Year 9+10 spent their PSHE lesson last week being treated to a very special music performance by X-Factor 2013 band Brick City.  They are currently touring schools nationally for a drugs awareness charity, spreading the message that drugs can have a disastrous impact on the lives of young people.  Singing a mix of their favourite cover tunes and tunes of their own they entertained our year 9 + 10 students greatly, although we found it difficult to get them up dancing!!!
In-between songs they were sharing personal stories about their lives and the impact drugs, and gang culture has had and still has on them.
 
It was a brilliant hour.  Thank you to Brick City.

Brick City, Are slowly becoming the talk of the city. The London based vocal harmony group who narrowly missed out on the X-Factor live finals in 2013 are showing that hard work, dedication and perseverance are the perfect tools for success. The groups eclectic musical palette brings together a collective sound, image and electrifying stage presence that popular music has not seen since Spice Girls, Black Eyed Peas and Destinys Child.

After the success of their schools Tour in 2014 Brick City are now taking the ‘The Love Come Down National Tour’ on the road, in conjunction with their new single LCD.This tour will see Brick City Going into schools all over the UK talking  about the effects of drug, smoking and alcohol abuse. The tour goes out with a special mission statement from the band:

“Brick City have always been actively involved with young people weather it be inividually or collectivly, so when the idea of a school tour was intially proposed to us we didnt want to go and just sing songs we were very much aware of the drug smoking and underage drinking surrounding areas in the UK, we want these young people to understand the harsh releaties you can face in the future if you choose to make the wrong choices
 
WE NEED TO ARM THEM WITH THE TOOLS TO SAY NO!”

The first time I drove a kart was when I was 7 years old on a summer holiday with my family, it was a feeling I've never had before and was determined to have another go. This led on to me researching where  I could race at home. Two months later when I became 8 years old I asked my parents for my birthday to take part in the 3 day arks test at Daytona in Milton Keynes to see if I could be fast and safe enough to compete in their inkart championship. Not only did I beat the lap record, I finished the championship in 2nd place which is a great achievement in my first year. I then saved my money from birthdays and Christmas's to do my Motor Sport Association licence to race at national level. Last year after competing in the Kimbolton championship I finished 5th and in the Whilton MIll championship I finished 3rd overall. I currently race at Shenington, Rissington, Whilton Mill and Kimbolton in championships and also competing in the tkm midland interclub championship. I plan to go further away and enter the 'O' plate championship.

My passion in life is go karting, there is not a feeling in the world that is much better than waiting at the starting line, the adrenaline rushing through me and then finishing at the chequered flag. I know it's my hobby but my attitude is very mature and believe I can always do better and find ways to achieve this while competing. The thing is I have the hunger for it and will not stop until I get to number 1. I have recently moved up to junior tkms which can hit speeds of 75 mph. For only doing 7 races so far in this class, my times are as fast as the front runners who are 3 years older than me and had much more time with this size kart.

A huge thank you to all the staff who support me in the running and delivery of the Longtown trip. The trip was fantastic and the students were a credit to themselves and the school. They were able to experience mountain walking, Gorge walking, Caving, Climbing, Canoeing and a variety of team building activities. They made so much progress emotionally, socially and physically that they would all agree that it was an experience that they would love to repeat. It was lovely to see the expression on their faces when they have just plunged 15ft into the freezing cold river water, or managed to climb the 25ft climbing wall, or squeezed themselves through the Letterbox while caving. The elation on their faces once they had pushed themselves and achieved was fantastic to see.  Here are a few images to show the levels of excitement and achievement they experienced.

“I had a lot of fun in Longtown. I enjoyed gorge walking. The water was freezing and I got to climb on the rocks.”

Weavers Year 7 Rugby Team embarked on their first rugby experience over at Wellingborough RFC this afternoon.

With only 2 players who have played rugby before joining Weavers we have been working hard to get boys involved.

We took 16 players and enjoyed the afternoon greatly.  Losing to a very experienced Latymer College and drawing with Sir Christopher Hatton and Montsaye School.

All the players tried very very hard and were a credit to the Academy.  Special mention to Kai Kinnel and Josh Peacher who have never played rugby and were brilliant.  Our experienced players Jacob Cox and Ed North were equally brilliant and led the team very well.

 

We look forward to our next outing!!

Year 8 +9 Tournaments are coming up.

 

Rugby training is Thursday after school – we welcome all years to this.

Wellingborough Rugby Club is minutes from here and would love to see some of our players playing their on a Sunday morning.  Please check out their website of you are interested.  I know many of our year 7’s would love to be involved with rugby outside of school.

 

Thanks to parents for your support in getting them to training.

 

Reminder – All students who play rugby in PE or in matches for the school MUST have gum shields!!! They can be purchased from student office for £2.

On September 26, Year 7 students celebrated European Day of Languages by learning about different cultures. They practiced the Spanish art of Flamenco dancing, learned to sing a song in French and had a go at Japanese calligraphy and speaking some Italian. The day finished with the students enjoying listening to Spanish guitar and watching a Flamenco demonstration before they had one last chance to enthusiastically practice their new dance skills.

I would like to say how proud I was to be invited to a Canterbury Kit design event as part of the RFU All-Schools projects. The projects gives all schools taking part in the All Schools project the opportunity to attend a Canterbury kit design workshop, which were held at local rugby clubs across the country. The cross-curricular workshops enabled the 3 lucky boys Jacob Cox, Harry Gayton and Jake Samwell the chance to design the schools team rugby jersey, whilst learning about the core values of rugby, the pride associated with the shirt and the importance of colours, logos and emblems.The boys were a credit to the school throughout the event and you can clearly see from the photos they had a great day and the shirt is one that we are all waiting to see and play in.
