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.
The winter months limit the amount of outdoor activities we can do with our pupils, but a set of floodlights could solve this. We would certainly be able to extend our winter practice times for some of our sports and, as these are lightweight, portable and do not need a generator, they could easily be set up anywhere around the school grounds.
Our art department want to go old school! As the pupils produce their wonderful pieces of work, our art teacher would like to photograph their creation and add the photo to their evaluation sheet. To do this effectively and instantly they are hoping for a donation of £200 to buy a Polaroid camera and a starter pack of film. If this project interests you please feel free to contribute some, if not all of the £200.
To help us to distinguish the routes between the King's Loop, football pitches and rugby pitches we need a large number of coloured flags. At the moment (with our smaller pitches) it is just a sea of red flags. The new flags would help the pupils plan their running route, and easily identify the rugby or football pitches (when parents are allowed back to watch it will really help them too).
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.
