Alumni Events

Each year we hold 5, 10 and 20 year reunions. It is a great opportunity to see old classmates and teachers and reminisce about the old days together.
This year, due to restrictions we prepared a Virtual Alumni Reunion. Links were sent to graduates from Class of 2000, 2001, 2010, 2011, 2015 and 2016 on Sunday 17 October. If you did not receive an email and were part of these cohorts, please email alumni@kds.vic.edu.au

Remember how much fun it was at school camp? We’re always looking for enthusiastic camp leaders to guide and challenge our current students. Grow your leadership skills and have some fun. Contact us for more information of how you can get involved and give back to the School.

Now Live!

Class of 2000, 2001, 2010, 2011, 2015 and 2016 now have access to Virtual Alumni Reunion pages. If you are part of these cohorts and have not received the link, please email alumni@kds.vic.edu.au.
