21 November 2014
To All Kyle Prep Parents
On Monday morning each grade planted an indigenous tree, the Water Berry Tree, and we hope the seven trees will grow to adorn the school for many years to come. 
Although there were not as many children doing business, on Entrepreneurs' Day, as anticipated, those who did take part showed a lot of ingenuity. 
The children really enjoyed the day with some having their wares sold out before they had finished setting up their stalls!
This morning our Pre-Schoolers have their concert and prize giving at the pavilion beginning at 9am.  
The Inter-House Quiz is on Wednesday morning at the pavilion.  You are very welcome to attend and support your house. 
The infants' prize giving and concert takes place in the Dutch Reformed Church Hall on Friday 28 November from 3.30pm to 5pm.   
The grade sevens leavers' dinner is on Saturday 29 November in Glenlivet.  The bus will take them from school at 4.30pm and bring them back by 10pm. 
Please remember the main prize giving and speech night is on Wednesday 3 December at 6pm in the Kolbe Hall at Kyle College. 
We are now coming to the end of the year and all text books and library books must be handed in.  ALL lost or damaged books will need to be replaced or paid for. 
All outstanding school and boarding fees should be paid in full no later than Friday 28 November 2014.
