Head of House
MISS KATHERINE HAWKE
I am extremely proud to be Head of Kielburger House and it is my job to ensure every member of our house feels encouraged to excel, knowing that individually their contribution counts towards making our house stronger. We, as a house, pride ourselves on our ethos and culture; that we will work hard for one another and know that everyone of us can be successful. I am passionate that students enjoy and take pride in being part of Kielburger house. We do this through encouraging all students to do their best in all they undertake, whether it is getting 1’s in lessons, participating in extra-curricular activities or during specific house competitions. Craig Kielburger shows us that differences can be made but you have to be willing to put the effort in in order to achieve this. I want Kielburger students to believe that they too can make a difference through inspiring others, taking action, and achieving.
