Tree Planting in Loxford Park

On Monday the 13th November, a group of  year 7 and year 12 students went to Loxford Park to help plant maple trees to support the charity ‘Trees for Cities’.   Students worked together to help dig up the soil, plant the trees and create a habitable environment for the tree to grow. Our students worked really hard  and showed great team spirit , they are so proud of what they have achieved they decided to name the trees Mavis, Matilda and Mable.  Our students are really looking forward to being able to see their trees grow over the coming years.  Tree planting will be happening throughout the months of November and December at Loxford Park and welcome the local residents to come along and help.  This weekend local residents are invited to come along to help plant tress under the supervision of a local charity called “Trees for Cities”.  They will also be providing some snacks to keep you going and  expert instruction on how to plant the trees.  The aim is to  plant many trees to improve the landscape of the park along with Redbridge as a whole.  So if you fancy having a go, why not pop along to Loxford Park at the weekend.

Year 7 Girls Netball Tournament

On Thursday 16th November 9 Year 7 netball players competed in the Redbridge Borough Tournament. This was the girls first game of the year and playing as a new cohort, and with great teamwork and encouragement from each other, they came 1st, winning the overall tournament.

The girls started the tournament with a 1-1 draw against Oaks Park A Team however soon came into their stride playing their second match against Buxton where they won 2-0. They continued their winning streak onto their third match against Park School which finished with a 4-1 win. At this point the girls had fire in their bellies, hoping for a third and final win against Oaks Park B Team. When the whistle blew on the 10th minute the girls were up by a fantastic 5 goals.

Overall, an outstanding first tournament for this group of girls. They walked away with their heads held high, in mighty spirits and a first place medal around their necks. Well done girls, very proud of you all.
