KIMBERLEY Boys’ High School recently held its 134th Anniversary celebrations in a lively week-long programme that wound up last weekend.
The event was held under difficult Covid-19 pandemic conditions, and was the first Founder’s Celebration for headmaster Xolile Taba.
On this occasion of the school’s birthday Taba said that he would focus on taking the school from “Good to Great”, and bring progressive transformation to the school. To that end, as a start, a number of facilities upgrading and renovating projects have been embarked upon.
The headmaster said that the main entrance to the school is in the process of being upgraded to provide an access and an exit way through a boom gate, controlling vehicles entering and exiting the school.
Also, a proper security booth fitted with a toilet and electricity is being constructed giving dignity and shelter to security personnel who man the school gate day and night. Additionally, a separate paved walkway has been built to prevent learners from unsafely sharing the same thoroughfare with vehicles.
Added to this a new double-decker school bus was purchased out of school funds and was delivered recently.
