     The word “Logos” was used in the name of the society because of its rich Biblical meaning. As the Gospel of John says, “In the beginning was the Word (Logos) and the Word (Logos) was with God and the Word was God. …The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:1, 14a).

Welcome, Tansi, Bonjour, Xin Chào, Bienvenidas, Salam Alaikum  

Students, parents and caregivers, family, staff and community members are all important and valued participants in our world of learning.  You all matter a great deal to our Kensington family.  Welcome to a year of opportunity, growth, greatness, success and of course, learning!

Learning is our priority at Kensington School and learning will take place in many ways.  Literacy and numeracy skills are vital and will be part of learning in every subject.  Diversity, kindness, caring, respect, inclusiveness and responsibility are valued and will  be a part of every class and every subject.  Kensington School is a safe place where students are encouraged and supported in their drive to reach their greatest potential.  Every adult is responsible for every child in the building and we will work as a team to do what is best for all of the children in our care. 

What can you do as a student to make your school year the best ever? Look after each other every day! And most of all, come to school each and every day prepared to learn, to inspire and to be inspired.  There are so many things in our great big world to inquire about and engage in.  Be passionate! Ask questions! Research!  Collaborate!  Take risks and challenge yourself!  Be independent! Push yourself to achieve those learning goals. This is your time to be great and be someone who makes a difference in our world.

Kensington staff are always open to great conversation and engaging questions from those adults who care for our students outside of the school day.  We pride ourselves in connections and relationships and look for opportunities to continually build those relationships in our community.  Please feel free to contact us when the need arises.  You are your child’s greatest advocate.  You are important and your input matters.  Your children are the greatest asset in this world and their success depends on all of our support.  We believe that this next generation WILL change the world.

Yours in Partnership,

Mrs. Dao Haddad

Principal
