Kingsway's Year 11 team has covered themselves in glory in the 2015 Write a Book in a Day. They won the best Illustrations in the senior secondary category in WA; Best Book in WA and  - as full acknowledgement of the outstanding quality of work, calibre of students and team cohesion  - the Best Book 2015 – National. They have been working together as a team for the past few years developing and honing their skills.

Write a Book in a Day began in 1985 by the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers' Centre, the oldest writers' centre of its kind in Australia. The Centre encourages and facilitates writers' readings, workshops, writers in residence and other services, all designed to help and encourage writers at all levels of the craft. In 2015,there were 529 teams who entered the event.

The three particpating Kingsway teams also managed to raise $1753.50 for the Kids' Cancer Project through sponsorship and generous donations from the community. Each of the three teams spent twelve hours palnning, writing, illustrating and editing their books
