It is difficult to believe that second term is nearly over and we are more than half-way through the school year. I give thanks to our loving Heavenly Father for continued growth in enrolments, for dedicated staff, well-behaved students and a very supportive parent body. To God alone be the Glory!
Principal’s Parent Evenings
It was great to see so many parents attend the first Principal’s Parent Evening on the 24 May 2015. I was humbled to receive so many positive comments about The King’s College and look forward to developing even stronger links with parents to make The King’s College an even better place. I will be working both weeks of the holidays, so please don’t hesitate to make an appointment to see me to discuss any matter related to your child’s education. The next Principal’s Parent Evening will take place on Friday 24 July 2015. I have invited Mr. Adam Przytula, a School Chaplain and a regular presenter with the Christian organisation “Armed-for-Life.” Adam will be talking about Cyber Safety in the home, focusing on what parents can do to educate their children on this important issue.
Semester One Reports
Semester 1 Reports for students in Pre-Primary to Year 12, will be posted home on Friday 10 July 2015. If you do not receive your child’s report in the second week of the school holidays, please contact the College immediately. If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s report, please make a time via the front office to meet with the appropriate teacher.
Children’s Crossing – Bertram Road
The College has submitted an application to the Children’s Crossing & Road Safety Committee, for a children’s crossing to be established on Bertram Road, directly outside The King’s College. Surveys are currently being conducted at the nominated location and a report will then be forwarded to the Children’s Crossings and Road Safety Committee for their consideration and recommendations. I am very confident that approval will be granted for a children’s crossing to be established on Bertram Road, near Parkfield Boulevard. A sincere thank you to all those parents who assisted in formulating the proposal for a children’s crosswalk.
“ONESIE” FREE DRESS DAY
All students from Kindergarten to Year 12 will celebrate a Free Dress Day on Friday 7 August 2015. Students and staff will be allowed to wear their favourite “onesie” and bring a gold coin to help raise money to buy sleeping bags for homeless people in the Kwinana/Rockingham area. If students do not own such attire, then they are allowed to wear their pyjamas on the day.
When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. When you beat the olives from your trees, do not go over the branches a second time. Leave what remains for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. When you harvest the grapes in your vineyard, do not go over the vines again. Leave what remains for the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. That is why I command you to do this.
Deuteronomy 24:19-21 (NIV)
I pray that all our students and staff have a safe and restful holiday. Students are due back at school on Wednesday 22 July 2015.
