It’s thanks to the support of the community: past and current parents, Old Collegians and their families, and many others who appreciate the value of a King’s College education that we can continue to do so. A gift to any one of these projects or funds is an investment in our students – and creates a brighter future.
Performing Arts Centre - A seat in your honour - $2,500
Work has commenced on our newest production, the most ambitious in the history of King’s College. We are building a first-class, multidisciplinary Performing Arts Centre at the school set to be completed in late 2023.
The College is excited about the addition of a Performing Arts Centre to the facilities of King’s College. Not only does it exemplify the College’s commitment to the Performing Arts but endorses existing programmes and introduces new art forms to the College’s offer to students.
With our new facility will come new capabilities. A specialist theatre with flexibility, malleability and unconstrained structure will enable traditional and new ways to perform. With specialist sound, lighting and set infrastructure the College will also be able to teach sound, lighting and set design within the precinct. To that we add a specialist orchestra room, three teaching spaces, a specialist dance and drama space as well as the various connecting elements which in themselves enable the multi-disciplinary approaches we seek within the Performing Arts.
The building itself encapsulates and exudes the very notions we are trying to create and enable in our young people. It demonstrates both structure and creativity, enabling within our students the craft which is Performing Arts. One of the ways to support this remarkable development is to make a contribution and have a theatre seat named in your honour. It will help to ensure that high quality arts experiences are available to our students for generations to come.

Service Books - $150
In 2022 the College will celebrate 100 years since the Memorial Chapel’s Foundation Stone was laid. The stone represents faith, the ‘foundation’ on which King’s was built. Over this time the Chapel has been a centre of support, personal alignment and inner strength. Through the Chapel and our Anglican faith, our students are guided to look beyond themselves and to live lives of self-giving love.
We are marking the occasion by introducing new service books, which will sit in beautiful leather-bound coverings so that they may be used for generations to come. Each service book contains prayers, services and an extensive selection of hymns and worship songs used in our Chapel services. The new books will also reflect more truly our three-tikanga relationship between tikanga Māori, tikanga Pākehā and tikanga Polynesia and offer prayers and songs that will reflect more truly the community we serve.
Help us in this quest, and we will honour your contribution by dedicating a book to you, your family or an Old Collegian. This is your opportunity to leave your mark on the legacy of King’s, or the mark of someone particularly significant to you: past or present.
The College will contact each Service Books donor direct to discuss their dedication inscription before production.Donate Now
Helping Hand Fund
This fund is to assist those students who do not have the financial means to participate in the College’s academic, cultural or sporting trips without special assistance. As one family commented, “It was not easy to ask for financial help, but when we needed it, it was given in a way that has not left us feeling beholden or humiliated, just grateful – thank you”.Donate Now
