Congratulations parents!

440 of you had contributed to the online survey by 5:00 pm on Tuesday night. We have passed the 50% threshold but imagine if we had 100% of our parents taking just 5 minutes to have their say about KJS in 2019/20!

Plus 108 clarifying comments and 143 additional suggestions to help our school achieve our vision of “Success for Every Child”!

Do you agree with the trends above? Why not have your say? Let’s really partner on this as we plan for the year (and years) ahead. We are at 60% but is that enough?

Once again the invitation is there. Five minutes of your time to influence your child’s future. It’s worth it!

Just two days to go.

Please go to this link and have your say.


Kind regards



Neill O’Reilly



Advance Fees and Student Withdrawal

A message was sent from ESF to all parents regarding advance fees for the 2019/20 academic year. You may also view the message here.

If you are withdrawing your child at the end of this academic year, please complete the student withdrawal notice and return it to the school office in person or via email by 31 May 2019. Otherwise, ESF will assume that your child is returning after summer and parents are liable to the tuition fees for September 2019 even if the student does not return to school.
