HATton Good News

Duke of Edingburgh bronze Practice EXpedition

Last Saturday weekend saw 5 teams of Year 10 students arrive at Sywell Country Park looking a bit apprehensive and with parents worrying about the size and weight of their packs.

With the clouds parting and the sun shining, the intrepid young people headed to Grendon for an overnight stop and then onto Podington after a total walk of some 26-30 Km.

The trip was only possible due to the tremendous support and enthusiasm of Mr Shackleton, Mrs Blake, Mr Kneeshaw, Mr Jeffs, Miss Berrill and Miss Stevenson and last but not least Mr Gibbs. These dedicated and inspirational people, some on their own first DofE event, led the teams under the watchful eye of 3 instructors from our activity provider First 4 4 Adventure. I am in awe of their dedication.

Please congratulate the following students  if you get chance.

Team 1 - Aidan Youngman/Aliya Hussain/Erin Saddington/Jiyon Thomas/Natasha Trivedi/Neha Dholakia/Harry Ellis

Team 2 - Edward Swain/Bryn Swain/Sanjay Patel/Morgan Brown/Will Downer

Team 3 - Matthew Antone/Dhruti Mendon/Kireran Patel/Neeraj Patel/Gidloria Allotey/Shiv Dhanji/Sara Desai

Team 4 - Rebecca Molloy/Hannah Burwell/Lacey Pulley/Kinga Stusii/Ushika Thanki

Team 5 - Sean Green/Callista Quadling/Hayden West/Katie Gower/Christopher Price

This annual event was held on Friday 30th June 2017 in our school hall and we had thirteen teams of four students participating from five schools across the county.  The theme this year was Roald Dahl to coincide with his 100th anniversary last September.  There were six categories – Giants, GFC (giraffe, fox & crocodile), Witches, Chocolate, Book Awards & Roald Dahl. 

Sir Christopher Hatton Academy had two teams entered – Chocolate Girls (Ridhi Khakhar, Piya Patel, Prathna Vyas & Julia Wojcik) who came a very respectable 7th place & team Matilda’s Bookworms (Lucie Arthurs, Christian Ihejirika, Harry Sexton & Thomas Wiggs) came an amazing 2nd place.  Well done to everyone who participated & all the students who helped.
