Welcome! Bruchim Habaim

We invite you to discover for yourself why more families are choosing King David.

With core values of inclusivity, egalitarianism and social justice, King David students thrive in a warm and caring educational environment with a focus on academic excellence, strong Jewish identity, student wellbeing, and creative thinking skills for the future.

Principal's Welcome

Bruchim Habaim and welcome to The King David School.

Our School offers an incredible education, equipping our students with the key attributes, skills and knowledge to thrive in the world that they will graduate into. This is achieved in a warm and caring environment in which each student is cherished and recognised for who they are. We focus on fostering our students’ self-confidence and emotional intelligence, supporting them to strive for excellence and use their achievements to create a better world around them.

Our students are immersed in joyous Jewish Life experiences which are delivered in a non-judgmental manner, fully acknowledging, and indeed celebrating, the diversity which is so fundamental to our School community. When you enrol your child at King David, you don’t just join a school, rather, you become part of a thriving community. I urge you to give your child the greatest gift of all – the blessing of a King David education.
