Enterprise Day & ‘The Wedding’

IMG_2604The whole school took part in an Enterprise Day on Friday the 7th of April. The theme for the day was ‘The Wedding’.

All classes worked in six teams to tackle the challenge of attracting a couple to celebrate their wedding at a hotel.

Students had to consider everything from the food, entertainment costs, cake, decorations, stationary, room hire and photography. All students had a role in their group and the Financial Wizards of the group worked on the final customer quote by working out total costs, price per person and profit.

The activity was run in collaboration with Northumberland Education Business Partnership and local Business Ambassadors. Student feedback from the day was extremely positive and the Business Ambassadors were complimentary about the school and said that it had been a pleasure to work with our students.

Keep up the good work at KEVI.

Celebrating Success with a Book – Our Word Millionaires!

When a student achieves 70% or more on a book quiz, the words in the book are totalled. When this total reaches a million, the student can choose a book to keep as a record of their success. These prizes are funded with commission earned from the annual Book Fair, so prizes are selected from the Scholastic UK website.

Some of the students have read more than 3,000,000 words this year and every million earns them another book!

Austria 2018

Ninety Year 7’s spent a week in Austria from 7th July-14th July 2018. It was an early start of 6.30am on the Saturday morning as we made our way to Dover and then travelled through France and Germany overnight before arriving in Wagrain, Austria where we stayed in Hotel Oberwimm.

The children took part in a range of activities and excursions which included tobogganing, white water rafting, paddle boarding, kayaking, high ropes, sailing, and tubing as well as visiting the local water park, Hallein Saltmine and the world’s largest ice cave. The views were breathtaking and staff and children had great fun!

A fantastic week was had by all and we are so very proud of all of the children for overcoming their fears and taking advantage of the fantastic experiences on offer. We are especially proud that we were complimented on the manners and behaviour of our children on more than one occasion.
