  • Year 13 Students Give Presentation to the Rotary Club

    Published 28/10/19

    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.

     Miss Yafai and Mrs Arnett

  • Year 9 Rugby Team Show Pride and Determination

    Published 08/10/19
    On Wednesday 2nd October, the Year 9 rugby team travelled to play Princethorpe College.
    President Kennedy School started strongly with a 50m effort from a loose ball by Raman Chopra, successfully converted by Declan Wilson. This was followed by a trademark long distance try by  Rusciano Thomas-Riley - aka ‘The Kennedy Comet’  again, converted by Wilson, 14 - 0 after 15 minutes.
    We switched off a little and became complacent for the 20/25 minutes either side of half time with some poor handling. Tackling and a lack of concentration allowed Princethorpe to gain a 19-14 lead.
    However, President Kennedy School dug deep and scored a short range effort to bring the scores to 19-19.
    In the last minute, Rusciano did what only he can - turned on the after burners and from distance went in under the posts - converted by inspirational skipper Sam Soinne.
    A fantastic victory embodying all that we want President Kennedy students to aspire to - resilience, determination, pride and beating private schools at ‘their’ game on their patch!
    Well done lads - local derby v Coundon Court is up next.

  • International Day of Languages

    Published 08/10/19
    We had a fantastic few days celebrating 'International Day of Languages'. Year 7 and Year 8 had assemblies about the importance of languages and Year 7 saw a group of students sing in Spanish.
     The cakes that students, parents and staff made were amazing. As a result, we have raised close to £90 for the Ecuador trip so far!
    Thank you all so much for the support.
    Mrs Twyman, Head of Languages
