Dear Parents,

As we come to the final week of 2020/21, it is very fitting that our Year 6 students feature prominently through their PYP exhibition. This Friday at 9:00am, we launch the KJS PYP exhibition 2021! The PYP exhibition gives our incredible young students an opportunity to showcase their skills, knowledge, attributes, values and personalities as they seek to change the world and make it a better place for all!

You will see some important information below about KJS in 2021/22, so if you are a returning family, please take the time to check out the information on the uniform changes.

We will have one final newsletter next week. However, in the meantime, we want to acknowledge the staff who will be leaving KJS at the end of this academic year. Each staff member has made positive and welcoming contributions to the culture of KJS, and we know that their dedication and service will have an impact on so many children. We wish the following staff all the best for their next steps as they move on from KJS:


Teachers: Paul Anderson, Andrea Fuentes Diaz, Joseph Fahy, Sarah Simpson, Ian Wishart

Educational Assistants: Adela Kamaragoda, Fiona Lee, Mel White


We look forward to seeing many of you at the PYP exhibition this Friday and to farewelling our Year 6 families and students next week. In the meantime, as always, thank you for your kind support and your commitment to KJS.


Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly

Reminder to Children Leaving KJS

For children who will not be returning to KJS for the 2021/2022 school year, we are sad to see you leave. Please be reminded to copy to a thumb drive all of your child’s school records, as all online portals will not be available after departure.



Student Success

The celebration of student success will channel to our Facebook page. You can find the school’s Facebook here. Please keep the photos and stories coming of our children shooting the AAROW’s of Success!
