From the Committee

Welcome and a huge thanks to all the KCS families joining us tonight and those that
have supported the KCS 30th Anniversary Diamond Gala.

As we cross this significant milestone and celebrate 30 years of Knowing What
Matters in Life, we can’t think of a better initiative for tonight’s proceeds.
It is innovative student experiences like the KCS Student Entrepreneurship Program
(StEP) that continues to push the boundaries of our children’s learning and help them
achieve their big ideas that make Kingsway College School the model of education
that it is.

Last but certainly not least, a huge shout-out to the Gala Committee and all the
tremendous support received from staff for the hours of work and dedication that
culminated in the fabulous event this evening.

Now get your elbows sharpened for some exciting auction bidding, your dancing
shoes primed to hit the floor and have a fantastic night!

With thanks and best wishes

From the Head & Board

Thank you for joining us this evening for the KCS 30th Anniversary Diamond Gala.
We are excited to share this milestone anniversary event with you all. It was the
entrepreneurial spirit of our founders that led to our school opening 30 years ago, and
it is with your support today that we are able to offer ground-breaking programs like
the KCS Student Entrepreneurship Program. We thank you all for your generosity.

Congratulations to the entire Gala Committee for putting together this unforgettable
evening in support of such a worthy cause. We also thank all our tireless volunteers for
helping make the evening a success. Finally, we are grateful for dedication of Hallie
McClelland and her team in the Advancement office. This event would have been
impossible without you.

KCS knows students are capable of achievements beyond our wildest dreams.
We’re proud to launch an exciting new catalyst for doing so – the KCS Student
Entrepreneurship Program (StEP). This authentic opportunity will support students in
grades 6 to 8 with entrepreneurial ambitions. Those willing to do the hard work of
launching a viable enterprise will gain access to formal mentorship by established
entrepreneurs, and seed money if needed through our new StEP Fund. This program
is being delivered in partnership with Future Design School and through the generous
volunteer support of KCS parent-entrepreneurs.

Your support tonight will make a difference where it matters most – with our students
and the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Thank you for knowing what matters in life. We
hope you enjoy the evening.

Introducing StEP

Growing Entrepreneurship, StEP by StEP

What ideas do you get when you invite 10 to 14 year-olds to start a business?

• Personalized hat accessories • A pending password saver
• Online animations • An app helping Etobians get to
• Outdoor survival kits
• A budding new board game know and love their community
• T-shirts (raising funds for the Jays • A cancelled plan to earn money

Care Foundation) through cryptocurrency (we learned
• Clothing personalization business that ship has sailed…)
• A KCS vending machine • And our famous Danny Z KCS
playing cards (raising funds for StEP)

These new business pursuits mark our inaugural year in the KCS Student
Entrepreneurship Program (StEP). Last spring’s pilot included the groundwork for the
playing cards, plus the launch of Ace-Sox, an online customized team sock business,
as well as a marketing boost to another online business that was already underway
pre-pilot. Ten current students have projects underway, and many more have

expressed interest but have other commitments. That’s
okay. Seeds have been planted.

At KCS, we believe we all have a responsibility to
make a positive difference in the world. The attributes
exercised in entrepreneurship (most of which are found
in our KCS Habits) are fundamental to making that
difference. KCS students are ready, able, and many are
on their way. Thanks to StEP, and the generous addition
of time, expert guidance, our partnership with Future
Design School and seed funding from our community,
entrepreneurship is blossoming this spring at KCS.

StEP Entrepreneurs

In September 2018, KCS launched our ground-breaking StEP entrepreneurship
program, inviting students with entrepreneurial ambitions to pursue their big ideas.

Supported by Assistant Head, Academics, Andrea Fanjoy, all grade 6-8 students are
encouraged to take an entrepreneurial leap. We connect them with mentors, and
provide basic instruction in value propositions, minimum viable products, design
thinking, prototyping, customer interviews, and prepping pitch decks. Students who
pitch viable ideas can acquire seed money from the new StEP Fund and have the
help of a dedicated mentor. This support is significantly enhanced by our partnership
with Future Design School and a growing list of established entrepreneurs in the KCS
community who are willing to speak, entrepreneur-to-entrepreneur, with our students.

Following a successful pilot program where two students set up online commerce
ventures and our own KCS Magician Danny Z launched his own special playing cards,
we can’t wait to see where the journey will take our students.

DANNY Z

At just fourteen-years-old, Daniel Zychla, aka Danny Z, is the newest KCS entrepreneur.
When Daniel saw his first magic trick performed by a peer, he was astounded and
decided then that he wanted to connect to audiences and be part of something magical.

He quickly learned some tricks and started
performing for friends and family and hosted
his first full show for KCS students and faculty
in June 2018. Gaining a cult following, Danny Z
became a school-wide name to remember.

Following three months of concerted effort in
the pilot StEP program, Daniel launched his own
special edition KCS 30th Anniversary playing
cards that include the chance to learn two magic
tricks of your own.

Thank you Daniel for showing us what students
can accomplish!

Our Founders

In the late 1980s, a group of people concerned
with the state of public education in Toronto
came together to talk about building a new
independent school to serve the families in
Toronto’s west end. This group of Founders was
looking to make a difference in the Etobicoke
community for families then and in the future
by giving students a place to thrive and grow. It
was a small but dedicated group of community
members who were committed to opening
a school and thanks to their tireless efforts,
Kingsway College School opened in 1989 with
50 students in grade 1 to 5.

It has been remarkable to see the difference
their initial volunteer efforts and financial dollars
have made to thousand of students over the years and will continue to make in the
future. In the last 30 years, we’ve doubled the classes in each grade, added three
physical additions and completed an amalgamation to grow to 411 students from pre-
kindergarten through to grade 8. We are now looking to the future of the KCS senior
school.

We continue to build on the Founders’ efforts to develop our strong and wonderful
school community. We are thankful for their determination 30 years ago to establish
KCS.
