Ken-X is a new, 3-year program designed to engage and challenge our brightest young minds to be successful in a rapidly-evolving future.
Students undertaking this program will have exposure to new and innovative learning experiences, and solve real-world problems with the aid of emerging technologies, viewed through the lens of self, community and the world.
Learning experiences have a strong focus on STEM/STEAM, and are structured to support the development of the six 21st century learning competencies – critical thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration, character and citizenship.
Frequently asked questions
How does Ken-X relate to the Zenith and ICE program
From year 7 2019, Zenith and ICE will be combined to create Ken-X. We have taken the best elements of both programs, as well as rethought and rebuilt our approach based on current best practices and feedback from our community and industry professionals.
Current enrolments in Information Communication Education (ICE) and Zenith will continue as planned, with the school fully committed to continue to deliver and develop the best possible programs for these students.
Is Ken-X appropriate for my child?
The program is designed for high-performing academic students to support their intellectual development and to help them reach their full potential. Through the Kenmore Excellence Program we will engage our students in learning opportunities that will provide real-world projects and build the 21st Century skills to future-proof them for work-life beyond school.
