On Friday, October 22, 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 an independent 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.
Our Open House starts at 11:00 am with an official greeting in the Hon. A. Gordon Cooper Library where prospective students and their families will have the opportunity to meet teachers, staff and current KES students. The meet and greet is followed by tours of the campus including classrooms, the Ted Canavan Athletic Centre, Fountain Performing Arts Centre, Margaret Vair McLellan Concert Hall and Richardson Hall Residence. Our students, who know first hand what makes KES so unique, will be your guides. They will share their KES memories and experiences as they show you around campus. Buildings such as the theatre typically feature the talent of KES students, including the upcoming musical Heathers, and don’t be surprised if you hear details about the various clubs our students take part in.
At 12:15 pm, following the campus tour, lunch will be served in our Stanfield Dining Hall – a great opportunity to see where students spend their time eating, socializing and meeting new friends. Families will be served food familiar to KES students. KES provides students with healthy food, designed to nourish their minds and bodies. Hot and cold options are served on a daily basis and students have the option of selecting their menu based on their diet, including vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy/lactose-free or based on food allergies and sensitivities.
KES parents never have to worry about packing (or forgetting to pack) their child’s lunch and parents who choose to have their child board with KES never have to worry about their child’s nutritional needs while away from home. International students often help plan special meals that recognize their holidays from home.
The Open House continues at 1:00 pm with an open forum in the theatre. This time is for families looking for more information on what KES has to offer through presentations and a question and answer period. Have your questions ready – for some inspiration, consult our Questions and Answers download!
