A Pop Star at HKS!
16th February 2018
Our last Friday of this half term has been a busy and exciting one! All of HKS were treated to a performance from an up and coming superstar, Asher Knight. Asher and his team sang a selection of songs including Asher's new single 'Hurricanes and Tornadoes.' Asher also shared his personal journey during the performance, he explained how bullies ruined his school life but he was able to find solace in music. A true pop star with a real message, we loved having him here at HKS.

We had quite the celebration for Pancake Day here at HKS. Lower School enjoyed a pancake race in the sports hall with plenty of competitive flipping! Pre-School had pancake fun too, they created their own paper pancakes. Pupils used lemon for paint shapes and glitter for sugar...they looked deliciously arty. Mr Collins enjoyed spending time with Pre-School and helping with their pancake artwork. There were pancakes for snacks in Day Nursery and for pudding in the kitchen, we are stuffed!
Cross Country Champions
09th February 2018
Pupils from Lower School up to Year 6 ran their socks off at the Bedstone ISA Cross Country event last week. We could not be more proud of some of the amazing results and the hard work from such a young age too. Year 3 and 4 girls came first overall in the Midlands, an outstanding achievement. Year 3 and 4 boys achieved individual placings of second and third, fantastic work. Year 5 and 6 boys and girls came second in the individual races, amazing talent. Some very worthy and notable individuals came third, sixth and ninth and they will go to the Nationals, incredible! We have to give a special mention to our Year 2 pupils who ran individually and as a team and were total superstars and running like pupils far beyond their age. Year 2 also joined forces with the pupils in Year 3 and helped achieve the aforementioned results. Well done to all involved, amazing determination and commitment, pupils to be proud of here at HKS.
Safer Internet Day and E-Safety Week
09th February 2018
Lower School pupils have been learning about the dangers of not staying safe online. Mr Bugg has been working with all the whole school to understand how to be safe online as well as an assembly conducted by Mr Collins. We want all of our pupils to know how to stay aware online and how to report anything untoward and we have been practising E-safety all this week at HKS. Year 1 created posters all about online safety after Mr Bugg showed them a clip from primary resource, Twinkl. Thank you to Mr Bugg for his hard work helping all of our pupils understand how to be safe online.
HKS Sporting Talents
29th January 2018
We are very lucky here at HKS to have such talented pupils, especially those with sporting prowess. This weekend 2 of our Year 8 pupils spent time competing and improving their individual sporting talents. One pupil has been on two wheels and the other never out of the pool.
Our swimming champion in Year 8 competed in the Worcestershire county championships during the course of the weekend and is now the County champion in 50m and 100m backstroke as well as the 100m fly and 400m individual medley. Our Year 8 pupil also came runner up in two events, 100m individual medley and 400m freestyle, and placed in the top 10 for a further two. In total she won 6 medals out of a possible 8, what a weekend she has had and we could not be more proud of her continued achievements. Another Year 8 pupil has also spent his weekend busy with sport. Our biking whiz and member of the Wyre Forest Cycle Racing Club, spent some time at the Welsh National Velodrome and he looks ever the professional. We think we have a definite future Chris Hoy in our midst! Well done to our pupil for continuing his commitment to his sport. Always pupils to be proud of here at HKS.
