Aloha mai kakou!
Welcome to the Boarding Program at Kamehameha High School Kapalama!
During the school year, nearly 385 high school students board on campus. Most of them come from the Neighbor Islands, some from O’ahu and a few from the mainland. Along with the resident staff, they form Kamehameha’s boarding community.
The Boarding Program is a quality residential learning community for Kamehameha Schools students who live on the Kapalama campus. The program is a safe and nurturing environment:
* grounded in Christian and Hawaiian value
* designed to foster student efforts to be respectful, responsible, and resourceful
* rich with opportunities for students and staff to be of service to others.
This is in keeping with the Trustees’ Mission:
Kamehameha’s Schools’ mission is to fulfill Pauahi’s desire to create educational opportunities in perpetuity to improve the capability and well-being of people of Hawaiian ancestry.
Tonight we played volleyball…and mostly ate donut holes, powdered donuts and icees…
Prizes were ice cream bars! That was the best part 😉
Last night we went to the Ice Palace. It was nice and cool inside, and we had lots of fun!
While some of us were at the football game, a bunch of us boarders were getting our studying on!
Tonight we played against St.Louis at the Aloha Stadium.
Our boys played hard and tough but alas, we lost again to the Saints.
We were lucky to be missed by the passing showers and were able to play a fun game of prison ball. The Seniors felt brave and wanted to play Seniors vs. The World. Unfortunately, they were outnumbered and lost, but we had a lot of fun!
…and the best part was that we didn’t lose any of our dodgeballs! Yahoo!
Last night the DRAC Representatives and Executive Council were treated to a special dinner with our KSK Po’o Kula Mr.Kim. We were graciously hosted and enjoyed a wonderful dinner with great conversation.
Mahalo to Mr.Kim for opening his home and heart to us! We really appreciate it!
On Saturday we all packed ourselves into 2 buses and headed out to the Aloha Stadium to cheer on our Warrior football team!
Although we lost to St.Louis 31-21, our Warriors played fiercely and with heart. I mua!
We’ve been having very crazy weather lately- with hurricanes threatening to hit our islands (but thankfully we have not been hit by a hurricane so far…9 have passed us with no significant effects besides lots and lots of rain, thunderstorms and lightening shows). It was beautiful to stand in the midst of the low clouds on Friday as our heights were covered by mist…
These pictures were taken at 1pm! It was so beautiful!

Today our DRAC dorm representatives and officers were blessed in our chapel service this morning. We are excited for this upcoming school year!
