Our 1st team hockey girls had a good practice against the Kyle College U14 team on Monday. 

On Tuesday and Wednesday we had our traditional derby against Midlands Christian School. 

Tuesday – played at M.C.S.:  Both our 1st teams (rugby and hockey) lost their games whereas the fillies and colts won theirs. 

Wednesday – played here at Kyle: Unfortunately both the 1st and the fillies netball teams also lost their matches.  Our 1st team hockey boys drew with MCS while the colts won their game.     

Tomorrow our boys and girls are going to play rugby and hockey in Bulawayo at the Whitestone and Petra Festivals.  The bus will leave the school at 1.00pm this afternoon and should return by 6.00pm tomorrow evening.  We wish them all the best!  

Yours sincerely                                                                                                                                                                     W J Weideman

8 May 2015 Newsletter

8 May 2015
To All Kyle Prep Parents 
Welcome back to the second term.  We trust that the holiday with your children has given you time for relaxation and renewal.  We look forward to another wonderful term with many opportunities for learning and growing.  A special word of welcome to our new children and their parents. 
We encourage you all to become active partners in the education process and volunteer wherever possible. 
Please share your ideas, encouragements and concerns with us so that we can provide the best possible learning environment for your child. 
Thank you to our teachers and staff for a very well organised South Eastern District's athletics meeting last term, to the PTA for the eats and drinks and to all the parents for their support.  Although we were rained out (washed away!) and could not finish the competition, everybody still enjoyed themselves.  
We would also like to thank everyone who helped in the preparation of the Easter Concert. 
We begin our sporting fixtures for the term with the Midlands Christian School Derby, in which our children go to Gweru on Tuesday for rugby and girls hockey and on Wednesday the MCS children come here to play boys hockey and netball.  This is followed by the Petra and Whitestone Festivals in Bulawayo next weekend.
Please also refer to the post on afternoon activities and the fixtures and events programmes for this term.
Yours sincerely

Last weekend our senior teams took part in the Hippo Valley Estates Primary School Tennis and 7-a-side Cricket Tournaments in the Lowveld.  Our cricketers came 4th out of 8 teams, with Happias Zhou being awarded batsman of the tournament.  Our tennis girls were placed 1st out of 6 schools.  Two of our girls, Deborah Mhizha and Chloe Chiweshe-Davies, were the best overall players.  Well done to you all!! 
Tomorrow our athletics team are in Gweru for the Midlands Christian School Invitational Athletics Meeting.  They will be participating against five other schools.  The bus leaves school at 5am and will be back at 5pm. 

Yours sincerely
