The Headmaster’s Garden Party, one of the most anticipated events in our College’s calendar, was an opportunity for members of our King's community to make new friends, meet our staff members and be introduced to our 2017 School Leaders.

Guests were entertained throughout the evening by our King’s College String Orchestra and Late Night Jazz Group.

Headmaster Simon Lamb, addressing the crowd at his second annual Headmaster’s Garden Party, called on the attendees to remain tightly connected with the College.

“Together we’ll achieve great things,” he said. “I am looking forward to working with the King’s community in what will be a very progressive and dynamic year at the College.”

This event was also an opportunity for the friends to present a generous donation of $174,000 to the College, a result of their fundraising initiatives in 2016.

"It's great to see everyone catching up with friends and connecting with new likeminded people. At the very heart of Kings College we talk about support, collaboration, celebration of success in order to mould and prepare our children to succeed in life", says Friends committee member Liz Barnett. 

"The Friends' message is simple. Get involved, make a difference and support the development of your children. It’s rewarding and sets our loved ones up for life – what greater motivation"
