Lalu Hu- Grobbelaar competed in the SAJCCC Nationals in Centurion this past weekend and attained her SAJCCC and National colours. Lalu will be participating in the African Common Wealth Games in Zambia in July 2022. We are super proud of you, Lalu, what an exceptional achievement!
The Grade 4D class went on an exciting and adrenaline filled Service Excursion to Fight with Insight. The students started off with a tour of the training facilities and proceeded to the boxing lessons. The room was filled with great energy and the urge to box as hard as they could. The day ended with a light activity of sorting and organising books in the library. Our students had lots of fun!

On Tuesday 5 April the Grade 1s had a very special visit from SA Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind. Four very cute and cuddly puppies came to meet our students. The students had the opportunity to learn all about the incredible work done by the SA Guide Dogs and how they help enhance the lives of the visually and physically impaired people and children with autism.
We wish our Kingsmead Checkm8tes Chess player, Lalu Hu- Grobbelaar all the best as she competes in the SAJCCC Nationals in Centurion this week.
This is an exceptional achievement and we are so proud of her. Wishing Lalu success at this event!

Courage Always The founder of Kingsmead College, Miss DV Thompson, planned a happy school, and this tradition continues - largely because of the spirit of comradeship between staff and girls and amongst our girls themselves.

Situated in beautiful gardens in Melrose, Kingsmead is easily accessible from all areas of Greater Johannesburg. Girls from Grade 000 (Bluebells) to Matric flourish in the nurturing, yet stimulating environment.

When the lights go out the show must go on! At last night’s opening Major Production performance, Load Shedding hit, but the lights did not go out. The audience supported our young performers by shining their own cell phone lights to make sure that the show could indeed, go on. What an encouraging community we have, helping our students to sustain their courage, always.

Yesterday we were visited by one of the amazing South African children's book author Refiloe Moahloli. Refiloe read two of her books to our Grade 1s, the tittles of her books are "You are loved" and "We are one". It was such a special moment for our students to interact with an author that they've been reading about.

The Inter-House Gala is one of the most exciting events in the first term seeing our houses battle it out to be crowned the inter-house gala champions. After missing the gala the last 2 years, we were grateful to witness the excitement and fun once again.

We saw amazing camaraderie and sportsmanship from all our students who participated in the gala. The supporters were nothing short of amazing all deserving the spirit cup, as they cheered their houses with all they had.

Congratulations to all of the swimmers that participated in what was undoubtedly a great kick-off to sports for the year.

Our Grade 6 and Grade 7 students celebrated the International Day of Women and Girls in Science by creating fun experiments.

The Grade 7s were ‘Making Magic Happen’ using an inquiry process. The students had to investigate what will happen if a Styrofoam cup is placed in a measured amount of acetone. They worked on establishing important skills used by scientist including observing, hyposthesising, questioning, measuring, interpreting and recording.”

The Grade 6s conducted a fun experiment to investigate whether ‘sponge animals’ would hatch in water of varying temperatures.
