Welcome!

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

Principal's Welcome

Bruchim Habaim and welcome to The King David School.

Our School offers the finest 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.

From 18 months, our Early Learning Centre offers play-based learning experiences with a focus on developing executive function skills and a love of Jewish traditions.

From Prep to Year 5, our students develop a love of learning with strong foundation skills and the opportunity to ask questions and challenge themselves in a safe and nurturing environment.

In Years 6 to 12, students become independent learners with a focus on creativity and collaboration. Students are encouraged to explore their passions with an extensive range of co-curricular opportunities.

With an emphasis on the importance of thinking skills, King David’s approach to education is based on educational neuroscience with the aim of maximising student engagement at all stages of their learning.

King David welcomes families from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds. A highly engaging and interactive Jewish Life program throughout the School provides students with the tools to help them decide how they would like to live their Jewish lives.

Emotional intelligence, friendship and the importance of mindfulness are a focus for students across the whole school with dedicated wellbeing classes in every year level.
