Omega House Winter Term

This term Omega house has had several awards and many causes of celebration. Students have continued to act and behave in an inspiring way, and a true reflection of what we would expect from Cotham students.

Doughnut challenge

Students were challenged to eat a doughnut without using their hands as fast as they could, over two days we had three winners, and managed to raise over £42 for our house charity ‘Jessie May’.

Penny pick-up

Run each term, students were encouraged to put any coins they found on the floor in charity pots and the tutor group who raised the most for ‘Jessie May’ won pizza.

Last terms winners 7JBR – raised over £100

This terms winner will be announced soon.

Christmas Tree

This year we decided to have individual house Christmas trees that were decorated by students from each house. The omega students dusted off their origami skills to produce an eclectic but no less lovely tree.

Jessie May

Our house charity this year is the Jessie May foundation that helps terminally ill children in and around Bristol. They provide skilled nurses and carers to go into family homes and help out, providing not only some entertainment and excitement for the children but also some much needed rest for the families and parents of the children.

This term we were very proud to host two representatives in our house assembly and present them with £323 from our penny pick up challenge and our Donut eating competition.

This is not even including the money we have raised from non-school uniform days.

There will be much more to come.

Santa Dash

On a crazier note a whole school competition pitted teacher against teacher and student against student in a mad Santa themed sprint around the school grounds. Although weary, wet and muddy we had three triumphant teachers:

  1. Thomas Slane
  2. George Cawse
  3. Kelly McDonagh

And three exceptional students:

  1. Nyheam Kefentse
  2. Rahel Jafar
  3. Alex Durrani

Thank you all for a brilliant term, have a well earned break and I will see you all in January.

Best Wishes
