Dear Parents,

It seems hard to believe but we have just two more Wednesdays in school and then the 2020/21 academic year comes to an end. We hope you enjoyed the long weekend with your children even if we got off to a very wet start. Who would have expected an amber warning after the mild weather we have had!

Thank you to the many parents who have been reaching out in appreciation of the incredible work the KJS team does for your children. We have been really humbled by the kind words and acknowledgements. However, the learning is far from over! This week, Year 6 will continue to take action through their PYP exhibition and you will be seeing lots of challenges and information coming from them. The Year 5 have their Market Day this Friday and they are very excited about sharing their creations. The fun, learning and joy of being in school continues in the other year groups as well.

Teachers are busy finalising reports and celebrating the progress your child has made in 2020/21 despite the many challenges the year brought. We have a School Council Meeting next week and we are looking forward to sharing the progress evident this year, celebrating the successes, as well as taking forward the learnings from the 2020/21 year.


Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly
