2021 Kennedy Centre Update

What a year 2020 was. We are so glad that it’s a new year!

We did not allow the closures to stop us from connecting with our kids and communities and we launched a range of initiatives such as Remote Online Learning and feeding the community through Operation Lighthouse to stay in touch.
