On Thursday 26 September Kingsbury High School held the
auditions for this year’s school production High School Musical. It was great
to see the hall buzzing with students from all the year groups, a fantastic
turn out. Each student was asked to act out a scene from the play and those
auditioning for the main characters had to sing an extract from ‘Breaking Free’.
The Schools’ Expressive Art department is thrilled to have
so many talented students at Kingsbury High School and it was great to see them
shine. The audition panel had a great time and really enjoyed the afternoon. Students
performed to the judging panel consisting of Miss Shovelton, Miss Eastmond and Mr Cumbers. The talent in the
room was outstanding and the judges have been set a big challenge trying to decide
on the parts. The cast will be announced early next week.
Further details about the show will be announced shortly,
but this is set to be another exciting year for the performance students and
staff here at Kingsbury High School.
It was great fun to welcome the current Year 6s from Roe Green Junior School and Oliver Goldsmith to our Olympic morning with lessons on fencing with QPR Trust, volleyball with Willesden Volleyball Club, skateboarding with Team Rubicon and basketball with Coach Jenner.
Almost 240 Year 12s started the sixth form on Monday 9 September. Record number of external students joined the Sixth Form this year.
Year 12 enjoyed a carousel of sessions including advice from former Head Girl, Sara Dehvari, studying History at the University of Cambridge about how to be successful in the Sixth Form, along with a team building exercise, freshers fair to sign up for opportunities and an opportunity to meet more alumni to get advice about options at university and some careers.
Year 12 also signed up for Unifrog, a website to help with university and apprenticeships options as well as Pathways CTM, a company who provide a range of opportunities to meet top companies throughout the year during which students find out about career options.
