TERM 2 WEEK 4
30 April 2012
Dear Kings Christian School Community,
Our students who participated did exceptionally well and obtained
two ‗Gold‘s‘, and two third places. The students had a lot of fun and
came back with great memories, many stories to tell and a lot more
confidence! I am sure the next group of students are looking
forward to attending the 2013 Junior Convention!
This month we also have the Chicken braai, and tickets and
further instructions will be sent out to parents shortly.
Playschool Parents:
Please remember to supply a small A5 ‗communication’ book
for your child, if not done so already! In this book, the playschool
staff are able to communicate important events and requests to
parents, such as the recent request to bring food items to school for
‗cultural food‘ week. Please also check and sign the book everyday.
Playschool immunizations take place on Friday and forms need
to be handed back to the school office as soon as possible.
We have also done a ‗test-run‘ on sending bulk-SMS’s to parents.
Please advise the school office if you want any of your mobile
numbers removed from the notification system.
Please remember to send a copy of your child‘s birth certificate,
and in the case of foreign students, passport details, if you have not
done so already.

―For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you
gave me a drink. I was lonely and you made me welcome. I was
naked and you clothed me. I was ill and you came and looked
after me. I assure you, that whatever you did for the humblest of
my brothers, you did for me‖.
Matthew 25 v 35—40.

JUNIOR CONVENTION- BERGKROON WELLINGTON
(More photos are available on our FACEBOOK page.)
Our students had a wonderful time in Wellington amidst the beauty of
the surrounding mountains and the wonders of nature, with tame
Springbuck nonchalantly strolling around the campsite, a few fluffy
sheep, 2 large lazy pot-belly pigs, a very friendly cow, a pregnant,
hungry and cheeky nanny-goat, who accosted unsuspecting students in
the lunch-queue for food!
And then there where lots of chickens and roosters with their little
chicks perched in the strangest of places, such as the dining hall, and of
course, plenty of opportunity to experience God‘s creation in all is
beauty and Glory. A big THANK YOU to the organisers as well as the
Bergkroon staff for a wonderful convention!
'Leonardo' Tshona at work.....
Uzusiphe Tshona came home with the Gold medal and trophy in the
‗Improvisation Art‘ category, (which ALL convention students had to
participate in).
Too fast for the camera!
Hannah Robinson did not allow any obstacles to get in her way, and
received a Gold medal for the fastest girl in the ‗Obstacle Course‘ race,
with a time of 3.17min, compared to 3.13min for the fastest boy!
Well done to both students!

CONVENTION - CONTD.
Alistair Otto received third placing for ‗Improvisation Art‘.
I am convinced that our results in the Art division can be attributed to,
not only their God-given natural talent, but also the excellent input
Hanna Naude has been instilling into our students during their weekly
art classes at Kings.
And finally, our Choir (Venus Hillairet,
Bronwyn Whelan, Takia Strydom,
Hannah Robinson and Michanne Baker) received third placing
in the ‗Vocal Group‘ category.
And then of course, there was just FUN
and lots of pillow-fighting!

HONOUR ROLL TRIP
LOVERS WALK AND WATERFALL
Guess who?
It’s great to be honoured!
Attaaaaaack!!
REWARD!!!
Attaaaaaack!! 1
The slightly more adventurous.....
The intrepid Bush-Guide!
The Intermediate and Senior classes had a lovely Honour Roll day, with a
picnic at the Badkloof braai area near ‗Lovers Walk‘. Some of the more
adventurous seniors embarked on a hike through the beautiful Kloof to the
waterfall, for a quick ‗dip‘, while attempting to identify plants and animals on
the way there and back! Wouldn‘t a ‗hiking group‘ be a good thing to start?
The day ended back at the school hall with a video, lollipops and delicious hot
chocolate!
