Year 8 Football Win

Having beaten Wickersley at home in their first game of the season, The Year 8 football team were eager to play the end of season encounter to see if they could do it again. After an even game with both sides playing exceptionally well, the team were able to pip their rivals to the post with a 2-1 win!

Jack won ‘Man of the Match’ with Kian and Nathan scoring our winning goals. It was a job well done in an entertaining encounter played in excellent spirit by both sets of players.

Teen Tech 2015

On Thursday 12th March, 11 Year 8 students attended Teen Tech 2015 at Doncaster Racecourse.

TeenTech is an interactive experience designed to inspire young teenagers about careers in the contemporary world of Science, Engineering and Technology. The Y8 students had the opportunity to look at many of the exhibits there and all had the opportunity to have hands on experience on how science, technology and engineering can be used.

In the morning, the students had to design a gadget that would make life easier in the future; they came up with the idea of the flexi-phone which they then had to market and present to students from other schools. Our imaginative students were awarded with certificates for the “Best Gadget” !

In the afternoon, the students learnt about electric guitar design and how scientists designed the probes which are able to land safely on Mars – this activity saw the students designing parachutes which would allow an egg to safely land without breaking. The students were an absolute credit to the school and a fun day was had by all.

Futsal Fever!

Congratulations to the Year 8 and 9 Futsal team who played exceptionally well at the Futsal Tournament on Tuesday night. They won two of their games and finished 2nd overall, beaten only by the Wickersley team.  They represented the school excellently and we are very proud of their achievements!

Hepworth Gallery Trip

On the 6th of March 2014, a group of students from Clifton Community School were invited to share their work at esteemed ‘The Hepworth Gallery’ along with other young people from

across the country. All of the groups, two from Rotherham, Brighton, Sheffield and Wakefield are participating in the international ‘Imagine’ project run by Professor Kate Pahl from the University of Sheffield.

The students, all girls from Year Seven upwards, got a chance to see the current exhibitions at the Hepworth and recreated them in interesting ways. In addition to this, each group shared an activity so by the end of the day they had analysed paintings, created representations of themselves on DVD cases, wrote letters to themselves for the future and fashioned a tree of resilience.

The girls also got to present their own work – something which was unique to the group. Each young person discussed one piece that they had created and how that represented their imagined better futures. The event was also filmed by a film-maker provided by the gallery! The project will culminate with a final exhibition at the Millennium Galleries in Sheffield.

We are very proud of the girls involved and all the hard work they have put into the project.

Well done to Jesica Gaborova, Aneta Zigova, Barbora Sabolova, Cyntia Tothova, Vanesa Tothova, Laura Slepcikova, Silvia Slepcikova, Perla Makulova, Karolina Varadyova, Vanesa Cechova, Janova Kvetoslava, Simona Sabolova, Laura Janova and Valeria Gaziova
