An integral part of the local community
Kenmore Park has enjoyed wide community support since its beginnings, back in 1968. It was a time of great change for the area, with Kenmore South State School opening in 1967 due to the ever-increasing population. The local Kenmore State High School was not far behind, opening its doors in 1972.
Approaching our 50th birthday, it gives us great pleasure to now be educating the children and grandchildren of the Kenmore Park community.
Kindy Dad James, attended Kenmore Park as a pre-schooler. Now running a successful business of his own, James is back with his son Jack, ensuring that Jack gets the same Kenmore Park start in life.
"It's been great to see Jack enjoying Kindy, especially as I have many fond memories of my time at Kenmore Park. He's always excited to go to Kindy and has made lots of friends."
Being a Kenmore Park parent offers many opportunities to be involved and take a more active part in the Kindy community. James has brought his skills to the committee table, coming on board as our Maintenance Coordinator in 2016.
Some major projects donated, organised or completed by Kindy parents include:
- 2016 (planned) - Creek bed project (Unit 1)
- 2016 (planned) - Stage 1, Landscape upgrades (Unit 2, GCBF grant)
- 2016 (planned) - Installation of a chair lift for access to lower playground (Unit 2, grant)

Another Kenmore Park parent returning to our community is Pre-Kindy teacher, Louise. Back in 2005, both Louise and her husband served as active committee members. With her own children now in school, Louise is thrilled to be educating a whole new cohort of Kenmore Park Kindy children.
