KHS Friends Association Summer Fayre

KHS Friends Association held their first Summer Fayre for many years  at the Lower School… it was a well attended event, with many students, families and staff members helping out on the day to set up, run stalls and clear up. Parents/families arrived with delicious international food and drink to sell, students made a huge effort in making wonderful friendship bracelets, offering facepainting and baked cakes/biscuits to sell on the day – well done to all for their amazing efforts and support. The Tombola stall was particularly popular on the day! thanks to Teresa Keating for running this stall and to the Holy Innocents Church, Kingsbury for lending us their Tombola Drum again.

This event was proudly sponsored by Winkworth Estates Kingsbury, who also kindly donated a Kindle E-Reader as top raffle prize on the day. Other fantastic raffle prizes were also generously donated by parents, staff and the following local businesses;

Mayfair Sports, Pro Soccer Coaching, Kleen Canteen Water Bottles, Explore Learning, Andreea from Glamsee and the Pied Piper Newsagent (Kingsbury). Asda Wembley have also offered raffle prizes for the next KHS event!

On the day, a 5 a-side football league tournament was also brilliantly run by local club Harrow Stars FC who reported that the standard on show was very good and everyone played in the spirit. The U7’s tournament was won by Wikanda Forever, who remained unbeaten throughout the whole tournament playing 6, winning 5 and drawing 1, a special mention to Kayden DaSilva who we selected as the standout player in the U7 category. The mixed age group category was won by Insert Name FC, they also remained unbeaten throughout the tournament, playing 6, winning 6, a special mention for Richardo Rus who we selected as the standout player in the mixed age group category. Top scorer over over both age groups was won by Denis from Insert Name FC who managed to bag himself 13 goals over the course of the day and walk away with the top goal scorer trophy.

Harrow Stars FC would like to extend an offer to all KHS students wishing to play regular football to come and train with them. Harrow Stars FC is a grassroots club with teams ranging from u7 – u16, they play matches every Sunday (seasonal) at KHS Lower School. They train every Saturday at: Centenary Park, Culver Grove, Stanmore, HA7 2NW. See website for more details: http://www.harrowstars.co.uk

The event raised nearly £700 in total – a great achievement! As well as raising funds for the school, these events are also about bringing communities together and building relationships with families and local communities.

Special thanks to support staff and teaching staff who gave their time and support on the day. These events could not take place without the continued support and efforts of staff, students and families. The KHS Friends Association continues to grow, however we always welcome new members!

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.

Sports Day 2017

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.
