Welcome to our KPS Senior School blog. This blog is the result of the Year 6 Paparazzi Action Team of 2014 proposing this initiative in term 1. This started by them conducting their own survey into whether or not other senior school students at KPS wanted to have a senior school blog. An important component of this blog also involved the action team researching into the sort of content students wished to have displayed.
It is their hope this blog will be continued by future student action teams and their own way they are leaving KPS in a better place than when they arrived.
We hope you enjoy our blog. Feel free to follow and leave comments.

Sally teaches 501.
Sally didn’t really know why she wanted to do teaching, but she wanted to be a teacher as she was growing up so she became one.

Jacki teaches 602
I enjoyed primary school myself – the variety of so many different things going on every day, the colour, the fun and community spirit. I also get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people and teaching is a perfect career for that.
I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people make their life better, feel more successful, happier and in turn the world a better place to be!
Yes, I love the variety, the colour, the fun and community spirit each new day brings.
No, I am Aussie born and bred.
I love spending every day with, and am very proud of each one of the beautiful children in my class. Everyone of them is delightfully unique and strives to learn and improve themselves and their life. It is evident in the young people they are becoming as they prepare for the challenges of high school. And it makes me enjoy coming to Kew PS to work each day.
Andrew started teaching because he loved seeing kids growing in their learning and becoming an inspiration.
One of Andrew’s favourite parts of teaching is when children he has taught come back and thank him for teaching them.
Andrew is from New Zealand but loves being in Australia and teaching.
Andrew thinks that 603 have very talented people and are always striving to look after each other. They also display the C.A.R.E values.
