During the school closures, all King’s students are continuing their education doing classes at home. All King’s students will be able to get their credits and will be well prepared for the coming grade, or for our grads, for first year university. We are so grateful to our amazing faculty who are ensuring that all classes are being held every day at the regular times by using virtual meetings, Microsoft teams, phone calls, texts and emails.

Valentine’s Day was so much fun at King’s. The elementary students organized a dress down day (one could wear red, pink, or white) and the sale of Oreograms (for 10 cents each, one could send an Oreo to other students or to a teacher to celebrate Valentine’s Day) in support of our sister school in Cameroon. The student committee spent an entire day packaging the Oreograms as over 3,000 Oreos were sold! The elementary students also organized the number of games for everyone – teachers and high school students included. A great day was had by all.
The Grade 9 and 10 Green Industries class spent a day at the Kortright Centre studying climate change and touring two examples of Net Zero homes. It was fascinating to learn about what could be done to reduce our own carbon footprint in our homes.
