E28 Crew Malala 2023 Round Up!

Crew Malala in E28 had a great term in Autumn 2023. Here are some of the highlights:

We have been working on our Duke of Edinburgh Voluntary Stewardship by taking our turn to pick up litter around the school site. We have it down to a science, splitting into teams and taking different areas. We can clear the site of litter in around ten minutes!

With 97% attendance, we won the attendance league for Term 1a! We are waiting to see if we can keep the top spot for Term 1b.

At the end of Term 1b, E28 had their termly awards. Crew Malala came out on top with three awards! Fasia won for kindness, Alex for most improved, and Holly won for consistently working hard. Holly was a unanimous decision by all teachers who voted.

Crew Malala are looking forward to what 2024 brings. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Crew Malala. See you in January.

Y8 & Y9 End of Term Celebrations

What a fantastic way to end the term!

The remarkable dedication and effort demonstrated by all of Year 8 and Year 9 students throughout this term have been truly inspiring.

In our commitment to acknowledging their achievements, we have employed various means such as recognising them through praise points and expressing appreciation in community meetings.

To cap off the term on a high note, we collaborated with leaders, teaching staff, and crew leaders to shine a spotlight on students who have truly exemplified our XP values. This was achieved through an uplifting community meeting where several students were honoured for their outstanding accomplishments and commitment.

We carefully identified and commended students in various categories to celebrate their successes and positive contributions to our school community.

Above and Beyond
For students who consistently go above and beyond what is expected of them. Extracurricular activities, volunteer work, or initiatives that benefit the school or community.
Consistently Working Hard
Students who consistently put in effort and dedication to their academic progress and HoWL’s
Most Improved Student
For students who have shown remarkable progress and improvement over a period of time.
Wonderful Human Being
For students who actively show compassion, extend support, and exemplify outstanding human qualities by looking out for their peers and being kind to others.

Each student will also have the opportunity to join a celebration breakfast and festive acivities this week

Here a little insight into our community meeting.

Crew Malala Preparing for Passage

Members of Crew Malala have started preparing for the passage presentations in the new year. Passage is where students have the opportunity to show how they have grown and that they are prepared for starting their GCSEs. This morning students reflected on their time at XP East and started preparing what they want to talk about during their Passage presentations.

E28 Crew Malala on Bronze D of E Litter Pick!

Every other Wednesday Crew Malala get their high viz vests on and head out to do their litter pick towards their Bronze D of E award. Crew splits into four teams of three, we use a timer for ten minutes, and divide and conquer the site into zones to make the most efficient use of our time. During debrief of the activity, Crew said that they found these ten minutes really productive, and because they have a fixed amount of time, it goes really quickly and everyone has a job to do. Crew agreed that Pickers of the Week are Will, for retrieving the most amount of litter, and Deanna for taking responsibility for the bin bag. Nice work Crew Malala!
