World Voice

Kingsmeadow cluster schools recently came together at our school for a singing afternoon.

It was called ‘World Voice’ as two vocal leaders, one from Columbia and the other from Kenya, led workshops in schools which culminated in this final singing afternoon.
The participating schools were Lobley Hill, Caedmon, Dunston Hill, Cedars Academy and Kingsmeadow.  Each school performed their song that they had learnt with their vocal leader as well as singing songs all together.
All students enjoyed learning songs from different countries and different cultures.
This event was organised between Gateshead Music Service, British Council and The Sage.

Learning for Life – Day 2

Our second Learning for Life (L4L) day of the academic year took place earlier this week, with students taking part in a wide range of activities to promote Careers Information Advice and Guidance, Citizenship and Health Education.

Sessions were delivered by a range of external speakers and Kingsmeadow staff and covered topics such as mental health, drug and alcohol awareness and the nature of democracy to name but a few.

Our year 7 students also took part in a full day of session based on Remembrance Day, with the students learning about the significance of the cross, the poppy and the cenotaph and also learning about war veterans in the community and being given the opportunity to write their own war poetry.

Thank you to everyone who supported the day and helped to make it such a success.

The next Learning for Life day will take place on Thursday 25th January.
