Nigerian Independence Day: today we celebrated the anniversary of Nigerian Independence. Please take a look at the school website and our Twitter account: @KenderSchool
I think you’ll agree there were some amazing dresses, Ashokos and Geles in school today.
Mobile phones: it is school policy that children do not bring mobile phones into school. If we find that a child has a phone in school we will confiscate it and return it to the parent that day or at the earliest time their parent can come into school.
If, as parent, you are worried about your child’s safety when walking home from school then it is for you to make arrangements for them to be collected or walk with other children. Evidence shows that phones do not make children safer.
This policy is widely adopted by schools both Primary and Secondary.
Mental Health Support Team: will be in school next Thursday afternoon. They will be running a drop in session for any parent who wishes to find out more about Mental Health and support that is available within the borough and what support will be offered via Kender school.
Please come to the main entrance of the school from 2.30. The session will end at 3.30 just in time for you to collect your child or children. You can drop in at any time between 2.30 and 3.30 on that day: ‘Informal space, to hear more about the Lewisham MHST and to have an opportunity to meet and chat with other parents’
London Borough of Culture: Halo Hair film. We have had confirmation today that we have successfully secured funding for a film project celebrating our children’s Afro-hair. This a very exciting project which will lead to a full length feature film, watch this space for further details.
The Friends Of Kender would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who baked cakes and contributed to the Tea party!
We also want to extend our warm thanks to the staff and Kender for their continued support.
The Illuminated Art Trail: we are planning an event for staff, children and parents to take part in together. This art is located near to the South Bank and looks interesting and would be fun to see. Put this date in your dairy: Saturday 27th November.
Please look out for the posters and information on the school website.
Westminster City School: this week I was contacted by Mr. Peter Broughton, Headteacher at Westminster City School. I was delighted to hear that: ’one of your leavers … is excelling at our school.’
I draw to your attention a set of Online Masterclasses across various subjects being run by Westminster School that some of our older children, and mums and dads, might enjoy sampling.
