Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

Maisie Strange is a year 11 student who works closely with Birmingham Support Group, helping homeless people within the Birmingham area. Maisie volunteers at weekends and over holiday periods going around distributing products and serving food in the shelters. We are keen to spread the word that homelessness isn’t always a life choice, we have many ex-service men and women and professionals that find themselves in this situation.

We are running a Christmas Shoe Box Appeal and are kindly asking that each tutor group within the school provides at least one filled box.

We would be very grateful if any of our families and the wider community would like to take part in this campaign, any shoe boxes that you’d like to fill would be most welcome!

Things to include:
· Toiletries (nothing sharp)

· Food (biscuits, crisps, sweets, chocolates, etc.)

· Scarfs, gloves, boxers, socks, blankets

· Hand sanitizer, baby wipes

Many thanks for your support in helping us to share some Christmas spirit. Let’s see how many filled shoes boxes we can provide.

Bad Luck Strikes Twice for Hart

The Y10 boys travelled to Kingsmead in search of their second league victory. The opening exchanges were close as both teams looked to assert their dominance. However, the home team soon started to cause problems for the Hart School defence and the pressure soon proved too much to cope with.

A swift move down the left wing enabled their winger to cross the ball to their striker who instantly shot at goal. Lewis Redford managed to parry the shot but the rebound was converted to give Kingsmead the lead.

The boys soon got back into the game and began creating chances of their own thanks to good work from Jack Dukes, Ike Dinning and Jack Smith. Unfortunately they were unable to convert these chances.

The second half followed much the same pattern with some resolute defending from captain Harry King preventing Kinsgmead extending their lead. Jack Dukes then had a golden opportunity to level the match but could not hit the target with his shot. Kingsmead then launched another attack down the wing and the ball found its way into the box and landed fortuitously at the feet of their striker. He swivelled on the ball and sot low into the corner and past the despairing dive of the Hart School keeper.

The final score line did not do justice to the level of performance given by the Hart School team.

Final Score: Kingsmead 2 – 0 The Hart school.

Bad luck lads!

Hart Girls Key Stage 3 football team face tough opponents

The Hart Girls football team played their first cup match last night against Oldfields School. They started off really well having a couple of attempts on goal. The defence played really well, closing down players fast and clearing the ball.

Hannah Richardson had a great game as goal keeper keeping out at least 9 attempts on goal in the first half. They came up against one really strong striker who managed to weave her way into the box on a number of occasions.

Eventually she scored to make it 1-0 to Oldfields. They also had a number of crosses, and in the second half and unfortunately we an own goal from one of the crosses in the last few minutes of the match. Miss Dix was extremely proud of the girls who ran their socks off throughout the game in both attack and defence.

Well done to all players!

Grace Rogers, Wren Crozier, Eliesha Dutton, Lucy Vincent, Ellie Harvey, Erica Oumba, Larner Inns, Annie Williams, Hannah Richardson

French Exchange 2017

A message from Mme. Darcy-Barron:

I went on a tour to see all the work placements this morning. I am so proud of our students who are receiving such glowing reports from their new colleagues.
Katie Hodson started her 2nd placement today with a physiotherapist. She will not only get the opportunity to see patients being treated but she will also get to visit an old people’s home on Friday afternoon.

The clients and staff at the hairdressers were particularly complimentary of Jodie Averis saying that she was so warm, welcoming, graceful and helpful.

The other younger students were in lessons, they helped out in Design lessons and this afternoon they had the afternoon off, whilst Lauren Haines (Y11) took part in a Gospel choir.

Everyone is having a fabulous time!

French Exchange 2017

Another glorious day of sunshine in France!

Our Work Experience students

Everyone started their placements today – they were a little apprehensive in the morning, but by lunch time it was smiles all 'round and the students impressed at themselves for how much French they are able to speak with clients and new colleagues.
Abbie Holloway is at a bakery; Emma Vincent is at a jewellers
and Katie Hodson finished her nursery placement today and starts a new placement with a Physiotherapist tomorrow.
Leah Bilson started at a primary school yesterday; Jodie Averis is at a hairdressers, but also spent the afternoon at a clothes shop and Ellie Holloway and Harry Murdoch had another successful and interesting day at the Town Hall.

Other exchange students

We had a day fabulous day of culture today, visiting the director of a big local annual event which commemorates the century of the 1st World War.
The gentleman, a volunteer himself, explained about the 600+ volunteers that help put this show together and how it is all about light and sound. The performance is in August at the nearby Chateau, just outside the town of La Souterraine. He talked us through the concept of the show as well as the research and the design of the costumes. He then took us around the workshop and showed us the costumes being made, which were really interesting.
In the afternoon, without their exchange partners, the students and Mme. Darcy - Barron walked from La Souterraine up to the remains of the Chateau, and sat in the amphitheatre which has been built purposefully for the now famous shows that we heard about in the morning. We finished the day off with a well deserved ice-cream and trip to the supermarket.

Year 10 Netball

Last night the Hart School hosted the Year 10 County Netball tournament at Upper school, and over 13 teams turned up to compete.
The level of competition this year was very high as most of the girls at this age start to play for netball clubs on a regular basis.

The Hart girls started their first match against King Edward Lichfield A who are tough team to beat and have consistently been at the top of the league. Unfortunately we lost against them 9-0. Then we went on to play Great Wyrley high school beating them 4-0 with fantastic shooting from our GS & GA. Our 3rd was against Norton Canes where we lost 2-0. 4th we played Cannock Chase high school beating them 2-0 with the girls in defence playing really well. Finally we made a 1-1 draw with Staffs University academy giving us 7 points overall and finishing in 3rd place.

The girls were excellent as a team for their first set of matches this year. They have 5 league matches to play between now and March and we wish them all the best!

French Exchange 2017

Following a glorious day yesterday where the students spent the day with their Exchange partners and families, this morning it was an early start at school.

For some (Y11 and Y12) it was their first time in the school so they were getting used to their surroundings; students in jeans, a canteen with a salad bar and lots of baguette bread, a 2 lunch break and a long school day.

3 of the Y13 students started their work experience today. Katie Hodson is working in a primary school for the first part of the week and Harry Murdoch and Ellie Holloway are at the Town Hall. They even got to meet the mayor this morning. The other students start their placements tomorrow.

This evening we all got together with the host families for a pool supper. It was an opportunity for the Headteacher and Deputy Head to greet the students and their families, it was a lovely evening!

Au revoir, more to follow!
