Bruchim Habaim and welcome to The King David School website.

Our School offers the finest education that equips our students with the key attributes, skills and knowledge to thrive in the world that they will graduate into.

This is done in a warm and haimish (homely) environment in which each student is cherished.

We focus on fostering our students’ self confidence and emotional intelligence, to strive for excellence and use their achievements to create a better Australia, and indeed, a better world around them. Our values of Modern Thinking Judaism inform every aspect of our School life.

As you explore the website, I encourage you to take note of the extraordinary opportunities on offer both in and out of the classroom.  You can read about The King David School’s excellent VCE results, our outstanding Visual and Performing Arts provision, our world class robotics program and our commitment to sporting success. Through our wonderful Jewish Life team, the School provides meaningful, engaging and positive encounters with Judaism and Israel and enhances our students’ Jewish and Zionist identity.

The School’s founders, Isador Magid AO, and Rabbi John Levi AO DD both stand as role models for our students and teachers alike by virtue of their dedication to learning and enlightenment. So too, does my predecessor, Michele Bernshaw who has, with her incredible dedication over 14 plus years of service, fostered an environment of community, which promotes critical enquiry, positive relationships and the embracing of difference.

I invite you to book a tour and learn more about the delight of a Modern Thinking Jewish education.
