Gen 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God is our wonderful Creator.

We are His masterpiece. The truth is, God created mankind to be dependent on Him for all things. During this term the children will learn that we are created by God for His purposes; that He wants us to have fellowship with Him; that He loves us unconditionally; that God is always patient and kind and is always in control, even though it doesn’t look like it. God does have a plan for each of our lives. God bless!

Dear School Community,
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on our collective journey and express my gratitude and pride in our incredible school community.

The past term has been filled with growth, learning, and unforgettable experiences for our students, teachers, and staff alike. Through the challenges we faced and the triumphs we celebrated, we continued to demonstrate the resilience and dedication that make our school truly exceptional. Our pupils have once again demonstrated their commitment to their education and personal development. They have embraced new challenges, engaged in meaningful projects, and shown remarkable progress in their academic pursuits. Their creativity, curiosity, and enthusiasm are a testament to the outstanding education they receive here at King’s School.

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to our outstanding educators and staff who work tirelessly to create a loving, caring, nurturing and stimulating environment for our pupils. Your passion, dedication, and unwavering support are instrumental in shaping the future of our pupils. Your relentless pursuit of excellence is truly inspiring.

Parents and guardians, your partnership with us is invaluable. Your involvement in your children’s education and your support for our school’s mission enrich the learning experience for all. We appreciate your trust and collaboration as we work together to help our students thrive.

As we look ahead to the coming term, we remain committed to providing an exceptional educational experience that fosters academic excellence, character development, and personal growth. We are excited about the opportunities and challenges that the future holds, and we are confident that, together, we can achieve even greater heights.

In closing, I want to express my sincere appreciation for your ongoing support and dedication to our school. Our school community is a remarkable one, and it is the combined effort of every member that makes it so.

I wish you all a relaxing and enjoyable break as we prepare for the new term. May it be filled with rest, rejuvenation, and quality time spent with loved ones.

Yours in education

This term our Biblical worldview focus will be on STEWARDSHIP. This theme will help us know God and be restored in harmony with creation.  

1 Jn 1:9 ‘But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

We will be helping our children to understand what it means to be faithful, obedient as well as the benefits of being diligent, orderly, resourceful, creative, responsible and how to be thrifty.

These are qualities are sorely lacking in our modern, consumer driven society.  We struggle to accept the fact that God is faithful and that always has our best interests at heart.

God is sovereign over His creation and sustains it for His glory and purposes.
