Success at European Student Convention 2017

 European Student Convention 2017

Christian ESC 2017 Pierce ESC 2017 

Ben ESC 2017Tobi ESC 2017

We are so proud of our students. The whole school worked together fundraising to send four seniors for a week over the Easter holiday to European Student Convention. The students ran 1,200 m several times a week from January until the end of March and the collective effort was the equivalent of running from Manchester to Brussels. The students who went did not disappoint their fellow fundraisers.  We are delighted with the results below.  Added to this, the students’ behaviour was exemplary and they made many friends and had a great week away at Millfield in Somerset. This is a beautiful setting with Olympic standard accommodation, a theatre and a concert hall.

Four students entered 41 events and won 25 medals:

9 Bronzes

9 Silvers

7 Golds and one plaque.

Academics: Social Studies Exhibit (bronze); Bible Bowl, Linear PowerPoint (silver)

Christian Service: Golden Lamp (3 x bronze, 1 x silver)

Harvest and Food Banks

Every Autumn Term we celebrate together with a Harvest Festival.  We share a meal made from the vegetables that the families have brought in and we take other food to the local charities. Last year a local food bank was very grateful to receive our help and this year we will be collecting for the food bank again.

Celebrating 30 years of the King of Kings School

This is such an exciting year for us.  We praise God for being with us for 30 years, from the 22nd September 1986, when the King of Kings School opcropped-picture-for-schools-30th-birthdayened.  We have had fun celebrating and our celebrations will continue for a little while yet!  The students had a special meal together and a celebratory time together listening to some of the history of how God has been with us all this time.  Balloon games will also feature in the student celebrations!

The school came together with parents and governors to praise God.  The Seniors lead worship with their band and we enjoyed eating loads of different cakes. We asked some of the students afterwards what they liked best and they had been really excited by praying together with the parents.

Autumn Term – lessons in culture, home and away

This gallery contains 17 photos.

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness… our harvest festival was a celebration of God’s gifts to us.              The students brought a selection of vegetables (which we made into a meal and ate together), crazy fruit (which they … Continue reading

The Sun Never Sets on ACE – a trip to Mauritius

DSCN4839Mr and Mrs Golamhossen and their family were very privileged to be invited on a trip to Mauritius this summer.  An exciting highlight of their holiday was a visit to Morning Star School, one of the many many schools around the world using the same curriculum as King of Kings School.  They were welcomed by Pastor Len and shown around by Miss Leroux.  The Mauritian winter still provided a stunning backdrop of dark clouds and mountains to the very beautifully landscaped new school grounds.  The students were friendly, polite and interesting.  Their English was excellent and the visitors were greeted very politely by every student they spoke to.  The youngest family members were excited by the outside lego, and play equipment, but also enjoyed listening to the students talk about what PACEs they were doing.

Summer Term: creativity, activity and language highlights (also upcoming events)

WP_20150703_003Jesus Loves You (Chinese)We’ve been enjoying new Chinese lessons this term.  This is for the whole school and the students are very enthusiastic.  The first lesson included learning to form Chinese characters with brushes. This new enjoyment hasn’t interfered with the Juniors singing French songs at the top of their voices (and in good tune!).  The students in the Juniors are making such good progress, that they are ready for Latin next term.  Meanwhile we have the exciting prospect of our French language exchange in October.  A group of students from a Christian school in Switzerland will be visiting and we are teaming up with Covenant Christian School to host them.  The return trip will be in the Spring and we’re prepping our conversational skills.

The green-fingered Infants have been very busy and successful this term.  There are tomatoes, beans, chillis, lavender and various other interesting plants here.  We’re looking forward to an activity day with Covenant Christian School this week, followed by our annual Summer Banquet.   We have friends old and new coming to eat, fellowship and enjoy the children’s performances.  They’ll probably get a good opportunity to enjoy the lovely displays that the Infants, Preschool and Juniors have been working on.

We asked some of the staff, “What did you do over the Easter holidays?”

EUROPEAN STUDENT CONVENTION – Mark Golamhossen                            

I volunteer my time each year to be one of the chief adjudicators at ESC. While there I run a team that covers all of the academic events. We make sure that all the events are run properly with an emphasis on the spiritual and character development of the students. ESC is one of the most rewarding experiences I have with great students, teachers and organisers all working together to make Christ known, one child at a time. The evening rallies were inspirational and it was powerful to see past students preaching.

Beccy Judson                        WORD ALIVE – Beccy Judson

I went to Word Alive 2015 in Butlins, Prestatyn.  I was there as a steward, part of the team of helpers.  I loved being able to help people in so many ways.  I learned so much and listened to some sound Christian teachings. Two particular highlights, out of so many, were worshiping Him with about 1200 others in the evenings and then the interview with George Verwer, founder of OM, during one of the evening meetings. He told us that even after 60 years of being a Christian, temptations are still there daily and that we need to keep trusting in His forgiveness and love for us. It was wonderful to meet up with old friends, and make new ones, as well as have times wonderful fellowship, food and fun.

SOUTH AFRICA – Anne Kellar                      Anne Kellar  

I was so excited to return to S. Africa over the Easter holidays. We had lived there previously and cared for disadvantaged children in our home.

What a joy to see our precious boys again! They had all grown, but the bonds were still there, and we were soon talking together about the “Good Old Days.”  Nearly all the boys are doing well – following the Lord Jesus, and are studying or have jobs. They have developed into well rounded and happy individuals. It was humbling to receive gifts from them as they said, “Thank You.”

One of the boys graduated as a doctor while we were there, another is a pastor, and another is working as a journalist on S. African television. I remember them as little boys, and am so proud and amazed at their progress. God has been so faithful.

While we were in Durban some xenophobic attacks broke out. It was a frightening time; we ended up having to shelter two boys from Uganda. Their lives were in danger, and they were traumatized by the events. We read Psalm 91 together and sang, “In the Name of Jesus, We have the Victory.” The fear left and we were filled with the joy and confidence of the Lord. We proved together that God was with us.
