Starlight Production 2014

A year ago, knowing that we were celebrating our 30th birthday in 2014, I began to look for a suitable script that would reflect our values and showcase the God-given gifts and talents of our learners. I couldn’t find what I was looking for and so I asked Dominic Siaki, who matriculated in 2012, if he would rise to the challenge of writing a script for our major production. He was brave enough to come on board and contacted his mentor, Duncan Bouwer, who produced Godspell for our 25th birthday. (Dominic was a member of the cast of Godspell, as was Bubele Booi, another past learner).

COMMUNITY SERVICE

At The King’s School we encourage “other-centredness” and there are many opportunities for every learner to be involved in community service. This is one of the ways that we flesh out our core value of servanthood and live out our motto which is to “to make a difference”.

CANSA SPRAYATHON and SHAVEATHON

Annually, we host a CANSA Sprayathon at school and also take part in the CANSA Shaveathon that takes place at various shopping centres in our area. Our dedicated team of Gr10s work hard during these events as all monies raised go towards supporting cancer patients. With thousands of Rands raised on an annual basis, this initiative is something that our learners not only enjoy but are extremely proud of.

CASUAL DAY

Each September we support the nationwide Casual Day.  Charities throughout the country are supported by donations gathered on this day, particularly organisations that help children and young adults with mental and physical disabilities.  The funds we raised over the last 2 years were donated to Pathways Roodepoort which is a stimulation centre for children and young adults with various disabilities. They are a non-profit organisation and rely on fundraising and donations to keep the centre thriving. In 2013 we raised R2535.
