Introducing our new Deputy!

Hi, my name is Kim Knowles and I am the new Deputy Principal, having commenced yesterday with a very warm welcome from all of the staff, students and parents I met on my first day.
I began my teaching career in Kalgoorlie and moved to Perth with my family ten years ago. I worked at Cloverdale Primary School before more recently spending three and a half years with the Department at Statewide Services, supporting schools across the state as Principal Consultant with the Literacy and Numeracy branch. I am committed to leading continuous improvement in the teaching and learning of all students and welcome the opportunity to be part of the leadership team at Kapinara.
I am very excited to be joining the Kapinara community and I look forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you and your children over the coming years.
