On Thursday, November 30, 2023, Kingston College (KC) launched its Centenary Celebrations featuring a range of activities over the next two years that will climax on April 16, 2025, the 100th anniversary of the school's founding.

The grand event was held at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston, featuring officials from the school, the old boys' association and the Centenary Planning Committee outlining some of the events, including the fund-raising efforts that will drive the 100th anniversary legacy project which will be made public at the time.

The program featured a special guest address by distinguished KC alumnus and former West Indies cricket great, Michael Holding, as well as remarks from minister of state in the education ministry Marsha Smith.

"The entire KC family in Jamaica and around the world is excited and energised by our upcoming centenary celebrations," said Kingsley Cooper, chairman of the Centenary Events Sub-Committee.

"As plans unfold and events and activities become reality, we are confident that the best of the legendary KC school spirit and record of excellence will be on display. We also hope to celebrate a number of legacy projects which will enhance the school's performance for many years to come," added Cooper, himself a KC old boy and one of Jamaica's foremost entrepreneurs in the entertainment and lifestyle industries.

The school is noted for its strong academic and sports tradition, and the choir — rated as world class — has given concerts across the island and around the world.
