KNS Family Fun Day 2023 – Creating Cherished Memories

We are excited to share with you some wonderful photographs from our recent KNS Family Fun Day! 

The KNS Parents Association was very happy with the big team effort that saw a day filled with laughter, games, and bonding, creating cherished memories for our children and their families.

Smiles All Around. Our day started with bright smiles from our young students and their families as they gathered together around the kindly donated baked goods and the toddlers area. The joy was palpable, setting the tone for an unforgettable event.

Sweet Perfection. Families relaxed and savoured delicious treats, tea and coffee in the hall, making time for families to connect over good food and conversations.

Face Painting Fun. Our talented face painters and glitter tattoo artists transformed our children into pirates, butterflies, superheroes, and more! The expressions of pure delight on the happy faces as they saw their artistic transformations were truly heartwarming.

Friendly Competitions. The highlight of the day was the outdoor games, showcasing the teamwork and spirit of our school community. Laughter, cheers, and high-fives filled the air as teams gave their all.

Crafty Creations. Our budding artists got to express their creativity at the arts and crafts and Lego stations. Their colorful masterpieces were a testament to their imagination and artistic flair.

Dance and Music Magic. Games of musical chairs and karaoke kept parents, grandparents, and siblings tapping their feet.

This School Family Fun Day was a resounding success, thanks to the enthusiastic help of our volunteers (parents and 6th class students), as well as and the incredible support from our families. We are grateful for the strong sense of community that was on full display throughout the event.

These photographs capture the essence of what makes our school special: the bonds between our students, families, and staff. Thank you for being a part of our wonderful school community. 

Warm regards,

KNS Parents Association
