“We encourage the school community to explore freely their understanding of themselves in the world through a rich programme of academic, cultural, sport and social endeavour. ”
"My name is Father Mark and it is my privilege to be Chaplain to the King's Hall School community. I live on the College campus with my wife, Sharon, and our sons. As a Christian school in the Anglican tradition, and as part of the Woodard family of schools, we believe that the spiritual component of education, with the Eucharist at the centre, is vital in the development of the whole person."
Faith at King's Hall
Our community is diverse, consisting of individuals of faith as well as those of no faith. We encourage the school community to explore freely their understanding of themselves in the world through a rich programme of academic, cultural, sport and social endeavour. But the touchstone for all is human spirituality as embodied in Jesus Christ. All faiths are embraced at King’s, and we ensure that pupils receive the support and freedom to practice their religious choices appropriately.
In a world where religion and its practices have often been discredited or misunderstood, we believe in the importance of religious literacy and offer our pupils opportunities to study and explore great faith traditions of the world in a formal academic way.
Light a Candle
You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. Perhaps you would like to say a prayer for a loved one who is ill or who has died. One single guideline is all you need: slow down and do it with full attention.
