KSA Does VE Day!
Here is an overview of how KSA celebrated VE Day
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.

For the students who were in school, Team Alpha went to great lengths to facilitate a day that truly embraced what VE Day was all about. All wearing Red, White and Blue students were treated to a war time afternoon tea, learnt and played 1940’s children’s games, created some art work, listened to authentic records from the era, had a sing along, took part in a whole school online assembly amongst so much more alongside vigorous flag waving. Have a look at the photos, they are really special and something everyone involved will remember.
