We’ve come to the end of term 3 and half of the academic year.
Today was World Thinking Day and Gordon had the privilege of hosting ‘Who Dares, Wins!’ a general knowledge competition
pitting the best minds the Gordon, All Faiths, Cedar and New Horizon’s Children’s Academies had to offer against each other in
a battle of wits and intelligence! All Faiths Children’s Academy were the winners and a year 4 boy from Cedar Children’s Academy could name 88 star constellations without any help! Well done to everyone who took part.
8 of our year 5 & 6’s took part in MYG Table Tennis yesterday. After several challenging hours demonstrating our Gordon Greats Habits our team came 1st place against 23 other schools. The children who attended had this to say: ‘Yesterday Jess, Jacob, Shanya, Daisie, Harvey, Kai, Rani and Zhi Hao went to the table tennis youth game tournament. We had plenty of laughs but best
of all we came in 1st place. Using flexibility, persistence and creativity we pushed through the scoreboard. There were many schools there that worked just as hard as we did, so we congratulated and supported themevery match whether we won or lost. Overall we had a great time and loved every second of it.’ Congratulations to everyone we are proud of you!
Unfortunately with this great news comes some sad news , Miss Chandler, admin extraordinaire, will be leaving the Gordon Children’s Academy on a promotion to another school, on the week starting 2nd March. She has been given an amazing opportunity at another school and we’re all very proud of her. She will be dearly missed at Gordon by staff, students and parents alike and we appreciate all she has done at Gordon.
Please make sure you take note of which clubs your children are in and the dates they are running. New Generation Sports Clubs are starting on the first week back while the teacher run clubs are continuing from term 3 and are starting on week commencing Monday 2nd March.
On Friday 6th March children are encouraged to come in dressed as their favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day.
We hope you all have a Happy Valentines Day a good half term!
Mrs R. Chetty-Marston
Acting Head of School
