Saint Kentigern Boys’ School has a long history of philanthropy.

Our School exists today due to the generosity of its founders, who had the vision, passion and energy to establish and build this magnificent boys’ school. 

A development strategy for the school was initiated in 2006 with the launch of the Vision 5 Master Plan for Campus Redevelopment. Project One, The Jubilee Sports Centre, was opened during the School’s 50th Jubilee in 2009, completing the first stage of this ambitious five-phase master plan.

The need for a long term funding plan to support the school’s on-going development has led to the establishment of the Roselle Foundation led by the Guardians with the goal to provide the structure for long term financial independence at the School.

"The Roselle Foundation is a fund that is focused on securing our future, our heritage, the vision of our founders and our on-going independence."
