At the weekend, a group of pupils went to watch Sunderland Vs AFC Wimbledon with staff from school as an extension of their evening football activity. Here are a few thoughts from some of the pupils who went along on the day:
“It was a mint day out with my mates! We had a meal at the Panda all you can eat in Sunderland and when we got to the match we were right next to the pitch. Sunderland ‘til I die – Haway the lads!Red and white army!” T. Martin – Year 11
“It was a lovely day out – we went for food, spent money at Poundland and froze my toes off at the game! Sunderland ‘til I die! Haway the lads!” K. Bowden – Year 11
“I met one of the LSAs and we went to get a quick cuppa and then we went to catch the Metro where we met the others in Sunderland. Then we went to Panda for lunch and we went to the match – I nearly lost my voice from chanting, it was all great fun! Haway the lads!” J. Howse – Year 11
“On Saturday 2nd February, I met Mr King at school, along with 4 others. We then set off for Sunderland in the cold snowy weather. Before the match we went to a Chinese restaurant, meeting Jordan, Sean and Mr Garbutt there. Mr Morris told me to write about the day, so that’s what I’m doing. Anyway, I tried mussels for the first time. We finally went to the game vs AFC Wimbledon, to get our seats. In the 58th minute McGeady scored an absolute smashing goal. The game ended 1-0 to Sunderland.”- CJ – Year 8
In outdoor education this term pupils in year 10 are participating in a skiing activity.
9A were responsible for this weeks assembly. Their topic was ‘the new year’., 9A organised and completed their assembly independently which is a first for Elemore. Well Done.
Friday 14th December was the annual table tennis tournament at Elemore Hall. The competition consisted of a key stage 3 competition and a key stage 4 competition. Both competitions were played as a round robin format with each player playing each other. All games were played in the correct spirit and some pupils were able to help score games for the others. Once both key stage winners had been decided, the Key stage 3 winner played against the Key stage 4 winner to find the overall winner of the tournament. Scott Horseman was the overall winner after a closely contested final! It was a fantastic day and well done to everyone who took part!
A small group of pupils from 9A attended a workshop held at the school by North East Ambulance Service volunteers. The pupils had access to an Ambulance vehicle and were taught what all the different pieces of machinery were used for. They also listened well to the volunteers discussing their job roles, how they got into this type of job, and what the highlights and difficulties were. It was a very informative workshop and the pupils were very engaged – well done!
Selected pupils visited The Oaks Secondary school to participate in their enterprise morning.
Today, 10B hosted a coffee morning to raise money for the Toilet Twinning Charity. They arranged and prepared everything including invites and making lots of toilet themed cakes. They invited a group from The Oaks Secondary School Sixth Form. So far they have raised £150 which they will keep adding to over the next term.
