Year 9 and 10 GCSE Dance students had a fantastic workshop with Jasmine and Marvin, dancers from East London Dance. The students had a great time learning contemporary dance technique and floor work. The Year 9 boys enjoyed working with Marvin on tricks and balances.

The students are enjoying all the Dance styles and performances they have experienced so early on in their course.  They have many other great things to look forward to.

Celebration of Achievement Evening

On Wednesday 11 October, Lister hosted it’s annual showcase event, Celebration of Achievement evening. The event is held annually to recognise and celebrate the academic achievement of our students, both present and past. The event also witnessed some wonderful musical and dance performances. It was a wonderful occasion attended by our staff, parents and Governors. A special thanks to Andrew Arnold, a member of our governing body, who gave an inspirational speech and spoke at length about the importance of making the right ‘choices’.

It was equally great to see so many of our current Year 12 cohort and pleasing to hear how well they have settled in their next stage of learning. Ms Griffin provided the closing remarks along with the promise that the school community will continue to work together to build on the success we have had in the past few years with our GCSE results.

Under 16 girls football news

U’16 girls show great resilience!

The under 16 girls football team showed passion for the game yesterday as they played Emerson Park at home in the Essex cup. Every student exceeded Miss Moore’s expectations from the start by all remembering to bring in their shinpads! The game got off to a lively start with Miriam sweeping at the back to clear any shooting opportunities and Alieyah saving any shots that did manage to pass the back four. Lister manage to hold the star studded opposition for 12minutes until the first Ronaldo type free kick flew into the back of the net. Unfortunately just before half time, after getting her fingertips to a shot Alieyah landed awkwardly on her ankle leaving Lister needing a volunteer goalkeeper, Ledia filled those boots, thank you! The girls continued to show their resilience by pushing through to have a few goal scoring opportunities for Mya, Asmaa and Monika. Although the team lost they made both themselves and Miss Moore SOOOOOOO proud. The picture says it all. Well done girls and see you at training on Thursday.
