As part of the Creative Arts Evening, the lower sixth Drama
Students performed extracts from Arthur Miller’s play ‘The Crucible’, based on
the Salem witch trials.
The groups performed extracts of the most poignant parts of the
play and were dressed in full puritan costume to give it an authentic feel.
They performed to family and friends and this has given them the experience of
performing to an audience outside of class ready for the Performance exam next
Christ the King Sixth Forms were delighted to recently host a
‘Diversity in STEM’ event which was organised by ‘Greeate Careers’ and
which was attended by students from across all three sites studying Physics and
Cephas Williams and Deborah Obaseki of
‘Greeate Careers’ led a panel discussion which included Najwa Jawahar a Senior
Structural Engineer at WSP, Anirban Basak a Principal Electrical Engineer at
Aecom, Sara Kassam, Head of Sustainability for CIBSE and Diego Padilla Philipps
an Associate at WSP.
After the panel discussion the students were divided into smaller
groups for speed mentoring with our illustrious guests. The students learnt a
great deal form the event and many said that this event had given them the
confidence to pursue a career in engineering.
Thanks to ‘Greeate Careers’ and all our guest speakers from the
Physics and Engineering students at CTK!
On the Thursday 14th June, Christ the King
students from Emmanuel, Aquinas and St Mary’s, attended a Science conference at
St Mary’s site. This cross-site event comprised talks from several speakers
from Kent University, Imperial College, Welcome Trust Sanger Institute and
London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
The presenters inspired the students to pursue a career in
Science, sharing their academic and career path and their future professional
prospects. The students felt that knowing other people’s path to success and
learning about their experiences enlightened them about their own choices and
means to achieve their goals.
