British Heart Foundation Fundraising Day

As part of the Excel day, Year 8 students took part in the BHF All Star Games. Three main sporting events ran throughout the day; dodge ball, skipping and ping pong cup challenge.

Well done to all the students who took part, despite the freezing conditions outside!

Huge thanks to all the students and their families/friends who sponsored the event which raised over £300 in total. 20% of the funds raised will go towards 3 legged ties which are going to be used for the school’s Sports Relief and Sports Day events this year. More information about BHF All Star Games can be found on https://www.bhf.org.uk/get-involved/events/schools-events/allstars

Special thanks and well done to all the Year 10 students who ran the events!

If you are interested in running a fundraising event at the school, or would like to help volunteer at any of the up and coming fundraising events, please speak to a member of faculty or to Tara Randall. All school fundraising ideas welcome!

Kingsbury Jump Off for the British Heart Foundation

the_bhf_kingsbury_jump_off-26

On Tuesday 9th June 2015, Kingsbury High School hosted the Kingsbury Jump Off to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Year 5 students from Oliver Goldsmith Primary School received training in basic skipping skills prior to the event and then took part in a two hour sponsored skip-a-thon on the day. Lead by Kingsbury High School’s Year 7, Year 9 and Year 10 Sports Leaders, the Year 5 students rotated through skipping stations learning various techniques and exercises at each stop.

The money raised will help fund essential research into the causes and treatment of heart disease, patient care and support.
