West London District Basketball Tournament February 2009

West London District Basketball TournamentOn Sunday 22nd February the 12 selected U13 Basketballers from the West London Region (Hounslow, Ealing, Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent) Played in the London Tournament held at Capital City Academy, Willesden. Of the 12 players selected for the West District team five came from Feltham Community College, these were Leon Shafique, Prabesh Katawal, Hamza Mirza, Aseel Abdullah and Michael Fayombo.

The team were drawn in a strong pool and in their first game, with strong driving play by Leon Shafique and Prabesh Katawal and excellent support play by Chike Dale (Harrow High) the West dominated the game but only managed to win 19-17 against Central London.

Buoyed by their early victory the team went into the second game against North East London. With a strong first quarter with Katawal, Mirza, Fayombo and Dale dominating around the key the West stretched into an 8 point lead. The North East hit back quickly in the third quarter to cut the deficit to two points, baskets were traded with Benu Napata (Wembley High) and Issiah Dixon (Chiswick Community) coming on to continue the West’s attacking threat. The game went down to the last four seconds of the last quarter but unfortunately the West snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, loosing 40-42.

With a win needed from their last game against South East London, the West came out strong again. With Shafique and Cameron Stephenson (Noah Hill) combining well in the back court, the West took a quick lead which they did not relinquish. Year 7s Niall Gallagher (Elthorne Park) and Kevin Loi-Heng (Cardinal Wiseman) came on and added increased energy on the court and allowed Gallagher to score 8 quick points to extend the margin of victory to 30-20.

Coach Andy Justice saluted the team; ‘the team has only had three days together and have produced the best result from the West district in recent times. Missing out of the final by only two points was difficult for the surprise team of the tournament. The player’s attitude and effort was fantastic and a real credit to the West district’.

A silver lining came when both Leon Shafique and Chike Dale were selected for the London district squad to play in the National Tournament in October. Prabesh Katawal was also selected but cannot represent London due to age clash restrictions.

 Hounslow Borough Badminton Tournament January 2009

Twelve students from year 7 and 8 took part in the Hounslow Borough Badminton Doubles Tournament which was held at the Hounslow Badminton Centre near Southall on 13th January 2009. A total of 30 entrants participated in the tournament representing three schools. Initially each pair was placed in a round-robin group consisting of five pairs.

All of the Feltham Boys eased comfortably through the group stages to progress to the semi-finals. Unfortunately the girls pair if Nikita Kavanagh and Saleema Kasim failed to make out of the group but can take pride in the fact they were only female participants and were up against strong opposition. The quarter finals had one all Feltham affair in which Prabesh Katawal and Luke Johnson were ousted out by Michael Fayombo and Manipreet Vanteddu.

In the other matches the reigning champions, Arnie Carter and Asif Brohi comfortably moved into the semis and David Tomkins and Harry Doyle also progressed.

The semis were dominated with three Feltham pairings and one pair from Heathlands who had a county player in their ranks.

The reigning champions defeated Doyle and Tomkins while Fayombo and Vanteddu lost out to the Heathlands pair in a tough semi-final.

The final saw the reigning champions pitted against Heathlands. In a tight match mistakes were costly. Feltham edged ahead to take a 17-14 lead with the serve. However a service fault brought the scores to 17-15 and momentum had shifted to Heathlands. With the county player sending down some booming smashes the Feltham defence was punctured repeatedly. Only one more point was added to the Feltham score and eventually Heathlands ran out the winners 21-18.

Image of England U16's  RL playerThe West London Jets are the newest addition to the London Rugby League community, as well as being the first girl's underage Rugby League club. The Jets launched in June 2008 on the back of Harlequins Rugby League community work in the Richmond, Kingston and Hounslow boroughs. Since then the squad have been training hard, working towards their competitive debut. Most of the players are from leading London Rugby League school, Feltham Community College.

Although the Jets failed to register a win at the National tournament, the girls gained valuable experience as they played extremely competitively against Middleton and Warrington, two of the strongest teams in their age group.

Harlequins Women and Girls CSC and Jets head coach Aran Quinn was delighted with the team's performance; "The girls have been working really hard in preparation for this competition. Even though we didn't win any games there was some fantastic rugby played, including our very first try scored by Jess Lock. The fact they competed so well against such experienced teams shows a lot of potential for the future"

National Schools Sports Week Ju;y 2009
National Schools Sports WeekIn order to celebrate National Schools Sports Week the college laid on a wide range of activities, which not only impacted on students PE lessons but also used sport to develop understanding in other lessons. Students were also set the challenge of setting themselves sporting pledges.

In PE students were given the opportunity to choose their activity. The theme was ‘try something new’. Students were given the opportunity to use our new climbing wall and to play games such as Rocket Ball, Floor Ball, Handball, Ultimate Frisbee and Shokk Combat. These activities really engaged the students and we are looking at including some of them in our curriculum for next year.

During lunch times and after school students were given an enhanced programme of activities. Table Tennis and a Rowing challenge were set up on the playground, to ‘bring sport to the public’. The two most impressive performances on the rowing challenge were from Josh Shakleton and Danielle Pond.

All years 7 experienced lessons with a sporting theme across the whole of there curriculum. Example of this included Science where students learnt about forces through Rugby and in Maths where they improved their data collection by recording each other in track and field events. This method of learning has been proved to be really popular and the departments are looking to add more active learning experiences into their schemes of work.

Year 7 Lord's Cricket Ground Visit June 2009
Year 7 Lord's Cricket Ground VisitOn Thursday 25th June a group of 14 Year 7 students went on a visit to Lord's Cricket Ground. The trip was organised as a cross-curricular trip involving both the PE and English departments. The trip involved having a tour of the home of cricket and going behind the scenes of the most famous cricket ground in the world.

Highlights of the tour involved going into the pavilion and the ‘Long Room’ where players walk through before walking on to the pitch, getting in a chance to sit in the changing rooms and in the seat of famous England players such as Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen.

After leaving the pavilion the tour went out into the stands to get some memorable photos and then on to the media centre. The media centre was of great interest as those studying media in school managed to find out a lot about the futuristic structure and how cricket is reported and broadcasted to the world. The view from the media centre is second to none and the boys were all very impressed.

The day concluded with some lunch next to the nursery ground and a visit to the shop to pick up some souvenirs, not before at least spotting one famous person, former England Captain Mike Gatting was nearby and said hello!

Houses of Parliament College Trip June 2009
Houses of Parliament College TripOn Wednesday the 10th June Lee Ewing, Leon Jezeph and Calum Matthews from Year 8 along with Mr Neal and Mr Footman had the privilege of being invited to the Houses of Parliament to meet former Sports Minister and current World Cup ambassador Richard Caborn MP.

The trip was part of a promotional visit organised by local Feltham and Hounslow MP Alan Keen to promote the bid for the 2018 World Cup in England. The boys, who all represented the Year 8 football team this year, had presented a signed football to Mr Caborn. The ball was signed by students at Feltham Community College all supporting the 2018 bid.

The boys were joined by students from other local schools for a photo shoot at the home of government. After the photo shoot the students even found time to have a quick kick about on the lawn within the parliament grounds which is something that no one has the opportunity to do and doubt it will be repeated.

The day finished with a short tour of the Houses of Parliament and access to some exclusive areas that only MP’s are permitted. Whilst on tour and on the look out for famous faces, the group was passed by the Leader of the Liberal Democrats Nick Clegg on the stairs, however Gordon Brown was nowhere to be found!
