DKA Appreciations!

Integrity, Diligence, Civility... w/c 12th October 2015


At Dixons Kings, we live by our core values. Integrity is always doing the right thing and keeping true to your moral principles. Diligence is the necessity of giving attention to detail in order to avoid error and overcome obstacles. Finally, Civility is about showing everyone consideration and respect. Our appreciations newsletter celebrates the members of our academy family who exhibit these values and climb the mountain to success. We also champion the family members who, during their climb, have shown themselves to be unique, ambitious and creative.

Family Members of the week - 12th October:

Year 7

Muhammed Yusuf Ali – 7.6 - Has demonstrated civility every day whilst participating in family dining. He always ensures that everyone else has food before him. He makes sure the tutor gets a seat so she can sit down with the group and that there is a plate of food ready. He collects the dessert most of the time, even if it isn’t his role and makes sure that the table is tidy before anyone leaves. He is extremely thoughtful and is an excellent example of how year 7 students should participate in family dining.

Alysha Sultan – 7.3 - Always being helpful and showing civility.

Year 8

Awais Aslam - 8Ox3 - Displaying civility and support to a member of staff who needed help without even being asked

The Climb... Events @ DKA

National Poetry Day!

On Thursday 8th October, students and staff at DKA celebrated National Poetry Day in style! The theme for this year was 'Light'. Some students brought in their favourite poems to share and some even wrote their own poems. A competition was help by the school library to write a poem about science or light (or both!) - we will announce the winner soon and publish their poem here!

Two diligent and brave students read out poems during morning line up and this almost moved some members of staff to tears; such is the power of poetry!

Mr Nixon, the school librarian, also gave a special performance of a number of poems during year 7 lunch time. Part of the performance is below!

Photographs of the wonderful day are below!

Two Claps on Three!

To show our appreciation, we give our family members 'two claps on three'. Here are year 7 demonstrating it!


Family Dining

We are very proud that our year 7 students dine together every day. Family dining gives students a chance to demonstrate integrity, diligence and civility while eating together with their tutors. They serve each other; clean up together and get a chance to talk about their journey up the mountain of success!
