Zdravko and Year Nine Band perform at Bush Hill Park Primary

Today the Year 9 band and Dravko performed at Bush Hill Park Primary School in front of a baying crowd of primary students across all year groups.  The sun shone, the music rocked and the reception of the staff, guests and students was amazing.

The event was part of a careers aspirations day arrange by our very own Governor, Paul Riddel, in his role as Chair of the Enfield Caribbean Association who do great work in and for our local community.

 

 

For Zdravko Danilov this was a homecoming gig and a chance to wow his former peers, which he did.  He opened the concert with piano renditions of All Of Me by John Legend (Ddravko’s own arrangement) and Fur Elise by Beethoven, as is his versatility!

The Year 9 band, consisting of Ahmed Ibrahim, Josh Emsley, Miles Barnett-John, Freddie Pickles and Ben Rebario, performed a full set – a truly remarkable feat for students of such a young age. The ability to turn up and perform with such professional attitudes and musical standard is testimony to the amazing work our peripatetic staff put in with the extra-curricular ensembles, producing serious top-class musicians.

 

I would like to thank Bush Hill Park Primary for hosting such an amazing day and hosting us so warmly and a special thank you to Paul for the great work he does for our boys and the local community.

We left the school with chants from the audience (and staff!) for a third set, living up to the mantra ‘Leave them wanting more… not less’.

A Poem by Tommy Emery

Year 7 boys were asked to present a fact file about Hinduism for their RE homework project; this could be done in a variety of media. Tommy Emery (with a little help from his mum) produced this brilliant poem. A very thoughtful and fact abundant piece indeed. Well done Tommy, you certainly have applied yourself with our school motto in mind.

Regards

Mr Khan

Listen up, this is for you if you’re feeling stressed, life full of hassle, you’re sad and depressed

forget your xbox fixes, ain’t no instant karma, you need to get into the Sanatana Dharma.

Also known as Hinduism, the eternal way, this religion’s  amazing- hear what I say:

They got rituals, cosmology, textual resources,

a thousand gods and goddesses- it’s horses for courses-

Vishnu, Lakshmi, Shiva, Parvati,

not forgetting Brahma and Saraswati.

Lakshmi will shower you with treasures from above, Shiva will transform things, Parvati brings love.

Each of them is different, but they’re all the same – in the Ultimate Reality- Brahman is its name.

Okay. Once you’ve mastered all the deities,

Here come the Purusarthas to tell you ’bout the way it is:

Dharma- duty, artha- work

do what’s right and never shirk.

Kama – passion, moksha – freedom, karma- actions (you’re gonna need ’em)

Samsara – the cycle of rebirth

Yoga- the paths to walk on this earth.

The Bhagavad Gita says there’s bad and good in every single one of us -that’s understood.

But the 1.15 billion who call themselves Hindus practice eternal duties- let’s give them ‘their dues-

honesty, compassion, restraint and patience – come on, let’s try it- you know it makes sense!

Here is a snippet of what the boys face in the next stage:
“As a junior agent, you will have access to the beginner levels of two bases – the Headquarters base and the Moon base. The Headquarters base will see you tackle various cyber criminal gangs. You will have to gather information, crack codes, find security flaws and dissect a cyber criminals digital trail. The Moon base is where you’ll learn to program in Python. Using your own code editor, you will be able to execute and run your own code, gradually picking up all the skills you will need to write your own programs. “

RIBI Young Chef Competition Success!

The winners of the School Heat, Josh Gilmore, of form 8U and Luc Field, of form 7F attended the next round of the cooking competition at Redbridge College recently.

 The judges chose to award Luc 2nd place. One of the judges, Lynden Davies, a professional chef who has cooked at No10 Downing Street, several premier league football clubs and Robbie Williams amongst others, declared Luc’s tandoori Pilaff dish ‘the tastiest main course of the day, superb’.

Well done to both boys for a fantastic achievement.
