Beyond Adventures Group donation

Thank you so much to the Beyond Adventures Group who donated over 100 food parcels to our learners. We were so excited that we began to distribute the food together with their pupils without any delay. Little did we know just how much this act of random kindness would mean to the learners.

When we say thank you to the Beyond Adventures Group, we say it from hearts of people who know generational cycles of poverty, who struggle daily but are so grateful to have this generous donation to help feed families and also feed our own souls with hope and motivation to keep going. Thank you once again.

Broubart Group donation

Mr Mark Wood on behalf of Broubart Group has been generous enough to come to our rescue when we desperately needed help and donated quite a number of stationary and books. Thank you so very much to Mark Wood and Broubart for their willingness to always help the school whenever they can and always being our shoulder to cry on.

Some say, every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.

Thank you a thousand times.

Mr & Mrs Valentine Show 2022

On February 17th the school hosted Ms & Mrs Valentine’s Show in Town hall, the While Valentine’s Day origins suggest celebrating to remember St Valentine’s show is hosted every year on valentine’s day or on valentine’s week. The show is inspired by Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance and love and kissy-face reality. But the origin of this festival of candy and cupids is actually dark.

That is why we focus on the good side of it and celebrate the good things about it. The show was a success and everything about it was exquisitely exciting.

Thanks Giving Service

THANKS GIVING SERVICE

The thanks giving service has always been one of our many traditions that we have at the school and is held at the beginning of the year. This service is a way of saying thank you to our Lord, Jesus Christ for always being with us through the year until we start and finish the exams without any challenges of obstacles.

We believe that with him by our side and the dedication that the learners show throughout the year we are able to produce good Grade 12 results each year. That is why it is always essential for us to have services like this one.

World Read Aloud Day

WORLD READ ALOUD DAY

On the 3rd of February the school, together with the Library Assistants from the Alicedale Makana Library held a world read aloud session for the Grade3 Pupils. The session was held at the school and one of the Library assistants read a story to the Kids about a Turnip. Children really enjoyed the story and also participated in the acting out of the story.

Looking forward to working them again.

Principals Note December 2021

The Principal’s Note!

Greetings to all of you.

What an emotional roller coaster year we had. As we draw the curtains to 2021, let me pay tribute to all and sundry for dedication, determination and fortitude in abundance against all odds. This year we have experienced too many hardships, and the difficult of these has been the loss of our loved ones through fate or chance. We mourn everyone of them.

Let me share some of the snippets that will make this a year to remember:

Academic:

The Class of 2020 brought much joy to the school community with the unrivalled

93% pass results in the recent past as we ushered in a new decade.

Staff:

The school welcomed two new members on board ,namely Ms.Ntozini and Mr.Vayo

to teach in the Foundation and Intermediate phase, respectively. Also, the SMT

was beefed up with the appointment of Mrs. Gxamza,S as the HOD in the primary

section of the school. The school is still reeling in shock with the untimely loss of the

industrious Mrs Dyasi, Ntombizanele, a spiritual mother of the HKCS family, who

succumbed to cryptogenic stroke. May her soul rest in eternal peace.

Co-Curricula:

The donation of copious reading material by the Broubart Group meant the re-establishment of the school library, this can only bode well to the reading nation.

Born Free Foundation started an environment club with the learners which was

welcomed by HKCS community, as it targets the youth with a purpose of environment awareness. SK [Sifunda Kunye] held a writing competition and our learners hoisted the school flag high with Tsamse,Thembakazi(Grade 9) getting in the podium for a second position.

Festivities:

Despite the dark cloud of the pandemic, the school hosted lots of festivities, viz:

  • Talent show
  • Pyjamas Day
  • Heritage Day

As I sign off, I would like to wish everyone good health and wealth during this festival time. May the good Lord shelter you under His wing. See you in the next academic year on 19/01/2022.

Hasta la vista.  

Myona,Monde [Hendrik Kanise Combined School- Principal]

Hertritge day 2021

September isn’t only the month when spring officially begins but it is also Heritage Month. On the 23rd of September we held an event to celebrate heritage day which is a public holiday that is celebrated every year on the 24th of September. The school holds this type of event every year and it is our way of remembering the many cultures that make up the population of South Africa. Various event were staged during the heritage celebration which included cultural dance and poetry, The highlight of the day was taking group photos next to an art piece that was created by the school’s well known artist Liyema Ndabambi. A short story about him will follow.

Talent show

Talents are things you’re good at and can get you in a good place in life. Everyone has talents, but sometimes we haven’t found them. So a talent show can help us discover our performing arts gifts. Talent shows help cure stage fright because if you perform on stage once, you will not be as scared the second time. If you do it again and again, you can learn from your past experience and you won’t faint in front of everyone and embarrass yourself. Fear is in the mind. That is why the school hold these cute talent shows for kids to help cure those stage frights and it is always a wonderful thing to witness. Kids showcased their different talents and is

Hope the next talent show will be as fun as the one we had.

Spring day 2021

The first day of September traditionally marks the beginning of spring. In South Africa Spring Day falls on the 1st of September and marks the end of the dreary cold winter days and the beginning of sunny summer days and nights. On the 10th of September the school held a spring show where the kids were dressing in yellow and floral. It was a really fun day and the kids really enjoyed it.

Thank you Mrs Gxamza for organising the event.
