NEW STAFF AT SMBS
This term we welcome two new members of staff to our team at St. Marylebone Bridge which is an exciting time for our community. Mr Leslie Mitchell will be continuing his work at the school in a new full time role as Head of Student Behaviour & Welfare. Mr Mitchell has over 20 years experience counselling in schools and charities and has worked with many of our students before. As we wish Ms. Tara Nicholetts our best wishes as she goes on maternity leave, we welcome Mr. Tim Smith to take over her role teaching Art, DT, English and as tutor group leader of Putney. Mr. Smith begins at the school on16th April.
Year 8 Art and DT
In Year 8 Art and DT we have been exploring street art, using spray paint, stencils and freehand drawing to create works in the style of Banksy and Blek le Rat. These are some of the end products that are now displayed in school.
From 17th – 23rd March the whole school participated in raising money for Sport Relief. Sport Relief is a charitable week which brings together the worlds of sport and entertainment to raise money to help vulnerable people in the UK and in the world’s poorest countries. Students took part in many activities throughout the week to raise money.
On Tuesday and Wednesday students and staff competed in press up and plank competitions. On Wednesday afternoon, the whole school used the rowing machines to attempt to row the distance of the English Channel. With great determination, students took to the rowing machines to row as much of the 26 mile distance as they could before swapping with another student. Impressively, the students managed to cross the Channel in just under an hour. The students, not content with just rowing the distance of the Channel, rowed on. Within the hour and a half, the students managed to row over 52 kilometres, a fantastic achievement.
On Thursday, the students and staff teamed up to take part in a football tournament. The football was played in great spirit and congratulations to Team Langley and Team Gadogbe for coming out as joint winners.
A mixture of events took place on Friday, as students took part in individual challenges, they took part in a range of activities including running laps or completing press ups. In the afternoon, the Year 9 hospitality course invited parents, carers and staff to a cake sale that they had been organising as part of their terms work.
The week was a huge success and all of the students managed to take part in some way. In total the school raised £203.80. Thank you to every one who supported the students or donated to a very important cause.
