The Kendrick Parents’ Society forms a strong link with the school developing relationships between staff, parents, carers and students. The KPS provides funds for the extra items which cannot be covered by the school’s budget.
The KPS is pleased to announce that recent funds raised have benefited the following Kendrick School departments: Art, Geography, Music, ICT, Design Technology / Engineering Club, PE and the Library We have also funded the School House system, student newsletter and the recent International Evening which was organised by the students.

The KPS launched the New Cartridge Recycling Scheme in December which is proving to be a great success, but we need more families to get involved. Start saving your used printer cartridges. Ask friends, neighbours, work colleagues and employers to save cartridges for you and send them into school in the recycle bags provided. Students can get bags from ICT1 and a list of cartridges suitable for recycling.
Help raise money for Kendrick Students and help the environment at the same time.
