Bunbury Cricket Club

June 28th, 2012

Earlier in the year Dr. David English CBE, MBE, OSCA, The Bunbury Founder and Vice President of the English Schools’ Cricket Association visited  Central Foundation boys’ School.

Over the years, David English’s English Schools Cricket Association has helped discover and nurture many talented cricketers.

On behalf of this association, our School Cricket Team was delighted to receive a box filled with new cricket apparel  from full whites and nets to bats, pads and balls.

The Cricket Team have since been honing their skills, training and preparing for games throughout the summer term.

Perhaps this is why it has come as no surprise that there has been victory all round for the Cricket Teams at Central Foundation.

This month the Under 14s beat Stoke Newington scoring 126-6 – 67-5. Man of the match was clearly Abdi Buwe for taking 2 wickets with a run rate of 1.5 per over.

In addition, the Year 10 Team beat Mossbourne scoring 130-4 – 38 all out. Mateen Abbas  took 4 wickets with a run rate of 2 per over.

Sufian Miah, Year 9 Scored 54 not out for the Under 14s and scored 30 not out for the Under 15ss, leading them to yet another fantastic win.

“When we opened the box of cricket kit we were all overwhelmed. We are looking forward to wearing the full whites and looking like a proper Cricket Team.”

From a letter to Dr. English from Sufian Miah, Year 9

Did you know that Britain has one of the lowest rates of social mobility in the world? With this in mind, Margaret McCabe, a former commercial barrister set up Debate Mate, a charity which ensures that students can both realise and fulfil their true potential through debating. There is no doubt that peer-led debating promotes:

  • Communication skills
  • Teamwork skills
  • Higher-order thinking skills
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Academic achievement
  • Engagement with social issues

And there was clearly no shortage of these skills from the Central Foundation Boys’ School Debating Team as they battled it out to become one of the top eight schools in the country this year. Ranked 2nd, the boys were invited to participate in the Artemis Urban Debate League Final at Simons and Simons law firm and the House of Lords.

The team, Andrie Miller, Andrew Miller, Omar Aadan, George Benson, Derek Nightingale and Kaan Yuksel were given the motion “This house believes tabloids do more harm than good” and were asked to act as the opposition.

After just a few minutes to prepare their case the speakers were called to the stand. Those chairing the competition commended the boys on their knowledge of public affairs, eloquent style and fast-thinking.

The team focused on notions surrounding freedom of speech, relevant case studies and the importance of communicating information to the masses. Despite a winning performance, the boys just missed out from reaching the final debate but after raising a wide range of relevant issues in such a dynamic way the team can only be commended for impressing a team of experienced lawyers and chairs.

CitySafe Campaign

June 28th, 2012

CitySafe is a strategic, community-focused effort led by young citizens to tackle crime and the fear of violent crime. The campaign is designed to improve the relationships between the police, business communities and young people from different schools.

Teams of trained CitySafe Champions sustain local CitySafe Zones by building strong relationships among their peers, the police and neighbourhood organisations. Local businesses and organisations pledge 100% reporting of crime and anti-social behaviour and offer their premises as CitySafe Havens—places of safety for young people in immediate danger.

CirtySafe Action Teams also work to organise events where local police participate in real dialogue with local young people. During neighbourhood walks, young people, adults from the local community and police officers speak with shopkeepers and retailers about community safety.

On the 27th of June groups of boys at Central Foundation participated in a local neighbourhood walk. With local maps, badges and pens in tow the students worked in teams in order to each visit different shops. The goal; to forge and strengthen public relationships within the team, to develop leaders and to map the CitySafe Zone and the location of shops. Many shops were happy to hear about the initiative and local police patrolling the area even stopped what they were doing to find out more about the scheme.

A School For Superheroes

June 28th, 2012

In March 2012 Central Foundation Boys’ School invited some Year 5 students to work with the award-winning children’s author, Malaika Rose Stanley. Children from St Luke’s Primary School, Randal Cremer Primary School and Clerkenwell Parochial C of E Primary School joined in with some students from Year 8 to share ideas about superheroes. They worked together on a story about a school for such heroes and produced an exciting collaboration, the pupils even designed their superheroes and these artistic logos and figurines make up the cover of the publication.
