Parents, grandparents and family members all gathered to watch the enchanted journey through a magical forest. The delightful BeNS concert was just what was needed to warm everyone's heart on a chilly winter's morning.The annual BeNS concert is the highlight of each year when the creativity of our children is displayed. Mrs Bain and her team of very passionate teachers and teacher assistants beamed from ear to ear to see the fruit of their labour.
After an eventful start to the year, our annual Interhouse Gala proved to be a battle between Pegasus and Unicorn. Pupils arrived in bright blue and golden yellow to show their support along with their families and friends. Pupils from Grade Three to Grade Seven participated in both fun and competitive races in order to put a score on their houses’ scoreboards. The freestyle ladder was the final race and the most exciting one. It resulted in both houses equalizing their points and sharing the cup for the first time in Beaulieu Preparatory’s history. It was an amazing day for both Pegasus and Unicorn.
Beaulieu Prep Exec Staff sleep out for charity.
Beaulieu Prep School's Executive members could not let an opportunity like this go by especially during the 20th year celebration of their school's existence. The Headmistress, Mrs Noele Hillen, wanted to do something special and the Sun International CEO SleepOut was an opportunity not to be missed.
Mrs Hillen, Mrs Bain, Ms Hughes, Mrs Waldron and Mrs Voget (The Team) will all be taking part in this event. The Team showed their pupils,in assembly, just how they plan on spending the evening.
In celebration of Youth Day - 40 years on.
Beaulieu Preparatory School was most fortunate to have, Mrs Antoinette Sithole as a guest speaker during the school Assembly. Mrs Sithole is the late Hector Petersen's sister and she is depicted in the famous photograph above. Pupils, staff and parents were riveted as Mrs Sithole retold her first-hand account of that tragic day, 16 June 1976, when pupils gathered to protest peacefully against Afrikaans as their medium of instruction in their classes being Afrikaans. It was during these peaceful protests that her brother, Hector Pieterson was shot and killed. It is with a true understanding of the many sacrifices paid on that day that the Beaulieu pupils will celebrate Youth Day on 16 June.

Beaulieu Preparatory along with Kyalami Preparatory hosted the inaugural Kyalami schools Night Hockey Festival at Beaulieu College Astro. Schools from neighbouring areas were invited to participate in the event. The series ran over three weeks on a Friday evening. Much fun was had by all who were involved. The majority of the players experienced playing hockey under floodlights for the first time, which added to the atmosphere. Both preparatory schools also had the chance to watch the Beaulieu College first team in action. It was a fantastic experience for our preparatory school pupils to see the passion with which Beaulieu College played and the support they received from the school and parents on the evening. The Night series ended off on a high with the host schools both reaching the finals. The tension was almost tangible. Beaulieu Preparatory boys' team managed to beat Kyalami Preparatory in the finals in extra time with a Golden Goal. The Beaulieu girls' side managed to secure a Silver after losing to Dainfern in the finals.
Well done to everybody who was involved. We hope to see this Night Series grow year by year.
