National Citizen Service (NCS) presented to our Y11 and Y12 students back in March with regards to their amazing face-to-face activity programmes that are running this summer. We have 15 King Ethelbert students that have secured places which is fantastic. For more information go to https://wearencs.com/
A few weeks ago, ex-student Jess Sterling presented to our Y12 students regarding a range of apprenticeships that TfL (Transport for London) offer. Jess is in her second year of a Business Management Degree Apprenticeship and it was really interesting to learn more about alternative routes to university in which to complete a degree.
We’ve had the following message from thos co-ordinating the KAH collections for Ukraine:
As we begin another school week, we wanted to take the time to send you a message of thanks for the support that your school community have shown to the people of Ukraine.
As of Saturday night, 8 HGV lorries have been sent to the Ukraine full with donations from all across Kent. We are fortunate that our lorries are currently getting directly into the Ukraine to those that need it more. Many aid vehicles are only allowed as far as Poland/the boarders.
On behalf of all the team at Bigjigs/Kent Help for Ukraine, please pass on our sincere thanks to your pupils, parents, staff and wider community for their tremendous effort in providing aid for those families in Ukraine. We look forward to continuing to support this project in the weeks ahead.
A successful week from 7th-11th March 2022 with a range of Career-related activities taking place. Our Year 7 students enjoyed accessing the online virtual Careers Fair platform in their PPS lessons. On Wednesday we held our annual Exhibition Fair in the hall/quad where over 40 stands represented businesses and higher education providers. Students from Year 8 to 13 spent an hour exploring the different career and education providers, many very informative conversations were had and students engaged so well, making use of the opportunities to speak to professionals from many different industries.
