Are you are interested in learning how to use the lighting setup in the Assembly Hall, and additionally perhaps have a particular interest in drama or music?

One of our established "Lighting Technicians" who is in S6 is looking to cascade knowledge to a small number of people in younger year groups for sustainability.

A great opportunity to volunteer and learn new skills at the same time!

If you are interested send an email to lighting@ka-net.org.uk indicating what makes you a suitable candidate for the role.

There seems to be some confusion regarding Leavers Dance Payments. Therefore in order to try and avoid any issues we have decided to extend the deadline for the amount to be paid in full : the full payment of £72.00 should be paid by Wednesday 31 October. If you are unsure of what you have paid so far please see Miss McBride or Miss Maguire in the office. As previously stated, if you haven't paid in full by the above date we will assume it is because you do not wish to attend Leavers unless we have been told otherwise.
