The IEB (Independent Examination Board) offers a Grade 12 exit examination that equips pupils for admission to all South African and overseas universities. At Kingswood, every child is encouraged to enjoy his or her sporting experience, which is hoped will lead to a life-long involvement in physical activity. “We believe spor t is a great vehicle t h at can further develop character in boys and girls,” the school s ay s . There is a place for every child in the Kingswood sporting context – from the child who has aspirations of playing professional sport to the one who may be less able but is just as enthusiastic. Kingswood also has a rich tradition of world-class music and art departments and, creative drama productions. Pupils are also exposed to a variety of different activities outside regular subject material. The purpose of this is to broaden their skills base, interests, knowledge and life experience in order to feed back into the school’s curriculum. While much has changed on the Kingswood campus over the years, the school’s pupils are still known for their spirit of courage, d e t e r m i n at i o n , generosity and happiness that infuses life at the college. The warm, family atmosphere of Kingswood College is distinctive and the c o - e d u c at i o n a l environment, in which boys and girls can mature together from pre-primary through to matric or the bridging year, gives pupils the chance to develop healthy, balanced attitudes and relationships, which will equip them once they leave school. Kingswood College strives to be recognised locally, nationally and internationally as an excellent Methodist School and as a t ransforming influence in society, educating pupils for l i fe .

Ta s h ’s has become a vibrant venue since Tasha Kenny became the tenant at the old Spur venue, previously known as Barnacles. It’s a large venue with an open space for tables and dancing, and a bar along the wall opposite the stage. Unorthodox Jukebox Volume 2, opened with the theme from Star Wars, with red, green and purple strobe lighting, counting down to Scott Har vey’s Jailhouse Rock instrumental and Tut ti Frut ti, complete with hip rolls, shoulders and hands on the butt. It was red-hot musical mayhem on Saturday night, starting quietly, getting faster, and swelling and peaking around 9pm. With the green stage lighting changing to blue, Harvey sang a very sexy rendition of Leave My Blues Behind. Badenhorst and Du Randt came on stage with canes, adding to the visual delight. There was belly-dancing action and Du Randt did a great job singing These Boots Were Made for Walking. The mood of the audience was salubrious, despite Knowles’ comedy – or perhaps because of it. The running joke in the show was the aging sex symbol passing on the baton to a younger one. Knowles belted out If You Could Read My Mind, in smooth tones, using his baritone vocals to best effect. “I feel like a woman,” he quips. “Bit late to get one. Doesn’t happen very often. Used to when I was a sex symbol.” He really knows how to schmooze and cajole an audience. “I don’t mind if you don’t. We don’t judge here. That’s apparently God’s job. He’s going to send you to hell.” During intermission, Tash’s delicious burgers were served – a choice of chicken or beef. The chicken was succulent, the relish more than adequate and the fresh lettuce and tomato just right. The slap chips were also nice and crispy. Harvey sang a medley of Elvis songs – All Shook Up, and Don’t Be Cruel, from his breakthrough year, 1956, until a decade or two later, when it was all downhill after that. When other people were writing songs about popcorn, Little Richard, Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry started writing songs with meaning, along with the likes of Bob Dylan and the Beatles. Elvis met Priscilla in 1966, married in 1967 and divorced in 1972 when this song fell in his lap: “Maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I could have, you were always on my mind, you were always on my mind”. The mood changed with Wake up Little Susie when Rob rejoined Scott on stage. They sang American Pie, although Mr Bojangles would have been perfect. After a pleasant show, the downer coming home was to find our property had been burgled. I hope the culprits get some Jailhouse Rock.
