November has just ended and so did our very own Kingsley month of "MO"vember. This year we raised RM3,600.00 in total donation and a big HUG to our lucky winner, Ronan Seow of 9 Cambridge, who won RM300.00 in the lucky draw and decided to donate the cash prize to Movember bringing the total to RM3,900.00. The cash was handed over to Mr Vemanna Appannah, Deputy General Manager of MAKNA (National Cancer Council) during the Movember Presentation Ceremony held on Friday, 28 November 2014.
We would like to thank all our wonderful parents, students, teachers and staff who supported this charity event. We look forward to MOVEMBER 2015.
IN KINGSLEY, WE CARE
Students were able to enjoy the opportunity to try their hand at a wide range of activities with interesting sounding names such as: “Mud Crawling”, “Puncture Drum” and “Lava”. There were also a number of mainstream activities like kayaking, raft building, treasure hunt and hiking that students participated in. All these activities were designed to build camaraderie within Year 8, enhance student knowledge and improve life skills.
The highlight of the learning journey for many was undoubtedly the Fire Show on the Tuesday evening. Many students were amazed at the performance given and were very enthusiastic in showing their appreciation.
Throughout the two days, students enhanced many existing skills and learnt some new ones along the way. Skills such as survival skills, thinking skills and listening skills were a feature of the learning journey. Team building and the need for trust and care and concern of each other were elements regularly emphasised by the instructors.
All in all, students returned to Kingsley tired but reinvigorated, happy in the knowledge of what they had achieved and confident that with the skills developed from this learning journey, they will be able to achieve much more in the future.
Congratulations to Michelle Mary Kuruvilla who came out Top in Malaysia for English as Second Language in IGCSE O Level June 2014 examinations. She is also selected as one of the proud recipients of Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards.
Kingsley, Like No Other.

Year 10 Learning Journey was held on the 28th and 29th October at the University of Malaya Field Study Centre. At the very heart of Ulu Gombak, students were taught living skills – building temporary huts, jungle trekking in the dark (blindfolded!), and research skills – collecting data from the field such as calculating stream velocity and sustainable development. This Learning Journey brought meaningful experience which our students will never forget. We are looking forward to the next one!
