Floreat Semper Fellowship

The Floreat Semper Fellowship was established in 1999 to provide a forum for Old Collegians and supporters of King's College who have attained the age of 70 years.

The objective of the Fellowship is focused on communications with and involvement of the College's longest standing supporters. The Fellowship is primarily a 'friend-raising' association to promote fellowship amongst its members and maintain their common interest in the College.

The Fellowship meets for luncheon twice a year in the convivial atmosphere of the Old Collegians' Pavilion at the College. These events are wonderful opportunities for Floreat Semper members to attend Chapel, hear current musical talent, meet some of the senior students at the school, receive an update on College activities and most importantly, to catch up with old friends.
