More about

Samkelo

Samkelo Ngubane loves the cultural side of life. While he is as proud as any KES boys of the schools sporting achievements, what he really enjoys about school life is the opportunity to be in the music society, to participate in drama and to play in the pipe band.
He is a talented musician and the flute is his speciality. He studies music and passed the Associate Board of the Royal Music Society grade 4 exams and plays flute in the school’s music society. He says he practices every day for at least half an hour, sometimes longer. It takes up a lot of his time but it is his passion. The bagpipes are a woodwind instrument like the flute, so he is good at making them sound. The keys are totally different and so the fingering is a challenge, but he is keen to master it.
Although by his own admission he is not a great sportsman, he does participate. He plays basketball in one of the lower teams in the summer and in the winter, he plays rugby.

Samkelo was at Pridwin Prep school on a bursary. One of his friends told him he was coming to King Edward in grade 8. He lives in Alex with his mother and she could not afford to send him to the school. Luckily, he was offered financial support though the TAG Foundation. He said it was the best thing that could have happened to him. He loves being a KES boy and has made good friends. He believes he is getting a great education and feels the teachers, discipline and traditions are what make the school great.
He went on to say the teachers really care about the boys and discipline is good because it prepares boys for life beyond school. He believes punctuality and good manners are essential for success and those things are insisted on at KES. The traditions give him a sense of where he fits in in the school’s history and reinforces the brotherhood that makes KES so special.
