The legacy of the London 2012 Olympics reverberated through the school this autumn with the return of the interhouse Handball competition. After a very successful first year Mr Daly, Head of Adlington House, organised another run of the competition for 2013. Handball is an extremely popular sport at Kineton and the atmosphere has been electrifying in the sports hall as the tutor teams worked their way through the knockout rounds.
Our congratulations go to the winning tutor group Ainslie CS who are the 2013 champions and well played to all of the teams.
11 students from Kineton High School visited Germany’s capital city, Berlin, at half term and came face to face with modern history. The four day visit included a guided tour of the fascinating city of Berlin and visits to landmarks including the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, Wannsee Memorial House and The Jewish Museum as well as the Berlin Wall Memorial Centre and Checkpoint Charlie.
The experience was extremely thought provoking and has brought to life the history they are studying.
