The wonderfully and varied PA experiences that the children encounter as part of their time in KNS, could not happen without the support of the parents and staff at KNS.  Parents volunteer their time, energy and ideas to make these activities happen for all our children.  To them we owe a huge end of year thank you.

The Staff of KNS wish to pass on their sincere thanks to all parents, for the staff BBQ, held in appreciation of all their incredible work during the year.

The Staff at KNS, led so excellently by Noreen, are a very special team who work extraordinarily hard, to ensure all our children reach their potential in a very happy and stimulating environment.
