Congratulations must go to Nathan Bekteshi following the fantastic piece of homework he recently submitted.
Nathan has received the Principal Vivo Award, after being nominated by his Food Teacher; Mrs Morris-Walcott, for producing ‘My Curry Song’:
Pupils made 6-12 chocolate muffins each and were a real credit to their primary school.
Pupils described the visit as “the best trip to a secondary school ever!” Thank you to both primary schools for attending and a huge thank you to Mrs Morris-Walcott for delivering both sessions.
On Wednesday 13 December, Smith’s Wood Sports College held its first ever Year 7 disco to reward the hardest working and best behaved pupils who have made an exceptional start to life at Smith’s Wood Sports College.
According to the pupils, the night could not have been any better:
“Utterly fantastic” – Harry
“The disco was really fun! We all gathered around to have dance battles… Its all we did for two hours straight”- Rhys
“The dancing was great! The music was phenomenal and the food could not have been better!” – Liam
The evening included a live DJ, burger van and photobooth.
The Smith’s Wood Sports College Prefect team were treated to a Christmas dinner – complete with turkey and sprouts – to celebrate the work they have carried out since September.
Summer 2016 GCSE, GCE and BTEC certificates are now ready for collection between the hours of 8.30am and 1.30pm. If you are unable to collect yourself you can nominate a family member or friend to collect on your behalf. You will need to send in a letter naming the person who will be collecting on your behalf and they will need to bring ID to confirm their identity.
Please note a number of students haven’t collected their certificate from previous years, they are available to collect during the above times. The same will apply if you are not collecting in person.
This term has been an eventful one for SWSC young writers: our College was invited to take part in a number of competitions that are opened to KS3 and KS4 students.
This term has started with launching KS3 creative writing competition, where students were invited to write a story. It was their chance to voice opinion, share a memory or dilemma, impart advice, or indulge in creative writing about hidden powers. A number of our students were encouraged to explore and express their opinions, inner feelings and inmost emotions.
The English staff would like to congratulate all our participants and we would like to confirm that: in third place is Romay Francis with his ambitious story The Power Within; in second place is Lisa Evans with her gripping and poignant account Hidden Powers.
Both students were awarded extra Vivos, school certificate and a small prize. We do hope they will show further commitment to our next competitions.
The teachers decided not to give the first prize this time in order to encourage our students to demonstrate more attention to technical writing of stories. Continue reading
Students from all of the schools joined together into a massed choir and learnt seven songs which they performed in the concert at the end of the day. The concert also included a song performed by just our students and our performance was exceptional. A massive well done to all the students who took part.
