Honeyball retain lead in race for House Cup
The Autumn term has been an incredible start to our second year at KAA. We have received over 700 applications for Year 7 next year, and 400 for our new Sixth Form. In November a group of year 8 German-language students enjoyed our first overseas trip to visit the Christmas markets in Cologne. The PE department hosted numerous football, netball and basketball fixtures, as well as an RBKC Table Tennis Festival. During Charity Week students raised over £2,000 for Humanitas, Oxfam, Crisis and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. The Drama and Music department hosted the second annual KAA’s Got Talent show and Christmas Concert, and a number of students went to see the West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. These are just a few of the highlights – to find out more about what our students have achieved this term take a look at the latest issue of INTREPIDUS magazine here.
We ended the fantastic term with a whole school assembly including Christmas readings, dance performances, singers, piano solos and drama scenes. Prizes – and the all-important house points – were awarded to students for 100% Attendance, Excellence and Resilience in science, English and mathematics, Reader of the Term, Performing Arts Students of the Term, and sportsmen and women of the term. Students were presented with their awards by our special guests, Sir Rod Aldridge, Lady Carol Aldridge and RBKC Mayor Robert Freeman.
There was great excitement as Mr Benson announced the current points total – after a half term filled with House Competitions (Creates Day, Charity Week and House Football) Honeyball managed to hold onto their lead from Aut1. However, the gap has closed and it looks set to be a close race for the House Cup in the Spring term.
