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.
The Board of Directors has appointed Mr David Hala into the position of Head at Kyalami Preparatory School with effect from January 2018. Mr Hala will replace Mr Gary Botha who has been appointed as the CEO for the Kyalami Schools Group.

David comes with a wealth of experience in both the education and business sectors. He is currently the Deputy Head at St Peter’s Boys Preparatory. He will bring a vast amount of experience to the executive team at the school. His passion for education is the pastoral care of both the children and staff under his care and this will fit perfectly with the ethos and ‘feel’ of our school.
We would like to congratulate David on his appointment. We know that with your support, he is going to make a wonderful leader and we are looking forward to having him take over the Head’s role at Kyalami Prep.
Kyalami Preparatory along with Beaulieu 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 that were involved in the Hockey Night Series. Majority of the players experienced playing hockey under flood lights for the first time, which added to the atmosphere. Both preparatory schools 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 in 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.
Headmaster's Welcoming Tea
Mr Botha Headmaster at Kyalami Prep, shared tea with all his new pupils who commenced at Kyalami Prep this term. We wish all our new pupils the best at KPS.
It was with great joy that the official opening of the Kyalami Prep School's heated pool took place on Saturday 22 November 2014. The Parent Teacher Forum was the driving force behind this long awaited project.
