Year 4 camp is focused on building GRIT - strength of character! For many campers it was their first time away from home and that definitely required lots of courage to be out of your comfort zone. The teachers were buzzing at the end of such an amazing camp. Mrs Fife said, "We were so proud of our students who displayed lots of courage to conquer new activities." With determination and resilience in abundance, the days were packed with sunshine and fun and ended with memorable evening devotions.
Mya Marui-James and Rhiannon Parker from 4B have shared their memories from camp.
MYA MARIU-JAMES 4B - Year four camp was the best time ever. I loved having fun in the water and on the beach, conquering fears but most of all learning about God. The first night Ps Joel taught us that in life there will be hard times, but God is always with you. On that very night, lots of people surrendered their hearts to Jesus. On the second night, Ps Wes taught us that no matter what you do, God will always love us. I know that a lot of fears were conquered, from the fear of heights on the ‘Giant Swing’ to being away from our parents for the first time. Everyone had a thrilling time. With everything we did, like body boarding and ‘Team Rescue’, we gave all the glory to God.
RHIANNON PARKER 4B - Camp was so much fun! It encouraged everyone to step out of their comfort zones, some people even made new friends. There were so many great activities to do. We all loved it so much that we want to go again! The best thing was learning about God, that we can trust Him and that He is always there for us. My favourite part of camp, was devotions because we were able to worship God through songs. Ps Joel and Ps Wes came and it was so wonderful to have them speak to us. I also really liked the activities. They were all so challenging, especially the ‘Giant Swing. It really did test you. Year four camp was thrilling! I can’t wait to go on another camp next year.
Mr Mathew Mene is one of our chaplains working with upper primary students at Reedy Creek. Mr Mene shares a moment from his week.
Gardening with some Year 6 students was a great opportunity to speak into the lives of some of our boys. As a chaplain I believe that encouragement, no matter how big or small, can have a huge impact. In this particular project a group of boys assisted me in transplanting some saplings into a new environment. We made a ring of saplings, each one representing the students, and placed a large plant in the centre to represent Jesus' love. One of the students approached me during the gardening project and said "I really do believe that Jesus loves me." This group of boys thoroughly enjoyed the project and better understood Jesus unending love for all of us. It is such an honour and a privilege to use God's creation to be able to share the love of Christ with these awesome students. 1 Corinthians 13.
King's have a big team of chaplains, led by Guy Ormerod (High School) and Peter Malcolm (Primary School). Chaplains ‘champion’ our student body, providing pastoral care and extra support for any student needing a ‘listening ear’ or specific encouragement. We also assist with running various programs that enrich school life such as chapels, interactive Christian Living classes, the HUB (lunchtime activities) and leadership training for boys and girls. With a strong emphasis on character development at King's our team of chaplains lead students in discovering Jesus and how to model our lives on Him.
We look forward to introducing you to more of our chaplain team in the coming weeks.
All items will be sold for 50c, $1 or $2. Please bring coins only on Wednesday. We can't wait to share King's love with our Missions partners.
The atmosphere that the Year 12 Music students brought to the stage captivated both the audience and performers themselves; Soirée 2017 was a success. It was a splendid evening of casual laughter, light refreshments and anticipation for the refined acts of the night. Genres and style varied from performance to performance bringing unique flavours to the evening and exhibiting the individual personalities of each performer. The night was simply a success.

This term Year 8 Science students have been learning about body systems. Working in Project Based Learning (PBL) groups, the students were asked to demonstrate their learning by determining which body system was affected by disease in their allocated 'patients'. Students had the opportunity to present their findings to doctors, during class, on Monday. The doctors were all very impressed with the knowledge of our students. Thank you to the doctors who volunteered their time to give our students the opportunity to test their answers in the 'real' world.
CONGRATULATIONS to 2B, 3A, 4B and 5CP who won pizza parties for the largest (and fastest) collection of carnival goodies! Thank you so much for the awesome contributions from all our King's families, especially the classes we celebrated. With your help, our Carnival Day was a HUGE success! The children loved their pizzas and we had lots of smiles and full tummies afterwards!
We spoiled our groundsmen with a lunch to celebrate their willing hearts to always help us and have a smile on their faces whilst doing so. We LOVE our groundsmen and we thank them for always being available to support us whenever we need them.
They are some of the best people you will find at King’s! THANK YOU!
