At the King’s College and Preparatory School we are intentionally a Christ-centred culture where each individual can move from a place of feeling a sense of value and belonging to becoming who they are created to be, and through which they realise their God-given gifts and talents along the way. To help us create this environment there are five essentials on which we place a high value:
We believe that the greatest knowledge someone should posses is a knowledge that they are fearfully and wonderfully created in the image of God. A person’s value should stem from who they are, not what they do. Helping our learners discover the value that they carry as their primary identity is of first importance. All other knowledge is built upon this foundation.
Integrity of heart forms one of the cornerstones for the development of steadfast personal character. We place a high value on integrity and respect for others in all of our interactions, whether in word or deed. It is the golden thread which weaves through the moral fabric of our lives, our families and our communities.
All progress depends on the constant desire for and pursuit of new thought. We understand that we are preparing our learners for future jobs that do not yet exist and because of this we believe in encouraging curiosity and creativity in the manner in which we learn, use technology, and collaborate with those around us.
We desire to see meaningful growth in the life of every individual we interact with. By creating a positive environment which engages individuals in a journey of lifelong learning they are empowered to discover new areas for personal growth, be it in the classroom, on the sports field, on the stage performing, or in a leadership discussion.
In line with our vision of being a blessing to the local community, the city, the nation of South Africa and the nations of the world, we place a high value on creating opportunities for individuals to make a difference by contributing to establishing hope, dignity and honour in the lives of all, in whatever way, small or large.
