Kennedy Club is an activity run by the Sixth Form at St George's College on a Thursday evening throughout the school year. Every week, buses are sent out from school to collect special guests, all of whom have some sort of disability. The guests are brought back to the Sixth Form common room for the evening.
Kennedy Club has been running since the 1960s and ever since then we've been helping the local community. The evening consists of playing games with the guests, speaking with them or even making loom bands! So far, I have made five of those loom bands!
At the end of the night, there is a little sing-along and we all join forces to sing the hymn 'Rise and shine'. Kennedy Club is a really nice way to give back to the community and reinforce the Georgian ethos of Politesse and Douceur. It feels good to sacrifice personal time to give others who may spend most of the week alone the opportunity to enjoy an evening with the Sixth Formers for company.
I think that anyone who is a part of the Sixth Form and is involved in Kennedy Club would agree how enjoyable the evenings are and we would all encourage the younger years to participate once they've reached the Sixth Form! In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Kennedy Club shows how we give back to the community all year around and show love and compassion to all.
