King’s-Edgehill School Trips for the 2017-18 Academic Year

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Nov 15, 2017 7:10:36 AM

At King’s-Edgehill School learning goes beyond the classroom, beyond the local community, and sometimes beyond the province and country. As with every academic year, 2017-2018 will see plenty of opportunities for day and boarding students to learn and experience life outside of School. 

If your child has an interest in exploring the world, be sure to check out the trip to the Unites Arab Emirates KES has planned from March 11 to the 22, 2018. This 12-day visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi will give students the unique opportunity to explore one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Students will not only be immersed in the Arabic and Islamic culture and language, but they will also have the opportunity to visit the Grand Mosque, iconic skyscrapers and city-sized shopping malls.

Girls Hockey Win Vermont Tournament!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Nov 7, 2017 7:32:59 AM

The Girls Hockey Team travelled to Burlington, Vermont this past weekend for the Vermont Starts Fall Foliage Classic tournament! We were all very excited to enjoy the beauty of the fall colors but also to face off against competition from New Jersey and Vermont! Although short benched due to injury and illness, the girls battled hard all weekend and, of course, left some energy to explore downtown Burlington, and the girls threw a surprise party for   Morgaines  birthday. We had an amazing weekend with so many highlights on and off the ice, it’s hard to pick only a few. Let’s start with the girls scoring 11 goals in 4 games! With the cherry on top being   Kenzie Cecchetto’s  hat trick in the second game!

There is nothing more exciting to a Senior Student then visiting and touring a university campus. It’s a student’s firsthand view of what university life is like, and get an opportunity to get information, ask questions and decide if that university if a good fit for their future aspirations.

Students sign up to "Be More": KES Clubs and Activities Fair

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 18, 2017 3:51:43 PM

It is always exciting to chat with our new and returning students at the beginning of the year, and listen to what their goals are for the year ahead! Some students want to volunteer more in the local community, be in the school musical, or become a better public speaker, and others want to get involved in evening intramurals or learn a new language.  

Last Friday over lunch students gathered in the quad to hear all about what clubs and committees are offered this year at KES. Teachers and students creatively decorated tables, provided information, and encouraged students to sign up for clubs of interest.  

Here are some of the clubs we have offered at KES this year:
