Learn to Surf!

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 19, 2018 4:30:01 PM

The September night air is a little cooler now; however, the ocean temperatures in the fall are still beautiful, warm, and swimmable! Students who want to test these waters for themselves are encouraged to sign up for the Thanksgiving Break Surfing Trip to the South Shore of Nova Scotia! 

This is a beautiful time of year to be by the water, to get some instruction in some of Nova Scotia’s favourite watersports and explore the seaside life!

Wednesday, September 5th was Opening Day and the corridors were filled with laughter, chatter, and the welcoming voices of returning students and teachers as they helped new students navigate their first day at KES.

Headmaster's Weekly Newsletter -- Week 2

Posted by Joe Seagram, Headmaster on Sep 14, 2018 11:49:27 PM

Dear KES Family:

Our School Prayer invites our students to be inspired “with the spirit of truth, honour and duty.” I love that these words are spoken every single Chapel service and that our students will hear them hundreds of times as part of their daily lives here. In our rapidly changing modern world, each one of these values is like an endangered species. In this age of information, one would think that the truth would be easier to find than at any other time in history, and yet it is often as elusive as the facts in a supermarket tabloid.
