Enhancing King's Projects
King’s Hall continues to thrive and grow in large part due to the philanthropic tendencies of our extended community. Not wishing to rest on our laurels, we meet regularly with house parents and teachers to discuss how to make the King’s experience even better. Together we have identified the items below as enhancements which sit outside the provision of the School’s day to day budget.
By making a donation towards these items you will have an immediate impact on the experience of our pupils. You can make a general contribution or, if you prefer, specify a particular item you would like to fund. Even a small contribution makes a huge difference. Thank you on behalf of the whole of the King’s Community.
There’s so much potential for bringing the curriculum to life using virtual and augmented reality experiences, from visiting far-flung corners of the world to holding the human heart in your hands. We would like to introduce this technology into our classroom, starting with a set of eight. They will be stored in a portable, rugged storage and charging case, making sure that they are safe, secure and fully charged, ready for the children to use at any time.
There are many benches around school, but for outside the new Science Faculty we would like something a little different. Something bright and colourful that will last for many years. The bench we would like will not rot, warp or crack, it does not need painting or varnishing, is UV Protected and made from 100% recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable. Our vision of this bench along with some soft planting would really enhance the outdoor space.
Permanent, wall-mounted speakers for Arts Centre would be used not only for all musical and dramatic productions but also would be in place for all general use in the Arts Centre. This would increase the sound quality in the room dramatically as current equipment is outdated and does not convey the high-quality functionality of the new, recently-donated sound desk.
We would like to add some outdoor educational artwork to the Rose Garden. We have initially selected a set of 12 circular boards for identifying common garden birds. Includes: chaffinch, goldfinch, robin, blackbird, sparrow, wren, thrush, starling, pigeon, blue tit, wagtail and jackdaw. All printed on 3mm foamex, they are totally weatherproof and will not fade.
We would like to add some painted games to the concrete floor in the Rose Garden. This will give the children even more variety of things to do in break times, help them further understand the value of cooperation and compromise, thus promoting both teamwork and an active, healthy lifestyle.
