Campus is slowly starting to come alive again as we start to gear up for the new academic year. We thought that it would be fitting that our Kingswood family should get to know our Head Pupils Leaders for 2021 a little better.
Wanda Madasa: Headgirl – 2021
Wanda grew up and lives in East London. She joined the Kingswood family at the start of her Grade 2 year. She is a keen hockey player and takes part in a number of extra-curricular activities including being part of the Interact Club and Toastmasters Club. She is hoping to study medicine after leaving school and we know that her dedication to her studies, compassion and caring nature will all stand her in good stead as she pursues a career in medicine.
Sibulele Zweni: Headboy – 2021
Sibulele grew up in King William’s Town, a small town just outside of East London. He first joined Kingswood at the start of Grade 8 and had previously been at Dale Junior. Sibulele says that moving to Kingswood College was a big change from an all-boys school environment, but that the co-educational system at Kingswood College has been worth it. He enjoys his sports, playing Cricket, Rugby and Hockey and if you ever get a chance to watch him do the high-jump during the Athletics season, you will not be disappointed.
Azola Poswa: Deputy Headgirl – 2021
Azie joined Kingswood in her Grade 9 year and is a very proud Kingswoodian and Jacques House girl. What she most enjoys about Kingswood is that there are so many avenues for pupils to be able to express themselves and for them to be able to get involved in a variety of different activities. She is one of our shining lights of the Interact Club and she has a passion for helping others to grow their faith and spiritual aspirations. Azie also has a younger brother in Grade 9 and in her spare time she loves listening to music, creating art and one of her hidden talents is baking! She hopes to pursue her love for baking once she leaves school and to study toward becoming a pastry chef! Watch out Great South African Bake Off – you may have a serious competitor on your hands in the years to come!
Darius Govender: Deputy Headboy – 2021
Darius Govender was born in Durban, but moved to Grahamstown and enrolled at Kingswood College in Pre-Primary. He says that he has loved every minute of his Kingswood journey and that he looks forward to seeing what his final year at school has in store. He enjoys playing sport and is a keen cricketer. Cricket is his passion and he hopes that he will one day be able to play professionally. Darius likes helping others and one of his favourite outreach programmes has been being able to take part in the Kingswood College/Mary Waters Maths Programme where he has been able to help develop the mathematical skills of younger pupils.
