Sports Leader Event

On Wednesday, seven of our Year 9 sports leaders lead events at the London Qualifier’s of the Sports hall Athletics Competition at the Copper Box. The tournament had over 400 students competing, with a Secondary School competition in the morning and a Primary School competition in the afternoon. Our Sports Leaders were in charge of the field events for the day, which consisted of the shot putt, triple jump, vertical jump and the standing long jump.

The event organiser praised the students at how fantastic they were at being able to lead strongly, showing great enthusiasm towards the events they were in charge of.

Jack Petchey Award 2017

Jack Petchey Awards 2017

This week QK were proud to have eight of our students formally recognised for their efforts and achievements during the course of last year. The winning students were entertained throughout the evening by aspiring musicians and they left having been truly inspired by the nature of being part of such a large awards evening. Our students were a credit to their families,their form tutors, year teams and above all themselves. If you do teach the winning students shown below then please take the time to ask them about their achievement there is a video link too so form tutors can share the moment with their tutor group friends. Click here to see how they won their awards.

Click here to see our students collect their awards…….   It was particularly impressive to see Mohamed make his own way up the steps and across the stage to receive his award!

“Winners!
Congratulations to Shaquan White, who today won the Westminster Young Chef of the Year competition with a fish dish to die for, along with a baked guacamole starter and the best fruit salad ever made. Reem Husseini came a close second with a similarly excellent menu.

Parent Advisory Service

All Parents and families are invited to come along and meet Money Mastermind Guest Speaker, Daryl Harper, who will be teaching us about the financial fundamentals – ‘HOW MONETY WORKS’

Money and Finance is a subject that many people are either never taught in school, they don’t understand or, more often than not, they shy away from.

This lack of knowledge and financial illiteracy has left many people struggling to get out of the rat race- the monotony of just surviving and living from pay cheque to pay cheque.
This is your opportunity to learn some simple steps that can impact and change your life dramatically.

It’s time to learn how to:

– Win the money game
– Protect your family
– Get your money to work as hard for you as you work for it
– Accelerate your mortgage
– Pay consumer debts off faster
– Save
– Make and get better value for your money
– Position yourself for a comfortable retirement.
Refreshments will be available
