"From everybody in Gamma, we would like to say thank you for such an enjoyable final term of 2018. Students and Staff across Cotham have been in an extremely festive mood in these past few weeks and this is due in part to the events run by Omega, Delta, Sigma and Gamma. Whether this be a Christmas raffle, a Santa dash, a celebratory assembly or a candy cane gram, we have all come together to fund raise for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Gamma students have contributed a great amount of non-perishable items and food to Omega's Christmas donation scheme which has led to-
- 100 cans (20 soup, 29 beans, 15 baked beans, many others too)
- 19 packs of pasta, rice, daal, lentils, noodles.
- 30 Bottles of shower gel/shampoo/conditioner
- 154 pads & tampons
- 25 nappies
- 16 Tubes toothpaste & toothbrushes
- Cereal, Pasta sauce, deodorants, soaps, biscuits, cakes, blankets, razors and much more!
This is being donated to The Julian Trust, a homeless shelter in St Pauls- near to St Pauls Nursery & Cabot Primary School. Somewhere Mr Nunn feels a lot of our students will resonate with.
Gamma have been doing our annual Candy cane delivery this week which is where students have been sending lovely messages to each other which are then delivered by Santa's helpers (our lovely prefects!). We are still totaling up the profit, but it looks to be well over £50 which is fantastic. Thank you to everyone who helped.
All around school Gamma students have been showing brilliant Cotham manners and appreciation of each other in this season of goodwill. This was shown none more than by this months Gamma House Champion which is Khalid Farah in 7RA. Khalid is the most polite, friendly and downright charming member of Gamma house and goes above and beyond to greet staff and older students with compassion and care. He is a star. He will receive £3.00 on his lanyard, a trophy and a certificate.
Finally, the second issue of our awesome Cotham newspaper came out in the last couple of weeks and is being read across the school! The issue took a long time to make but we wanted it to showcase the best student work that our school has to offer. As Gamma's focus is teaching and learning, we included articles on 'How to revise,' 'Exam stress management,' and exemplar work from the creative arts department. We hope to have an even bigger and better third issue so keep an eye out around school or in future weekly mailing.
From Miss Madge and everyone at Gamma, we wish you a happy and restful holiday. We look forward to a brilliant 2019!"
