Celebrating 40 Years in 2023
24 Feb 2023

Dear families,

In 2023, King’s is blessed to be celebrating our 40th Anniversary. We will begin celebrating this exciting milestone in our ‘Anniversary Week’ - held in Week 9 of Term 1 - giving our students and families the opportunity to celebrate our 40-year history together. We have many student events within our Anniversary Week, including a 40th Helicopter Photo, Tree Planting of 40 trees, House Colours Day and an Anniversary Parade.

Festivities for the week will culminate on the weekend of Saturday, 1 April with a free family fun event on Wynn Vale Oval from 4:00pm - featuring show rides, side shows, live entertainment, food trucks and a firework display. Please see the flyer below for more information about this family event and be sure to put this date in your calendar - it will be a celebration to remember!

There will be many other events to celebrate our 40th Anniversary throughout the year and some special community events, including a Cabaret Night in Term 2 and Golf Classic on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in the September break. Please keep an eye on your emails, our weekly King's Community eNewsletter and social media for more information about these events as they approach through the year.

We look forward to marking this milestone year as a community; praising God for His blessings over our School, celebrating the Vision of Faith our School’s Founders had some 40 years ago, and looking to the future as we broaden our vision into the Adelaide Hills this year.
