Congratulations to Jai S on achieving his Grade 1 violin.
On the 1st of November, Nottingham High Infant and Junior School competed in a swimming gala against the Nottingham Girls High Junior School. The races and scores were very close. It was a tense and exciting event with medley relays, individual races and much, much more.
The final scores were:
NGHS B team 4th with 32 points
NHIJS B team 3rd with 41 points
NGHS A team 2nd with 59
NHIJS A team 1st! With 78 points.
Well done to everyone who competed-it was a great gala!

Congratulations to our U11 footballers who won four of their 5 matches to qualify for the finals night. This will be played on 29th November at the Harvey Haddon Sports Centre. Matches will start at 4pm.
The A team lost 10 tries to 1
The B team lost 10 tries to 3
The C team lost 6 tries to 3
The C team performed well, in what was for many, their first ever competitive rugby match. The half time score was 4 tries to 0. The second half performance proved much more successful. Captain Kris S scored two tries and Namit B scored one to make the final score 6-3. Tackler of the day was Shuban Y.
U10s vs The Elms
Our U10 a team lost 6 tries to 2. The match was a lot closer than the score line suggests. We conceded 4 tries in the first 5 minutes (must have been down to jetlag, following the long journey!), but after that, the match was incredibly even. Try scorers were Joshua M & George E. Excellent performances from all of the team, but man of the match was George E for his try and brilliant tackling.
Our B team won a cracking match 8 tries to 7. Try scorers were Alex B (3), Isaac W (1), William W (2), & Ben H (2).
Congratulations to Ayaan P who has stood out all week for setting a shining example to his classmates. He always listens carefully and follows instructions straight away, pays close attention to what is happening, where should be and what he should be doing. He is consistently the first one sat quietly and ready on the carpet or standing in line order and it is lovely to see him with a smile on his face and showing such a positive attitude!
Congratulations to Nathan S-P for being an all-round good egg! He swam for the school for the first time on Tuesday (he was nervous about this but did it very well). He also then wrote a short report about the gala afterwards.
