Two representatives from The Storehouse, a local charity for the homeless and those in need, attended our Harvest Assembly and were presented with a fabulous selection of donated items. They talked to us about the great work that their charity does and showed us some very interesting pictures. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who donated and helped for this wonderful cause.
Tug of War Competition
During the last week of term the classes in Middle and Secondary school have been taking part in lots of sports activities . For each event they've taken part in they have earned points for their teams. To end the week, we held our annual tug of war tournament. The winning team earned 1000 points towards their totals and the runner up earned 750 points. The winning team of the tug of war was Vikings, followed by Normans. In second place was Saxons and then finally Romans. Mr Martin added all of the points together and it was announced that the overall winner of the whole of Sports week was..........Romans! A huge well done to them.
On Monday 9th July we started our Enrichment week which consisted of lots of different activities around the school for pupils to try. We had Spanish dancing, Brazilian Carnival Music, rocket making and a circus skills workshop to name but a few. As you can see from the photos below it was a very enjoyable week.
Jack Petchey Leader Award
Every year we present the Jack Petchey Leader Award to a member of staff or volunteer at the school who has 'gone that extra mile' to support the pupils at our school. This year we were pleased to announce the winner..........Margaret Bowden. Mr Maxwell presented Margaret with the award to recognise the many years of voluntary work she has done at Cedar Hall. Margaret joined GB for a class celebration in which she was given a framed certificate and a medallion. A huge thank you goes out to her for all of the support she has provided to pupils and staff at the school.
New Arrival at Cedar Hall!
On Wednesday 6th June, Luke in GB class , Mr Sankey, Mrs Dabbs and Miss Gothard went to Wiltons pet shop to pick up the newest recruit to the Cedar Hall animal club. Luke Austin had won the Jack Petchy award last term and wanted to spend his prize money on an animal to replace Maya our bearded dragon that passed away recently.
So........ meet Austin (or Austina if it happens to be a girl!) a four month old Horsefield tortoise. Isn't he/she cute?! In one of the photos you can see Luke met another tortoise who would set you back £1000 pounds if you wanted to buy him!!!!
Come into the science room during animal club at lunchtime if you want to hold him/her.
Prostate Cancer Fundraising
This term the whole school have been supporting a charity for Prostate Cancer. Mrs Buttigieg and Mr Martin have held a variety of events at school which has enabled us to raise a huge amount of money. The total currently stands at £1000! We are extrememly proud of this and our fundraising still continues. If anybody would like to contribute please visit Mr Martin's Just Giving page - www.justgiving.com/fundraising/paulmartin77
Mrs Buttigieg held a fantastic bric a brac sale for pupils and staff to visit which proved very popular (see picture below). Mr Martin will be completing a charity bike ride in the next few weeks and in the picture below he is wearing the shirt he will wear on the ride. Many thanks to all of his sponsors.
Sports Relief 2018
Once again this year the school took part in some activities for Sports Relief. Pupils collected names of friends and family who were willing to sponsor them to run a mile. The run took place around the school grounds with many pupils running more than a mile! Lots of money was raised and great fun was had by all. A huge thank you to all those sponsors out there!
Jack Petchey Award
Jack Petchey Award Winners - Easter 2018
The two winners for the Spring Term were announced recently at our end of term Easter assembly.
The first winner is George who is in his final year and will be sorely missed. Staff and pupils voted for George as he is a great friend to many and a very popular pupil around the school. George always impresses staff with his motivation and determination in all of his lessons. He consistently works hard and produces great pieces of work in all of his lessons.
The second winner is Luke who is also in his final year at Cedar Hall. Luke has had to deal with a number of medical issues over quite a period of time yet always shows determination at school to join in when he can and do his very best. Luke also successfully attended the Fellowship Afloat trip last year and staff again were very impressed with how well he did whilst he was there.
A huge well done to both of these pupils who will now be deciding how to spend their £250 winnings around the school.
Fellowship Afloat 2018
The annual residential trip to Fellowship Afloat took place again this year. Lots of pupils who had never been before attended and had lots of fun. There were some great activities on offer such as, the high ropes, sailing, canoeing, crabbing, archery and even a visit to the zoo!
