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.

Schooling is an integral part of our lives, establishing the foundation for our future success. I am proud that at King David, we prepare our students to thrive in the world they will graduate into, ensuring they are collaborative, critical and creative thinkers.

Our values of inclusivity, egalitarianism, and social justice ensure that students develop emotional intelligence. Students are encouraged to use their achievements to create a better Australia.

From celebrating our Chagim (holidays) to debating Jewish ethics to researching Jewish history, our students experience Judaism as a rich and moving tradition that is relevant to their lives. Our Jewish Life team facilitates hands-on learning that strengthens our students' Jewish and Zionist identities.

As you look on the website, I encourage you to discover our educational philosophy and the extraordinary opportunities on offer both in and out of the classroom. From exceptional outdoor education, to musicals, debating, coding contests and more, our students are able to challenge themselves in a range of environments.

Our School's founders, Isador Magid AO and Rabbi Dr John Levi AC, stand as role models for our students and teachers alike by virtue of their dedication to learning and enlightenment. The school environment they created continues to this day, promoting critical inquiry, positive relationships and the embracing of difference.

It is a privilege to lead Australia's only Progressive Jewish school. I invite you to book a tour and learn more about the King David difference.
