Amazing football success – by Kai

Amazing football success – by Kai

I was very lucky and so excited to have been chosen by Chelsea to go and play for them in the international tour over three days in three different countries. So on Thursday, 9 February, I flew to Basel in Switzerland. I played in 2 tournaments one in Germany and one in France. It was 16 teams on Saturday and 20 teams on Sunday, we also had some friendlies in Basel on the Friday.  We played against some very good teams, like Barcelona, Dortmund,  Juventus and  Leverkusen . On Saturday, Chelsea played really well we got through to the last stages but we were beaten by Barcelona. Barcelona won the tournament. After Barcelona got their trophy they started calling out people for the dream team, these were the players that were outstanding during the tournament.  I was picked for the goalkeeper of the tournament for the dream team.  I was so amazed when they called my name out and I was so shocked and so happy but my dad made me cry because he was crying. My whole team came to me and shook my hand and everyone congratulated me. On Sunday we really look forward to playing again, this time on grass which we are better at. My team were on fire and we didn’t let any goals in the whole day. We got through to the semifinals but we only drew nil nil so we had to go to penalties and we just lost because they do penalties really differently in France. It was a great weekend and I really loved the experience. I’m still really surprised...
Fair Field smashes solar goal and installs panels

Fair Field smashes solar goal and installs panels

Our  school is educating students with renewable energy Pupils at Fair Field will now be able to learn about clean energy in an entirely new way thanks to their fundraising success to install solar panels on their school roof. A dedicated team of staff, parents and pupils at Fair Field worked together in a race against time to meet their funding target and install the solar panels before the government-imposed deadline of September 2016. But they did it. In fact they exceeded their £15,000 target and managed to bring in an amazing £20,000 in just nine months. The panels are set to earn the school thousands of pounds a year thanks to energy savings and the Feed in Tariff, which is guaranteed for 20 years. The panels will also offset tons of carbon and reduce the school’s eco footprint. Every penny saved by the solar panels will now be ploughed back into the school to buy extra resources for the students. The parent team raised the funds through a variety of events, including a big summer fair, sponsored bike ride, a jazz music event, as well as a “5 in 5 run” around the village. They were also supported by a number of businesses, including Giant Bikes, the Three Horseshoes pub and Watling St Beer. They also received huge levels of support from 10:10, the environmental charity which held their hand throughout. “It’s a great relief to have raised the money and have the panels installed just in time. A massive thank you to all who contributed, but especially to the charity 10:10 for their constant energy and support.”...
