– Secretary, Little Kingdom Education Society welcome to the world of Little Kingdom.
We hope you find the key information which you need if you’re considering the school on behalf of your daughter, son or relative.
This is just a website. No matter how professional and attractive any site may be, it will only give you an overview of procedures and systems – but it cannot convey fully what is personal and warm about our school. That is what we aim to provide in everyday life of Little Kingdom; students and adults working out together to lay good foundations.
We want each student to develop the intellectual skills which will open opportunities in the future. Equally, we emphasize daily the need for strong personal values; integrating, determination, respect for people and property, and importantly, a sense of fun.
Little kingdom is all about partnership, between you the teachers and the school to achieve what is best for the common entity i.e. your child. So if you can come and visit us and see students and teachers in action you will be warmly welcomed.
Your installation includes sample data, designed to show you some of the options you have for building your website. In addition to information about Joomla! there are two sample “sites within a site” designed to help you get started with builidng your own site.
The first site is a simple site about Australian Parks. It shows you you an quickly and easily build a personal site with just the building blocks that are part of Joomla!. It includes a personal blog, weblinks, and a very simple image gallery.
The second site is slightly more complex and represents what you might do if you are building a site for a small business, in this case a Fruit Shop.
In building either style site, or something completely different, you will probably want to add extensions and either create or purchase your own template. Many Joomla! users start off by modifying the templates that come with the core distribution so that they include special images and other design elements that relate to their site’s focus.
