Year 10 and 12 Art Students Visit To Boughton House
We were delighted to be given the opportunity to take several of our Year 10 and 12 Art students to Boughton Houserecently for a tour of the estate.
KBA has been privileged enough to be asked to design the new sign for the village of Weekley, and several of our talented artists were able to meet with staff from both the estate and the village in order to find out more about the history of our local area, to aid this design process.
Students will now be tasked with designing the new sign, and we are planning to have an exhibition of this wonderful art work during the Easter holidays in Boughton House. We are so proud to be involved in this special project, and we will share regular updates about the design process with you all.
This week’s PSHE
Votes For Schools
This week’s Vote Topic focuses on a certain couple who have made the news a lot in recent weeks: Harry and Meghan. In the lessons, voters reflect on some recent headlines and consider the role of the public and the press in driving fascination with the Sussexes. They will then give their definitive verdict on whether or not they are interested in the Royal couple,
Have a look at the lesson – how would you vote?
This week there is no life lesson session due to the teacher training day on Friday 7th January
Student school council
At KBA we have an active student council who would like to hear your thoughts and opinions – they have placed a feedback box at main receptions for any comments you wish to make.
