Senior Kindergarten Dance Excursion

On Thursday, 60 extremely enthusiastic kindergarten children boarded The King David School bus for our very first Senior Kinder excursion.
The short bus trip took us to The Space Dance & Arts Centre for a 45-minute dance workshop.

Our dance teacher, Hayley, was patient as our over-excited classes tried their best to calm down and listen to her instructions! She led us through a number of fun games, including pretending to be animals.
We stretched our bodies and then played a ...

Kibbutz Experience!

Some of the students in their kibbutz lessons at the Southwick Campus today got to experience real life on a kibbutz.
Sometimes on a kibbutz a ‘Gius’ is called and that means everyone has to stop what they are doing and help with an urgent job.
The students stopped weeding and planting and turned their attention to shucking corn for the Fete and they absolutely loved it. See you at the fete.

Year 6 Camp

Year 6 students have come back from camp exhausted but very satisfied from the range of activities they had on offer in and around Blairgowrie!

Junior Kinder PACE Program

Before Shabbat, Junior Kinder students and their families met to discuss special rituals that are done before we go to bed and when we wake up in the morning.

Everyone came to the PACE workshop dressed in their pajamas, and brought their favourite sleeping friend and pillow.

Families listened to an English/Hebrew reading of The Very Hungry Catapillar, then talked about our special rituals before we sleep and when we wake up.

We drew pictures of these rituals on pillow cases and learned ...

Year 7 Camp

The focus for our Year 7 students this year is to develop team work and respect for themselves, each other, their community and the environment.

All of this and more was accomplished by the students on the Year 7 camp held at Anglesea from the 18th to the 22nd of February.

Starting with a walk from Bells Beach, across the cliff tops and beaches, through the tea trees and sand we staggered into the ‘Eumerella’ Scout camp on a day when the ...
