For Excel day a group of Year 8 students organised playground activities and an Olympic quiz for our year group. Most people in the year donated a pound and all the money went to the Teenage Cancer Trust. The activities included an assault course, basketball, hula-hoops and skipping.
Students were rewarded with Teenage Cancer Trust tags if they did well, motivated their team or showed that they were really trying hard. The winning quiz teams also received a tag.
Everyone enjoyed the activities and the leaders worked really well as a team to make it all happen. The aim of the day was to raise awareness and money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and we raised a grand total of £323.

Kingsbury, who had lost 4-1 to Claremont the previous year, understandably started quite nervously but as they got into their stride, began to dictate the game.
Their control was rewarded on 25 minutes, when Ashlee Hibbert received the ball on the left wing. He used his pace and strength to battle past three Claremont players before putting a great cross in to the box, which Adam Hamdi flicked passed the keeper and in to the back of the net.
Kingsbury held their lead until half time with some solid defending.
Mid way through the second half, Claremont equalised with a superb free kick swerved around the Kingsbury wall. Almost immediately, though, Kingsbury were back in front. Ashlee Hibbert once again drove down the line and his pinpoint cross was met by a fantastic diving header from Adam Hamdi for his, and Kingsbury’s, second of the match.
Claremont mounted attack after attack as the clock began to run down but through some stout, last ditch defending from Jermaine Denny and Joshua Machado and some brilliant saves from goalkeeper, Hayden Graham, Kingsbury held on to take the trophy, with a hard earned 2-1 win.

Two goals each from Sami Abraham and Tomi Ibrahim secured a great victory in which the whole squad performed to a level the opponents couldn’t compete with. Defensively the team worked very hard, limited the opponents scoring opportunities and made effective decisions. The whole squad celebrated on the final whistle as the victory crowned a fantastic season for all those involved, congratulations to the whole team.
