Y8 Bulletin 08.12.23


We have had a successful week in Year 8. 8FAD should be commended for their work helping out on reception the last couple of weeks. From all reports, they have been a great help to the admin team and their efforts have been much appreciated. Last week the Year 8/9 Basketball Team competed in a tournament and were able to finish runners up. The students displayed great sportsmanship and effort throughout the event. It was excellent to see so many Year 8s represented. A big congratulations to Olivia D, Keira E, Karis C, Lily F, Freda L and Marwah B. The hard work didn’t stop there for our Basketballers as a day after their tournament they faced a play off against Christ’s. Unfortunately the U14 team lost their league match v Christ’s, with a final score of 12-24. They were a tough opposition and the team did well to keep scoring baskets as Christ’s had a very strong defence. Well done to everyone who played. Today a number of students have spent the day at St. Augustine’s Church where they are busy rehearsing for the Carol Concert taking place later tonight. We hope everyone has a lovely evening at this event. Congratulations to Evelyn B in 8EMU who has gained a Merit in her Grade 4 Piano exam! Next week we will be having our Year 8 Celebration Awards. This is a great chance for the Year 8s to be celebrated with awards based on our three core values (enjoy, achieve, empower). It is always a great event as so many of the students are truly happy for their peers’ success. As we are building towards the Celebration Assemblies, it is always worthwhile to take a look at the current form leaders of epraise points. A big congratulations is in order for first placed 8EMU, followed by 8EFR. It is important to note, 8SGZ were able to achieve the most epraise points last week, could an unlikely comeback be on the cards? We will find out at the Awards Assembly next week! On Thursday 14 December, we have an extremely festive day for Year 8 with the Christmas lunch and the opportunity to wear a Christmas jumper over their uniform in place of the usual school jumper. Students and their families are kindly requested to make a donation either via ParentPay or our JustGiving page, with all proceeds going to Save the Children. Please note that if your child does not wish to partake in the Christmas lunch on this day, they should purchase food at break instead.
