'In and Around School' site - The part of our web that we dedicate to our kids and their learning

 With the shifts in Information & Communication Technology (ICT), we have seen the rise of two important players in the mobile computing world.

Apple is cornering the market with its iPad technology and Google is taking giant leaps into in a variety of different ventures.
At Kyalami Preparatory School we are embracing both international giants in an attempt to stay relevant and current. Our iPads are each sitting with a wide range of educational apps and the productivity apps, including Keynote, Numbers and Pages, are creating a buzz in the classroom after years of Office domination. Google Sites has become an integral part of our website layout. Google Calendar plays a significant role in our booking of Facilitation Rooms and iPads. Let's not forget Google Search and Gmail which remains firmly entrenched in K.P.S. culture.

We have not forgotten our friends at Microsoft and our Windows network is continuously upgraded to improve reliability, security, automation and administrative control.

David Hala - Headmaster Kyalami Preparatory School

Headmaster’s Welcome

On my first visit to Kyalami Preparatory School, I was greeted by confident and happy children. This warm and welcoming approach was more spontaneous in comparison to what I had been accustomed to and made a favourable impression on me. I believe that in order to remain motivated and engaged in their academic, sporting and cultural activities, children need to be happy.

As the Headmaster of the School I am passionate about making the learning environment exciting and fun, where every child feels a strong sense of belonging. Our unique caring and nurturing educational programme recognizes children for their personal differences and provide opportunities for them to grow and develop as individuals.

Our committed staff will guide our children to show good judgement, perseverance and creative thinking to prepare them for College and life in general. A strong sense of community emphasises caring for others and developing global citizens who feel the need to contribute to the greater community in which they live.

Developing a growth mindset is an integral part of preparing our children for the future. Our aim is to ensure that our children are confident and have the ability to adapt to a rapidly changing world by embracing the challenges ahead of them and recognizing the opportunities that will unfold in the future.

I invite you to visit our School to see why we make a difference in each and every one of our children’s lives.

 KPS 3

Kyalami Schools (NPC), provides an outstanding quality of education to all its pupils. Its identity as a 'Thinking School' is at the heart of its work, whether it is encouraging children to think about others or to think things out for themselves.

A unique ethos of aspiration, reflection and improvement permeate the schools at all levels. Staff and pupils are receiving a very special opportunity to learn about real life skills, values, how to think and question effectively and how to prepare for a happy and successful life.  Our outstandingly successful schools fully meet the aims of Kyalami Schools’ challenging vision statement by being a ‘creative and thinking school’ developing its pupils to become global achievers.

The focus on 'thinking skills' across the schools plays a significant role in teaching pupils how to learn effectively. It is an important factor in the good progress they make and in their preparation for high school and later life.

What is a Thinking SchoolThinking Schools South Africa copy

TSSA defines a Thinking School as one of an educational community in which all members share a common commitment to giving regular, careful thought to everything that takes place.

About Thinking Schools International 

Thinking Schools International (TSI) was established in 2010 and is a partnership between Kestrel Education in the UK and Designs for Thinking in the US.  The aim – to facilitate a whole school approach to the development of pupils’ thinking skills for organisations across the globe who are committed to developing 21st Century Learning.

“The reason I was drawn to Thinking Schools South Africa (TSSA) is because of this novel idea that in matters social as well as educational, the best tool at our disposal as human beings is to think our way out of problems; far too much emphasis in South African education is on coverage of content and too little on the underlying thinking skills crucial for understanding complex scholarly and social problems” 
                                                                             -Professor Jonathan Jansen, TSSA Patron
