CROSS COUNTRY DROP DOWN DAY
T YEAR 9 & 10 DDD
he 2019/2020 Drop Down Days kicked off in spectacular fashion with the inaugural House Cross-
Country Championship. Every student in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 took part, aiming to gain as many house points as possible for their respective houses. The day begun with students hearing some inspiring stories from staff about their passion for running and its many benefits - the highlight being Ms Barry’s presentation on her fantastic medal haul and why she runs. Scholars then had an opportunity to don their house colours, create banners and get into the spirit of cheering on their fellow house members. The school descended on Hornfair Park and the races begun under grey skies, some say perfect weather for cross-country. A huge well done to all members of the
school community who took part in the event, especially our scholars and staff! Special days like this always bring the school together and remind us how well we demonstrate our values of Ambition, Growth, Fellowship and Scholarship. As with any competition, there was a winner – Nightingale! Congratulations to all Nightingale students, who will be looking to defend their school crown next year.
A final special mention to the individual award winners, they are as follows: Year 7 girls: Scarlett W, Year 7 boys: Jonathan N, Year 8 boys: Aaron A-B, Year 8 Girls: Poppy C, Year 9 Boys: Edoardo B, Year 9 Girls: Phyllis O and Elise K, Year 10 Boys: Muhamed A, Year 10 Girls: Mercy R.
MARATHON MAN April
It is without doubt the biggest challenge of my life, but I am hugely honoured to have been given the opportunity.
O I am running for an amazing charity
called The Children’s Society who aim to fight child poverty and neglect and help all children have a better chance in life. I am sure you will agree that these values certain align with our values as a school and I would love to raise as much money as possible for this wonderful cause.
I will be looking to run a few fundraising events at the school over the next few months, but in the meantime would appreciate any donations on my Just Giving page. This can be found at:
Thank you for your support and I’ll be sure to keep you updated on my progress!
Mr Munday FIXTURES AND RESULTS I
t’s a busy last few weeks of term for the PE Department as school sport takes centre stage!
As we go to press, our school football teams are making great progress in the Blackheath and District Cup. All of our sides are still in cup competition, which is testament to the hard work the teams are putting in together at training on Friday’s after school at Meridian Sports and Social Club. In the coming weeks:
AGFS v Thomas Tallis (Year 7) AGFS v Plumstead Manor (Year 8) AGFS v Prendergast Ladywell (Year 9) AGFS v Harris Greenwich (Year 10) AGFS v Deptford Green (Year 11)
Our girls’ teams are also still in competition and we await our next set of fixtures, again this is down to the hard work the girls are putting in during their lunchtime training sessions. Well done all!
