Last week was a memorable week for our Year 11 students. First they were invited to the Year 11 Evening of Achievement which is designed to give KHS an opportunity to recognise the tremendous amount of effort and commitment our Year 11 students have applied to all aspects of school life over the past two years in the Examination Stage.
It was a very difficult job for the teachers to decide who to nominate from a year group with so many diligent students, and KHS is fortunate to have such well motivated, trustworthy and courteous students who manage to fulfill their potential. This is only made possible by the continued support of both parents and staff.
140 students were nominated by various faculties, with the awards reflecting the KHS values of PRIDE- Personal Excellence, Respect and Friendship, Inspiration, Determination and Courage and Equality.
Musical entertainment was provided by Monica Motealoo on piano, and the evening culminated with the presentation of the Headteacher’s Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for Student of the Year to Shruti Hirani, Eden Behl and Andrei Roman. Thank you also to Atiya Zia, one of our Year 12 photography students for attending the event and taking photos.
This was followed by the annual Year 11 Leavers Assembly on Friday 11th May which Year 11 students attended before their GCSE examinations commenced.
The day started with traditional shirt signings in their classes followed by a the Leavers Assembly in the School Hall. The occasion was filled with a mixture of sentiments as the students were taken through their five years at KHS. Students took to the floor to thank their Form tutors and then after a musical interlude, they were given a send off full of emotion.
”At KHS we take pride in celebrating this important moment in their lives, confident that they are ready and able to take the next step. I look forward to their future with a great sense of optimism, and wish Year 11 good health, happiness and every success.”
Special thanks go to Basmah Mohamed for her spoken word reflections on school life, and to Tahaa Doraid for his musical performance.
We wish all our Year 11s the very best for their exams and their future.
Sandip Das, Examination Stage Leader
