Ukraine Appeal

We’ve had the fol­low­ing mes­sage from thos co-​ordinating the KAH col­lec­tions for Ukraine:

As we begin another school week, we wanted to take the time to send you a mes­sage of thanks for the sup­port that your school com­mu­nity have shown to the peo­ple of Ukraine.

As of Sat­ur­day night, 8 HGV lor­ries have been sent to the Ukraine full with dona­tions from all across Kent. We are for­tu­nate that our lor­ries are cur­rently get­ting directly into the Ukraine to those that need it more. Many aid vehi­cles are only allowed as far as Poland/​the boarders.

On behalf of all the team at Bigjigs/​Kent Help for Ukraine, please pass on our sin­cere thanks to your pupils, par­ents, staff and wider com­mu­nity for their tremen­dous effort in pro­vid­ing aid for those fam­i­lies in Ukraine. We look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to sup­port this project in the weeks ahead.

Kent Cup Final report — 28/​01/​2022

On Fri­day night the U16 boys’ foot­ball team com­peted in the final of the Kent Cup against Hurst­mere School at the Gal­lagher Sta­dium in Maid­stone. The boys per­formed bril­liantly against a very strong Hurst­mere side who had won the com­pe­ti­tion in each of the last four years.
After some excel­lent early goals from Gar­rett and Cres­dee the boys unfor­tu­nately ended up los­ing 42. Despite this the boys played with fan­tas­tic spirit and sports­man­ship and were a credit to their school and their fam­i­lies. Thank you for all those that came to watch and have con­tin­ued to sup­port the boys through­out the competition.
We would also like to thank Coun­cil­lor Linda Wright and the mem­bers of West­gate and Birch­ing­ton Golf Club for their gen­er­ous dona­tions in help­ing fund the boys’ new kit. One final thank you goes to Ambi­tion Sport who were instru­men­tal in help­ing get the kit ready in time for the final.
