Christmas at HMS and Save the Children - £348.78 raised!
On Friday 18 December 2015, staff and pupils pulled out all the wool, sorry stops, and wore their best festive knits to raise money for Save the Children. It was a fantastic day linked with a range of festive activities. Students completed a range of craft tasks during this day making hand wreaths for their classroom door. They drew the outline of their hand onto coloured card and wrote a reflection of their achievements and challenges of 2015. Students also made a collective paper chain incorporating a promise or target for 2016. Individual links joined together as a year group and were then added to our Christmas tree in Fellside Hall. Students were also asked to consider the true meaning of Christmas in their activity.
End of Season Sports Report December 2015
We congratulate all pupils who have represented the school so well this term in a variety of sports. We have had a very busy time at Hexham Middle School and a huge amount of success. We are very proud of all our pupils.
Olivia Milburn, Year 7, ran exceptionally well to win the area cross country competition in her age group. Jemima Stewart, Year 6, and Steven Clark, Year 7, were second in their races. Other successful runners were Josie Cawood, Annie Stevens Year 7 and Olivia Stewart, Year 8, all of whom will represent Tynedale next term.
The Year 7 girls football team won the B team competition in a Key Stage 3 tournament, winning all of their games. The Key Stage 2 girls football competition was postponed due to wet weather but will be played some time next term.
Celebrating Success at Hexham Middle School
We were delighted to be able to celebrate the wide range of achievements of so many of our pupils at our end of term assemblies. Subject teachers nominated pupils for excellent effort and progress in their area this term and form tutors had the very difficult task of selecting their form tutor winner. It is wonderful to see our pupils applauding and encouraging their classmates in such a positive way.
A list of all our fantastic winners will be available shortly.
