Achievement Assembly-Friday 14th September 2012

After our first full week back at school, our boys have been extremely busy indeed. Our achievement assembly this morning celebrated success both inside and outside of the classroom. So without further ado, here are this week’s achievers:


Congratulations go to our ‘new boys’ in Year 6 who have already earned their 12×12 multiplication certificates-well done Vignesh and Nihit. I have also included the boys who achieved their second Golden Mathletics Certificate over the summer holidays, which in itself is a remarkable achievement.


Mrs Kawalec has received the ABRSM examination results taken in the summer term and I was delighted to present certificates to the following boys:

Grade 1 Violin



Grade 1 Flute

Joshua (merit)

Grade 1 Piano



Aditya (merit)

Grade 2 Piano



Grade 2 Oboe

Dan (merit)


Ben, John and Eduardo were part of the U11 T20 Cup Final on Sunday 9th September. Their team (Radcliffe on Trent) won the final. It was a particular achievement for our boys as they were playing up an age group (they are really U10’s). A special mention should go to John, who opened the batting, didn’t get out and scored lots of runs. Ben and John brought in their medals to School and not to be left out, Eduardo is pictured holding the coveted paperclip medallion!

Rohan in Year 4 was presented with a Bronze Award form Nottinghamshire Cricket Club.

It seems as we have an array of potential players should our England T20 Squad need any replacements!


Watch out Any Murray! Rohan brought his trophy for winning the Nottinghamshire LTA U8 Mixed Singles Competition into assembly today-thankfully I didn’t drop it during the presentation!


As mentioned in last week’s blog, the results of our unofficial spelling/incorrect signage competition were announced today. In a very strong field with entries from Mr Jones…

And Dan…

Having spotted the following mistake, Harry was presented with the very special prize of a pocket sized dictionary that will hopefully stand him in good stead for the future-well done Harry!

Our Student of the Week  was Matthew for having a ‘can do’ attitude in history.

I also announced that we would be issuing this term’s extra curricular brochure today to have a look at over the weekend. Your son’s Form Teacher will collate the boys’ choices during registration on Monday morning to ensure that everybody has access to the programme and to try to ensure that every boy signs up for at least one activity. To help you select a suitable club from our extensive range of activities, please see the overview below:

Young Nottinghamian  

Over the course of the academic year, the boys will have the opportunity to write an article of their choice based on a school event/activity which will be published in our yearly magazine for posterity!

And finally… those of you who are eagle-eyed will have spotted a rather amusing sign in one or two of the boys’ photographs. It was taken during our visit to Northumbria over the summer (on the B1340 to Beadnell) and, as an MC Hammer fan, it now has pride of place as my screen saver!
