QK @ The 14th Schools Science Conference: Science for Transformation
A group of Year 10 students attending the 14th Schools Science Conference at the University of Westminster on the 26th April. They got to meet professionals from a wide variety of fields, all involved in using science to transform medicine. They were paramedics, pathologists, biochemists, dieticians, biochemical engineers and more. The fascinating keynote speaker shared an inspirational story of how a new way of measuring brain activity was transforming child health worldwide. As well as hearing from different scientists, students got involved – from taking measurements of their own heart, looking at different pathogens down a microscope or handling a 3D print of an actual professor’s brain scan! In one workshop they found out whether they had or didn’t have a gene related to tasting broccoli, and how much snot we all create in a day.
The students also presented their own science project, on how long sunscreen is effective for, to an audience of around 200. They were clear and engaging and able to deal with questions from the judging panel. When the conference website is updated there will be official photos put up: http://science4u.info
8C2/Pc met volunteers from Solidarity Sports (http://www.solidaritysports.org/) today, a local charity which works with disadvantaged children from London to make their lives happier. The class will be fundraising for the charity and as you can see they have plenty planned. You’ll see them with t-shirts and wristbands while fundraising, please do try and support them if you can.
Ira and canine companion Abi visits 8A1 to work with the local charity ALL DOGS MATTER
For their citizenship class Year 8 students invited Ira, the founder of All Dogs Matter ,to QK so they could find out how they can help volunteer and fundraise for them.
The charity rescues and re-homes abandoned dogs and the students were impressed to hear why the charity is so beneficial to dogs, lonely and ill humans too!
The dogs regularly visit sick children in Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The students from 8A1 are about to enter a vigorous fundraising campaign!

On Tuesday 23 May 2017, our U16s boys went up against King Solomon. QK dominated the majority of the game, but towards the end of the game they allowed King Solomon to get back into the game. Although it was an U16 game I played the U14 boys mainly as it is good practice for next season when they will have to play up a year.
The final score was QK-51 King Solomon 48.
Here are Video Highlights of the game
Hope you enjoy!
