Dear Parents,

Thank you for your feedback to our most recent survey, your opinion matters and helps us!

Here is this weeks’ newsletter video. There is important information in the video about how we can work together better to ensure success for your child.

To clarify, all of our term and holiday dates remain unchanged, we are still accepting student grant applications and I will be in school this week if you need a chromebook or Ipad, just complete the application here.

Finally, the current survey will be open today and tomorrow so please have your say!

We do miss your children at KJS and hope in the meantime you and your family are safe and well.


Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly

Learn Coding & Programming At Home? No problem!

While it might be difficult to imagine a young mind learning something so seemingly complex, it’s definitely an attainable reality…! According to a survey online, 71% of all new STEM jobs are in computing, yet only 8% of STEM graduates are in Computer Science. That’s a SERIOUS shortage of Computer Science majors.

Learning to code will increase your child’s odds of securing a lucrative STEM career, especially in a world where computing jobs are growing at over twice the national average. So, let’s unlock new tech skills and soft skills with joining one of our popular courses – Tech Explorer & Tech Adventurer. These newly launched online courses are suitable for students aged 10 to 14.
