Twice a term our classroom teachers select students that they feel best reflect one of our Foundational Values. These students are honoured at a Foundational Values Asssembly where we also showcase some of our wonderfully gifted and talented.
Not only do we honour those selected by our classroom teachers but we also honour students, through our Parade of Champions. It is also a wonderful opportunity for our student leaders to practice their public speaking.
So far this term we have been blessed to honour all our Foundational Values recipients and see performances from Keeva Gilroy (yr 5) and Dylan Mapfumo (yr 4) and celebrate our champions.
Thank you to Officer Carey from Qld Police Service who came and spoke at both assemblies about "Safe 5", the 5 safe people that our King's Kids can go and speak to if they need to
Each Foundational Values Assembly we are excited to honour those King's Kids that are excelling with a "Parade of Champions". This assembly we honour Paul Hooper (BMX)
Paul has completed five out six shootout series (last one being in May) so far this year and just this weekend Paul completed a back to back round at Caboolture and Sunshine Coast Yadina.
Paul did exceptionally well both days coming in the top three and just yesterday he made the semi finals so such a big improvement and achievement for Paul representing Beenleigh BMX Club in the 8s.
Paul came 2nd twice and 1st once made it into the semi finals and also had the top speed of crossing the finish line in 39 seconds which was the fastest of the day in his age group which he was very proud of himself.
Both long days but very worth it in the long run.
Paul is thriving at school and now in Bmxing as he is starting to get use to his daily routine of attending three days of bmx training in the evenings and waking early to catch the school bus, making sure he's read his book and completed his homework.
Paul will also says a little prayer before he races each time, says "the lord is helping me mum".
Paul will also be attending state series rounds in June July, August and September, then onto the National Championships in Shepparton end of October.
Each Foundational Values Assembly we are excited to honour those King's Kids that are excelling with a "Parade of Champions". This assembly we honour Paul Hooper (BMX) and Xander Hunt (Artistic Rollerskating)
Skate Queensland held the 2023 artistic roller skating state championships from Friday the 28th through to Sunday the 30th of April at Mt Warren Sports Centre. Xander competed in his first state championship in the promotional boys figure event and finished with a silver medal. He has now been selected to represent Queensland at the National Championships to be held in Western Australia in the June holidays.
Our College held an Anzac Commemoration Service to honour the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom and peace.
Our College held a commemorative Anzac ceremony on Monday 24 April, ahead of Anzac Day this year. The solemn service encouraged King's students and staff to reflect on the great legacy we have received by the incredible sacrifice of the courageous men and women who gave their lives in battle for our freedom. We were blessed to have Mrs Kerry Menke from Logan Village RSL in attendance as one of our guest speakers along with representatives from the King's Christian College Board, King's Church, Noah's Ark, Primary and parents from our King's Community.
Flowers and wreaths were laid by our special guests and our students as a way to remember those who have lost their lives serving Australia in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
We will remember them. Lest we forget.

Mother's Day is always such a special highlight in the college's calendar and this year was no exception. This year, while we are still a small campus, we changed it up, and had all siblings attend a session with mum so she could experience pampering overload. We thank you all for everything you do for your family and for your extended King's family of mums.
Mums were also treated to a card, scrumptious gluten free donut and a complimentary coffee voucher from Zarraffas Bethania, thanks to our Pimpama P&F. We hope the mums enjoyed their treats.
Yr 6 Local Govt Visit
Year 6 are learning about different types of government. This week our local Councillor, Mr Scott Bannan came to speak about all things council and different levels of government. The students came prepared with questions ranging from "What motivates you?" and "How is a Councillor elected?" to "What happens if you aren't re-elected? and the funniest, "What's your weirdest food combination".
The student's favourite part was learning about all the great initiatives Mr Bannan has been involved in bringing to the community and shaking his hand at the end, we wish him well on his DAKAR Rally adventure in 2024.
