2019 Annual Summer Fair
Saturday 23rd March marked the hosting of our annual Summer Fair. Amongst the special guests who attended this year were: Sir Roger Fry and his wife, Lady Fry, together with Mrs Alison Cross, Chargé d'Affaires, from the British Embassy, together with several members of the School Advisory Board. We were also delighted to welcome the Director of Hogar Divino Niño, Los Rios, together with some of her wonderful children.
The day provided an excellent opportunity for families to enjoy a range of activities, visit numerous stalls and sample delicious food from over 15 international food stands.None of this could have been possible without the help and support from a number of our families from KCP, who, together, with Mrs Alison Donnelly, ensured that the day was an overriding success

A day in King’s College Soto
The objective was to perform our A-Levels for a day in a bigger year group so we could see another school in the King’s College Group.
For the day, Kevin, Ale and I were paired with students from Soto that had the same options as us to follow them around the school. Once we arrived, we met our “guides for the day” and went to assembly. The school has separate buildings for different learning areas; one building for science, one building for languages and one building for history. This is because Year 12 has 200 students so they need a lot of space for the amount of students that they have. The people that we met in there were really nice and welcoming and I really enjoyed the experience. I’m really grateful for this experience because we made so many friends and memories that will last forever.
Can you believe it? The students there didn’t know that in Panama we speak Spanish so when we said something in Spanish they were surprised that we could speak the language!

A level Students trip to Madrid
During our stay in Madrid we had the amazing opportunity to visit the beautiful center of Madrid; some of the places we enjoyed and visited were Plaza Mayor, Sol and Mercado San Miguel and thanks to our trips into Madrid center we were able to learn and interact with the spanish culture as we were able to try some of the amazing cuisine and dishes of the spanish gastronomy.
On one of the days in Madrid we had the wonderful chance to visit a reputable university - IE. It was interesting to compare Panama’s universities with the one we visited. It was great to have the opportunity to walk through a university as big and respected as IE and was one of the things that make the trip to Spain so worth it.
We were also very thankful that the trip gave us the opportunity to see and talk face to face to very close friends who used to study at KCP; we managed to meet up multiple times and we were able to catch up with life. We went to dinner with them even in Madrid center which was the best possible thing you could ask for.
Thank you so much for the opportunity and I hope to repeat it.

Bake Sale Success
Dear King's College parents,
As the year 11 global perspective group, we would like to send a massive thank you to all parents, students and staff for all the support and collaboration during the bake sale.
On Friday 28th September, we had our first “Bakesale” of the school year to celebrate World Peace Day. As a class, we wanted to have an event quickly as a way to start an active school year. We originally wanted to start with another event, but quickly shifted to a more simple idea that guaranteed us lots of engagement from the school community. After thorough deliberation, we talked to our headteacher who immediately supported our idea. The next three weeks went by in a split second; we had to organise letters to parents(in both English and Spanish), posters, and running of the day including the location and set up.Thankfully everything ran smoothly.
We surpassed our expectations by exceeding our target; we raised over a thousand dollars. All of these donations will go towards TECHO (a charity that builds houses for less fortunate people in Latin America). Again a huge thank you for all of your kind donations and contributions.

Día mundial de la paz y venta benéfica de pasteles.
Éxito en la venta de pasteles
Estimados padres de King's College,
Estimados padres de familia,
El grupo de Global Perspective de Year 11, quiere transmitirles nuestro más sincero agradecimiento a los estudiantes , maestros y padres de familia de la comunidad escolar por toda la ayuda y contribuciones en el reciente Bake sale.
El viernes 28 de septiembre, tuvimos nuestro primer "Bakesale" del año escolar para celebrar el Día Mundial de la Paz. Como clase, queríamos organizar un evento como una manera de comenzar un año escolar activo. Originalmente queríamos realizar otro evento, pero rápidamente cambiamos a una idea más simple que nos garantizará mayor compromiso por parte de la comunidad escolar. Después de una deliberación exhaustiva, hablamos con nuestro c quien de inmediato apoyó nuestra idea. Las siguientes tres semanas pasaron en una fracción de segundo; tuvimos que redactar cartas dirigidas padres (tanto en inglés como en español), carteles y detalles de cómo se realizaría la venta, incluido la ubicación. Todo funcionó sin problemas.
Superamos nuestras expectativas al sobrepasar nuestro objetivo; Hemos recaudado más de mil dólares. Todas estas donaciones se destinarán a TECHO (una organización benéfica que construye casas para personas menos afortunadas en América Latina). Nuevamente, muchas gracias por todas sus donaciones y contribuciones.
