Open Day 2022

Kerry Street Community School is a small progressive independent primary school with small, multi-age classes, active and enthusiastic parental involvement and a strong focus on individual, community and environmental wellbeing.

Join us for our Open Day to celebrate our school and community, purchase from our student-created market stalls, listen to live music, visit our classrooms, play in our Wilderness Area, build huts with Educated by Nature and much more!

Saturday 3rd September 10:00am – 1:00pm

To commence our Open Day at 10:00am, Aunty Marie Taylor will Welcome us to Country with a traditional Smoking Ceremony. We hope that you can make it to stand together and join us in acknowledging the Whadjuk Nyungar people as the Traditional Owners of the Land on which our school is built.

Travel and Parking

We encourage sustainable transport methods. Please consider public transport, walking, riding, and scooting. Bike racks will be available at the entrance of the event. Minimal parking is available on the school site. We kindly ask that attendees consider our neighbours and council rules when choosing a place to park. You may NOT park on the median strip along Forrest Road, or on neighbours’ verges. Parking is available at the rear of our Wilderness Area, or you may choose to Park and Stride from Baker Square, Dixon Park or Davilak Reserve. Accessible parking spots are available in both school carparks.

Waste Management

Our Open Day is a Waste Wise event. Please be mindful of your waste contribution on the day and use the appropriate bins for the disposal of litter. Images are displayed on our bins to guide you.

Food, Beverages and Market Stalls

Our Open Day is a CASH ONLY event. There are no eftpos or ATM facilities onsite. Handmade products created by our Year 5/6 students will be available to purchase from our Market Stalls. All proceeds from these sales will go towards an End-of-year celebration chosen and planned by our Upper Primary Class. A range of food and beverages will be sold on the day. All proceeds from these sales will go towards our Parent Forum, who contributes to school-based projects.

KSCS promotes sustainable practices and will have reusable plates, cutlery, and glassware. We ask that all items are returned to cleaning stations.

Water fountains are also available. We encourage you to bring a refillable water bottle.

Thank you to City of Cockburn for sponsoring our event.
