Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our Grade 6 students had a great experience at Kearney. The learning was rich, the Kearney staff was great and the setting was perfect. I wish to thank Mr. Montuno and Ms. Nikelotopolous for their great leadership and support. We all had fun!

Here are a few pics of our Kearney adventure
