The boys entered the Junior Hall this morning to Queen’s ‘We are the champions’, as Nottingham High Junior School are officially the U11 Nottingham City Football Champions 2012.
Our U11 squad consisting of Harvey, Adam, Will, Theo, Luke, Ralph, Daniel, Will and Herbie were magnificent, beating Whitemoor 2-1 in a thrilling final on Wednesday evening at Nottingham Forest’s training ground.
Well done boys and of course Mr Simpson.
Good luck for this afternoon’s match in the Nottingham County’s Quarter Final match-weather permitting!
Following on from our impressive performance at the IAPS National Finals, NHJS are proud to announce that we have three England chess players in our ranks. Taylor, Hari and John all qualified for the squad last weekend in Liverpool.
Donald, James, Sahrin and Karam are all also eligible to play at least two games for the England squad.
Gurvir and Sacheth in Year 6 have made it through to the final selection process for the County U11 Representative team 2012. We are all keeping our fingers crossed that you make it through to the final 13 boys. Good Luck!
Mr Harrison (teacher i/c Senior swimming) organised a ‘Swimathon’ event at NHS on Sunday 30th April, as part of the national fundraising event for Marie Curie Cancer and Sport Relief.
Three Year 6 boys took part – Matthew and Ralph swimming 5km and Luke swimming 2.5km.
Matthew 5km 01:43:09
