Principal’s Message

As we enter Holy Week we are reminded of the many sacrifices that Jesus has made for us.  Easter is a time of renewal and reflection and rebirth. We wish you all the best during this very significant time in our liturgical calendar.  Our Easter Mass will be held on April 20th at 9:30 a.m. Over the past few weeks the children have been bringing in money for our Lenten project, ‘Kindness For Kenya’.  We are very close to our goal of 3000 dollars.  We thank you again for your generous support of this initiative.


NED Show

We are looking forward to the NED show at SKT on April 20th. This school-wide character education program centers around a 45 minute assembly called The NED Show. NED is a loveable cartoon character whose name is an acronym for Never give up, Encourage others, and Do your best. The NED show is simple, relatable and kid-focused.


April Gathering

Our April Gathering was held on Thursday, April 6th and we celebrated the Gospel value of Faith.
