Newham’s under-15 district squad earn success in London Cup with win at North Kent

Newham’s under-15 district squad defeated North Kent 3-2 to reach the quarter-finals of the London Cup last weekend.

Jordan Adeyemi, Joshua Junaid and Paul Sagoe netted for Terry Bobie Agyekum’s team to earn them moe success.

The boys in red headed across the river for the contest at Thamesmead Town looking to avenge a 2-1 reverse from last season.

Adeyemi opened the scoring with a fine left-footed strike before Newham doubled their advantage.

Brampton Manor Academy’s Junaid finished off a speedy counter-attacking move to make it 2-0.

An error by Newham at the back allowed North Kent to reduce the arrears, though that wasn’t the final goal of the first half.

Junior Rene produced a perfect through ball and Sagoe showed his pace and power to run behind and finish off to make it 3-1.

North Kent did pull one back late on, yet Newham’s victory was never in doubt and they held on comfortably.

Bobie Agyekum’s squad will face Brent or South London in the last eight after ending 2016 with nine wins from nine.

Next up for Newham is an exciting last 16 tie at home to Portsmouth in the National Cup in January.

“My man of the match was our goalkeeper Mason Deegan. He read the match outstandingly and on more than one occasion showed his game intelligence to preserve our lead,” said Bobie Agyekum.

Newham: Tony Shaw, Jordan Adeyemi (Royal Docks), Desharn Felix (Cumberland), Junior Rene (Tunmarsh), Matthew Ughelumba (Rokeby) Ebube Agu, Kassim Aidoo and Jamal (St Bons), Paul Sagoe (Langdon), Mason Deegan, Jyotirmoy Paul & Joshua Junaid (Brampton Manor Academy), Abubakar Sharif and Sergio Tavares (Lister Community School).

Lister Lions gain Gold

On Friday our SEN Cheer leading team, Lister Lions achieved the Gold Standard at the Winter showcase at the Excel Centre. Despite having to alter their routine slightly due to some absences the group performed brilliantly. Ms Coke, Ms Sharon, Ms Annette, Ms Deborah and Ms Camelia were so proud of the team.

Lister Lions narrowly missed out on being Grand Champions by a mere 0.5 which was awarded to NewVic. We all cheered especially as ex-student Michal was part of the NewVic squad.

Faulty Telephone

The fault with the school phones is partially repaired, and we apologise for any inconvenience you may have experienced trying to contact us.

It is now possible to ring the school on the main number, and the house teams directly on the numbers below. Unfortunately the voicemail system is not working, so it is not possible to use the main switchboard or leave messages for staff.

To report student absence or talk to your child’s house team, the direct dial numbers are:

Da Vinci House – 0208 586 6093

Galileo House – 0208 586 6094

Hawking House – 0208 586 6097

King House – 0208 586 6095

Shelley House – 0208 586 6096

If you cannot get through on these numbers you can report a student absence to reception, and they will pass on the message to the House team.

We are continuing to work with our PFI partner RM Education to seek a full resolution to the matter as soon as possible.

Professional Portfolio – Textiles Visitor

Today we were able to look at Elinor McBreaty’s work that she did at university. It was interesting as she had told us how she had done art when she was 13 and actually had not done any art since,but she took textiles. I was able to relate her work to mine as she had done a lot of experimenting on top of her work after photocopying it meaning that she was able to layer without worrying that she may ruin it because she would always have the original. Overall it was inspiring to see what a portfolio in university would look like as I realised it’s not so different to what my portfolio looks like.

Aneesa year 11 textiles.
