Life at ARK Kings
Here at ARK Kings Academy we believe in helping students to develop life skills, as well as providing an excellent education.
Towards the end of each term we have an Enrichment day for our students which consists of a variety of interesting activities tailored to year groups and development of skills we feel will most benefit our students.
Enrichment Day 1 was held in December 2012 and our activities included some Christmas themes; such as providing the materials for students to make their own christmas stocking designs, stained glass christmas tree biscuits, along with some motivational talks and puzzles to solve in science.
Some of the results of these activities are shown in the following document entitled, Enrichment Day 1.
Enrichment Day 2 took place in March 2013, on this occasion we decided to provide some outdoor activities and offer students an opportunity to try out completely new skills. So we organised for a climbing wall to be set up in the school grounds, for a mountain biking range with small jumps and obstacles to be laid out by the school fields. We also had outdoor survival experts come to school to teach the students to spark fires and erect tents simply and effectively. For the indoor pursuits we had some puzzles laid out, fencing training, archery using the long bow and a selection of exotic fruits and insects for the students to sample and identify.
Needless to say all students and staff enjoyed all the activities immensely. Here are some pictures of the events which took place for Enrichment Day 2.
