Kara Conti

First Elected/ Appointed: 1986

About: My daughter first attended KAS aged 11 in 1984 and I was immediately welcomed into parental involvement through Parent/Staff (now known as KASparents). Very soon I was on the committee and spent some years as Chair of Parent/Staff. I served on Council from 1986 and took over as Chair of Council in 1991 till 2000. My grandson is at the School – so the family connection continues. 

It has been an honour to serve as President of The King Alfred School Society and maintain my involvement with the School. In this role, I chair the King Alfred School Society Committee, which explores and funds educational research projects and organises the Society’s annual conference. 

I am on hand to support the Chair and Head at any time and hope that my oversight and experience can be of use to them. I have really enjoyed working with Robert, our Head, and I’m very excited about the years ahead. I have also introduced, and continued to maintain, a TEDx event for the school community, which features talks from students, staff and parents.
