Jeans for Genes Day Success

By Josh Porter

Last Friday 23rd September saw the first charitable event this term at NBH. We were showing our support for a national initiative to raise funds for children living with genetic disorders. Students got involved in Jeans for Genes day by wearing jeans with their school uniform and donating a pound. All funds we raised will go to Genetics Disorders UK. Even the teachers got involved and wore jeans to show support. Overall the day was a huge success and while we wait for the final amount that we raised to be reveled I’m sure that it will be well appreciated by those who receive it.

Thank you to all NBH staff and students who made donations on the day. A special thank you must also go to Roman Newland and Sebastian Van Gorp in Year 8 as it was their idea for the school to play a part in this charitable event.

 

Enrichment has begun at NBH!

By Nicolas Gilly

Enrichment kick started last week and thanks to the inspiring assembly by the teachers we were very eager to try the diverse range of activities on offer.  Some new Enrichments this year include the Sports Report, Hampstead History Walks and Chinese Studies. With so much choice it was difficult to narrow down our top 6.

Next week stay tuned for an in-depth report on an exciting Enrichment. It might be yours!

 

Inter- Form Quiz

Competition is heating up as we get closer to naming the Inter-Form Quiz champions. This week saw most forms getting 10/10, well done!  But overall after 3 weeks of Quizzes 7 Pearce, 8 Miolli and 9 September lead in KS3 with 10 Kidd and 10 Leach in a tie for top spot in Year 10 and 11 Williams well ahead in Year 11. Let’s see if there is a change to the leaders after next weeks quiz.

Welcome to NBH Year 7’s

By Jazzy Nicoletti

A little mention to the Year 7’s who seem to have settled in to the NBH community incredibly well.  Their enthusiastic approach to secondary school life has been noticed by Prefects and Teachers. Well done to all Year 7’s for getting off to an amazing start!

As 7 Bencheikh’s Form Rep I am aware that this week the Year 7’s are gearing up for their muddy adventures at Hindleap Warren. With only a week and a half to go I hope they are looking forward to the teambuilding, activities and highly anticipated Talent Show. I know that Dua, Oscar and Louis are looking forward to visiting for the day and getting to try out some of the outdoor pursuits.

 

European Day of Languages

On Monday we celebrated European Day of Languages here at NBH. Mrs Cesarato delivered an inspiring assembly to KS4 explaining the importance and brilliance of languages and KS3 will have an opportunity to hear this on Friday. Christine and the catering staff prepared a menu of diverse European delicacies and we tried Polish beetroot soup, Spanish tortilla wraps and delicious Danish apple and cinnamon cake. Also don’t forget to check out the Languages competition at reception for the chance to win House Points.

Fun Fact:
Did you know that at least half the world’s population is bilingual or plurilingual? i.e. they speak two or more languages.
