Achievement Assembly on Friday 15th March
It is Red Nose day so we had a dominantly red assembly.
Bad weather this week has again taken its toll on our sports’ fixtures. Rugby matches on Monday were cancelled and the Cross Country at Leeds on Tuesday was hit by the bad weather.
Coincidentally, despite the bad weather, we then had one boy who played ice hockey at the weekend and brought in an hockey shirt. Oscar had obtained the shirt for playing in the National Ice Hockey Jamboree.
Robert showed us his medals for Hockey which he was given by his hockey club for winning the tournament. Amun was in the club’s B team who finished in a creditable 4th place.
Under 10s Football
It was a great performance from the U10s footballers this week in the tournament at the Forest Academy ground. Instead of an indoor tournament it was changed to be outdoors, so in the very cold (and snowy) weather they did really well! They won 4, drew 1, lost 1, to finish 2nd out of 7 teams involved and are through to the semi-finals of the Nottinghamshire Schools’ FA tournament on Wednesday 27th March. Good luck for the Finals.
Goals from Hari Bhatia (2), Sammy King (2) and Zehn Rana.
Club Football Award:
Harry Tyler Smith played for his football team, Ruddington Colts U9s, and they were winter champions
Swimming Club Award:

Chess was not hit by the adverse weather conditions so we were able to continue the next rounds of matches.
