Principal's message

I am sitting in my office looking out the window at the sunshine which is streaming down on Flag Green. The students are doing what they have been doing for the last century, sitting or lying on the green, chatting with each other, enjoying the warmth of both the weather and each other’s company. It is a picture which summarizes the strength and vitality of the KIS community.

This semester is smoothly underway with 35 students either rejoining or joining us, and two new music teachers, as well as a number of volunteers, including two alumni and the wife of an alum. It is a pleasure to have them all here for the semester.

The second semester is always marked by increasing academic pressure, particularly for the seniors as they face up to the demands required of them as they prepare for college and university. I would like to take this opportunity of wishing all our students every success during the course of this semester.

As you are aware, this semester is one of transition and I am delighted that Mr Adrian Moody, Principal Designate, will travel to Kodai twice this semester, as part of this change over.

May I take this opportunity of wishing you all a very Happy New Year.

Geoffrey Fisher
