Celebrating our students’ achievements is one of the most important, and one of the most rewarding, things we do at Kingsmeadow. Our Academic Award Evening, held on 16th November, is the biggest and most exciting of our wide range of celebration events and activities. It celebrates the efforts, resilience and achievements of our students for the whole preceding year and is a great opportunity for us to publicly recognise the hard work that our students put into their studies at Kingsmeadow.
The hall was beautifully presented, with table decorations and (almost) festive lighting. A buffet and refreshments welcomed our guests which included students, their families, school staff, governors and the Worshipful Mayor of Gateshead, councillor Pauline Dillon. A stage and lighting set the tone for a very special, memorable occasion for the forty four students who were receiving their awards.
Fantastic result from the year 7 girls squad, who won 1-0 in the year 7 cup competition. The result was made even better with the girls only playing with 8 players in a 9 a side game. First half goal from Jodie Clarke and some great saves late on from Jenny Blench was enough for the win. Each player showed a great work ethic and put in a superb performance.
Special mention for Aimee Temple who transferred her excellent attitude during training into the game. Well done girls!
This is a busy week for the year 7 boys squads. Our first team travel to North Tyneside to play John Spence Community High School in the 4th round of the nationals, while our development squad play Valley Gardens Middle School, from Whitley Bay.
Also, six of our academy boys with travel to Thorp Academy to take part in the Gateshead Schools Football Association futsal competition.
Good luck to all our squads and watch out for more match reports.
