Our Library Reading Challenger, Krystinalib01

Krystina, Deal Year 9, has successfully completed her Reading Challenge for ten books and is now working towards her twenty book challenge.

The Library Reading Challenge has been running for several years and has encouraged our pupils to “read for pleasure”. After reading each book the pupils talk to the Librarian about the storyline, characters, genre, what they liked or disliked about their book choices. Pupils receive vivos, small prizes and certificates along the way.

Year 7 and Year 8 pupils are taking part in the new Reading Challenge Travel Log which takes them on a reading journey. They are given the opportunity during Form Time to “read for pleasure” and complete their logs. Vivos, certificates and prizes are awarded to all pupils on their travels.

Good Luck to everyone.

Kent Police Educate and Show Dogs' ProwessOne dog, seen holding his training ball.

On Tuesday as part of the school’s drugs education programme Kent Police gave a series of lectures to Key Stage 3 and 4 students about the criminal implications of using illegal drugs. Along with a talk by police officers there was also a demonstration of how the police use sniffer dogs to detect drugs. Later on, the officers gave a talk about the dangers of "legal highs" and shocked everyone with tragic stories of lives cut short.

One fact that surprised many, was that despite the complexities of the training program, the reward for hard work is still a tennis ball and a game of fetch! Pictured to the right is one of the show dogs brought in, happy with his reward!

The sessions were very enjoyable and appreciated by the students, who eagerly asked questions about all facets of police dog work and training.

U16 Boys vs QE Favershamfootball02

The boys put in an outstanding performance in the Kent Cup tonight. Up against tough opposition, the boys started brightly and were unlucky to go a goal down against the run of play to a scrappy long throw. A well created second goal saw us go two down not long afterwards. After physically dominating in midfield through Luke Howe and Chaz Brahma, two chances were created and it took good saves from the opposition goal keeper to keep EHS at bay.

Year 9 Footballfootball01

The lads had a tough first round draw in the Kent Cup away at St Anselms in Canterbury. It was clear immediately that it would be hard to score against the Arsenal youth keeper they had after several saves from close range. Captain Keelan Powell was a rock in defence and earned his captains armband. Kaine McGrath was physically in the centre of midfield with countless strong challenges.
