Lister students competed in the indoor cricket tournament at Newvic College, which had 9 teams participating. Lister won their group games and reached the final of the tournament. Unfortunately, Lister lost in the final to Brampton in a very hard fought contest. This was a great achievement and the boys did the school proud finishing with a silver medal. Well done boys!
The team included: Mohammed Haroon, Anil Sadekin, Het Patel, Usman Yusuf, Jahanzeb iqbal, Ahmed Khan, Youvan Patel
Last week 9 students from year 7, 8, 9 and 10 who attend Girl’s Club regularly played in singles and doubles Badminton matches against St Angelas School. All matches had very close scores with Andreia in year 8 winning her game! All students received certificates for their participation and should be proud of their commitment to Girl’s Club. If any students would like these opportunities please attend Girl’s Club on Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime in the Sports Hall with Miss Maxwell and Miss Moore, praises will be awarded to new students who attend!
Students from Years 8-11 were taken to see Kinky Boots at the Adelphi Theatre in the Strand as a reward for their hard work, progress and good behaviour in Dance.
The group had a great time and we all have new admiration for people that dance in heels!
Some of the quotes from Lister students
“The best thing we have ever seen”
“The themes were great and really made me think”
“the singing was fantastic and the dancing, wow!’
There will have another big treat for reward students in the next few months. Will you be one of the chosen few?
To celebrate the success of A Servant to Two Masters and say ‘Well Done’ to the talented cast and backstage crew we journeyed to Hollywood Bowl in Canada Quays to go Bowling! Lots of fun (and food!) was had by all and there were plenty of strikes to celebrate too. Well done everyone, we look forward to the next production!
The U16 basketball team have enjoyed a long and successful season but now sadly it is the end of the road with defeat in the last 16 of the London Youth Games. As Newham Champions, Lister went on to beat Enfield Champions setting up a last 16 tie away at Redbridge Champions Chadwell Academy.
Lister fell way behind in the first quarter, the large number of spectators playing on their usually fearless confidence. Tactical changes and resilience from the boys brought Lister level at half time, Timmy and Reinaldes scoring well while excellent performances from Filipe, Max and Aaron energised the team. It was Chadwell, however, who took advantage in the third with the big number 9 slam dunking. Home spectators cheered in high spirits and Lister found themselves unable to reply.
Manraj, Eric and Frances (Year 10) came on in the fourth and turned the score line around to put Lister in sight but it was not to be Listers day.
Well done to the boys – Eric, Manraj, Frances, Filipe, Timmy, Reinaldes, Max, Aaron, Hocine – for an excellent cup run.
Come along to make ice cream, gooey slime and fly a drone, all in the name of Science.

In Specialist Curriculum today, we discussed Up-cycling, and Ms Bland showed us her own textiles prints that she designed for sportswear.
We looked at upcycled products such as hangers made from chairs, jewellery made from pencil stumps, and a paper chair.
We then made our own clothes in teams using mannequins, newspaper, pins, scissors and masking tape. Here is what some of my fellow students said:
Rida: ‘It was fun and creative.’
Amina: ‘It was good fun working in teams’.

On Friday, 62 lucky students were rewarded for their consistent good progress and behaviour with a visit to the Better Extreme trampoline centre in Upney. The visit was funded with a grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation, who recently presented Jamal Hussain, Learning Mentor, with a Leader’s Award for his outstanding commitment to the personal development of students at Lister. As you can see from the quotes below, all students (and staff) had a fantastic time, with duelling and dodge ball being the favourite activities!
Kai Miah – Year 8 – “This trip was epic”
Hansa Rashid (Year 9) – “This was a really fun trip, I had a great time with my friends”.
Fatima Hassan (Year 11)
– “I am really happy that we had an opportunity to go on a fun trip like this in year 11; it allows you to relax and take your mind off exams for a short while”.
