Thank you to everyone for their help with the Winter Fayre…. These events could not happen without the support and hard work of families, students and staff.
Special thanks to the students who performed music and ran photo-grotto on the day, brought in their beautiful handmade friendships bracelets, lovely tree decorations and gorgeous cakes/biscuits – we have some amazing talent at the school!
An update will be going out in the school’s newsletter shortly. The next Friends Association meeting will take place in the new year (date to be confirmed)
Watch this space for the Friends Association Summer event in 2018!
We had a full house for the second Friends and Family concert of the year which included 26 performers from all year groups across the school. The music ranged from compositions written in lessons to GCSE and A level solo performances with the school Choir opening the concert. The music department is incredibly proud of all of the musicians who performed.
The next concert is on Thursday 30th November in Tylers Hall at 6pm and it will feature our school ensembles.
The Music Departments Friends and Family Concerts are an informal opportunity for students to perform to their peers, friends and family in groups and as soloists. All students are welcome to perform and we heard a range of performances from across the school. Performances included the year 9 GCSE class ensemble, Simran and Kirusana performing Buffalo Soldier a piece they have learnt in their year 7 Music lessons and the Year 12 A level students performing solos. We heard pianos, guitars, ukuleles, vocals and the drum kit.
The next Friends and Family Concert is on Wednesday 15th November at 4pm and the Winter Concert is on Thursday 30th November at 6pm. The Winter concert will feature the departments ensembles.
KHS is excited to announce that this year’s school product is Peter Pan!
Over the last two weeks we were holding a number of workshops and auditions to launch the production. The auditions for the cast had an amazing turn out with over 60 students performing on stage for the chance of a main role. 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 evening.
Special thank you to the Six Formers for their help and the staff that attended and supported the evening. Congratulations to all the students involved in the production, we are excited to work with you all and make this our best show yet.
Save the date, the show dates are 12th March 2018 to the 17th March 2018.
There were some fiercely competitive events that took place and several school sports day records fell! Despite the levels of determination all the competitors showed great sportsmanship and the hordes of spectators for each event helped create fantastic atmospheres that spurred the competitors on. What was most enjoyable to see was that everyone attended participated in one way or another and it seemed that everyone enjoyed themselves. The day really was a credit to the pupils and I hope they are looking forward to next year and the sporting year ahead.
KHS celebrated two days where all the students and staff came together for the schools’ third Olympiad in its history. The Year 13 students had to organise an event for about 30 students as part of one of their modules, instead they turned to Ms Woodrow, wanting to organise an event for the whole school, over two days. They have worked hard to organise such a huge project. We are very proud of our student leaders and the work that they do for the School.
91 teams, all named after former members of staff, baked, made art, danced, completed team challenges, went on a treasure hunt, took part in quizzes and maths challenges, sang, performed, competed in relays, posed as a 50 for a drone and all ended up in the K sports hall for a big finale.
The KHS flag was handed over from the former head boy and head girl to the new student leadership team and all 1700 students sang the Kingsbury song they were taught during one of the sessions. Huge congratulations to all the students for organising this event and creating the legacy.
