want our students to find happiness in life
To be confident of their own abilities and of who they are,
Yet to be responsible for their own actions and
Considerate of the needs and feelings of others.
As society becomes increasingly more complex and competitive
The prime objective of a school is to help every student
Discover success on whatever individual journey
Their personal skills and talents take them.
It is our mission as a school...to achieve this objective
...For EVERY student."

Our Daily Affirmation Statement
I am the only person in
the world who can stop me from being the best that I can be.
TKIS is in many ways, a very special school. We
are committed to 'excellence' in everything we do, yet clearly
there are many things that a small, academically-oriented school
located in a rural area simply can not do. We therefore take the
approach that if we can't do it right, then we probably
shouldn't do it at all.
For this reason...
we don't have an 'internal' instrumental
we offer only a small range of team sports
our Manual Art's program could only be
described as 'Introductory'
and our 'Home Economics' offerings are
limited to a small number of Senior school students.
all our traditional academic subjects offer
one of the best student-to-teacher ratios in the country
our Golf and other Mastery Programs are
equal to anything in the world
our pathways to university study programs
'the safety, security and happiness of our
students' is our number one priority
constantly improving our technology
resources is one of our highest priorities
we have a strong focus on 'whole person
education' offering structured programs in subjects like
First Aid, Self-Defence, Literacy, Careers Guidance, etc.
and our Arts programs are blessed with some
of the finest teaching staff available.
Indeed the quality of our teaching staff is a
constant source of pride to the school and the standards of
behaviour and work ethics of our students is exemplary.
We are a good school and we constantly strive to
The school's mission, like that of our
students... is to be the best that we can be.
