The House Play Competition 2014 took place on Friday 13th June – and because of this brilliant opportunity, the themes of the plays were developed from the idea of ‘Friday 13th’ and everything that this suggests. Continue reading
On Tuesday 25th March, Court Fields year 10 students played host to their inaugural fixture against Wellington School. A much anticipated local derby had Court Fields players chomping at the bit to get the game started. Wellington school started brightly and quickly settled into the game with some slick passing. Good defence kept them out and allowed Court Fields to counter on several occasions. Myles opened the account 15 mins into play with a ground shot that passed swiftly under the keeper. Shortly after the ref judged that a Court Fields player had been pushed in the area and promptly pointed at the spot. Tom smashed the ball into the net giving the keeper no chance of a save.
The second half was more of an even affair with Wellington school coming close on several occasions. A final flourish from Court Fields saw Kieran find the net to round off a deserved 3-0 victory. This was a great fixture and one that both parties felt should remain in the calendar.
Court Fields 1 – 0 Kings College
Court Fields welcomed a very talented Kings College side. Both teams played some really neat football, creating numerous chances. Court Fields School players Gould and Hollick, resumed normal duty, winning the central midfield battle as per usual. Great defensive performances from Currie, Salter, McCabe and the ever-reliable Buttle reduced Kings to minimal shots on goal, and even when they did, Mitchell was certainly more than equal to it. It was particularly down the wings that Court Fields cause Kings most problems through the engines of Nutkins, Sears, Roncaglia and Channon. The goal finally came through the prolific Grabham with 5 minutes remaining, cutting in from the right hand side to slot home with a clinical finish, giving Court Fields a well deserved win. The girls must now take this performance and take it into next week’s game away at Taunton Academy. Superb work girls!!!

After a shortened game of 40 minutes due to poor light, Court Fields put 66 points past their Taunton Academy counterparts. The game kicked off with good pressure from the Taunton Academy pack, but good defence that lead to a turnover saw Court Fields and Harry Buckingham run in their first try. Former Taunton Academy student, Cam Hellier had a good day against his former side, scoring two tries, and was a menace throughout. Part way through the first half a solid scrum lead to good hands from the Court Fields backs, the ball found wing wizard Luke Maunder, who weaved his way through the defence to score in the corner. Good tackling from Court Fields saw them secure multiple turnovers that inevitably led to two tries from Captain Chris Batts, who had a formidable game at centre. Harry Buckingham bagged himself three more tries, and seemed impossible to tackle. Other tries came from Jason Rowland, who flipped his way over the opposition defence after a good run, to score a super try that he will be sure to never forget. Fly half Tom Kelvey controlled the game well, and added all the extras with his ever reliable boot. Credit must go to the Court Fields forwards, who played their best game of the season yet. Court Fields will now play Castle in the Area Final, away on the Wednesday 27th November.

On Saturday 26th October I went to a Karate Competition in Exmouth. I entered 4 categories: Kumite (fighting), Ippon Kumite (first form of fighting, Individual Kata (group of moves performed by individual) and Team Kata (group of moves performed by 3 people). In Kumite you are fighting for 1 point. I got through the first round and was automatically fighting for first/second place. I lost that fight and got a silver medal. In Ippon Kumite the judges decided in first and final round that I was the best one there – I got gold!! In the finals of the Individual Kata my friend and I got the same score so they did some random maths and because I got the higher number, my friend won. Another Silver for me! The final event was an easy win for us in the first round but unfortunately we got second place in the last round so the last silver medal was for us.
After the competition they took some time to decide who they wanted to get the trophy/shield and all of the judges voted for me. I didn’t know this until Tuesday 5th November when I was presented with it in my Karate lesson. It was for great perseverance, attitude, resilience etc. I was so happy!

Well done and a big thank you to all the students, parents and staff who supported our Madagascar Week, 22nd – 26th April. Everyone has managed to raise over £3,166 and the money is still coming in! During the week each house took it in turns to fund raise. There were cake sales, sponge the teacher, lots of different competitions, leg waxing, face painting and lots more various sponsored events during the week including Mr Taylor having his head shaved and Mr Saunders who ran the Taunton half marathon and raised about £120. Mr Saunders said it was an enjoyable experience but next time he would like to train a bit harder for it, and finish under 2 hours.
It all finished on Friday with 30 students and 8 staff taking part in a sponsored walk to the Monument and back, carrying bricks and planks of wood. This is how children in Madagascar often walk to school every day using the bricks and wood as a seat or desk when they arrive.
We are very confident that we will reach our £2000 target by the end of the term. At the moment with all the fundraising we have done since September we are just under £2,000! This will make a massive difference to the people and children in Madagascar and will be able to pay for toilets to be put into a school!
Cancer Research UK
On the 10th – 11th of May my family and family friends are going to do the three peaks challenge, this is where you climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales. The plan is to start at 5pm on Friday and finish at 5pm on Saturday. We are doing this to raise money for Cancer Research UK and hope to raise £1000 between us. If you would like to sponsor us please go to: JustGiving.com/bowler-3-peaks. All sponsors are greatly appreciated.
Many thanks Harvey Bowler T04
Tom Trowbridge shot a 9 over gross 81 in awful conditions of the back tees at Trentham NR Stoke on Trent. In a small field of elite golfers on the UK Junior Golf Tom started well with two pars but quickly fell behind with two quick doubles. The rain and wind made everything more difficult and Tom struggled early on and was 8 over par after 8 and 4 shots behind the leader. A much needed birdie on 9 changed the round as Tom started to adapt better to the conditions. He played steadily until he dropped shots on 13 and 14, and as he teed up on 15, a 190 par 3 he needed something special to keep his dreams alive. A career 3 rescue to 2 feet led to a birdie and two shot swing with the other leaders who both bogeyed. Tom finished with 3 solid pars to win narrowly by a single shot and book his place in the http://www.jakartaworldjuniorgolf.com.
This 72 hole competition is especially exciting as it is in Jakarta, Indonesia and is an all expenses paid trip of a life time. Played on one of the top championship courses, 5 star accommodation and local caddies are provided. Tom is especially pleased as the competition runs from 4-7 June and gets him an extra week off school with the kind support of Court Fields Community School.
