PE staff and students wear moustaches & onesies to raise funds for Movember


Kingsbury High School, Physical Education staff, Mr Donald, Mr Froy, Mr Ali and Mr Nilsson grew and styled some fantastic moustaches for Movember this year.

In addition to raising a massive £520 for charity, an event was held, where students and staff were asked to wear onesies and fake moustaches to raise awareness of prostate and testicular Cancer.  Sixth Form students, Xhesilda Kurtaj and Natalie Barnett, supported the cause dressed in onesies and raised over £100 in a day.

The PE Department would like to thank all staff and students for their kind donations to this great cause.

Festive Mini Fair

The Kingsbury High School Library’s fourth, Annual, Mini Fair was well attended by the lower school students and members of staff, who enjoyed the festivities by taking a chance on the ‘Lucky Dip’, buying Raffle tickets – ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ when they lost or won a prize, buying bargain books and confectionery and supporting the Year 8s in their wonderful efforts to raise funds for the ‘St Luke’s Hospice’ Charity.

We raised over £100 in the lunch hour, the money is going to be used to buy books especially requested by students and a donation was also made to support the Year 8s work for St. Luke’s.

Wise Up! Face Up! Stand Up!


For their London 2012 Olympic Legacy, our Year 8 students are adopting the theme of courage. Under the banner, Wise Up! Face Up! Stand Up!, they are taking up the challenge of supporting the courage of families who are affected by cancer. Through the school year, they will be raising money for, and awareness of, St Luke’s Hospice, The Teenage Cancer Trust and Stand up to Cancer, part of Cancer Research UK.

Students are taking part in a number of Santa themed fundraising activities for St Luke’s Hospice, including running in the charities annual Santa Dash on Sunday 9th December, volunteering in the charity’s shops and collecting donations from staff and fellow students.

Community and Events Fundraiser for St Luke’s Hospice, Kate Gammell (back row, centre) said “It’s lovely to have the support of Kingsbury High School students and Staff. It costs £3 million a year to run St Luke’s, so the support of a local school is so important. This year’s Santa Dash will be our fourth and is set to be our best yet! We hope to raise over £10,000!”

The St Luke’s Santa Dash takes place on Sunday 9th December 2012 at Claremont High School, Claremont Avenue, HA3 0UB.

Registration is £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s. Price includes: entry into the Santa Dash, a Santa Suit (to take home), finishing medal and a well deserved hot drink and mince pie at the finishing line!

Moustache Mayhem at Chess Club!

KHS MoBros and MoSistas took part in a Movember Special Chess Club on Wednesday 5th December. The aim was to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Students and staff enjoyed playing chess whilst sporting various styles of moustaches including “the scoundrel,” “the Casanova,” and many more. Along with a great turnout, we raised money for the cause, adding to the Movember fund with a grand total of £233.55 Thank you all for your support and donations!
