  • Greenhouse Team Tennis Mid-Season Update

    Greenhouse Team Tennis Mid-Season Update
    13th May 2014

    We’re now halfway through the Team Tennis season, and while results have been a mixed bag, the teams have had the privilege of visiting some amazing private schools and Tennis clubs to play their matches. Highlights of the season so far: • Year 10 boys playing their away match vs Coopers Coborn at Virgin Active Clearview in Brentwood, Essex and enjoying post-match (soft) drinks on the patio area overlooking the outdoor pool. • Strawberries and Cream, and afternoon tea at Bancrofts School in Ilford. • Carlos Torres and Joy Hoque winning their doubles match against Bancrofts, with Carlos being a very late call up to the team due a last minute drop out. • Sydney Merritt becoming the first girl at Cumberland to win a singles match in Team Tennis, beating her opponent from Brentwood School 6-4 • The year 8 girls team of Vilija Burbuleviciute, Teresa Da Silva, Sydney Merritt and Hazel Rahman winning their first ever match 12-0 against St. Pauls Way. • Tinashe Balayi and Elonas Voliekevicius coming back from 4-1 down to win their doubles match 6-4 vs St. Pauls Way year 10 boys team. Results to date: 24th April – Year 10 Boys Lost 12-0 to Coopers Coborn 29th April – Year 10 Girls Lost 12-0 to Bancrofts Year 8 Girls Lost 12-0 to Bancrofts Year 8 Boys Lost 10-2 to Bancrofts 30th April - Year 10 Girls Lost 12-0 to Brentwood School Year 8 Girls Lost 10-2 to Brentwood School 7th May - Year 10 Boys Won 10-2 vs. St. Pauls Way Year 8 Girls Won 12-0 vs. St. Pauls Way Those two wins versus St. Pauls Way took Cumberland 4-0 up in the Greenhouse Tennis Cup, which will almost certainly be enough to ensure we win the trophy this year. The teams: Year 10 Boys: Elonas Voliekevicius, Tinashe Balayi, Briti Haliti, Georgie Foster Year 10 Girls: Bidisha Sarker, Gabrielle Ngoo, Chelsea Safo, Molly Newson Year 8 Boys: Abdi Hassan, Isswell Owusu, Carlos Torres, Joy Hoque Year 8 Girls: Vilija Burbuleviciute, Teresa Da Silva, Sydney Merritt, Hazel Rahman, Emily Hill.

  • Congratulations to Abdi Hassan Year 8

    Congratulations to Abdi Hassan Year 8
    30th April 2014

    During the Easter Holidays, Abdi Hassan from Year 8 took part in an LTA Grade 5 Tennis Tournament at Shooters Hill. I am thrilled to say that he won the tournament, winning four matches on the day. As a result of his wins, his rating will improve from 10.1 to 9.2 (ratings are the LTA’s guide to players ability, with the lower the rating, the better the player. For comparison, Andy Murray is a 1.1). Well done Abdi! Mr Kruse Greenhouse Tennis Coach Read More

  • Imperial War Museum- Day 4 & 5

    Imperial War Museum- Day 4 & 5
    25th April 2014

    Twenty four Year 8 pupils visited the Imperial War Museum on Monday 7th April and Tuesday 8th April in the Easter holidays. They showed full commitment to the New Perspectives project they have been involved with by attending the final two days of the five day project, giving up the first two days of their Easter holidays. On these final two days of the project the Year 8 pupils worked with professional animators from Chocolate Films to create their short animation films based on archival research they'd conducted with the help of museum staff earlier on in the project. They spent the two days filming and editing their animations, demonstrating and developing a multitude of skills including effective communication, teamwork and resilience. They worked from their storyboards they had created during day 3 of the project and overcame a number of unexpected hurdles that arose during the course of the two days - including one group having to deal with plasticine which was too tough to mould. They resolved this issue by showing great initiative and heating up the plasticine using a portable radiator! The short animation films they have created from scratch, will be premièred at Cumberland School later on in the summer term - at an event to which parents, museum staff and fellow pupils will be invited. News of the premier will be shared on the school website in the future - so watch this space! The History department are very proud of the commitment and effort shown by the twenty-four Year 8 pupils through their participation in this project and are pleased that Cumberland School pupils have been given another opportunity to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
