The Senior Choir is an inclusive choir open to students in Grades 4, 5 and 6, that rehearses during lunchtime. Students work together to choose, rehearse and perform musical pieces from a variety of genres. The Senior Choir receives numerous performance opportunities, such as school assemblies and other events.
The KCPS Vocal Ensemble is an auditioned choir open to students in Grades 4, 5 and 6, that rehearses before school. Students work together to rehearse and perform musical pieces from a variety of genres. The KCPS Vocal Ensemble receives numerous performance opportunities, such as school assemblies, ANZAC day ceremony in Caroline Springs and events in the wider community.
The RACV Energy Breakthrough aims to encourage students to examine and use technology while considering its impact on the environment, and in addition, promote physical fitness. The program requires a high fitness level, commitment and endurance. The event culminates in an endurance race of 14 hours, held at Maryborough in November, in which school teams race around a criterion track against up to forty other teams.
In addition to the race, students are required to undertake research into design technology, go through a scrutineering session and develop a presentation. The students need to demonstrate to judges their knowledge of the vehicle, the theory behind the way it has been built and the relevance to keeping our world safe and clean.
We are excited to be apart of the RACV Energy Breakthrough for the second time and to have two vehicles competing. In the build up to the event students compete in other events through the year such as, Knox, Bendigo EEV/HPV and Casey Fields. Detailed information on the RACV Energy Breakthrough can be found at the website http://www.racvenergybreakthrough.net/.

Tournament of the Minds
Tournament of Minds is a problem solving programme for teams of students from both primary and secondary years. They are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the following disciplines: Applied Technology, Language Literature, Maths Engineering and Social Sciences. Tournament of Minds is an opportunity for our students who possess a passion for learning and problem solving to demonstrate their skills and talents in an exciting, vibrant and public way. Our students competed in the primary section in Maths Engineering and Social Sciences, learning teamwork, creativity and lateral thinking throughout, culminating in their performances in front of judges at the Tournament in August.

This program provides 30 swimming lessons each year (8 per term) on a ratio of six or seven students for each qualified instructor. This program will be reported on to parents twice each year as part of the schools reporting process. One-piece navy bathers are required for the program and may be purchased from Kings or any local suppliers.
