Achievement Assembly @ NHJS-Friday 21st September

I always look forward to Friday’s achievement assembly, as the range of activities and awards which are mentioned on a weekly basis, never ceases to amaze me. This week was no exception!


Vignesh and Nihit seem to be on a roll at the minute! Following on from last week’s assembly, they collected their 12×12 division certificates-congratulations


Mr Purveur, our drama coach passed on Rohan’s LAMDA certificate, which states that Rohan has achieved his Grade 1 ‘Performing Solo’ with merit.


The following Year 6 boys are now the proud owners of LIBRARIAN badges. I’m certain that Mrs Martin is looking forward to working with you in the library over the course of the year.

Well done to Alex, Harry, Rishi, Colin, Matthew, Nihit and Achintya.

Perhaps we should have asked you to line up in alphabetical order?

Kick Boxing:

Joe certainly had me on my toes this morning in presenting his latest belt, which is two grades off the highest award. I’m sure with continued hard work Joe will achieve this coveted award!


This week saw our first competitive fixtures in Year 6. On Monday we had a convincing win against Beeston Fields (won 13-0), with both Sebby and George scoring hat-tricks. However, our fortunes changed on Wednesday during the inaugural ISFA U11 7 a-side Football Competition at Repton.

Mr Simpson gave a mixed report as we got through to the Plate semi-final, but unfortunately we were beaten 4-3 on penalties! Our results for the Competition are as follows:

Played 5, W1, D1, L3.

Student of the Week:

Goes to Toby, who during a Year 6 Science investigation took the initiative to help clean up the water on the floor spilled by another group with a cloth and continued doing so until it was all mopped up.

Great stuff Toby. We’ll keep you on standby in the staffroom!

And finally…

Mr Caldwell spoke to the boys about a fantastic competition based on next Wednesday’s European Day of Languages. For more information, please click the following link:
