On Friday 17th June the Year 9 NCFC Enterprise group held their 'Neon Disco' here at Sprowston Community High School in aid of the 'Sporting Light' charity run by Community Sports Foundation.

The students were incredible. They arrived back at school early to set up the venue with decorations they had made, prepare food and drink stations and ensure there were signs for parents to follow for those that hadn't been to the school before.

The event was a real success, there were 50 Falcon Students at the disco all of whom had a great time. With the help and support from staff at both Falcon and Sprowston, the year 9 students were relaxed and showed how organised, mature and polite they all were. They took control over the event with ease.

With various stalls; from sweets, cakes, lucky dip, tombola and neon goodies the students were able to raise £268.40 that evening.Well done!

I am so proud of the group and how they conducted themselves throughout their project within school and the event itself.

On 15th June, 10 students from year 9 competed in the National Final of the Translation bee in Cambridge. Although we didn't get through to the final four, the students performed admirably and can be very proud of being amongst the very last few participants (of the several thousand originally signed up)

A huge well done to everyone involved!

We have really enjoyed our recent visits to our feeder Schools to see Yr6 students and staff. One of the most pleasing parts of these visits is that we get to take some of our Yr7s back to their old school to speak with Yr6s about their experiences and to catch up with the teachers they had at KS2.

Our students never fail to impress on these occasions and once more they were an absolute credit to Sprowston Community High School and to themselves.

On 27th May some year 7s took part in group work with Miss Williams to learn about the importance of good attendance.  Out of the group 6 managed 100% attendance for the half term.

These were Megan Galey, Amy Herron, Lily Neave, Ben Tidswell, Xenia Godfrey and Lauren-Ann Davis.

Because of their excellent attendance those 6 went into a draw to win one of two £10 Amazon vouchers and the lucky winners were Xenia and Amy.  All the students have produced some excellent work and to say well done they had a session in the Link playing games and having a few nibbles.

Well done to all those involved.

Year 7 Form Poster

The Year 7 forms have been making Form posters which tell us something about each student in their Tutor Group. We have had some truly fantastic efforts so far and thank you to Chrinovic, Hannah, Maddy and Ellie for bringing 7BU's contribution to the Year Office - great stuff!

Thank you to Mrs Nielsen for organising the trip to the UEA for a group of YR7 students on the 26th May. A really inspiring trip and very enjoyable.

It seems incredible that we are in our last half term for the year already and how quickly time has gone. I would like to say, as I have done in many assemblies this year, how impressed I have been with this year group and how much both myself and Mrs Adams have enjoyed working with you all.

I hope you had an enjoyable break.

Head of Year 7
