Bravo!! SUPERB job!! Mahalo for supporting our first annual QKS Campus Beautification Community Work Day.

90 volunteers from our school community (represented by different stakeholder groups) beautified our campus, and strengthened the HOME-SCHOOL-COMMUNITY partnership.

As a result of the fruits of their labor and hard work our campus looks simply AMAZING!

Volunteers painted, raked leaves, swept, picked up rubbish, pulled weeds, prepared the garden boxes, planted potted plants under the marquee, and power washed!

This special event wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of all our wonderful and awesome volunteers. A HUGE MAHALO to EVERYONE who volunteered.
