The Year 10 boys won their semi final against Seven Kings; improving as the competition progressed and really hitting their stride by the semi finals. The final was another close game against Isaac Newton, going through normal time and extra time without a winner - meaning Golden Goal was the only option. The winning goal was scored by Mantas Krilavicius 10E, with a spectacular counter attack!
After only a couple of training sessions our Year 9 & 10 girls recently participated in a Handball tournament at Isaac Newton, to determine who would represent Redbridge in the London Youth Games. The girls (Sibha Nadeem; Anastasia Fabian; Radusa Ravathasan; Nowshin Hussain; Denise EviParker; Mariah Onelum; Mia Olagbaju; Mia Blainey & Michelle Ndlovu) played 3 games in the group stage, drawing with Isaac Newton A; winning against Isaac Newton B and losing to Mayfield.
They then went forward to play their first semi-final against Isaac Newton 1, and after drawing to them in the group stage were keen to come away with a win. The girls battled to the end, won the game and earned their place in the final against Mayfield where, despite a valiant effort by our girls and both teams displaying some great handball, Mayfield came out on top.
Well done to all the girls who managed to earn Silver medals after only a couple of training sessions in what was for most of them a brand new sport!
Year 10 Football We have had a really good season so far, playing a variety of league and cup games.
We are currently unbeaten in the Redbridge Cup and through to the quarter finals! Our new find, keeper William Owoko 10U is amazing and has been voted man of the match 3 different occassions by his team mates!
Mantas Krilavicius is currently our top goal scorer with 8 goals, having scored a hat trick in one of our league matches!
The season re-starts in February and we are hoping to continue our successful run. Well done!
Netball Year 7 Over 30 girls have been training since the start of the term and have made great progress in their skill and performance.
The Year 7 team has played 3 Redbridge league matches; winning against Forest Academy and narrowly losing to Chadwell and Palmer Academies. There are many more matches in the Redbridge League and Essex cup and we look forward to reporting on continued success next term.
U14 The U14s have been entered into the the Essex Cup this year and after a defeat in the first round, experienced victory over City Academy in the Essex Plate. The girls are playing well and enjoying their success.
Year 9 The Year 9 team had a difficult season last year; however the hard work and commitment to training is now starting to pay off. With victories against Canon Palmer and Forest Academy, there are surely more to come. Well done!
Year 10 The Year 10 Netball team played their first fixture of the year against Woodbridge; narrowly losing by 2 points in the last quarter. The girls recently played their second game at home to Valentines and came away with a convincing 28 – 6 victory! A great team performance - well done girls!
Every house round saw some great dishes and it was very difficult deciding on the winners.
The final was held on 18th November with competition as fierce as ever; however the overall winners were Bhayva Balia 7I and Mr Cohen for Omega who produced Caraway and Sesame Crackers with Chicken Liver Pate, followed by Beef Wellington with Mashed Potato and Vegetables.
The final result:
1st Omega 2nd Kappa 3rd Sigma 4th Alpha A huge well done and thank you to all of the teams and in particular to Mrs Douglas who, as always, organised a spectacular competition!
Maths Relay This tense and tricky competition always tests the students and teachers who compete - and this year was no exception!
After rounds of puzzles, Sudokus, mazes and word searches, it all hinged on the Rubik’s cube. Omega made a very late run from 3rd place and managed to complete the Rubik’s cube in an amazing time to snatch the lead and therefore the victory!
Kappa and Sigma followed closely behind, finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively, with Alpha coming in 4th.
It was a very tight, nail-biting competition which was made even more tense by the fantastic supporters!
Well done to all competitors and to Mr Bissett for organising such a great event!
Attendance Again the race for the best house attendance is very close this year.
In joint 1st place at the moment with 94.8% are Kappa and Omega; 3rd place is Alpha with 94.4% and Sigma in 4th with 94.3%.
Attendance figures have been taken from the start of the year to 24th November, so there is still lots of time to improve!
Commendations Competition for commendations is always fierce and this year is no different. Again commendations have been taken from the start of the year to the 24th November.
In 1st place with 3138 points - Alpha; 2nd with 2240 points - Kappa; 3rd - Sigma with 1969 points and in 4th - Omega with 1840 points.
Alpha has got off to a great start; however the lead can shrink fast so keep earning commendations from your teachers!
