Why Support SJK?

The funds we raise are directly invested back into our student’s education and experiences here at SJK. We want to give our students the tools to succeed, and the skills and confidence to change the world.

Like many leading independent tuition schools, tuition fees only cover approximately 80% of the cost of an SJK education. That means that every single student at SJK will benefit from your generosity. These gifts help us to extend our educational excellence that tuition alone cannot provide.

SJK’s fundraising is an appeal to alumni, parents, grandparents, Board of Governors, faculty and staff, and friends to help support the School’s most pressing needs as determined by the members of the Foundation in collaboration with the Head of School.

Our primary areas of focus for fundraising include:
1. Head of School Priority Fund
2. Campus Enhancements
3. Scholarships and Bursaries

The choice is yours, whichever area you choose, your donation will make a difference immediately. Your support to the School represents a belief in the potential of our students, an appreciation for the lasting value of an SJK education and makes a powerful statement about our community beliefs at SJK.

All gifts to the SJK Annual Fund will receive an official tax receipt.
