  • Feel Good Friday-KSA Happiness Wall

    Published 22/06/20

    Last week we started ‘Feel Good Friday’ at KSA. As part of this event we will be creating a ‘Happiness Wall’! Each week will have a different focus for example last week focused on staff recognising students work/effort/achievement throughout lock down so far. In future it might consist of photos recreating a piece of art or book cover or movie etc /virtual sing along / feel good playlists / as well as some more outstanding pieces of work etc, etc,  

    This aims to create a feel good factor and community feeling, which can only make us smile, stop and appreciate good things that are happening.

    Friday 15th May - VE Day Celebrations

    Although as a country we did not celebrate VE Day the way we had perhaps intended, with full blown street parties, social gatherings and parades; regardless there was an overwhelming feeling of pulling together and recognising the sacrifices made by the war time generation. Vera Lynne’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ certainly resonates with us today, which made it even more poignant.

    At KSA we too wanted to we fully embraced VE Day and clearly the staff were ‘In the Mood’ to entertain you all. It may not come close to the Red Arrows fly by, or the Spitfire’s flying past the White Cliffs of Dover or as stirring as listening to Winston Churchill’s, but it certainly made us smile. Please enjoy this montage…

    Please see the effort members of our KSA Community went to when dancing to ‘In the Mood’ for VE Day.
