Week 3 Update

Athletics: We were very impressed with the fabulous attitude and effort displayed by all of Year 7 & 8 at our Athletic Sports. The staff from Room 20 (the Ferndale unit) commented on how inclusive and positive our children were of the Room 20 students. Many thanks to those of you who helped to run events or supported the children. Next week Bruce Rodger will establish who will be doing what at the Zone Sports, which are on Wednesday Nov. 6th.

Health Topic: We are about to start our Changes at Puberty topic. This is a series of 4 lessons looking at the changes that occur to girls and boys at puberty and the daily routines associated with these. If you would like more information on what we teach, please drop in to see me in Room 19.

Quiz Night: We hope you have got your team together and bought your tickets for Quiz Night on November 2nd. We are still looking for two more adults to help out on the night, please contact if you can help out. We are also looking for a group of Year 7 & 8s to help decorate and set up the Hall on the Saturday afternoon, bonus leadership points will be given for this. If you have not yet sent in your donation for the hampers, a non-perishable grocery item or something for the 'Pamper Pack', please do so ASAP.

Leadership Awards: Bronze, Silver and Gold leadership Awards will be presented at the next PRIDE Assembly on November 1st.

Top Team is coming up on the morning of November 8th. This is a fun packed event that sees the children working through a diverse range of team challenges, several involving water. We need parent help to run this event. This is a great chance to see your children in action, working with others. Please let Tracy know, in Room 17, if you can help out.

Year 8 Leavers' Yearbook: The Year 8s need to get their Yearbook Profile completed and handed in ASAP, it is now overdue. Please remind your child to get this done. It involves asking a teacher to write a memory they have of them, any teacher who is still at Beckenham, as well as asking a friend to write a memory and writing their own.

Dowelling Needed: We are making 14 hobby horses for Ali Baba and need some dowelling for their 'stick bodies'. If you have an old broom stick etc lying around, please sent it to Room 19.
