More than 3,200 Kamehameha Schools Kapālama haumāna from kindergarten to 12th grade, recently assembled at Kekūhaupiʻo Gym for the campus’ annual beginning-of-school-year convocation.
“Bear Good Fruit” is this year’s spiritual theme, challenging staff members and students to improve themselves and to help others. Poʻo Kula (Head of School) Earl Kim shared his manaʻo on the topic at the all-campus gathering, inspiring attendees to take stock of what they have been given and to honor those gifts by helping others.
Each campus shared a musical offering, KS founder Princess Pauahi was honored, and the traditional passing of the torch – Nā Kūkini Lama – from one grade to another was run once again to the cheers of the entire student body.
KS Photographer Michael Young was on hand to capture the highlights of the event.
