Jack Petchey Outstanding Achiever Award

Winner For September—Jursan

Jursan (Class CM) won the Jack Petchey award for September! Jursan was nominated as he gives up his breaks and lunchtimes to litter pick outside to make the school litter free as much as he can.

As well as litter picking it has been noticed that Jursan has been tidying up in the boys’ toilets around the school again all in his own time.

Well Done Jursan!

Jursan chose to spend £250 towards the coach for the Devon trip!

Bin Upcycling! 

Meadow High strongly believe schools help to shape the habits that we continue in to as adults.

Students who participate in recycling now will have more of an incentive to carry on this "habit" as adults. We learn as children the benefits of recycling, how easy it is to recycle with the right system in place, and the concrete actions we can take to protect our planet. The recycling "habit" developed in school can serve to transform our communities, our jobs, our nation as we recycle more and more of the products we consume and the resources used to manufacture them.

We have spent a considerable amount of time reviewing bin types and those that would best suit our students’ needs and are pleased to confirm we now have bins in our classrooms for general waste and mixed recycling.

We are upcycling and repurposing our old bins so if you have any ideas of where we could donate to, how we can upcycle, or even if you wished to have one for your home... please get in touch with the school.

Many thanks, and Happy Recycling.

Crisis At Christmas

Wooden Christmas Ornaments

Following on from last year’s success, Mr Glass, our Design Technology Teacher, will be making wooden ornaments for sale.  Proceeds will go to the charity Crisis at Christmas.  If you would be interested in purchasing these, there is an order form and a list of items and prices attached to the end of this bulletin. Lots of different designs !

School Council

Form classes have been discussing what the role of a School member involves and they have held secret ballots to vote for who they would like to represent them in the School Council meetings.  The elected members were announced in assembly and we had a short meeting discussing our first whole school charity event.

By the time you read this we will have had a fayre at breaktime, which had many fun activities happening including Guess the Teddy's name, Guess how many sweets in a jar, draw Pudsey's face on a cookie (blindfolded!), cake sales and many more. This was followed by a fun assembly led by the council members doing their favourite – embarrassing teachers.

There will also be a box in the Library where tokens can be placed or hand them in at Main Reception.   

Thank you.

Sports News

On Wednesday we had sixteen Year 7-11 students representing Hillingdon U13's and U16's at thePanathlon Football Cup @ Wembley Goals.   All the students worked really hard, showing great teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the competition.

The U13's took part in a league format. All the players showed great determination and dedication to finish at a well deserved third place.  All players receive a Bronze Medal and the Third Place Trophy.

The U16's took part in a league format with a knockout competition at the end. The U16's came up against some strong competition; winning 2, losing 2 and drawing 1 game. These results put Hillingdon into the third place playoffs.  Third place playoffs; both teams played well, competing for every ball and overall played to a high standard. With 30 seconds remaining Hillingdon scored a great team goal. 4-4, game on!!  However, straight after kick off the opposing team ran into our half and drilled the ball low into the bottom corner. 4-5! Full Time!! The result meant the U16's finished at a respected fourth place overall, with the players receiving a Fourth Place Medal. 

Well done everyone, really proud!!
