About Kinfolk


We know that experience matters and that actions speak louder than words. That’s why we make sure our commitment to our school partners is backed by experience, solid practices and processes and a business philosophy that values people and relationships at the heart of what we do.

We work with schools and tertiary institutes big and small across the educational sector including government, catholic and private schools. We do not take a one size fits all approach and take pride in our ability to adapt to new environments and compliment the culture of each school community.
