School Council

The School Council consists of the Principal, elected representatives of the parent body and the staff, the KPSO President and a community member (by invitation). Only the Annual General Meeting is open to all in the school community. All other meetings are attended only by Council members, except as invited (eg. guest speakers). Issues are presented to the elected representative (parent or staff) who conveys them to the Council. The Council is concerned with issues of local interest (eg. traffic safety), school policy and the school canteen and so on. The Council holds no funds or cash accounts. Detailed information on the roles and function of School Councils, and the Kensington Public School Council Constitution, are available on request.

Please see the Constitution of Kensington Public School Council. It will be reviewed this year.

Greening Community

Kensington Public School proudly encourages its greening community by:

  • recycling, reducing and reusing in the classroom
  • saying "no" to plastic bags, plastic cutlery and plastic straws
  • encouraging "nude food" in lunchboxes
  • providing reusable containers in the canteen 
  • providing food waste bins in each classroom
  • composting our food waste in our compost bin
  • planting vegetable gardens around the school
  • keeping a worm farm and using waste to fertilize our gardens
  • planting an indigenous native garden along Bowral St 
  • keeping native stingless bees to pollinate our gardens
  • featuring green walls around the school grounds 
  • selling KPS "Keep Cups" to eliminate paper coffee cups

Students and staff manage, observe and monitor our school's resources, waste and physical surroundings, then take on activities to protect and improve our school and the local environment.
