Business of Enterprise Winners 2020!
Written by V Harrop
Congratulations to our Year 10 students (Kizzie Mabberley, Lois Godfrey, Shannon Harman, Cameron Harris, Lilia Thomson-Amato) for winning the ‘Best Marketing Prize’ in the annual county Business of Enterprise Competition 2020. Prizes include signed certificates, £50 Amazon voucher for each student and a trophy for the school.
Comments from the winners:
Our idea was called ‘Reliance Watch’. We first thought of our idea and how we would make the materials, develop the marketing and calculate prices. Shannon and Cameron drew and designed the watch. Since this watch is for the deaf and blind we decided to contact the KAB (Kent Association for the Blind) to see what they thought of the idea and they loved it and wanted us to present it to them. This watch is made to help the deaf and blind throughout day to day life and it has a rounded triangle shape to stand out to make it unique. To show it to EBP (East Kent Business Partnership) we decided to make a presentation. We had to present it (back in February) in the school hall in front of our whole year group and 4 judges from EBP. We were selected as the runners up from our school and our business idea was entered into the County competition against all the other schools in the area. To improve our presentation, during lockdown, we made a short video explaining our ideas and presentation further. We feel very excited, overwhelmed and grateful that we won the ‘Best Marketing’ prize and we are happy that we got the opportunity to take part in this competition.
Year 11 Raising Achievement Meeting
Written by V Harrop
In order to support Year 11 through their GCSEs, we would usually hold a raising achievement meeting (RAM) for parents and students.
Unfortunately we are unable to do that this year, but we have created a google site with all of the information you would normally get at this meeting.
There is subject information for core subjects, as well as revision strategies and well being tips for our Year 11s. Please see the link below for all of this information, and please get in touch if you have any questions at all.
We are so disappointed that we can’t welcome Year 6 pupils and parents into school this year, to show off everything we do here as we usually would on a traditional open evening.
However, our staff and students have been hard at work creating some great videos to allow you to see everything that KES has to offer, but virtually!
There’s a tour of the school, chats with current and past students, messages from the staff, subject information, everything you could want to see. Please click the link below to see all of these amazing videos!
