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.
Over the weekend of October 28-29, a number of King's-Edgehill junior and senior debaters participated in the Nova Scotia Debating Society Annual Provincial Impromptu Tournament at Halifax Grammar School.
Topics ranged from discussions on the pros and cons of trade protectionism to whether or not parents should be held accountable for their child's bullying at school. Yes, 2 sides to all of these topics! Our debaters engaged in 4 preliminary rounds on Saturday and observed the semi-finals and finals on Sunday.
Karen Moore, Associate Director of Admissions at KES, will be attending a Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) Boarding School Fair on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 5 pm – 8 pm at the Accra Beach Hotel in Barbados. Karen will be meeting with current KES families and prospective families. For over 20 years, a group of CAIS Boarding Schools have been travelling to Barbados to meet with families who are interested in a Canadian boarding school education for their children.
There is no greater way to build a sense of community at school than to take some time off from school’s every day routines and have some fun with fellow classmates! Throughout the academic year KES hosts Junior School House games, which kick off in the fall with the Junior School Highland Games – after all Nova Scotia is, of course, New Scotland!
On Friday, October 27th King’s-Edgehill School (KES) teachers, staff and students look forward to opening their doors to parents, prospective students and their siblings for a day designed to highlight why so many families choose KES.
We understand that selecting a private school for your children is a difficult decision and can be overwhelming. The KES Open House is designed to simplify the process by allowing you and your child to fully immerse in the KES experience. You will not only tour the campus and get to know some of our KES family, but you will have time to ask questions, explore the classrooms and hear, first hand, the value and enrichment opportunities KES gives each and every student.

In order for the brain to be more, the body needs to do more. It is for this reason that KES runs a weekly “High Performance” Training Group. KES values the role physical fitness plays in daily life and encourages healthy habits early on. Our emphasis on physical fitness is not only seen through our various athletic offerings, but because we also offer extra to students who want to train more.
