KHS Parent Council - Open House

There will be an open house for all parents on Tuesday 13th November from 6.30pm until 8.00pm.  This will give parents a platform to come in and find out more about the learning that is taking place within the school, opportunity for informal discussion, opportunities to volunteer within the school day or join the committee in a more relaxed environment.  As this date marks the one year anniversary of the opening of the school it will also be an opportunity to celebrate and showcase our recent achievements.
