Supporting The King's School
Our culture of philanthropy which underpins the tradition of giving at The King’s School began with the School’s establishment in 1831 and continues today.
Giving ensures the vitality and uniqueness of school life at King's and supports the ongoing development of our unique school campus and programs, adding new chapters to our unique story.

A history of giving
At the centre of our rich heritage is our philanthropic character: our will to ensure that the School more than endures; it leads the way. Many who have come to The King’s School have ensured that they leave it a better place than when they arrived, as demonstrated through their generous gifts and benefactions.
Families have bestowed their own legacy. Scholarships and bursaries are bequeathed and invested.
People have given gates and windows, trees and benches. Others to libraries and pavilions, to laboratories and boarding houses. Rowers give an oar, musicians an instrument. Cattle and livestock, advice, expertise, direction and of course their time.

ensuring our future
The values of The King’s School are foundational to the life of the community. Our values inspire students to adopt a Christian way of living that will support them to make an outstanding impact on society.
In 2022, King’s added the value of Gratitude to encourage students to celebrate excellence in others, remain humble and demonstrate thankfulness.
As part of our commitment to the value of Gratitude, The King’s School is pleased to launch an annual event to be named ‘Gratitude Day’. On Thursday 16 June 2022, our School community will cultivate the joy of being thankful through our very first day of Gratitude.
Gratitude Day will form part of our important philanthropic Annual Giving Program, but most importantly, it will encourage our community to celebrate what we are grateful for.
