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.
Hang in there, folks! The end of the school year 2014-2015 is fast approaching! Although many students are battling fatigue and senioritis, we are continuing to encourage all of our students to finish strong and fight all the way to the end!
Final exams are around the corner. Final exams start on Tuesday, May 19, and end on Thursday morning, May 21. Quiet hours in the dorms begin after school on Monday, May 18 for students so they can concentrate on their studies; these quiet hours end on Thursday morning after the end of the last final exam.
All underclassmen will return home to their happy families for the summer and our seniors will get ready for Baccalaureate on Saturday, May 23, and Commencement (graduation) on Sunday, May 24 at the Neal Blaisdell Center.
We wish all of our boarders a great summer, and “the skyʻs the limit!” to our seniors upon graduation! I MUA to all!
Today was a beautiful day out at Nanakuli beach and we had a wonderful ocean fest! Our high school boarders got to compete in canoe races and relays on the beach. We were so blessed with a beautiful beach and heavenly waters.
We are so lucky to have the use of this beautiful and awesome facility tonight for our boarders.
It was a beautiful day in Hawai’i nei and we enjoyed the outdoors at Makapu’u
Here are more photos from our event:
We are so grateful to our presenters for sharing their time and mana’o.
Our all-boarding “Drug Users Are Life Abusers” event was held this afternoon for our entire high school boarding ‘ohana. Our students were privileged to hear from speakers from the Hawai’i Meth Project, Hina Mauka, Coalition for a Drug Free Hawai’i, and Tobacco Free Hawai’i.
Tonight we enjoyed games, food and fun here at our penny carnival!
We are having fun tonight singing karaoke and dancing!
This past Sunday three of our High School dorms volunteered and participated in the 10k run. Kamehameha was well represented, both in the volunteer category, and as participants!
