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.

Ukraine Appeal

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.
