  • Jonathan Bennett elected Young Mayor of Newham 2013

    Jonathan Bennett elected Young Mayor of Newham 2013
    25th October 2013

    Jonathan Bennett, a pupil at Cumberland School, is our newly elected Young Mayor of Newham, having received 1,320 votes. As the seventh democratically elected Young Mayor of Newham, Jonathan aims to help young people access worthwhile opportunities in the borough and ensure young people can generate their own personal income. The main role of the Young Mayor is to represent Newham’s young people, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, class or sexuality, and promote their interests to the council, businesses, the wider community and other public service providers such as the NHS. He will meet regularly with the Mayor, councillors and council officers. He is the visible face of Newham’s young people, attending civic events, consultations and events outside the borough, meeting people and giving speeches. “Everyone at Cumberland School is incredibly proud of Jonathan and will fully support him in his endeavour to continue the inspirational work of Rebekah Dike, Newham Young Mayor last year. Jonathan will be working alongside Adam Khaliq, Deputy Young Mayor from Langdon School and I’m sure that together they will represent the voice of the young people in Newham. Both of them have the opportunity to change lives and to continue to build on the legacy and promises of the London 2012 Games. Well done to you both and to all the other candidates for wanting to make a difference.” Ms Doyle, Assistant Headteacher, Cumberland School. Read More

  • Greenhouse Tennis Programme

    Greenhouse Tennis Programme
    24th October 2013

    Last Monday & Tuesday, whilst their classmates were enjoying a long weekend, twelve students from the Greenhouse Tennis Programme took part in two visits designed to give them a better understanding of Tennis in the wider world. On Monday, Vilija, Isswell, Sydney, Ilaman and Abdi from year 8, and Joy & Jakub from year 7 took part in an Elite Athlete Day at Redbridge Sports Centre. In the morning they spent two hours on court with Mark Hayden, the LTA’s Talent ID Coach for Essex Kent & Sussex. Mark put them through their paces with the sort of high intensity drills that players can expect to face on the 12 & Under National Performance Camps. After lunch, they then spent an hour with a professional fitness trainer who ran them through a Strength & Conditioning session. The following day, Vilija, Isswell, Abdi, Ilaman and Sydney were joined by Elonas, Tinashe, Georgie and Briti from year 9 on a tour of Wimbledon and a visit to the Wimbledon Museum. Taking in such legendary venues as Centre Court, No.1 Court, Henman Hill and the Media Centre, they were given an in depth insight behind the scenes at the greatest Tennis Tournament in the world, thanks to Patrick from the All England Club’s Education Dept. They also got a glimpse of the coveted Wimbledon Mens and Ladies Trophies. One little nugget that I’d like to share with you. In May each year, a man goes to Wimbledon with a metre square “see through chess board”. He then proceeds to count every blade of grass on all of the 18 Championship courts. That’s 54 million blades of grass PER COURT!!! And if there isn’t enough grass, the court has to be reseeded… Mr Kruse Tennis Coach Read More
