TMBS News FEBRUARY 2018

Netball Success

We'd like to say a huge congratulations to our Year 7 Netball team who came 2nd in the county finals on 7th December 2017. The players involved included: Grace Brine; Gracie Rose Walters; Maia Bryce; Maisie Dowler-Morley; Eppie Southern; Harriet Lewis; Isabella Wrightam; Ella Merrie; Sophie Bates and Charlotte Massey

The squad had an extremely successful season having been undefeated in the Hinckley and Bosworth League and beating South Charnwood, they secured a place in the next round. They played Rushey Mead away in their first fixture and won the game convincingly to secure a quarter final clash with Sir Jonathan North at home. The team continued their winning streak and yet again stormed to victory. The semi-finals were held at Welland Park where they also played brilliantly winning 12-8 and thus securing a place in the finals at DeMonfort University. Despite losing to Loughborough High School 10-5 in the final the girls did themselves proud.

A special mention and huge thanks must go to Rebecca Lewis who has helped to umpire and coach the team this season and to all the parents who have transported and supported both on finals nights and at other fixtures. Also many congratulations to Harriet Lewis who has been selected to play and train with the Loughborough Lightening squad. Well done Harriet, what an incredible achievement.

Finally, I would like to say well done to Mrs Donlan for all her hard work and commitment with this wonderful group of players. So looking forward to next year ladies... Go TMBS! Miss Armstrong

Cross Country Champions

Congratulations to our Year 7 girls on taking the title at the Leicestershire Secondary Schools' Cross Country League.

The team, made up of Isabella Wrightham, Gracie-Rose Walters, Olivia Sykes, Isobel Sykes, Ella Merrie and Amelia Cook, completed 4 races at Charnwood College, Long Field Academy, Rutland Water & Brooksby Melton College. All the girls ran exceptionally well and after finishing top of the league were presented with medals and the winners’ trophy.

A special mention goes to Isabella Wrightham who took the silver medal position in the individual league table.

The girls are now looking forward to competing in the County Schools' Relays in January and the County Schools' Championships in February. Well done girls!

Spreading a little Christmas cheer

Although Christmas may now be a distant memory, for the residents at Barons Park Nursing Home in Kirby Muxloe and Bosworth Court Nursing Home in Market Bosworth, TMBS students made sure it was a musical affair. Mr Morrow took some of our music students along on the penultimate day of term to perform Christmas carols, which they then followed with an impromptu performance in Market Bosworth square. It was a resounding success, with residents, staff and students all enjoying the experience.

JAM Music School

January saw the launch of JAM Music School’s new Youth Musical Theatre classes and also adult Rock and Pop Choir classes in the Market Bosworth area.

Sessions are being held at Newbold Verdon Primary School and St Peter’s CE Primary School. Please see JAM’s website for more details: www.jammusicschools.co.uk

Appeal Panel Members Wanted

Have a Mind to be Kind

Over the next few months we would like parents, students and staff to become more aware of kindness; to themselves and towards others. It’s the most powerful gift we have to change someone’s day for the better. Kindness is not just something we do, it defines who we are. Science tells us committing acts of kindness lowers blood pressure and improves our mental well being.

So have a go and thank the people who are kind to you:

  1. Help someone with something simple that just takes time.
  2. Go and visit an old friend.
  3. Take time to spend 20 minutes doing something you love.
  4. Pay someone a compliment.
  5. Smile

You will get back all the kindness you give out, so invest some time in having a mind to be kind.

Vaccinations

The school nurses will be delivering vaccinations on the following dates:

  • 20th February to all of Year 9
  • Year 8 girls - TBC

It is advisable that students having a vaccination eat breakfast before coming to school.

Student Leadership Success

"Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts, it's about one life influencing another"

Leadership is about developing the skills of motivating, influencing and directing people so that they work together to achieve the goals of a team or organisation. It is important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their school life, to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. It also provides an opportunity to learn to identify and display effective communication and interpersonal skills.

Leadership begins with identifying and understanding values. Our values are our fundamental beliefs – those principles we consider to be true and worthwhile. At TMBS we believe all our students are capable of exercising leadership in many different contexts and we work hard to encourage and offer opportunities to allow this to flourish.

Year 7 LORIC Leaders: Last term saw the launch of our new tutor programme, PiXL Edge. This is an exciting opportunity for our students to work together whilst exploring and learning about their own and their classmates’ character strengths. As part of the Year 7’s PiXL Edge programme, they were given the opportunity to put themselves forward to become a LORIC Leader. The role of our new 12 LORIC Leaders is to be a positive role model in the PiXL Edge sessions and to support our transition programme by planning, preparing and delivering a presentation to Year 6 students who will be joining us next year. LORIC Leaders: Reece Bacon, Alex Lapworth, Fin James, Alice Dodd, Lizzy Regan, James Underwood, Megan Richardson, Niamh Thompson, Issac Spencer, Ellen Borrisov, Louise Mellor and Aela Kelly.

Year 9/10 Peer Mentors: A large percentage of our Student Leadership consists of the Peer Mentoring programme. This programme has been running for many years, but is continuously developing to enhance opportunities for students on both sides of the programme. Our 12 Lead Peer Mentors support with the transition from primary to secondary on an academic and personal level. Our previous Peer Mentors were keen to continue supporting students, so we are lucky to have 10 Year 10s working with Year 8 students. They focus on behavioural, social and emotional aspects to support in developing and promoting positive character strengths and values.

Peer Mentor Assistants are new this year as we wanted to develop the programme further and support more students in this way. We appointed 12 Year 9 Assistant Peer Mentors to work alongside the Lead Peer Mentors with their allocated Year 7 tutor group. Lead Peer Mentors (Yr9): Amelia Bowlay-Williams, Fred Milner, Caitlin King, Stelios Varnavas, Jack Passant, Emily Tee, Millie Boulton, Ben Crossley, Alice Bennett, Jack Munn, Lara Wilson and Luca Michalowski.

Peer Mentors (Yr10): William Davie, Holly Wilson, Eve Coope, Olly Welton, Eve Redfern, Mia Wood, Eden MacIsaac, Daniel Connelly, Nadia Yusuf and Corey Alcock.

Assistant Peer Mentors (Yr9): Anaya Damani, Chelsea Hextall, Tessa Dodd, Libby Smith, Joe Brewer, Megan Proffitt, Mae Wilkinson, Alex Moore, Sam Wright, Emma Sinclair, Maddie Palmer and Ruby Walton.

Student Council: Our Student Council offers 14 more students another leadership opportunity within the school. Student Council consists of students from every year group representing the “student’s voice”, meeting regularly with Senior Leadership Team staff to share, discuss and agree on important points for our school community.

  • Chair: Isobel Sumner
  • Vice Chair: Albert Griffin
  • Representatives: Patrick Dodd, Harriett Lewis, Toby Osborne, Amelia Gillies, Elizabeth Norton, Reece Boddington, Fred Walton, Mahlie Biddle, George Suffolk-Heath, Tegan Harvey, Paddy Handford and Eleanor Lapworth.

Student Leaders make our school a better place to be; here at TMBS we believe we have leaders in every field!
