A cherished education service in Busselton will celebrate a milestone at the end of the month — highlighting its rapid success and growth in the South West and beyond. Originally considered a gamble when it was set up by the Casella family in 1996, Kip McGrath has turned into a highly regarded institution now celebrating its 25th anniversary. Kip McGrath South West director Colin Casella said the success of the business had been no easy feat and the institution had supported thousands of families in the South West throughout its time. “It has had to cope with crises in the form of the GFC and COVID, as well as dealing with significant school curriculum changes and all manner of technical development,” he said. Mr Casella said the key to its success was a strong commitment to its original principles. “Without doubt, if the Kip system hadn’t produced success in its students, the business would have folded very, very quickly. The reverse has happened, and the biggest proof of its success is that we have previous students, who are now parents, bringing their children to Kip,” he said. Many students from the 90s have reportedly enrolled their own children at Kip McGrath this year.
