KIS Wall Of Fame

We honour those who have come before us, who have aimed for the stars and reached the mountain tops. It’s not just the past, it’s the future. It’s not just about Kamo Intermediate, it’s the world. It’s a message of excellence EVERYWHERE!

They practised, they worked hard and they succeeded. Congratulations to these chosen few. Proof that dedication and consistency will lift you among the stars.
