Welcome to The King David School Parents’ Association. Below you will find all the information you need to know who we are and what we do. All parents are encouraged to join the KDSPA and we will always welcome new committee members.
What we do:
The KDSPA has two main functions:
Firstly, we fundraise for major events, services and smaller fundraising activities. Our major events play a pivotal role in our large fundraising activities and these include our annual King’s Carnival and Annual Breakfast events just to name a few as well as smaller events and services such as Tuckshop, Challah deliveries and Art by Kids among many more. All money raised goes straight back to the School to fund various projects, equipment, resources and upgrades to further enhance our beautiful School across all campuses.
Our other major function is to get involved in the community. We are your link to the School and we are here to support our KDS parent community whatever the need may be.
Who are we?
Click on the tab on the left to find out who comprises your KDSPA. Many of our members are longstanding and have seen the School go through significant change from a KDSPA perspective. Others are relatively new and some are brand new to the KDSPA as well as the School. As mentioned, we welcome all new members and encourage everyone to get involved.
When we meet
We meet monthly at members’ homes to discuss various issues affecting our school and to creative and promote fundraising initiatives. It is always a fun meeting with endless ideas flowing and great enthusiasm from all members. At times, we even crack open the champagne bottle to celebrate our wonderful achievements!
How to get involved
You don’t need to be a Committee member to be involved. Every parent of the School is automatically a “member” of the KDSPA in that we are here to support you and will listen and provide guidance on any relevant issue.
Furthermore, there are so many ways to be involved and support your KDSPA. We always need more volunteers to help make our King’s Carnival bigger and better and we are regularly seeking assistance on our other fundraising activities that include Annual KDSPA Breakfast & Trivia Night. We also warmly welcome any new ideas whether fundraising or otherwise.
What we can provide for you!
The opportunity to connect, make wonderful friends and learn what is going on in your child’s school for starters. Did you know that it is a proven fact that where there is a high parental involvement in the school, the students’ overall results are much better? So by becoming involved you are benefitting your children in many valuable ways.
We at the KDSPA strongly believe that your involvement here is what makes our School and our school community unique and our plan for the future is to continue to contribute significantly to the life and welfare of our wonderful School and all its students.
