Dear Parents and Families,
Happy new year to all our families, and welcome to Kennedy Baptist College for 2021. I would like to welcome families who are joining us for the first time this year. We trust that everyone has had a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable holiday and are now ready to commence the new academic year.
Throughout the holidays, work has continued at the College to upgrade facilities for students. This has included:
- The replacement of the remaining Block 4 air coolers with reverse cycle air conditioning. This will be an ongoing project across the campus.
- New carpets and furniture for Mathematics rooms in Block 1.
- The total repainting of Arts buildings.
Work has also continued preparing and planning great opportunities for all students and we look forward to sharing these throughout the year. Our goal at Kennedy is to equip students to seize these opportunities and strive for greatness in all that they do. After reviewing all events that took place throughout a very busy 2020, we are extremely confident of continuing to provide opportunities for excellence this year and look forward to students embracing all that is offered at the College.
