Congratulations to the two students for the event yesterday (Tuesday 13/03/2012). Two of our students were in London to interview Sir Mervyn King (Governor of the Bank of England). The interview will be on Radio 4 tonight about 10pm and also on BBC News at some point in the future.
I enjoyed the Pintsize Theatre production because it was an interesting and fun way to teach us about dangers and effects of alcohol. The production showed how easy it is to become involved with alcohol at an early age and gave us help on how to avoid those kind of situations. The team also gave the names of support groups that we could turn to if we were worried about a family member or a friend. Overall, I really liked the production and I am now aware on how alcohol affects thousands of people across the UK. I hope they will be doing more productions in the future.

The Pintsize play had a vast impact on me and other pupils. It taught us a moral lesson informing us why drinking is harmful and why to drink responsibly. It showed us the consequences of Rose's actions after she got drunk on the bridge. It also told us the effect alcohol can have on other people such as babies and young children if their parents are alcoholics. Overall, it was a great learning experience that I will never forget.

They have rounded off yet another very successful year of Netball for West Bridgford School, with the year 7's, 9's and 11's all finishing as runners-up in their respective county tournaments and the year 10's coming 3rd. Both the year 9's and 11's also competed in the East Midlands Regional Competition in Northamptonshire, playing a very high standard of Netball throughout the day.
Well done to all of the girls who have represented the school this year and a special thank you to all of the year 10's and year 12's who have helped with the coaching and umpiring of the younger players. A fantastic effort by all involved!
Congratulations to the Year 7 Girls Futsal Team on winning Gold at the Nottingham School Games. The girls representing the Rushcliffe area got off to a tough start, but showed tremendous effort and played some incredible football. In the final the girls played a very strong City side! However through sticking to their game plan the girls managed to keep possession and out-fought their opponents to come away with the Gold medal. They now go on to represent Nottinghamshire at the East Midlands Finals. Well done Girls.
