On Monday evening, 11 October, the Grade 8 to 12 boarders at Union’s Arthur Kingwill House enjoyed their annual house dinner and awards evening on the fields in front of the Tony Burrell Union.
The weather played along beautifully for this auspicious event, themed ‘Under the Stars’, with fairy lights and great camaraderie creating a wonderful ambiance.
The event was an opportunity for the boarding house’s staff and learners to reflect back on the year, to celebrate and recognize the immense growth each boarder experienced in this time, as well as to say farewell to the matric group.
It was a delight to see the learners dressed in their finery – they represented themselves very well and enjoyed a truly memorable evening.
To start the evening, Mr Donald Kingwill, Superintendent of Arthur Kingwill House, welcomed the guests and thanked all those who had contributed to the success and happiness of the past year, particularly the 2021 Grade 12s and prefect body. They have led the boarding house with quiet dignity and a passion for the school which doesn’t go unnoticed.
