KBHS Distinguished Alumni Academy
Kelston Boys High School is inaugurating a Distinguished Alumni Academy form 2015. This Academy will recognise a certain number of former students each year. Honoured graduates of the School will be chosen for their leadership, excellence in their field and contribution to society. This recognition aims to show the alumni how the School appreciated that some of their formative education took place at Kelston Boys High School. In a sense, it is welcoming them home. This recognition is also both inspirational and aspirational for present students.
On the last weekend of September this year’s Alumni will be celebrated with a Sports Day and a Special Dinner to be held at the school.

Year 12 Pou Whenua
Year 12 students produced Pou Whenua in response to Olympic Park which is situated close to Kelston Boys High School. Pou whenua are wooden posts that often mark places of significance and are generally artistically rendered. Like totem poles Pou tell a story, the story and issues students have explored include sustainability, acknowledgement of place, kaitiakitanga and local histories.
These Pou have been on a journey like their makers, our students, with a final resting place which is at the entrance to the Art Department, an area where creativity can flow.
Kelston Boys High School has been working with VX Sports and the University of South Australia to develop an exciting new NCEA Level 2 Vocational Pathway Course around Sport Technology. Students will spend time each day relating practical tasks in sport – for example the collection of data on performances - to their other subjects such as Mathematics, Physics and Design. They will attend the training sessions of top teams and see technology in action analysing performance.
