Gamma News - July 2017

This summer has been a fantastic one for Gamma with inter-house charity competitions, new House leadership under our prefects and House captain and a great showing at Sports Day. Keep reading to find out more about our inspiring Gamma students!

Gamma House Champion

This term Gamma launched their Gamma House Champion award. House Champions are awarded monthly to students that have shined, whether this be for enthusiasm, participation or showing House Spirit.

June 2017 Gamma House Champion: Soha Abushama 9DF

Soha was the proud recipient of the first Gamma House Champion for her eager attitude to get involved in the House system, as well as being generally lovely to both staff and students around school. Soha brought in lots of tins to donate to a local homeless shelter, participated in multiple Sports Day events for her tutor group and now hopes to be a Gamma prefect in year 10. Well Done Soha!

July 2017 Gamma House Champion: Rhys Harris 9AWO

Rhys has been a fantastic member of Gamma House and showed true spirit during the 1500 metres race at our Sports Day on Monday 17 July [See photo]. Rhys was a shining example of sportsmanship as he helped another student who was struggling around the lap for 3 laps. He has also recently achieved a Triple A award from his Learning Co-Ordinator for his most recent report and Tutee of the term from Mr Wood. Fantastic work Rhys!

Thank you

Miss Madge would like to say a massive thank you to Mossy, Charlie, Haddy and Danny. They have made her feel truly welcome into being head of Gamma House by being so friendly and willing to get involved. Their maturity and kindness with the new Year 6 Gamma students was brilliant to see. Furthermore, they helped the new students to be undefeated bench-ball champions on Thursday. Keep up the inspiring leadership folks!
