Autumn End of Term 2017 - Update
As always, Adler House have shown themselves to be committed, enthusiastic, kind and supportive students resulting in some brilliant inter-house successes e.g. 2nd in Tug of War, 1st in Karaoke, 1st in football and 2nd in the quiz. Also, their participation in extra activities has seen Adler students have some fantastic individual successes and experiences. Some students who must be noted are: Oakley Winters- O’Brien (A7LTB) for being part of the junior cross country boys’ team that reached the national final; Esme Wynn (A7LTB) for being the first Year 7 to complete an Edge activity; Ellie Wellman (A11NS) for taking part in the ‘Liberating Art’ project filmed by BBC; Jezebel Dilke, Maisie Little and Jolene Johnson (all A8JS) for their ‘Bare Necessities’ Karaoke performance; and Ellie- Mai Ford (A7SAB) for her generous contribution to Hinomaru’s food bank collection.
We already have 26 students with over 100 house points – a fantastic effort for the first term. As always, I am incredibly proud of every student in Adler House.
Autumn Half Term 2017 - Update
Well, we are already into the 2nd half term - before we know it we will be at Christmas and the New Year and nearly half the year will have flown by!
Our two year 7 tutor groups, A7SAB and A7LTB, have done a superb job of settling in and throwing themselves into life at SJCA. They were excellent ambassadors of the school at Hooke Court and threw themselves into every activity with enthusiasm. We had lots of Adler entries in the Hooke Talent contest, and it appears we now have an in-house magician in the shape of Nova, to add to our every expanding repertoire of skills within the House.
This term has seen Adler coming 2nd in Tug of War and joint first in Inter- House Karaoke. Tug of War, was as always, a loud and highly competitive event. We performed well across each year group and it came down to a tie breaking tug. Unfortunately, Adler just didn't quite have the reserve strength to win overall. Our winning Karaoke team came from A8JS and was Maisie Little, Jolene Johnson and Jezebel Dilke performing the Bare Necessities, complete with costume. It was very entertaining! The trio of girls are also taking part in the Christmas Cracker Concert- I urge to go and watch and be thoroughly entertained.
Thank you to all Adler students and staff for your continued hard work and commitment and good luck Year 11 in your mocks.
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome back Adler, and an especially warm welcome all the new students and new staff joining Adler. We are the lucky house this year and have two year 7 tutor groups; A7SAB and A7LTB. We also welcome all the new staff joining Adler house and picking up tutor groups: Miss Baggaley, Mrs Burgess, Miss Stone and Mrs Schantz. We had a brilliant year last year with many inter- house success and many individual success; it was a joy to see so many Adler students receiving awards at prizegiving. We didn't quite manage to win the House Cup, but our 2nd place shows our determination and resilience to improve from previous years. Maybe this year is our year? I think so! I want to wish everyone in Adler all the very best for the year and I encourage you all to get involved with as much as possible.
Spring 2017 End of Term News
Adler -Miss Hull What a Spring term it has been. It has been a pleasure to watch Adler house and all the students within it go from strength to strength and compete in so many activities. Firstly, inter-house competitions. This term has seen Adler WIN inter-house football and come 2nd in the inter-house Human Rights Day. As well as inter-house competitions students have been busy with the Edge and other extra- curricular activities. Our very own House Captain, Jade Farrington, has completed the Graduate level of the Edge by cutting her hair short to a very stylish bob and donating her hair to charity. January and February saw Rotary Public Speaking competitions happening and out of the nine Colfox students involved across the 2 team, five of the students were Adler students; as House Co-ordinator is it incredibly uplifting to see so many Adler students taking part, trying new things and pushing themselves beyond their comfort zones. I would like to wish all Adler students and staff a very restful and enjoyable holiday. And to Year 11, work and revise hard but make sure you allow yourself sometime to enjoy the holidays as well.
