King’s is passionate about music education and the musical development of its students.
Year 3 students began their journey into instrumental music this term when they were allocated either a guitar or keyboard. Students will learn this instrument during Semester 2.
Mr Davis, Executive Principal, has generously authorised the school to pay for these instruments, which the students will be able to keep at the conclusion of the program to continue their music learning journey. Thank you very much, Mr Davis.
Our future worship leaders are on their way!

King's recently received our results from this year's NAPLAN tests and the table shows the 2021 State average, National average and King’s average. Our results are above National and State averages for almost every category, which is particularly commendable as students in Southern states are older when they sit the test due to starting school ages. We enrol students of all academic aptitudes, yet King's has achieved results similar to those of academically selective schools. We congratulate our students on their exceptional results.
School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS)
Did you know you may be eligible for government assistance with bus fares to and from school?
The Queensland Government provides assistance with school transport costs for eligible students travelling to and from school under the School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS).
Students without a state school in their local area may be eligible for distance-based assistance if their nearest state primary school is more than 3.2km away.
If students reside too close to their school to qualify for distance-based assistance, they may still be eligible for STAS assistance if they are listed as a dependent on the applicant’s Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, or if they are under a Child Protection Order by Child Safety Services.
Detailed information on school transport assistance is provided on the Queensland Government website (Opens in new window). This includes information on the STAS terms and conditions, applicant eligibility requirements, types of assistance that are included or excluded from the online application, and how to apply online.
Ms Desirae Glover joined us this term to teach Prep (PAS), replacing Mrs Vanessa Smart.
I have been a teacher for almost 10 years now and enjoy it immensely. Prior to becoming a teacher, I was in Human Resources where I worked in both public and private sectors.
I have taught a variety of grades, most recently Year One for the last four years. So I am most confident to be teaching Prep as I know where students need to be to begin Year One.
I have two amazing children - Isabella and Lachlan. Isabella is in Year 12 and Lachlan is in Year 10. I am a founding parishioner at St Matthew's Anglican Church, Upper Coomera - part of Gold Coast North Anglican Diocese.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and love spending time with nature - exploring God's beautiful creations. I have a passion for music and also dabble in some painting when I get the opportunity.
One of my favourite Bible verses that I live by is Proverbs 31:25 - "She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future." This passage alone has seen me through many challenges and with God's strength, love and grace I overcame. I look forward to meeting you and teaching your little blessings and further developing their Literacy and Numeracy fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding.

King’s Christian College Logan Village held a 'Colours of India' free dress day in support of Rock High School, its ‘sister school’ in Hyderabad, India.
Students wore the colours of the Indian flag (orange, green and white) and some even hand-painted their own T-shirts with the flag.
Parents also got involved by donating cupcakes to the cause and helped prepare the sausage sizzle for students to enjoy.
The whole school community – students, staff and parents – worked together to make the day a success and were very excited to raise $1,138.
Over the years, King's staff (including Group Head of Primary Lorraine Oswald and Primary Receptionist Katinka Niemeijer) have made trips to Rock High School to work alongside the teachers and bless them with training, resources and encouragement. Some high school students from King’s Reedy Creek and Pimpama campuses have also accompanied staff on these trips to help at Rock High School in any way they can.
“India is doing it tough at the moment after the new wave of COVID19. We are so happy to be a ray of hope to the students and staff of Rock High School and show our support. We have made some beautiful connections with Rock High’s students and staff and it feels good to provide some practical help, so they know they’re not alone. We are all in this together,” said Mrs Niemeijer.
“We so appreciate King’s parents getting behind ‘Colours of India’. It is also a really valuable lesson to the students about being outward focussed and caring for others.”
