved in a wide range of activities,the most important of which was his masterful teaching of Mathematics. Early on In his Kearsney career he was briefly Kearsney's first Director ofComputer Studies. He taught a handful of boys computer skills in what was then the small Biology laboratory. ■ ■ Keith was very active as a sports coach. For? years he,together with Fred Cocks, coached the first Rugby squad. His summer sport wasWater Polo. He was first team coach for6 years, thereafter being chiefly Involved with the U16 squad. On the cultural side Keith took an active interest in the Choir He and his wife Christine went on 7 overseas Choir tours,giving Angela Stevens Invaluable support. In 1983 Keith was appointed Senior Deputy Headmaster a role he filled with distinction. In 1999,however The boys have seen in him unshakable integrity and a genuine concern for their welfare he voluntarily relinquished his largely administrative position in order to spend more time on his first love as a teacher. He was head ofa very successful Maths department for a number of years. During his last few years at Kearsney Keith was Master in Charge ofAcademics. In that position he strove valiantly to maintain Kearsney's proud academic tradition. He was very sensitive about any encroachment on academic time. Among his duties was the management of all examinations,which he carried out with his trademark quiet efficiency. But these details do not tell the full story of Keith Decker's success as a schoolmaster This gentle giant(not so gentle if pushed too farl) has a special way with boys. They have seen in him unshakable integrity, dedication to duty, compassion,and a genuine concern for their welfare. Only Keith will know the number of extra-curricular hours he spent giving boys extra help in - especially during examination sessions. It never crossed his mind to charge a cent for these extra lessons. I well remember an occasion when the boys of Kearsney demonstrated their love and respect for Keith. On his 50th birthday,in 1997, he had a party for staff and friends in the Greyhound. The boys somehow got wind ofthis event and after supper the entire school assembled outside and gave stirring renditions of'Shosoloza'and 'Happy Birthday'. There were tears in many eyes that evening. P-H < H CO Keith Decker has a great love for Kearsney and gave his full support to all the College's activities. He was to be seen at all sporting and other events,standing unobtrusively in the background and giving quiet words of encouragementto the boys involved. Keith Decker is unique in the extent to which he has earned the love,respect and admiration ofgenerations of boys of the College. You can retire with pride, Keith. You are indeed a Kearsney legend. iStaff Y \ t Lo'^g'^ewing staff: Fifteen years and more.Rod de Villiers, Ant V7illows, Dave Goldhawk,John Drew,Keith decker, Rob Candotti, Paula Isaacs, Barend Steyn, Fred Cocks,Jerry Ndaba,Andre van Zyl, Kevin smith,Dave graves, Ronnie Wallace, Graham Shone - 7

We had a number of boys competing atWorld Championship events overseas and of course the Choir did us proud once We need to assure everyone including the class of2010 that we will all work hard to ensure that Kearsney will be here for our great,great,great,great,great grandchildren again by winning a gold medal at the World Choir Games in China. A little known gem in the College is the Academic Support Unit where boys with various barriers to learning are supported and assisted to overcome those obstacles. We are extremely proud ofthe achievements ofthese boys and the staff who assist them. 2010 was a year of management restructuring,completed after widespread consultation and feedback from the IQAA evaluation ofthe College In March. Both the academic and sporting divisions ofthe College have been restructured to cope with the demands ofour current situation. Accommodation and the living space of both boys and staff have received a major boost this year with the commencement ofan upgrading programme which is to be rolled out over the nextfew years. Pembroke is in the process of being totally refurbished and much effort has gone into modernising and increasing staff housing on the campus. We continue to work on improving and consolidating the two major festivals: the Mercury Upbeat Festival and the Biythedale Coastal Resorts Easter Rugby Festival, both of which are powerful Indicators ofthe balanced education we offer at Kearsney Good progress has been recorded with the introduction ofthe code of honour administered by the Honour Gouncll which Is chaired by the Head or Deputy Head prefect. Added to this has been a freshening up ofthe wellness and Life Orientation programmes. Within the latter we have Incorporated a 3 day ethics course for all Grade I I boys. Kearsney will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary in 201 1 and our planning has reached an advanced stage. Please keep an eye outto see where you can join us in the celebrations. In conclusion I would like to pay tribute to the Matrics. Thank you to the prefects,ably led by KG and Warren who are 2ofthe finest young men one could hope to meet. The captains of all sports and of all teams are acknowledged for the effort they put into leading their sides. Those boys who took leadership positions in the Choin Orchestra and in the myriad clubs and societies we run,we appreciate what you have done. Then there are the boys who slave away behind the scenes or on the sports fields In a supportive capacity,devoting hours oftheir time to assist the College In one or other role and there are many boys in this category,thank you. The vast body of boys who are not afforded the opportunity to lead or occupy high profile positions but whom nevertheless represented the College with pride and passion,we salute you-you are the backbone of Kearsney. Trees known as Coast Redwoods, found In California are the tallest living things on the planet and amongst the oldest as well-trees up to 1 16 meters high and literally thousands of years old. In a recent publication ofthe National GeographicTraveller Magazine, correspondent Richard Preston writes of his experience on finding one ofthe tallest and oldest Redwoods known as Artemis In Prairie Creek State Park. I quote Preston: "I spotted Artemis, visibly bigger and older than its neighbours, with whitishgrey bark (like people,redwoods go grey with age). A stream ran down into a hole in the base ofthe tree and disappeared underground. Wondering where the stream went I squirmed into the hole and found myselfin a cave, filled with a shining pool ofwater. The . cave was alive. Artemis was already a giant tree when the Vikings discovered Iceland and it will likely outlive my great great,great,great,great grandchildren." Kearsney may well not be the oldest Redwood around In terms ofschools, nor the tallest, northe bulkiest nor the heaviest but like Artemis,there Is a pool ofwater under Its trunk,not often seen or appreciated,that speaks of l ife, camaraderie,values, passion,service to others,tenacity,a concern for the underdog and a determination that when we slip and fall, we are prepared to take It on the chin and stand up to fight another day. We need to assure everyone Including the class of2010 that we will al l work hard to ensure that Kearsney,like Artemis,will be here for our great,great,great,great,great grandchildren. Thank you and God bless you. Vaji d&n Aa)-duje.^ Page Sponsored by;The Lundall Family - 10 -

When I began to prepare this address I realised that this will be my last official public function as Chairman ofthe Kearsney Board,and it is therefore an appropriate time to reflect on what I have learnt I realised when I began to prepare this address that this will be my last official public function as Chairman ofthe Kearsney Board,and it is therefore an appropriate time to reflect on what I have learnt while presiding over this highly competent and committed Board. But before doing this, I would l ike to pick out an example of why establishments like Kearsney are special. We heard today that Keith Decker will be retiring in December and in this disposable world in which we live here is a teacher that has taughttwo generations of Kearsney boys. I was privileged to have been here when Decks arrived in 1980 and I have a son who is also a beneficiary of having been taught by this educational giant. Keith, I salute you and all those others like you who give meaning to the words humility, commitment,loyalty and outstanding service. I am in no doubtthat my involvement on the Kearsney Board has been an education for me (it seems schools never stop teaching those who get involved) and I would like to borrow from an analogy in the Headmaster's new boy speech in trying to explain how I see our school system working. Elw/yn describes the experience ofa ship leaving the harbour as being akin to a new boy starting his life at Kearsney. I am going to extend the shipping theme to ask you to imagine that a boy's career at Kearsney can be described as a journey on a cruise ship:there are possibly some boys for which this analogy may be a little too close to the truth. We have a company that owns the ship and this company has a board of directors that sits on dry land making strategic decisions and endeavouring to ensure the financial viability ofthe company. We have a ship's captain and crew who have to make sure the ship sails safely from A to B and at the same time try and make the journey an enjoyable one. finds a few parents hanging on to the side ofthe ship not wanting to let go; some ofthe passengers start feeling sea sick and believe they wil l never be equipped for life at sea so phone their parents wanting to jump off;there are some helicopters flying overhead which belong to other parents just checking that things are okay;the sea starts to get a bit rough with some unanticipated large swells. Meanwhile,one ofthe competitor ships has avoided the heavy swells and the passengers and their parents start comparing notes via cell phone and helicopter reconnaissance. Our captain is clearly an idiot so the board,sitting miles away,is After all who wants to pay for a cruise but have a miserable voyage? Our school would not exist without involved parents and passionate boys Then we have the passengers who are outto enjoy the cruise and participate In the various activities that wil l make it a memorable journey. In Kearsney's case we have about 600 ofthem. We also have previous passengers,some ofwho took the same route but in the days of sai l ing ships and without GPS navigation,and for them keelhauling and flogging errant passengers should still be allowed. We have the passengers' parents who are paying for the trip,and we have other competitive shipping companies which offer the same cruise package. So this is the interesting mix of players In our story. Let's set sail. The passengers board the ship with a mixture ofexcitement and nervousness and most oftheir parents stand on the wharf resigned to l imited contact while their sons are at sea. The captain and crew determine a course, based on previous experience and anticipated weather conditions,and head out ofthe harbour It is not long after SS Kearsney hits the open sea that problems start to appear:the crew told to intervene and sort it out. Before the board can respond,the swells die down butthe route turns nasty and heavy waves start pounding the competition. Our captain is a genius! just then the company's finance director informs the captain that some passengers have not paid their fare and suggests they should be thrown overboard. This is a tough call forthe captain so he asks the governors what they think. Meanwhile the voyage Is turning outto be a life-changing experience for most ofthe passengers who have committed themselves to making sure they get as much out ofthe cruise as they can... I could go on but hopefully you are getting the picture. I have learnt that conditions at sea are never as smooth as the captain and crew might want you to believe and equally that they are never as extreme as the passengers would like those at home to believe.

H O Ph PP Ph CO < eti I—( < p: u In talking to other ships' boards,other captains and other crew members there is a common theme to the source of most problems: most will have you believe that concerns are either trivial or a result of helicopter parenting,that schools would be idyllic without interfering parents. There is an element oftruth to this but I have a warning for all of us in the schooling system, and here I am going to borrow from those great musical philosophers,The Pussycat Dolls,who so wisely sang:"be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it". "Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it" Our schools would not exist, nor could they maintain their standards,without involved parents and passionate boys. Coupled with high quality teachers and supportive old boys and you have the recipe for a fantastic educational voyage. The key is getting the mix ofthese ingredients in the right proportions,and that ladies and gentleman,is a large part ofthe job ofa school governing board. Thank you all for the opportunity I have had to gain an understanding ofthe need for this balance. Po!l('i h "o m I The Speech Day Prize Winners 12 -

We are blessed by being in each other's presence, unified by the unique greyhound that sits proudly on our chests Boys,today we are blessed by being in each other's presence,unified by the unique greyhound that sits proudly on our chests. Before we became Kearsney boys,we were merely individuals among other individuals. Most of us were unaccustomed to an environment where camaraderie and bonds of brotherhood existed, buttoday we are products ofthese under-rated qualities that makes us a family of620 boys, all striving to uphold the reputation established by those who came before us. It feels l ike just yesterday,when I was uncertain of which institution would best nurture my groxArth from a young boy to respectable gentleman. The advice and guidance given by my brother -a Kearsney old boy-made it seem as if this environment was one established on foundations of perfection. I was startled at how an institution could inspire such devotion and loyalty in a young man. As I entered the gates of Kearsney and was driven down the picturesque Founders Avenue for the very first time I felt doubt fill my heart. My faith was only restored when I was welcomed into a family of boys. Today,this place represents the very definition ofa 'rainbow nation'. A place where timeless values are instilled and the bonds ofcamaraderie overshadowed all differences of race,age and creed. Ufe challenges us with decisions that will decision, brothers,has been to attend Kearsney. Now we appreciate this way of l ife. We have been governed by timehonoured traditions,learnt the significance ofself-pride and we have witnessed the power ofa passionate approach. Ourtriumph on DHS's Founder's Day and the exceptional achievements ofthe Choir in China are examples ofour X-factor It is this that distinguishes our uniqueness and our ability to shine. The boys ofthis institution feed off each other's energy,contributing to the spirit of'ubuntu'which is so strong a part ofthe way of l ife at Kearsney. This word is appropriate for an occasion All good stories have a final chapter It is never easy to let go ofsonnething which you hold dear and to embrace the uncertainty ofchange stories;chicken mayonnaise and samoosaThursday; May the definition ofa true Kearsney boy remain one who is ofsound moral principles, integrity and honour and may we continue to uphold the Christian values that guide us spiritually. I stand before you today with no regret and filled with contentment. I beseech you never to undermine the opportunities given to you. It is necessary to thank all those responsible for our presence here today...THANK YOU. It is a privilege which presents itself hand-in-hand with the concept of seizing the day. Matrics,soon we wil l depart. We will leave with the memories we have made. I wonder:who will replace the spontaneous welcoming personality of Siya'Khanda' Hadebe;Mr Moodley's Tuesday night such as this; a day when we honour the accomplishments ofour brothers. We are all responsible for each other's growth. The inspiration which we ignite through our many relationships enhances personal progression in others and we are co-operatively responsible for the deserved accolades ofthe boys receiving awards today. ■IZANDLA SEYA GIZANA' - a hand washes another. scrambling for cheese 'zarms' on Friday; sport; exeats; grooving Saturdays and darkie Sundays.

Your composed nature and worthy advice helped me battle through many difficult experiences. I will miss your frequent and unmelodic singing that pierced the walls each morning. Thank you. All good stories have a final chapter It,is never easy to let go of something which you hold dear and to embrace uncertainty of change. Everyone We leave behind will be missed.

The prefect body revisited the concept of,and created,the Honour Code The prefect body revisited the concept of,and created,the Honour Code, It is intended to ensure that Kearsney boys are upright,sincere,ofsound moral principles and have a keen sense of ethical conduct. The boys continuously strive to Internalise these ideals and understand that these qualities have the potential to elevate the College's excluslveness and reputation and so the Code is for the boys, by the boys. The initiative will ensure that Kearsney remains a sanctuary of happiness and friendship. Our goal of creating a stable and happy environment was attained The year was successful,eventful and memorable due to the Involvement,attitude and leadership ofthe Matric group. Though a headstrong and dedicated class of Matlcs, our goal of creating a stable and happy environment was attained.

Our core responsibility is to represent the views ofthe boys and to champion these before the school management The Council had a tough task improving upon the previous Council's developments but I am proud to say that,with the help of Barend Steyn, It was a successful year Our core responsibility is to represent the views ofthe boys and to champion these before the school management and this year we found many of these challenges focused upon the dining halls. The newly founded food committee were backed In their concerns by both the Council and Myles Delport,who leads the committee. I believe that the Honour Code and Honour Council have become the chiefsuccess of student focused management at Kearsney and I see Its relevance In fostering honesty and integrity in the boys growing in years to come. I would just like to thank the council for their support and hard work during the year as well as thanking the boys ofthe College for giving us the opportunity to representthem. H-l CARPE DIEM!

The value and amazing opportunities brought to Kearsney through our special relationships with our funding partners brings a much unique dimension to Kearsney Oursincere thanks go to Kearsney's new and on-going loyal partners for their loyalty and support during a particularly tough economic period. Support is a great source ofencouragement and is a testimony to the relevance of Kearsney's vision which is'to contribute to our country by providing highly skilled, healthy,ethical and capable citizens who are able to contribute to a balanced and safe society and a growing economy' In 2010 our supporters were active in the following: • Educating 55 students who received externally funded bursaries and scholarships; • The Optima and Epoch Trusts support continues to expands Mathematics excellence at Kearsney; • Support for much needed renovations ofthe Kearsney Chapel has increased the space to comfortably accommodate all boys and teachers at Chapel; • Kearsney Old Boys collectively and at a branch level were involved in special projects demonstrating;leadership as well as faith and thanks for their grounding at Kearsney; • Corporate sponsorship of R2,2 million made it possible to present three festivals bringing the best talent to the province and Kearsney. Support covered costs with carry overfunds for the next festivals (namely the KearsneyTennis Festival in February,Easter Rugby festival,and the Upbeat Festival in August). PARTNERS INACTION The gift of excellence "The more you read,the more things you will know. The more things you learn,the more places you'll go." Dr Seuss -1 can read with my eyes shut. There is overwhelming evidence that our children are not reading enough. Why is that? Speaking to Ms Cebisa Ndlazi,an English teacher from Nompendulo High School in a semi-rural township outside King Williamstown,sheds some light on the problem. "When talking to my learners I find that most homes don't have any reading material. And ifthey do,it is only in Xhosa",says Ms Ndlazi. "This is a problem as the language of learning and teaching in South African schools is English. This means that learners write all their subject examinations in a language which they only hear inside the school walls, she adds The Zenex Foundation supports schools such as Nompendulo as well as centres of excellence such as Kearsney. Through the ISASA Maths and English bursary programme Zenex is a valued Kearsney partner Their research studies have shown W z o I—I H < Q Z Z o >- PJ z CO < l-p The Mzi and Khosi Khumalo Foundation metfor lunch with current students and discussed plans to continue their support in perpertuity through Endowed Funding.
