WELCOME TO KINETON HIGH SCHOOL

The Big Apple

Over the half term holidays Kineton students were travelling the world visiting different countries in trips that took them across the globe.

A group of 21 Sixth Form and Year 11 students jetted off for a five day cultural trip to New York. They visited many of the sights including the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty, the 9/11 Memorial Park and the One World Trade Centre Observatory.  They also took in a show on Broadway, saw the New Jersey Devils play and the Harlem Globetrotters at Madison Square Gardens.  They even had the chance to go ice skating in Central Park and to have lunch at the Hard Rock Café.

It was an utterly memorable experience in the magical Big Apple.

KHS students amongst first to receive Heart Shield training

Just before half term 150 Kineton High School students received emergency life support skills training from Warwickshire Fire and Rescue staff.

The Heart Shield Project is a new initiative that offers secondary school students the chance to be trained in skills such as CPR and in how to use a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD/AED).  The initiative funded by Public Health Warwickshire aims to help address the UK’s low level of bystander CPR  – at 30% it lags behind many other countries where CPR skills are more routinely taught in schools.

The training session started with a short presentation and DVD and then moved quickly onto hands on sessions using practice dummies and AED units.

Kineton High School is the first in the south of the County to receive this training which has been incorporated into one of our termly off timetable enrichment days.

Pictured here are some of the Year 9 students with Fire Service staff and of course their practice dummies.

The Race 2017

Inter-house competitions are a regular part of life at Kineton High and this half term saw the return of The Race – an indoor athletics competition run at lunch times.

After a week of knockout heats yesterday saw the four remaining teams, ADL/DM, HOY/NH, AIN/MJS and ADL/JST, competing in the final. It was a very exciting and hotly contested event. The teams had lots of support cheering on from the side-lines, you could probably hear the shouts resounding round the sports hall.

Many congratulations to the winners this year ADL/JST and well done to all the participants who took part and represented their form groups.

Matilda

Matilda The Musical – Another Kineton High School success story – a magnificent performance by all involved!

One of our parent governors summed it up marvellously:

‘What a show!  I was truly amazed by the skilled acting of every student that took part in what was a ‘bobby-dazzler’ of a show.  The work that went into this really did display a level of commitment that speaks volumes of the school and its staff. Everybody I spoke after the show was buzzing with admiration for such a polished and finely acted performance.  Particularly impressive were Emily Marcroft as Matilda – such a fine voice – and the person who stole the show, Kai Boucher as Miss Trunchball – such comedic talent in one so young!’
