About KTC’s Boys High School
Enter the Boys’ High School at Kesser Torah and you will find yourself surrounded by young men who are happy, energetic and tremendously proud of their Judaism. This is a unique group of boys who are constantly being nurtured academically, spiritually and physically. These young men find themselves in an environment of togetherness which is reflected in the way that all students – seniors and juniors alike – can be found playing a game of soccer or touch footy together during lunchtime or recess.
The school setting is one that constantly promotes academic rigour and development of special talents and interests both in Jewish and General studies. This is reflected in the many hours of lunchtime and after-school extra learning initiatives that our students participate in.
In the BHS, no significant date on the Jewish calendar goes unmarked. We use these special days as opportunities for interactive learning and the building of Jewish Pride. In a similar vein, we take hold of every chance we have to offer our students more exciting sports, science and mathematical opportunities.
The typical KTC BHS student is very community-minded and participates in a number of activities that are focused on building and strengthening the Sydney Jewish Community. Through our weekly Mivtzoim outreach program and our participation in fundraising efforts by various communal bodies, our school has managed to punch far above its weight in the community. In our school the students are constantly being exposed to speakers and guests who represent all spectrums of the community.
All this together helps us to fulfil our aims of producing happy young men who are independent and inspired learners, well-rounded individuals who possess a deep understanding and appreciation of their Judaism, and can function as independent and sophisticated learners in the modern, sophisticated world in which they live.
