Robbie Defends His Title!

We have previously reported on Robbie Cowell and his triumphs in kickboxing and we are happy to now report that Robbie defended his World title in Portugal and came away with 4 gold medals and 1 silver and is currently a 6 times World Champion.

Robbie began his kickboxing journey at the age of 5 at East Meets West Black Belt Academy in Bedlington Station. It quickly became apparent that he was a natural in the sport. By the age of 10 he was multi British and European Champion. He began competing on the world stage at the age of 8 and is now 6 times World Champion over 3 different disciplines having traveled to Canada, Italy and Portugal.  Robbie has been a junior instructor at the club for two years and regular teaches class to children from the age of 3 upwards. Robbie intends on making a career out of his chosen sport.

Well done Robbie!

NELT Games

Year 7 and 8 students had a wonderful time representing Bedlington Academy at the NELT (North East Learning Trust) Games which were held on Thursday 19th October 2017. The students played against all other secondary schools in the trust in both netball and football, experiencing a large number of games which allowed them to develop their skills and improve their performance throughout the day. Well done to all students who participated and represented our school.

Why Queue?

On Monday 16 October year 7 students from Bedlington Academy watched a workshop about sustainable transport to school. The production was presented by The Riot Act Theatre Company who not only presented an hour of drama but also gave some interesting facts  about  sustainable transport. The sketches were very funny and looked at different ways students can travel to school like using their cycles or scooters and walking to and from school. Getting the bus was also another initiative that the students were encouraged to use.

Can you answer the following:

The level of carbon imitations in the atmosphere today is higher than

A: The past 50,000 years.

B: The past 500,000 years or

C: the last million Years?

The answer is C.

This was just one of the facts that came out of the workshop. The students were encouraged to get to and from school without getting their parents to bring them in the car.
