June 2009 Newsletter
Newsletter Trophy Haul for NK Football! Our teams have completed a stunning football season this year with victories in the Lincolnshire Schools’ County Cup; Lincoln & District School Cup and Lincolnshire Schools’ County Cup League. NK Wins the County Directors Challenge Our amazing Drama students have emerged victorious from a strong field of competitors at a recent countywide competition that showcases the very best directing talent. The standard was awe-inspiring at this fantastic evening celebrating young people’s drama across Lincolnshire. Esteemed judges for the evening, Liz McFarlane and Lisa Gocha, praised the work as “reaching undergraduate or professional standard”. The winners were from NK’s A level group, with a 4-woman adaptation of Franca Rame's monologue A Woman Alone, which was a fine example of the commitment, flair and ability that performing arts at NK demands.

Such Examinations demand a high level of individual responsibility and maturity but the chances of success are increased dramatically when there is a strong partnership between school, student and parent. The outstanding achievements of our footballers and drama students highlighted opposite, have been built on a very strong team approach with commitment, determination, willingness to learn, mutual respect and leadership, just some of the qualities shown by the students involved. I want such qualities, allied to good manners, positive behaviour and a burning ambition to succeed to be the essential components of each and every NK student. NK is a large, complex organisation but my rather simple philosophy is that all members of our school community MUST feel valued, respected and ready to play their part in ensuring great future success for the school. It is an exciting time with curriculum developments, building projects and increased opportunities for parental involvement, in place or on the horizon. I will keep you fully informed as things change and develop but reiterate the importance of working as a team to maximise the chances of success for your son/daughter at NK.
