From the Principal – 29 April 2021

Hi Folks

Welcome to Term 2, especially the three new families who have joined us last week.

It has been a rather exciting start to term with seven tours considering enrolment plus other enquiries. Can I encourage you all to keep spreading the word about our wonderful school and its community, as most enquirers state they are interested due to ‘word of mouth’ recommendations.

On the return to school there are so many Red Letter events on the calendar for the first half of the term. Last Friday we commemorated the ANZACs at a special assembly led so ably by some of our students, a special time for all involved. School Photos are being taken next Wednesday and Thursday. Then of course it is Mother’s Day soon and our ‘Mums and Muffins’ events on Thursday 6th for The Early Learning Centre and Friday 7th for Pre-Primary to Year 6 are all organized. This is a time to especially honour our school mothers and caregivers. Finally, the national assessments for literacy and numeracy (NAPLAN) are being conducted over the week of 10-14 May.

Student Code of Conduct

On Tuesday of this week your child (Year 1-6) received a KCS Student Code of Conduct. If you have not already done so, can you ensure that you have discussed it with your child(ren), sign it off and have it returned to the classroom teacher tomorrow.

All Things Music

In a month’s time we have our first every Music Week celebrating all things musical, with three early evening recitals of all students receiving music tutoring, lunchtime and class activities each day, and a magnificent Musical Assembly on Friday 28th May in our gymnasium turned Concert Hall.

There would be very few schools that could say that a third of students are benefitting from individual and small group music tutoring above and beyond the curriculum program; but we can! And tutoring with 12 instruments being covered - Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Piano, Bass Guitar, Guitar, Drums, Trumpet, Trombone, Violin, Viola, and Cello. It is amazing, thank you Mrs. Wheat!

A Lovely Letter

We love receiving correspondence from our community. Here are some extracts from a letter received last week relating to the recent Easter Concert that blessed us as a staff.

What a blessing! As a grandparent of some of your past and present students “thankyou”, for the wonderful Easter Concert. Most noticeable was the appropriate ‘sense of occasion’ the students displayed in their singing and presentations – both solemn and celebratory as required. The highlight for me, being of an older vintage, was the rendition of ‘The Old Rugged Cross’. It was quite unexpected, brought tears, and I couldn’t help but sing along – a wonderful memory of honouring Jesus with my grandchild.

Bible memory verse

For the next four weeks students are learning what is commonly known as the Lord’s Prayer found in the gospel of Matthew as part of the Sermon on the Mount. For two thousand years Christians have used this prayer as a model for their own praying.

This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” Matthew 6:9-13
