Dr Emmanuel Taban visits Kingswood College

This morning our Kingswood pupils were fortunate enough to attend a talk in our Kingswood College Memorial Chapel by Dr Emmanuel Taban. While the talk centred on his own life journey, the true power of Dr Taban’s talk was the fact that he told our pupils to not only be dreamers, but to be doers. The road to success is not an easy one. Many obstacles will inevitably come our way. It is how we choose to face those obstacles, which will predict our true success.

Launch of Cricket Development Initiative

In a move designed to bring the sport of cricket to as many young learners as possible, an exciting initiative was launched at Kingswood College on Wednesday afternoon. e to many talented young people, especially in the sports arena, but very often this talent cannot be identified, nurtured or taken further, due to a lack of infrastructure and facilities. The Young Warriors Cricket Development Programme is a pilot project and takes the form of a partnership between three local primary schools (George Dickerson, St Mary’s and Grahamstown Primary), Kingswood College, the Rhodes University HKE (Human Kinetics & Ergonomics) Department and the Rhodes Community Engagement Office (RUCE), as well as the Gary Kirsten Foundation.
