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.

To All Kyle Prep Parents
Consultation Day  (Pre-School – Grade 6)  
This will be on Thursday 16 October from 11.00am to 2.00pm.  Please come and discuss your child's performance with the class teacher and see his/her work.  After this, parents may take their children home for the mid-term break.

Two children each from grade 4, 5 and 6 will be taking part in the Midlands Christian School Spelling Bee this evening.  We wish them all the best.  
Mid-Term Break

2015 Enrolment 
We are still enrolling children for next year.  If you, or someone you know, would like to have your child in Kyle Prep next year please make sure your completed application forms are in before the end of October. 
School Photographs 
These will be taken on 22 and 23 October.  The order forms and money for photographs must be in by Thursday 16 October.  Boarders may return theirs on Monday 20 October.  The photographer will not take your child's picture if he/she has not returned his/her form and money.  
The children raised $629 for Kidzcan last term and the money was donated to the cancer Foundation. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this worthy cause.

Our girls and boys did very well in the tennis and double wicket cricket tournaments played at Murray MacDougall School last Friday, considering that we had grade fours and fives playing with the seniors.  The girls came 4th and the boys came 5th out of nine participating schools.  Well done!!!
The colts played against the Development Side here at Kyle Prep on Wednesday afternoon and lost by 21 runs. 

Yours sincerely
