KCS celebrates 50th anniversary in 2018

January 12, 2018
By KCS Staff

The year 2018 will be a historic year, as KCC/KCS celebrates God's faithfulness through 50 years! In 1968, KCC adopted a school (Preschool - 6th grade) as a nearby church closed its doors and the school they sponsored needed a new home. From those humble beginnings, God has orchestrated the growth of the school both numerically and in added grade levels. We are excited to celebrate the generations of children who have been touched by the KCS experience!
Save the Date!: The KCS 50th Anniversary Gala is scheduled for Saturday, November 17, 2018. Please make plans to join us at the Prince Waikiki for lunch from 10 am to 2 pm. More detailed announcements to come!
$50 off 2018-19 Application Fees: For the month of January, applicants who submit an application for the 2018-19 school year receive $50 off their application fee*. Apply today to discover what has made KCS a special place in the community for 50 years!  *Not applicable on international student applications.

Student Council presents gifts to local organizations

Mahalo to the KCS 'ohana for the generous donations to the Student Council's annual Christmas Gift Collection drive! A wonderful assortment of toys, games, and books were collected in December in support of four local organizations.  

On December 14, Student Council Officers had the opportunity to present the gifts and meet with Tara Humphreys of Hawaii Children's Cancer Foundation and Cheryl Tamura of HUGS.  Tara and Cheryl shared the mission of their respective nonprofits, which strive to provide financial support and services for Hawaii's seriously ill children.  The next day, Joe Block and Amanda Price accepted the donations on behalf of Hawaii Pacific Health Foundation.  These items will be added to the Child Life Services' Santa's Workshop and Playroom as well as being used throughout the year to bring smiles to patients at Kapiolani Medical Center. Senior Yuzuha Shibata, a volunteer for Queen's Medical Center, will deliver the donated books to their Reading Room.   

Officers enjoyed meeting these representatives and connecting a face with the nonprofit organizations that the Student Council partners with each year.

Middle School student receives $1000 scholarship

Congratulations to seventh grader Gabriella "Gabby" Holm as she was one of sixteen students in the US to receive a scholarship from the Life is Better When You Surf Scholarship Program. The $1000 scholarship, awarded by Global Surf Industries, can be used toward her educational expenses. She also won a brand new surfboard!

To apply, a letter of recommendation was submitted on Gabby's behalf, and Gabby composed a short essay and video describing why "life is better when you surf." In her essay, Gabby shares how being in the ocean gives her an opportunity to enjoy a different part of God's creation. She also fondly recounts how surfing is intertwined with family time in her household. Great work, Gabby, for demonstrating the positive values of surfing!

China Trip Recap: I'm on Top of the World

As I finally made my way to the top, the most surreal feeling overcame me while I marveled at the never-ending wall and beautiful fall leaves. "I'm actually here. I conquered the Great Wall of China," I thought to myself. This breathtaking moment left me with a bittersweet feeling as I realized my trip to China was coming to an end. Everything seemed as if it was a dream. It was hard to believe that I was actually exploring the cities of Shanghai, Xian, and Beijing with my closest friends. I breathed in the chilly air and felt very content. Our trip to China was a journey to cherish forever. I am happy to say that I have experienced and learned immensely about Chinese culture.

From October 4 to 11, nine students from the junior and senior class along with two chaperones embarked on an adventure to China. With memories to last me a lifetime, I feel so blessed that KCS and my parents have allowed me to visit a foreign country. I never thought I would ever be able to travel to China. I was able to actively see all the wonderful sights and learn the historical background for places such as Emperor Qin’s Tomb, The Forbidden City, and The Temple of Heaven. I expanded my horizons by conversing in Chinese everyday with the locals on the street. One of the most memorable parts of my trip was when I discovered my love for eating deep fried scorpions and lamb kebabs in the night markets. I grew obsessed with the beauty of Chinese art and architecture in the Summer Palace. I fell in love with its people, and I became quite attached to the exotic Muslim food in Xian.

Feeling as if I could never be bored eating delicious dumplings for breakfast, I realized it is necessary to explore China in order to see how it really is for yourself. The opportunity to be on top of the world was something I could not miss. The best part was sharing all these special moments with my classmates. I hope to go back to China one day.
