On Tuesday 15th November, nine year 5 and 6 children took part in a football tournament at The Wellington Academy in Ludgershall. The children participated brilliantly, representing King's Gate superbly and performed well throughout the tournament ⚽️As well as finishing a credible 3rd, the children were also awarded 1st place for their sportsmanship, for which they should be so proud!
Thoroughly deserved; WELL DONE to you all!
In May, the school community was rocked by the devastating news that one of our original parents had sadly passed away from Cancer leaving 2 totally awesome children and family. In September, another of our amazing King's Gate mum's started her battle against Cancer.
As a result of this news, and wanting to do something to raise money for all those battling Cancer and in memory of Sophie, the King's Gate staff entered the Great South Run and the Bournemouth 10k both in October 2022 to raise money for Cancer Research.
We also invited all of our children to join together as part of Team KGPS to run the King's Gate Colour Run on Friday 4th November to celebrate life and its many different colours.
So far, as a school community, we have raised £8,225 for Cancer Research.
21 of us completed the Bournemouth 10k on Sunday 9th October.
