Well done to the 24 Year 7 Students who completed the 'Bikeability Cycle Road Training' course Level 1 & 2 in four cycling sessions from Monday through to Thursday and the final group of 17 students reaching the Level 3 course on Friday. The courses covered control skills to be safe to cycle on roads, initially in the playground, actual cycling on quiet roads with some traffic, and leading on to knowledge of the road structure and how to navigate roads and traffic in a safe manner.

The Year 7/8 Cricket Team performed extremely well reaching yet another Brent Final, having battled through the group stages with skill and determination.  It was a closely fought battle with Claremont coming out on top, having chipped away at an excellent 104 runs posted by JFS. There were some standout performances, including a brilliant batting performance from Daniel W, who posted 45 runs, including some dazzling fours and sixes and excellent bowling from Samuel F, whose double wicket maiden gave JFS a surge of confidence towards the end of the game.

JFS was very well represented recently at the ORT JUMP Graduation ceremony at the JW3 with Samantha Simmons of the BBC and Sky news as the special guest. In fact we were the largest group of all the secondary schools.  Ellie Lachs (Head Girl) made a wonderful speech about her experience of the programme and David Launer won one of the four prizes for his work with his medicine mentor. David also won the Cambridge University writing prize last week.

Rabbi Karp and Miss Borkin led a talented group of 20 Year 7 students to King David School, Manchester to take part in an annual Jewish knowledge inter-school competition. These students gave up two lunchtimes every week over the course of this term to attend preparatory sessions with Jewish Studies teachers as well as spending extra time at any opportunity to cram for the competition.
