World War 1 Day
Friday 11th July, 75 Hanson Year 7 students were invited to sing and perform
drama at Undercliffe World War 1 Commemoration Day. We walked up to the
cemetery in the morning and did two performances to various audiences attending
the open day. We also got to watch a drama performance about World War 1 and
look at the war graves of soldiers who had attended Hanson School. It was a
spectacular day and the sun shone beautifully. It helped us remember those
people who have given their lives not just in World War 1 but in all conflicts
and the impact that war has on everybody, not just the soldiers.
for the 2nd year running
On 9th July we took
19 athletes to the SPT Academy Games in Doncaster. Many of our students achieved
personal bests. Luke and Dylan won their triple jump events, Max won the
shot put and Ayesha won the girls speed bounce. The top performance of the
day though came in the final event when our U16s boys relay team consisting of
Luke, Callum, Max and Maxx won the event by 30 metres!! The whole team were
rewarded for their fantastic achievements over this last year by being voted for
the fair play award by all the other teams for the second year running.
