December 17th, 2014 Comments off

With 5 teams entered and little pre-tournament practice, 8 girls travelled to the Clere School to play in the 5-a-side indoor tournament.

Results were as follows:
0-0 vs John Hanson
2-0 vs Clere
2-1 vs Testbourne
2-0 vs Test Valley

The girls took it in turns to be Goalkeeper for the games. Shannon Durrans played an excellent game as defender and Abi Clark, Lauran Clark, Lucy Ladd and Amelia Kalwajtys attacked well and scored some outstanding goals.Amelia also saved a penalty in the final game to prevent a nervous last few minutes.
An extra special well done to Chloe Wilfort who played on her birthday! The girls will now represent the district in the next round.
Team: Abi Clark, Lauren Clark, Elyn Hethershaw, Lucy Ladd, Shannon Durrans, Amelia Kalwajtys, Chloe Wilfort & Jessami Phipps

Naples Day Three

December 15th, 2014 Comments off

IMG_0447Today we woke up at 7 o’clock in time for breakfast at half seven. We then went onto the coach which took us to the amphitheatre in Napoli, and it was amazing! We then went inside and it was full of empty rooms where they would have kept the animals and possibly some slaves and prisoners. There were many walls separating each room which we hid behind so that we could jump out and scare the rest of the students. We learnt about where in the arena people would sit to spectate the fights (which were between men and the animals which were kept below ground) based on social class. All of this information was given to us by a guide. Read more…

Naples Day Two

December 12th, 2014 Comments off

11After a nights sleep in the hotel, Klein Wien, we were ready to set off on our journey to the volcanic Island of Capri. The early start meant we were all slow to get off, we thought that we were going to miss our train! But with our pace we made it to the train station on time. After Ms Calder bought all 27 tickets for us, we caught the train and took a quick journey to Sorrento, where we took a short walk down to the port.

To begin with we all weren’t sure which ferry was ours but eventually after a wait, our one finally turned up and we boarded for a 30 minute cruise to the island – unfortunately the outside of the ferry was restricted but we still had some quality banter together on the journey. Read more…

Bay of Naples Trip – Day One

December 11th, 2014 Comments off

1After breakfast, we ventured on a journey up the volcano Mt Vesuvius! The weather was cold, but the views, however were breathtaking! We were able to look over the near towns, Sorrento and Naples. It took us half an hour to walk up the mountain and around the crater on top, which was very deep. It wasn’t active, but there was sulphur gas escaping along the side of the volcano. Along the pathway, there were many cool however scary drops, that weren’t fun to look down. Even though the weather wasn’t brilliant, and all of our legs ached after the hike, I think all of us enjoyed our time conquering mount Vesuvius.

We had a pizza and then someone started singing – he was really good. After our pizza we travelled to the ancient city of Pompeii, it was very interesting but also quite sad about how the bodies still had there facial expression from when they died. We walked around for a bit before finding house ruins …

Anti-Bullying Parents Survey

December 8th, 2014 Comments off

You may already be aware of the work the school undertook during anti bullying week earlier this term. The students all had the opportunity to respond to an online survey and worked during tutor time on a shared definition of what bullying is. The work the students carried out will feed into the review of our policy and I would like to invite you to be included in this review. You will find below a link to our parents survey on bullying and I would welcome your responses to enable us to ensure that the policy review addresses the views and concerns of our whole school community.

The survey can be found here.
