Get Into Teaching Experience Day - Thursday 21st November
On Thursday 17th October, the U13s competed in the annual EFL cup at the AT7 centre, organised by Sky Blues in the Community.
During the group stages of the competition, the U13s played both Sidney Stringer and Cardinal Wiseman School, beating both with ease and without conceding a single goal.
The U13s then went on to play Ernesford Grange in the semi-final.
The girls played exceptionally well and demonstrated a high level of skill throughout their performance, resulting in another easy win and clean sheet, securing their place in the final of the competition.
President Kennedy School will face West Coventry Academy at St Andrews, the home of Birmingham City FC, in the final.
The winners will go on to represent Coventry in a bid to reach the regional finals, with the ultimate prize being the chance to play the grand final at Wembley stadium.
Congratulations to all involved on an outstanding performance, we wish the girls the best of luck in their upcoming final at St Andrews.
Team: Cassidy Graham, Emily Smith, Cadey Lapworth, Lillia Patterson, Lucia Coakley, Kelly Auluck, Kiera Ferguson, Rebecca Ferguson, Lexie Stabler, Scarlett Perkins

Year 12 students had the opportunity to work with 'Enabling Enterprise' to reflect on how they are going to achieve their dream chosen career.
Over the course of the day, students applied essential skills to answer the question: What career is right for me?
They explored different career sectors by trying out industry specific challenges. Students took part in three activities:
Applying Teamwork in Business and Administration by generating ideas to spend and save money in a business; Applying Creativity in Artistic and Creative Skills by designing a new marketing campaign; and Applying Staying Positive in Health and Wellbeing by writing a return to work plan.
As they progressed through the challenges, students reflected on what they have learnt about each career sector and whether they were interested in these types of jobs.
Amadeus Parekh Pross said:
“Thinking about these skills in the context of future careers has been a challenge. I don't yet know what I want to do after studying - but I really recognise skills like team work and staying positive are going to be very important for me”
Tarun Poonia added:
“The Future Focus Challenge has made clear to our students, that no matter what field of study or career path they take, the essential skills are going to be increasingly important to support them in their learning and in securing jobs and career success".

Year 13 students, Reyna Sandhar, Molly Stanley and ourselves visited the Rotary Club this week.
Reyna and Molly gave a presentation showing the work we carried out whilst we were in Peru. They were fascinated to hear about all the things students had achieved and the experiences gained whilst helping the community in Moray. They were then able to conduct a question and answer session where the Rotary members asked many questions about their trip and the qualities they gained from their specific experiences.
We would like to give thanks to the Rotary Club for its continual support in school via projects such as The Interact Club where the Year 7 Bridge Council focus on "Service Beyond Self."
This encourages students to focus on fundraising on a local and international level as well as raising the profile of projects such as 'The Purple Community Fund'.
This is where ring pulls are collected and sent to third world countries to help local people make and sell bags and purses from the ring pulls.
They have also been instrumental in supporting the Peru trip itself. Ray Thompson and Judy Ryan actively support President Kennedy School and our students.
We hope to have many more years of working together to better the lives of our students as well as the local and wider community.

President Kennedy School students in Post 16 were involved in a Sport England initiative called 'Tass' last year, that ran in conjunction with Coventry University.
It is a Dual Career Accreditation Scheme which recognises an education institution’s commitment to dual career support for talented athletes who are in full time education.
On Tuesday night we were awarded the 'School of the Year' trophy, for our dedication and enthusiasm to the project.

This prestigious award has been given in recognition of the effort and commitment of students who have worked hard, demonstrating their skills and talent, being in the school's orchestra and part of the music enrichment provided by the department.
Thank you to all staff involved and in particular, Mr Layton who made this possible.

On Tuesday evening, President Kennedy School opened its doors to prospective Year 7 students and their parents and carers.
The turnout was high, proving yet again that the school is an extremely popular choice locally. Every visiting family attended a presentation delivered by Mr Clayton, visited The Bridge and sampled engaging activities provided by a number of departments including Design and Technology, Science and MFL.
Thank you to students and staff who helped make this year’s event such a success.
Students from Year 7 visited The Belgrade Theatre, completing a workshop for the Shakespeare Schools Festival.
They participated in a range of fabulous warm up techniques, and with professional directors, helped direct a scene from the play 'Othello'.
The play will be performed on Wednesday 6th November at The Belgrade Theatre.
