What Others Are Saying

We have been fortunate to host some guests from inter-state and overseas recently and we have included what they have written about KVS or our sister school Phillip Island Village School:

 

ALEXIS HOLZMAN received a grant from the Plastino Scholar Program at the University of Delaware, where she is studying, to travel to Australia and spend three weeks at KVS to look at our approach to education. Alexis shared her experience on her blog.

 

Education explorers TOM AND BEX spent an afternoon at PIVS in April 2016 and posted their reflections on their blog.  Their blog covers their journey visiting alternative schools around Australia and overseas to help them decide the type of school they would like to start.  The blog is a rare glimpse into how ‘alternative’ can have as many differences as it does similarities.

 

ALYS MENDUS is a PhD student studying at the University of Hull in the UK. She visited nine alternative education settings while in Australia to conduct research for her thesis into self-actualisation through schooling. She spent the day at KVS in March 2016 and shared her observations in the following article.
