During the lockdown period, teachers have been keen to make sure that pupils are still embracing King’s co-curricular activities. Therefore, we have now launched a Clubs & Activities Hub where parents and pupils can keep up to date with the latest co-curricular activities in King’s Seniors.
Dr Jane Byrne, Senior Deputy Head has said:
“We have had an incredibly positive response from students about these activities but are keen for as many as possible to take part during this period and enjoy the King’s community spirit remotely.
“Our ideal is that students should take part in three co-curricular activities, at least one of which should be sporting and good for physical wellbeing. We hope they enjoy taking part in the activities as much as our staff have enjoyed preparing and running them.”
Teachers have been able to adapt the usual co-curricular activities to an online version where pupils can still take part in activities such as:
– Maths Challenge Club, which has new problem solving questions each week for pupils to discuss
– A vibrant Music schedule to ensure pupils can still take part in their musical practices
– King’s School Rowing Club (KSRC) have created training programmes and live training schedules
– The PE department have put together a fantastic array of different activities and challenges
– The Economics Society are hosting weekly Q&A sessions, the first one being with the Vice President at Barclays Investment Bank
– A ‘Working Well’ five week programme has been devised by our Mental Fitness Ambassadors supporting students who are feeling anxious
– CCF will be doing collaborative activities focussed around leadership, planning skills, and IT skills
– The Tycoon Business Enterprise team are currently preparing their business plans
– A whole host of library resources including brilliant book clubs for different year groups hosted by our Head Librarian, Mrs Ros Harding
– The Drama department are currently running four separate remote rehearsals for the upcoming production of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe across the week to ensure that all year group casts are catered for
Pupils also have the opportunity to take part in Enrichment activities each Friday afternoon which could include an act of community/kindness, a creative or academic challenge or a practical skill.
