Representatives from Uni SA, community organisations, including the Beachport and Robe Lions Club and the Rotary club of Millicent, Wattle Range Mayor, Des Noll and the families of old scholars attended and presented awards to the deserving students.
Dr Chris Waite and his piano and ukulele students and the KIAS Choir, under the guidance of Ms Amy Williams, entertained the students, staff, families and guests.
Principal, Annie Matthews reported that the feedback about the night was positive with one parent commenting that this was the best night yet.
“We are so excited to share the achievements of our students and celebrate the end of another innovative year of learning at Kangaroo Inn Area School,” Mrs Matthews said. “Presentation Night is an ideal opportunity to showcase the work the students have done during the year and thank the staff, students and community for the ongoing support and involvement in our school.”
