Dear KJS Families,

Thank you very much for your support in helping us to return to in-person school. Your children have brought incredible energy and enthusiasm, and the opportunity to reconnect after a protracted period of distance learning has been uplifting. We are very fortunate to be able to move to full-day school so quickly (from April 25th), and we are excited by the prospect of learning together on campus for the last term of this school year. Please see the return to full-day school message that was sent via the ESF App yesterday, and we will continue to keep you informed regarding any further developments.

Just in case you missed it before the Easter break, the Easter Edition of the KJS Times was another student triumph at KJS. The wonderful teamwork and genuine motivation that drives the process and publication really shone through in the form of an outstanding celebration of learning. You can access the newspaper through this link. Thank you to Ms. Bailey, Ms. Parker, Ms. Mulchandani, and Ms. Sabnis for supporting our students.

As you may have heard, extracurricular activities (ECAs) require both staff and students to be doubly vaccinated against COVID-19. We are currently exploring ways  to offer a number of ECAs, and we ask for your understanding as we consider opportunities and work through the accompanying logistics.



Kind regards,

Dr Jamie Schmitz
