  • KS3 Netball Girls Impress Players at Established Club

    Published 31/01/19

    Last Wednesday evening, the KS3 netball players attended a trial at Bablake School for Henley Netball Club. This was a great opportunity to showcase their talents, as well as demonstrate their commitment and dedication that they already display at President Kennedy School.

    The session consisted of a variety of drills that put their skills to the test, followed by game play against competitive club members, who had been with the club since a young age.

    At first, the girls were nervous to play against such experienced players. However, once settled, their seamless performance proved how naturally talented our players are!

    We are delighted to report that all of the players have been invited to join the club after February half term.

    Well done all!

  • Year 7 Support Langar Aid Campaign

    Published 14/01/19

    During December, our Year 7 students showed immense generosity by supporting Langar Aid's 'Bag of Warmth Appeal'. This is a campaign to provide comfort to those who do not have access to winter essentials, especially those who are faced with homelessness and hardship during the winter months.

    In order to fill the bags, students and staff alike donated items such as hats, scarves and toiletries. These bags were distributed around the West Midlands to provide comfort and support to the homeless, isolated and vulnerable.

    I would like to thank all who donated. It truly made a huge difference in this cold weather.

    A special thank you to Rob Bromfield for his generous donation of shallots from our school garden.

    These shallots were used to cook meals for Langar Aid service users.
