2 Mr Chairman, the guest of honour, Mr Monde Nkosi, guests, staff, parents, Old Boys, boys of the College and the Sixth Form Class of 2019. Monde, what a joy it is to have you as our guest of honour today. We are so proud of you, and we look forward to your address later. Welcome to the Heads, members of Boards and representatives of schools who have honoured us with their presence today – thank you for trying, and taking the time, to attend today's ceremony. It is customary on this occasion to record those staff members who have left during the year, or who will leave by the end of the year. Thus far this year, two members of the Estates staff have left Kearsney viz Messers Albert Sibisi and Bashimane Ramushu. Two IT staff, Atish Raghubir and Clinton Brayley, have moved on to other opportunities and Sister Jo van Musschenbroek, who oversaw the Sanatorium for nearly nine years, has taken up a position near Edinburgh, Scotland. Each cog in the wheel that these employees have occupied is crucial to the running of the College, and while we acknowledge their contributions and thank them for their service, we wish them well in their future endeavours. I think Kearsney and I are indeed fortunate to have such a high calibre of staff fulfilling management roles in the College. Each one of my management is an expert in their field, fully identifying and aligning themselves with the mission and vision of the College and being prepared to innovate, bring about necessary changes and adapt to a fast-changing environment. These managers lead teams of committed employees, teachers, administration and estates staff who are prepared to go the extra mile for the College. I believe that the average turnover of teachers at independent schools is in the region of 16% per annum. At Kearsney, this figure is significantly less. To illustrate, at the end of this year, we have only one full-time member of staff who will be leaving and one part-timer. Mr and Mrs Perrett will be heading back to China to teach in an international school. Mr Perrett was an intern at the College and then employed to head the Life Orientation Department last year. Mrs Perrett taught junior English and Mandarin. We thank them and wish them well in this exciting new venture. We also draw on the support and expertise of many wonderful people who give freely of their time and expertise without remuneration to assist the College to attain the heights that it does. This culture of volunteerism is something we do not take for granted as Kearsney's strength lies mostly in the very people who give of themselves, their time and their expertise for the greater good. In this respect, we acknowledge the members of the Board, the knowledge they provide and the interest they have in the College under the calm and intelligent chairmanship of Mr Andrew Parsons. The Trustees, who occupy the apex of governance at the College are wisdom personified. Led by Old Boy Mr Rob Lloyd, they have been pillars of support. We thank Rob for his composed and considered chairmanship of the Trust over the past few years. The Development Fund was set up by the Old Boys in 1982 to assist primarily with bursary and scholarship funding and is chaired by Old Boy Mr Peter Morgan. They have expertly managed the investment of the Endowment Fund Trust through an investment company, growing it and thereby providing muchneeded funds to assist families to send their sons to Kearsney. The Parents’ Society, chaired by Dr Doug Beere, is thanked for its generosity of time and energy in support of myriad activities at the College. We also have a proactive and supportive Old Boys Club, which, under the chairmanship of Wray Radford, has been incredibly positive and willing to assist the College in numerous ways. We also pay tribute to all the donors who make it possible for Kearsney to host and facilitate functions and events and even for Kearsney to offer bursaries to boys who would otherwise be unable to attend the College. We thank the many donors of the College, some of whom are individual benefactors and others who represent a business or a trust. I see some are present with us in this hall today. Thank you most sincerely for your generosity, love and support. HEADMASTER’S SPEECH From Speech Day Headmaster's Report

3 A final thank you goes to my wife, Tracey, for her energy and enthusiasm for Kearsney, and her unwavering support of me in my role. Her hosting of functions at our home, ke Lapeng, and accompanying me on official duties, makes my job a lot easier and more pleasant. Nothing is ever too much, and she takes it all in her stride. The Headmaster of the Methodist school, Kingswood College, in England, Mr Gary Best, on celebrating that school’s 250th year of existence in 1998, said of his position as Headmaster, "I am not here to guard a museum but rather to cultivate a garden". He was referring to his duties as principal as not being primarily to maintain the status quo but rather to be the guardian of growth, regeneration, pruning where necessary and ultimately ensuring beauty and sustainability. I think the pupils of that school must have been relieved that the Wesleyan status quo in some respects wouldn't be perpetuated. Its founder, John Wesley, drafted the first general rule for the school which was, and I quote, "The children rise at four, winter and summer, and spend the time till five in private; partly in reading, partly in singing, partly in self-examination or meditation. At five, there was an act of worship together to start the day's activities: Lessons then occupied most of the day. When not being taught or attending worship or meals, Kingswood pupils were to "work according to their strength in the garden: and, on rainy days, in the house", unless they were involved in another approved activity. Industriousness was a sign of moral character: "without industry, we are neither fit for this world nor the world to come". Pupils at Kingswood were to have no holidays "for children may unlearn as much in one week as they have learned in several". Indeed, there was to be no time for play on any day for "he that plays when he is a child will play when he is a man". Two hundred and fifty years later, Gary Best emphasised that his duty, or a Principal's duty, cannot be to maintain the status quo (imagine running a school these days on strictly Wesleyan lines of 1748). We at Kearsney need to cultivate a garden with all the garden and gardening metaphors applied to a school that I am sure you can imagine. As we stand on the brink of the 2020s, I thought to mention a few of the many challenges that the garden, in this case, Kearsney College, has faced, and continues to grapple with into the 2020s. On the administration side, we implement measures to protect ourselves from cyber threats by continually enhancing our firewall through providers like Kaspersky to protect our data and digital records from being held to ransom or risking it to cyber fraud. Risk analysis is a common practice, as is reviewing insurance against such risks. Strategic financial sustainability, and the threat of declining numbers of potential applicants due to increasing emigration–which has been reported from all primary and prep schools within our living standards number, and which feed boys into our schools, has sharpened our marketing efforts. The low economic growth in the country over recent years is no cause for celebration. Yet, we at Kearsney are experiencing unprecedented demand for places at the College and for boarding in particular. Next year will see another record intake of Grade 8 boys into the College, and the number of boarders is at an all-time high. The statistics speak for themselves of a school in demand and a healthy climate within the boarding houses that is attractive to our customers. Further challenges have been in the unreliable supply of both power by Eskom and water from the municipality. Fortunately, the Board has been proactive to shield us from the detrimental effects that these disruptions could cause by the installation of a diesel generator and the commissioning of underground reservoirs holding standby water. These reservoirs can see us through a four-day municipal water cut, such as the one we experienced earlier this year over our Open Weekend. Our pursuit of following sound environmental policies in looking at alternate sources of power and in recycling continues. Within the classroom environment, the fourteen classrooms in the newly completed Centenary Centre are providing learning environments consistent with world standards, supporting 21st Century teaching methodologies of collaborative learning, discussion forums and individual internet research options. Much attention has been paid to the importance of sound and reverberation time in the classrooms with the installation of acoustic panels and other features to enhance the learning environment. Allan Gray Investment Management has supported the Entrepreneurship programme at the College, culminating with the Changemaker Day held earlier this term. We believe that key to addressing the ills of the South African economy is the development of the business sector and the encouragement of small business and entrepreneurship. Our boys need to develop an entrepreneurial mindset in identifying problems and working to address those positively and in so doing, providing benefit to both social and environmental elements of our country. We have introduced a course in robotics at the junior level and are preparing our boys for the demands of the fourth industrial revolution. ...the newly completed Centenary Centre are providing learning environments consistent with world standards, supporting 21st Century teaching methodologies Headmaster's Report

4 We are still learning about and are willing to rise to the challenge of assisting boys who, through no fault of their own, experience ill health, including mental health challenges. Suffice to say, this year these boys have shown tremendous resilience and have worked hard, together with their parents and teachers to catch up missed tuition and are thankfully able to be with us today in confident anticipation of their final examinations. There has been much success in our weight-loss programme where boys volunteer to be part of the programme overseen by our Wellness committee, driven by health professionals including a medical doctor, registered dietician, biokineticist and educational psychologist. We have noticed improved academic results, an improvement in self-concept and general wellness in young men on this programme who have learned how to self- manage their lifestyles. On the academic front, our inclusion and counselling support are about to move into a new venue, which will allow our boys with barriers to learning to receive instruction in bespoke learning environments and complete their examinations in the best possible conditions. Kearsney has made great strides in working towards being a more inclusive school. Our beautiful facilities are used annually by thousands of school children from all over the country, drawn from rural and urban environments, state and independent schools. The Foundation Department works with corporates, foundations, sponsors and Old Boys to raise funding, making it possible for boys who would otherwise not have been able to enjoy a Kearsney education, and who would not have had the opportunity of enriching the life of the College, to attend Kearsney. Many boys who will receive prizes today are the beneficiaries of this much-needed assistance. As Kearsney moves into the 2020s, we are picking up momentum to celebrate the College's Centenary in 2021. Centenary preparations are well underway, and you can familiarise yourself with the progress by checking the latest details on the Kearsney website. In preparation for the Centenary, this Grade 12 class has assisted us in the planting of well over 60 indigenous trees over their time at the College. Three years ago, an avenue of White Stinkwoods was planted on the east side of the Stott and today they stand roughly five meters tall. Earlier this year we planted a row of Cape Chestnuts on the eastern boundary of the AH Smith Oval. There is a Greek proverb that goes, "A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in." Now, I wouldn't entirely refer to the Grade 12s as old men but the lesson of planting trees that you as Kearsney boys would not sit under is the message I would like to emphasise. And this metaphor can be applied to the way you have led the College this year. Under the guidance of Headboy, Kade Mindry, and Deputy-head, Ezra Tsela, the Heads of Houses, their deputies, captains of sport, leaders of clubs and societies, in music and drama and senior mentors – you have all played your part and us as a school salute you. H Jackson Brown Jr is an American author, best known for his book Life's Little Instruction Book which was a New York Times best-seller. He once wrote, "Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get." I want to suggest that the Kearsney garden you Grade 12s have left reflects the care you gave us. Thank you for caring and thank you for leaving this garden in a better state than you found it. Our best wishes go to you, the Class of 2019, for your examinations and in your lives ahead. Thank you for your attention. God bless you. Mr Elwyn van den Aardweg Kearsney has made great strides in working towards being a more inclusive school. Our beautiful facilities are used annually by thousands of school children from all over the country, drawn from rural and urban environments, state and independent schools. Headmaster's Report

11 I stand here today looking out at a group of unique individuals, all with different pasts, different futures, different religions, and different beliefs. Although there are all these differences, there is one thing that unites us. One thing that makes us one school. One thing that makes us the same. Brotherhood. Good morning to the headmaster, Mr Nkosi, special guests, staff, and boys of the College. When young men of different backgrounds and beliefs who practice good faith in their fraternity values by following in their founder’s footsteps - this is brotherhood; when there is an understanding between one another and a feeling of friendship between people - this is brotherhood; when there is a fellowship, an alliance and a sense of trust that cannot be broken - this is brotherhood. At Kearsney, this sense of brotherhood is what has kept us going strong for 98 years and is the reason we will continue to grow and excel for the 98 years to come. This brotherhood is what has united us and is the reason that 2019 was no different from all the successful years before. We will soon end another chapter in the history book of Kearsney College; we will put a full stop at the end of the 2019 page in the chronicles of the College. But I can assure you that this full stop, does not mark the end, but only the beginning of what lies ahead for each boy who leaves. Over the course of this year, one question has come up very often when speaking to Old Boys, parents and even some teachers. Has it been a successful year? But how can a successful year be defined? Some could base success on sporting results. Some could base it on academic results. The problem with these physical attributes is that they will subside. It is almost impossible for an institution to be the best at everything year after year. If you decided to base success on these physical attributes, then no matter how you judge it, 2019 has been a successful year. This school is in its golden age: our classrooms are full; our waiting lists are long; our academic results are outstanding. We have developed into a world-renowned cultural institution and we continue to compete against the biggest and the best on the sports field. But can we really base success on what goes down in record books? Do we base our judgment of this school on material accolades? Is the purpose of this school to win trophies, better previous results and keep the record books from getting dusty? The real magnitude of our success is not depicted by these physical attributes, but rather in the things that cannot be recorded. When you choose to look at these things, this is when it can be said that we, as an institution, are successful year after year. I believe Alber t Einstein got it right when speaking of success said, “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.” I believe this school is successful because we strive to create men of value and men of value produce success. Our motivation lies not in the accolades, but in the calibre of the young men who walk out of these gates. The values and morals that have been passed down from generation to generation, and that are present in every pupil, is what makes us successful. The honour, the respect, the discipline and the sense of pride for the school that is present in every Kearsney pupil, old or young, is what makes us successful. These things are fairly easy to predict based on the common trends of the past, but the most predictable thing about a boy’s time at the College, is that af ter your five years here, just as the Class of 2019 will do, you will leave Kearsney well equipped with all the fundamentals needed to contribute to a better community, having entered the system as a big-headed small boy, and leaving as a level-headed young man ready for the world. Class of 2019 THE CLASS OF 2019 Valedictory speech by Headboy, Kade Mindry–September 2019 The real magnitude of our success is not depicted by these physical attributes, but rather in the things that cannot be recorded.

12 Class of 2019 Our Kearsney community consists of special relationships and bonds forged between not only the boys, but the staff too. These relationships mean so much more than mere academic success. I really appreciate and value all the staff of this school who have worked hard to achieve a balance between working towards accolades and working towards growth in relationships and individuals. These efforts will not be taken lightly and we do truly appreciate all that we have because of the staff. In order for us as individuals to win, we in turn must help those around us to win too. The class of 2019 has worked together to develop each individual and acknowledge their part in the success. For this, they must be commended. I thank you boys for the path that you chose to take this year. You chose to take the path that would better the College, not only as a school but as a home. I would like to single out Ezra and acknowledge him for the part he has played in my journey, and also the effort that he has put into his role. To the prefect body, I thank you for putting the needs of the college before your own. Thank you to the Matrics for everything that we have shared this year but also for the incredible people you are. I am lucky and truly proud to call myself a Matric pupil of the Class of 2019 because of you all. We as a form have learnt from the mistakes as well as the glory of the past, but we have never forgotten our individuality. We have grown as individuals and matured as a form. We have acknowledged that leading a SPEECH DAY AND GRADE 12 PRIZE-GIVING This special day in our calendar was an opportunity to acknowledge the achievements of the Class of 2019. Pictured: A group of prize winners and academic achievers school entails many different styles of leadership. Each person associated with Kearsney has played a role in the triumph of Kearsney. As the class of 2019 we have contributed to the legacy of Kearsney’s history that will go in both the written and the unwritten chronicles of the College. To the boys, thank you for having faith in and respect for the Matrics as we have led you throughout the year. Thank you for understanding your importance, but not demanding power. We as a school have understood what Oliver Tambo meant when he said, “The children of any nation are its future. A country, a movement, a person that does not value its youth and children, does not deserve its future.” We have truly implemented the mutual respect that is imperative for unity and success. As this year draws to a close I would like to take this moment to pay tribute and thank my parents who have supported me through my entire Kearsney career. Mom and Dad, I wouldn’t have made it without you. In conclusion to my speech today and as one of my final roles as the Headboy of this College, I can truly say that 2019 has been successful because we have understood the true definition of success and we have risen to what we were commissioned to do five years ago when we entered these hallowed gates. “Not to become men of success. Rather to become men of value.” Thank you Kade Mindry

16 The prefect body of 2019 has done an exceptional job, putting the needs of the College before their own and stepping up to the plate to further the achievements of the successful Class of 2018. Although they knew that this would be a tough task, they rose to the occasion. Many sacrifices have been made, knowing that there will be little or no reward for them personally. This is truly admirable and sets the standard that not only the prefects, but every boy at the College, should look to achieve. The goals for 2019 discussed at the prefect seminar before school opened were to: To create a sense of unity within the whole school, not just grades; to back each other, even when you do not agree; not to undermine each other; to have mutual respect for everyone; Have a bond with the guys that they are responsible for whilst ensuring they remain level-headed. These goals have all been achieved and will all play a major role in making the Kearsney of today the best it can be. There have been times where there were minor setbacks and some issues to deal with, but the team reacted maturely and sorted them out. The group have grown tremendously as individuals and learnt many life lessons that I am sure will stay with them for the rest of their lives. These lessons include decision-making, problem-solving and time-management. Although the prefect body had extra responsibilities and authority compared to the rest of the Matrics, they managed to remain level-headed. Occasionally people who are put in positions with power will abuse their power and stray from who they were before they were elected. This has not been the case for anyone in the prefect body of 2019. Overall, the prefect body, with the help and cooperation of the other Matric boys, have had a successful year and I believe they have earned the respect of the whole school. We have set the bar extremely high for the Class of 2020 and we wish them all the best for next year.

17 Our theme for the year was to promote good relationships and brotherhood among the boys. The Council provides a forum where the voices and opinions of the boys of the College can be heard in respect of topics that could potentially affect all boys. A Grade 12 boy is responsible for leading each of the various portfolios. One of the portfolios outside of relationships involves environmental responsibility. The College introduced the solar chargers in the Knowledge Centre, recycling of paper in every classroom and reduced food wastage in the dining halls. HOD of Life Sciences, Mr Macdonald, drove a recycling project where building-bricks were created from waste plastic. On the sports front, gym times were changed to accommodate various boys’ commitments. The new mini-astro called “The Cage” has created–an enclosed area where all boys can play during down time. I thank Kade Mindry, Headboy, and Ezra Tsela, Deputy, who supported and guided the KCC. The success of the 2019 KCC was largely due to teamwork and diversity of ideas. Each team member had something unique to offer. Brainstorming gave everyone an opportunity to exchange ideas and come up with creative ways of doing things while working together to find solutions and a common goal. The Council will continue to grow and ensure that the College’s traditions are upheld and respected.

19 2019 has, once again, been a successful and rewarding year for the boys of Finningley House. It has been incredibly heartening to witness the easing of divisions between the grades over the last five years and 2019 epitomises the growth of the House in these terms. Five years ago, the challenge was to create an experience for the Finningley boys based on a combination of mutual respect and acceptance; a place where boys would feel supported and elevated, and capable of facing the challenges that this modern world continuously throws at them. This aspect has been a focal point for the leadership of the House and the necessity of providing a secure and stable base for our boys who face challenging circumstances has been at the forefront of all we do. As far as inter-house competition is concerned, Finningley enjoyed a mixed bag of results. Victories were gained on the rugby field and basketball court, as well as in chess. The boys displayed incredible passion and managed to achieve a very credible second place in the inter-house athletics after a particularly slow start to the competition. The juniors coming through look capable and talented and this bodes well for the future of the House. In the inter-house sporting competition, Finningley came storming back into contention after initially propping up the base, achieving a pleasing second place. This was facilitated by excellent results in squash, basketball, soccer and golf. Once again the participation of the Matric boys in organising and running the various activities proved invaluable and I thank each and every one of them. In the cultural sphere the boys battled to convert talent and capability into success. Sadly the inter-house music competition was once again fraught with perplexing scoring, leaving many viewers incredulous as to the results. The boys will need to take cognisance of the specific requirements and the apparent need to sacrifice musical excellence for popular culture if they wish to succeed. The inter-house plays were of a particularly high standard and unfortunately Finningley’s comedic and entertaining fare was not deemed worthy of recognition. With a wealth of talent in these spheres, the House can surely look forward to a successful 2020. I would like to pay homage to the leadership group of 2019. The House was ably led by Carlo Miller, along with his deputies Mpendulo Dlamini, Matt du Toit, Donovan Hurt and Luke Wilson. What becomes more and more apparent is the supportive role these incredible young men play. They manage to balance the mantels of both discipline and control, with empathy and understanding. It is not uncommon for them to spend time late into the night counselling and advising the young men whose well-being they are charged with. The Matric group of 2019 have been great ambassadors for the House. They have been approachable and have taken their roles as mentors to heart. They have created bonds that will be hard to break and I appreciate each and every one of them. The future beckons and I wish them Godspeed. In the words of the great Lewis Carrol, “Where should I go?” - Alice. “That depends on where you want to end up.” - The Cheshire Cat.” Thanks must also go to my assistant Housemaster Jonathan Waldburger, and duty staff, Brett Alborough and Senzo Mtshali, for all they do to ensure that Finningley is the special place that it is. This year we said goodbye to Matt Saville after a number of years as a Finningley duty master. His contribution to the House cannot be underestimated and he has had a marked impact on numerous Finningley boys who have been fortunate enough to have relied on his advice and leadership in the House. Matt will be missed and we wish him all the best in his pursuit of alternative avenues of interest. With Matt’s departure we were able to welcome Senzo Mtshali to the team. I wish Senzo all the best for a successful time in the Finningley family. And so the Grade 12 year of 2020 take to the stage. Throughout their time in the House they have proved to be a tightly-knit group, supportive of each other and passionate about the House. They are principled and determined and I look forward to working with them. Congratulations to Grant Craze, Matthew Murray, William Young and Mandiza Zama on their appointment as Deputy Head prefects for 2020. The House will be ably led by Noah Laurēnz, a young man of integrity, empathy and common-sense. Finningley has also deservedly sent three young men across to Haley to help mould the new Grade 8s into upstanding Kearsney gentlemen. Congratulations to Lefa Motshele, Amnene Mthiyane and Craig Phillips on their appointments as Deputy Head prefects of Haley House. 2020 promises to be a watershed year for Finningley House as we prepare for the centenary. The foundations have been laid, buried deep into the rich soil of Botha’s Hill. The walls have been erected straight and true. Now we await the crowning achievement. It is up to the boys of 2020 to raise the roof and complete the work of those who have gone before.
