Lutalo Muhammud – GB silver medalist, Rio 2016
A select few students were privileged enough to meet the world famous Lutalo Muhammud during Super Learning Day 3. A year 7 student said ‘Today we had an amazing experience with a GB Olympian – Lutalo Muhammud. A Taekwondo legend taught us how discipline can come a long way and that you really can achieve your dreams. It was great to see his physical technique when he kicked the targets. Thanks to Miss Moore for this amazing opportunity.’
On Monday 6th February 6 students from Table Tennis club competed in the Jack Petchey East London Schools’ Individual Table Tennis Qualifiers. There were 12 schools involved in the competition and Lister entered an U13 and U16 team which had 3 students in each. Unfortunately we were up against strong competition, and neither teams made it past the group stages, however, Moustapha (Yr8), Abel (Yr9), and Akil (Yr9) won a match each, and all students received a certificate for their participation. If you are interested in Table Tennis please come to club on Monday lunchtimes with Miss Maxwell.
Accelerated Reader reward trip to Docklands Museum
On Friday 27th January our best readers visited the Docklands Museum to reward them for their fantastic results on Accelerated Reader during the Autumn term. A great day was had by all, with the visit to the Sailortown Gallery being everyone’s favourite, while the Slavery Gallery proved a very interesting and moving experience. The day finished in the library with celebratory pizza and cake, so get reading and doing your quizzes to be in with a chance of an invitation to the next trip to the Natural History Museum at the end of March.
