Wow what an amazing tutor group 7EH are. They have all shown an act of kindness to a fellow tutee.

Polly Utley Scott designed and made a fabulous card and the whole tutor group signed it and put a kind message in it for a fellow student who was feeling sad and nervous about being new at Cotham School. We are so proud to have 7EH in Sigma.

Sigma House September update

It was a pleasure to welcome the new Sigma year 7 to our first House assembly on Thursday.  We will be staying with our House Charity The Rainbow Centre for Children this year. They are a charity that support children and families through bereavement. Our first fund raising event will be next Friday 5th October. Sigma will be holding their famous cake sale. It will be at break time in the Hub, all cakes are 50p. Please remember to bring in your money to support our Charity.

We are also having our first Tutor Challenge. Each tutor group will be given a large tube of smarties, they can share the sweets then fill the tube with loose change. The tutor group who collect the most money will win a prize. All money raised will go to The Rainbow Centre for Children.

Our house role in school is the environment. We have been working hard to promote recycling around the school and to stop single use plastic bottles. We launched our own Sigma House reusable drink bottle last year, which are given as prizes and can also be bought on Wise Pay for £2.50 money from the sale will go to our Charity. Last year we supported Meat Free Monday and are keen to hold another Meat Free Monday this term. We have been invited to enter The Green Plan it Challenge with the RHS. this is a student led project over ten weeks.  We have a team of six students who are working with a mentor to design a Well being Sensory garden. They are called The Bee Friendly Gardeners - BFG. The gardeners are Eva Liberman, Bram Bourbon, Oscar DeHavilland, Misha Evans, Anna Alvarez Stodulkova and Prerana Nerlige prashanth. We wish them lots of luck with their project.

In our assembly we spoke about Cotham manners. The Prefects spoke about what Cotham manners mean to them and how they play an important part of school life and need to be used daily.

The Sigma Team


The Green Plan it Challenge

As part of our role within school and the environment, Sigma have been invited to take part in The Green Plan it Challenge with the RHS. This is a student led project, which allows them to explore community needs, environmental issues and to grow their understanding of how plants play such valuable roles in our lives. Students are matched with an industry mentor to design a green space in their school over a 10 week period. The group will then present their projects to a team of horticultural professionals at a celebration event at the end of November. A team of six students from across year 8 and year 9, Bram Bourbon, Oscar de Havilland, Prerana Nerlige Prashanth, Eva Liberman, Misha Evans and Anna Alvarez Stodulkova attended the launch day on Thursday 13 September at The Bristol Botanical Gardens. They had a tour of the gardens and met their mentor. They all came back inspired by what they had seen and learnt from the day and are now working together to plan their design.
