110 MarketWizards This was another successful year for the club in which both the grade 11s and the grade 10s showed flair and determination. We entered eight teams of four grade 11 boys into the JSE/Liber ty Life investment challenge. The teams did reasonably well; all learning impor tant experience based trading lessons that they will take into their financial lives beyond school. The grade 10 group also had a very productive year, working their way through a trading economics course and a course on fundamental and technical analysis of equities and currencies. The boys are to be congratulated on their perseverance, as being a member of this club is a commitment to attending regular lectures and workshops for ten months of the year for two years! This commitment speaks to the members’ seriousness about their financial freedom and can only bode very well for their futures. Thank you boys, for another profitable year. May the probabilities be with you! Jason Rottcher Photography Club The photography boys represent a small, but very committed group of boys, who watch life at Kearsney through the eye of a camera lens. Whether they are at a cultural or spor ting event, precious memories and momentous occasions are captured at the click of a button. It is a highlight for the boys of the College to scroll the intranet looking for action shots caught of the weekend’s spor ting successes. A new addition to the view platform is the Kearsney Facebook page where, thanks toTracey van den Aardweg and Heather Pearce, pictures are loaded within a couple of hours of an event. The Photography Club was for tunate enough to acquire new equipment this year : an awesome macro lens and a super zoom lens. The club was chaired by Gareth Brown who faithfully took charge and set up aWhatsApp group to make communication easier between members. This forum has provided us with many laughs. My sincere thanks are extended to the boys for their enthusiasm, commitment and passion. Glenda Pitcher Mountain Bike Club The Mountain Bike Club was far more active this year. A membership of ten boys rode regularly and we had numerous outings to Giba Gorge and did a couple of out rides as well as training on our own track.
