Last Saturday, our Lister computing scholars went to programme with Imperial University students. Students were able to programme through robotics. A massive well done to Ashraful Islam and team for coming first in the Challenge. It was an enjoyable day and a valuable experience for our students.

On Friday 17th March, the PE Department took 12 students from Fitness Club and specialist PE to compete in the National Junior Indoor Rowing Championships at Lee Valley Athletics Centre. There were over 2500 students in attendance from across the country, and as well as competing in rowing races, students experienced London Youth Rowing’s festival of sport, and took part in activities such as an outdoor climbing wall, laser tag, cycling, basketball and many more. Our best result in the rowing races was in the Junior Relay, where Andriy, Fuquan, Samir and Nazmul rowed 2000m as as team and came 36th out of 75 schools. In the year 9 individual race (rowing continuously for 4 minutes), Andriy, came 94th out of 211 students – so a big well done to him! It was a fantastic day and all students received merits for their excellent representation of Lister, and very much deserved this opportunity by being regular attendees of Fitness Club after school on Thursdays.
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!
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.
