    Over the past few years we have watched Wenlock Lightning Netball Club grow to eight teams. It is great for our students to have a club setting to take on their netball and further develop their skills under the tutelage of a great team of coaches.

    To be competitive from such an early stage is outstanding and involves commitment from everyone. Clubs are not about the best players but bringing together teams of people playing their best!

    In support and recognition of the work the Club does in benefitting young people in our community and, as the only Coubertin school in Great Britain with the motto of "Be the best you can be, through Courtesy, Enterprise and Endeavour" we recently presented the Coubertin Award trophy to Lillie Platt, the Club's Player of the Year for 2017/18.

    EXAM SIGNAGEThe main exam season is now on us, students please note that the no entry signs are not to be ignored. This includes Year 11 students and Sixth Form. Please also remember for those with lockers outside the Library that they will need to take their books for Period 1 & 2 and then Period 4 & 5 during the exam series. Students will not be granted access to lockers between these lessons. Students may access lockers on their own and in silence during exams over break time and, if absolutely necessary, they may go to students services/reception.

    We take the exam signs down as soon as possible after an exam, therefore always presume if the signs are up – exams are still on-going. Thank you for your support.

    CUPS IN VENDING MACHINES

    It has been reported that several students have been forcing cups out of the vending machines near the Leisure Centre. Last time this happened it caused over £300 worth of damage. If any student is found doing this you risk your parents getting charged the cost to repair the machine, plus any other disciplinary measures the school deems fit to impose. Please stop doing this immediately. Thank you.

    Hello Carnegie Book Club goers! The next meeting will be on Monday 21 May during Tutor Period in the library. This is due to exams happening for the next little while.

    The questions will be on the Carnegie books that I’m sure you are reading vigorously (I hope!).

    There will be another special BONUS QUESTION that you will each write an answer for. The one to answer the question correctly will receive a BIG PRIZE! If there is a tie, don’t you worry, Miss Lee will have multiple big prizes, just in case!

    It will not be the same question of ‘Name One Canadian Author’. It will be equally tough so study up on your authors!

    The official Carnegie Quiz at Idsall will be on 18 June. There may be conflicting schedules so please let Miss Lee know if you may not be able to make it. Permission forms will be given out on the Monday 21 May.

    YEAR 9 ENGLISH POETRY – SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY

    Ms Comerford’s Year 9 class had the task of creating a poem in response to the famous poem, She Walks in Beauty. Below are the winning responses!

    She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

    One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o’er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

    And on that cheek, and o’er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!

    Once upon a time,When just a child,I asked my dad one simple question,And in return he smiled.

    I asked him "why do boys laugh,When I ask them to play with me?"Papa said like any man would,This is not how you act, silly.

    I was never to play soldiers,Or let the others know,That there was more to me than meets the eye,Just a pretty face and satin bow.

    But now I realise what he meant,when he said that men won't mind,If you're thick as cardboard,And your thoughts are left behind.

    Because as I have come to be,I realise there is no chance,For any man that wants to marry me,Will only need to take a glance.

    I do walk in beauty,I really think so too,I don’t mean to sound snooty,But I know it’s true!

    I am like starry skies,I am as beautiful as night,I am more pleasing than sunrise,I know it’s right.

    My heart is stormless,My mind is at peace,Everything I do is harmless,That won’t ever cease.

    Now I have a question for you;Do you really think it’s true?I don’t want to be lied to,Is this your real view?

    He walks in grace, like the sunIt’s shining beauty and elegance;A crystal stare of awe,Strong and brave but never arrogant;But it is to my greatest and deep despair,To deny his true love and yearning;But to a different man, my fire is burning,Laden of sorrow but thoughtful I will be;Try not act of anger,I am in love with your brother, you see!

    He walks in foolishness,The hypocrite lying to the world,A lie of love, for nature, he says,Romanticism, I think not.

    He says he detests the world,That his kind has wrought for him,By trampling underfoot,The trees, the leaves the branches.

    […]

    He wears the same clothes,Clothes with a backstory of death and pain,He travels the same road,Roads which are forced out of the natural world

    He takes the same carriages,Putting majestic horses to gruelling work,He eats the same meat, The lost souls of my friends and family.

    How can he still buy products,Products which support slaveryProducts which support factories,Factories which support my demise?

    Does the hypocrite deserve my love,If he truly wants to poison,Burn, enslave, destroy, butcher,Trample, crush, and enforce man’s law,On my very essence of being?

    Once upon a time,When just a child,I asked my dad one simple question,And in return he smiled.

    I asked him "why do boys laugh,When I ask them to play with me?"Papa said like any man would,This is not how you act, silly.

    I was never to play soldiers,Or let the others know,That there was more to me than meets the eye,Just a pretty face and satin bow.

    But now I realise what he meant,when he said that men won't mind,If you're thick as cardboard,And your thoughts are left behind.

    Because as I have come to be,I realise there is no chance,For any man that wants to marry me,Will only need to take a glance.
