Samantha's on target for success!

 07 July 2017

Early last year Samantha Fretwell in Year 9 attended some Archery after school sessions. Since then she joined the Aequus Archers Club and after only five weeks was invited to compete in a competition in Leicester. Within the first six months of learning to shoot Samantha was awarded the Junior Master Bowman status and has been invited to shoot at the Junior Masters Competition in August.

Recently she attended Lilleshall, the sports centre for England, in the National Outdoor Championships and has again achieved Junior Bowman Status by scoring very high scores at three records status shoots.

Samantha has been selected to shoot for Derbyshire and on the 23rd of July she will be competing as a top member of the Derbyshire team. She is also now competing for the region and will be shooting as part of the East Midlands Archery Society Team (EMAS)

Shooting for County first year, County and region second year.......England next?

All this from attending one after school club!

Well done Samantha!

Sainsbury's Chef Awards 

 03 July 2017

 Our year 9 catering students have successfully passed the Sainsbury's 2* and 3* Chef Awards.

With this year’s theme of ‘International Cuisine’ the students had one hour to prepare, cook and serve a main course dish and all its accompaniments.  Many of the students made their own naan breads, poppadoms, salsa, guacamole, garlic bread or spicy wedges to accompany their main course dish with some students starting as early as 8:15am (or working through break) to achieve a higher grade! Students achieved grades of up to Distinction + for their practical examination and will be awarded with a certificate from Sainsbury's once the supporting written work has been assessed.

The students are now continuing to work towards the Sainsbury’s 4* Chef Award.

Mathematical Achievements

17 May 2017

In April our Y7 & Y8 students took part in the Junior Maths Challenge with amazing results; many students achieved a bronze, silver or gold award. Two Y8 students, Jennifer Brazel and Lizzie Moore, have qualified for the Junior Kangaroo follow on round, with only a few thousand nationally achieveing this. Maths teacher, Mr Cross, commented "It's the first time I recall having more than one student qualify for a follow on round!"- well done girls!

 

Further congratulations go to Sam Holt in Y10 who competed in the Pink Kangaroo round, attaining a merit qualification - only 25% of pupils get such a great result. Sam has also accepted a place at the 43rd National Mathematics Summer School to take place in July in Leeds, a week long residential designed for young people with an interest in mathematics, where he will be amongst 48 other high achieving mathematics students. Well done!

8LB's Advent Calendar

20 December 2016

During December 8LB did a 'reverse Advent calendar'; instead of opening gifts themselves they assigned a day to every member of the tutor group to each bring in an item of food. The end result was a fantastic food hamper to donate to a local homeless shelter in Ilkeston. Well done 8LB.

Non Uniform Day

09 December 2016

On 2 December we held a non-uniform day raising a total of £1082 which has been donated to the local charity, YMCA Derby. The charity aims to deliver high quality housing accommodation, support, information and advice, with the aim of making a positive difference to young people, in order for them to achieve their potential as empowered individuals. Here’s an insight into how the money will help;

 

•           £2.50 buys a proper meal for one of their residents

•           £50 is the cost of preparing a room for a new resident

•           £100 buys a furniture pack for a resident moving into their own place

•           £208 is the cost of a week’s housing and catering for a homeless person

 

We would like to say a huge thank you to the students, their families, and the staff at HGSC for their contributions.
