The vision of the Kyalami Schools, is to be A Community of Schools Developing Global Achievers.

I have always loved “big, hairy and audacious goals” and feel strongly that we should teach our children to aim high. We are, after all, spurred on by the spirit of our school motto, Quaerite Astra, which roughly translated from the Latin, means Reach for the Stars.

Another wonderful and jam-packed term has come to an end. We look forward to the holiday period and knowthat our children and staff will all need some time-out to relax and recharge.

The school office will remain open throughout the school holidays although the hours will be shortened (08:00to 14:00) daily. A holiday soccer clinic and a Splash/Craft Club will operate on some of the days.

The events calendar for the second term has been finalised and the term will be an extremely busy one – withschool events scheduled for most weekends. Please find a copy on the D6 communicator.

The weather is usually fine when we return to school for the second term. Children will continue to wear summeruniform until the weather turns cold. Once the weather is consistently cold, winter uniform will becomecompulsory for all pupils.I thank you for your support of the school during the term and wish you all some happy down-time with thechildren.

From the Headmistress’ Desk

I am becoming more and more concerned that children seem to have access to smart devices (cellphones and tablets) without the essential, conscious parallel greements which are necessary and without the express understanding as to when and how these devices will be used by children and monitored by parents. A critical part of the agreement MUST be that the monitoring of, and the coaching in, the use of these devices will take place on a regular basis to ensure their safe and proper use. This must be a condition of use for the children.

Children in the preparatory school should NEVER have unrestricted and unsupervised access to the internet and they should not be using any of the social media platforms, including WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (amongst others), as these are age-restricted for VERY good reason.

Chair's Valediction Address - Beaulieu Preparatory

The grade 7 class of 2017, family members, staff of the KS Group, Mrs Hillen, and members of the board, good morning.

It’s been a long leg of what I hope will be a lifelong learning journey; 7 or so years for most of the grade 7 pupils. Further legs of this journey get shorter and shorter from now on; 5 years for matric, 3 or 4 years for a bachelor’s degree, 1 year or so for a master’s degree, and 3 years or so for a PhD. As you can see, you have covered the longest leg of the formal learning journey! I think you deserve a resounding round of applause.

Grade 7 pupils of any year are special. I believe that you have worked well together as a team. I have it on good authority that you have demonstrated a balanced diversity in academic, sporting and cultural interests and talents.
