20150520_155508

Lister’s Inclusive Cricket Team took gold yesterday after beating St. Angela’s and Stratford in the Preliminary Round, hosted by Lister. The final match against Stratford was a close and exciting affair but the Lister boys held their nerve to win by just ten runs. Particular mention must go to David (who excelled in his fielding) and to Andrij (who made two crucial catches) for their performance yesterday.

The Lister Team were not only a credit to Lister School but also showed great team spirit and determination. They thoroughly deserved their gold medals!

This result now means that the Team will be heading to the world famous Lords Cricket Ground for the Final, which will take place on the 9th June.

Well done to Shanawaz, Ahmed, Usman, David, Het, Jahanzeb, Harshal and Andriy on your performance yesterday. Congratulations also to Mr. Rashid who has coached the team.

On a very wet and cold day at the Terence MacMillan Stadium, Graham took a bronze medal in the Year 10 Boys 800 metres, at the Newham Schools Athletics Championships. Graham set his own pace throughout the race and was able to take bronze in a very strong field of runners.
“I was not only impressed by Graham’s determination in the race, but also by the way that he was able to support other Lister students who were struggling against the elements”, said Ms. Strachan.
Well Done Graham!!
