Gamma has had a great start to this new 2019 with lots of schemes and initiatives to welcome students back. Our House assembly concentrated on the important of new beginnings and how students should take advantage of a new term to set goals and be the best versions of themselves. Miss Madge is setting her new Years resolution to read more books, she was particularly encouraged by Gamma House who have 48 students who have read over 50 books! As our focus is teaching and learning, Gamma house wants to encourage its students and the school to increase their literacy skills. Gamma is, therefore, setting a challenge to get students to read as many books from the library as possible with the Top 5 readers in the year gaining a £10.00 Waterstones voucher in our next assembly.
Our assembly also celebrated the incredible efforts of 2 Gamma students - Sophie Cocking and Nevina Shawe in Year 8 students who saved a lady's life a few weeks ago by alerting parents to a woman who had collapsed in the street. We are incredibly proud of the two girls bravery. They were even interviewed on BBC Radio Bristol. The interview with Sophie and Nevina starts at about 22 minutes into the programme.
Our Gamma House Champion this month was Khalid Farah in Year 7 who is consistently polite, friendly and extremely charming to all those he encounters. He wins a trophy, certificate and free lunch. Well done for all your hard work Khalid!
Gamma has also been getting in a loving mood by setting up a Valentine's day raffle in the last week where prizes have included- 5 chocolate roses, boxes of chocoloate, a giant teddy bear and a dinner for two in the canteen. Students have been very charitable and given lots of money to Above and Beyond with the hopes of winning a prize. Winners will be announced at the end of the week.
Thank you to all students who have been showing incredible Cotham manners and therefore won a golden ticket to support Omega's drive in the school community. We look forward to more celebrations this next term.
