Each year the KMF awards its scholars for their academic achievements and excellence in their community.
2022 saw incredible achievements by many of our very talented and motivated KMF scholars, and we wish them all the very best for 2023!
The annual KMF Awards Celebration took place at Durbanville Convention Centre on the 18th of February 2023.
We celebrated all our scholars’ achievements, hard work, dedication, and tenacity in 2022. Scholars were celebrated for achievements in the following categories:
This was awarded to one scholar per Grade. These scholars are always willing to assist at KMF functions or workshops. They are always eager to assist their KMF peers. When information is requested from them, they generally respond first. They are dedicated towards their work, always work hard, set a good example and are great role models for other scholars.

The Kay Mason Leadership Award
This award is for the scholar who worked extremely hard the entire year, excelled academically, and found time for extra murals and community work. It is a scholar who sets the example for the rest. This year’s winner was Samantha. She is a role model, a leader and is driven to achieve her goals.
It goes without saying how proud we are of our scholars, especially this year when new challenges so frequently seemed.
