Congratulations to Luca on winning a gold medal at Hertfordshire County Junior Foil Championships (U14) 2013! The competition has held at the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, on the 9th February 2013. Tree Rivers Young Blades’ press officer commented: “Luca was in strong competition and fenced well throughout to win”.
Five Stanborough students spent two weeks teaching in an orphanage in India during the February half-term break. The trip was organised by Mr Kish Poddar, Assistant Headteacher, as part of the community service ethos of the school. The students raised their own airfares and costs to travel to the city of Hosur in Tamil Nadu, India and teach at the BESSO Children’s Home.
The students and teachers gathered together at 4.00 am at the school on a cold February morning to begin their adventure. Yet a warm and colourful welcome awaited them at the gates of the BESSO Children’s Home! The BESSO Children’s home – built by STOP International in 2002 – is home to one hundred orphan children. The BESSO Children’s home also has a Primary and Nursery school that the orphans attend.
The orphans warmed up to the team of new ‘young teachers’ from England immediately. Our students were challenged by the basic facilities at the orphanage, such as using chalk and blackboard, no computers or internet, and the 30 degree temperature; but they soldiered on teaching in English Maths, Geography, English, Citizenship, History, Science, Spelling and Grammar.
Our students used their evenings to prepare their lessons. Their dedication and commitment to teaching the orphans inspired the children to complete their homework assignments and study for class tests. The young teachers were so impressed that they were moved to reward the little children with gifts and sweets for their effort in class.
Daniela, one of our ‘young teachers’, commented: “I had the time of my life. I will keep memories of this trip in my heart forever. To teach such adorable and sweet children was a touching experience. They are orphans yet there seems to be a special joy and happiness about them. I now want to have an Indian sister.”
Elizabeth also commented: “The children out there use a pencil right down until it is finished, whereas in England if we lose it we are able to buy another. I am personally going to stop complaining about things I do not have and start being thankful about things I do have.”
The Principal of the school, Mrs Josephine Ganesh, assessed and rated the teaching of the students from Stanborough School and presented awards. Tanya, Elizabeth and Phoebe received Good Teacher awards, Buya, the Best Teacher award and Daniela received the Excellent Teacher award.
Before the team left for India, Miss Gautran, an accompanying teacher, organised a collection of new underwear from the Stanborough School students and parents. Several dozen sets of underwear were received, packed and taken to India. When these were distributed to the children of the BESSO and the Way To Life orphanages, the delight on their faces was incredible.
Of course it was not all work because the team took two days off for sightseeing, travelling by train to Mysore to see the world famous Mysore Maharajah’s palace, the beautiful bird sanctuary at Ranganathithu and a tour of the city of Mysore shopping for gifts and souvenirs.
Tanya summed up what a trip like this is all about. In her words: “I will never forget the laughs, the fun, the exploring of nature and what God has created, to bring us to an understanding as to why we were placed on Earth, to help others and that’s exactly why I will never forget India.”
On 7 March 2013 Stanborough School students took up the spirit of the World Book Day with enthusiasm and excitement! Both our local students and the group of visiting students from Spain participated in a specially adapted version of “Who wants to be a millionaire?” quiz. Categories included: Bible, Literature, History, Geography, Science, Stanborough Library and General Knowledge.
Boys outshone the girls on this occasion taking the first 3 prizes but the girls are quite determined to claim the first place next year! While the three winning teams received their prizes, all students received a book token. St Albans Waterstones set up a table in the Assembly Hall to ensure that all students had an opportunity to exchange their tokens for a ‘World Book Day’ free book.
After lunch Stanborough students opened their books and enjoyed an uninterrupted hour of reading. And why not? A book is like a wallet. You don’t know what’s inside until you open it
On February 13-26 a group of Students from Stanborough Secondary School visited Hong Kong in the framework of a long-standing annual cultural exchange.
Since 2006, Stanborough Secondary School and Tai Po Sam Yuk Secondary School (TPSY) have a reciprocal exchange that allows students from both schools to explore another culture and experience a different education system. On February 3rd Stanborough welcomed a party of students from TPSY for 12 days. And on February 13th it was the turn of Stanborough students to fly to Hong Kong and enjoy a fun-packed programme.
Students had the opportunity to visit some of Hong Kong’s most famous and culturally important sites, such as Victoria Harbour, The Peak, The Big Buddha, Tai Po Lin Monastery, Tai O Fishermen Village, Macau Island and Clearwater Bay Beach among many others. Students also attended lessons at TPSY where they particularly enjoyed Mathematics and English. Additionally, they experienced China’s rich culinary culture and appreciated the opportunity to make new friends.
About her experience Sarah – a Year 7 student – shares: “What l liked the most about Hong Kong was Ocean Park and the Big Buddha. Ocean Park is a theme park with lots of fun rides and extremely fast Merry-Go-Rounds… The Big Buddha [a 26m stature on a hilltop in Ngong Pi] was really big. It is very important to Buddhist people… and we saw them praying when we got to the top.”
“Our students are privileged to have such an opportunity to develop as global citizens”, said one of the accompanying teachers. “Trips like this provide them with first-hand experience about other cultures and educational systems. Additionally, it teaches them tolerance and responsibility towards each other and the wider world.”

On Thursday 25th October Stanborough held a memorable Speech Night to celebrate the students’ achievements throughout the academic year 2011-2012. Elder Daniel Jackson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America, was the guest of honour. His inspirational speech focused on how “your attitude determines your altitude”. Elder Jackson shared how a correct attitude helped one of his children –he is father to three and grandfather to four – to overcome his initial difficulties with learning how to read. He encouraged the students to be authentic and aim high.
Elder Jackson also participated in the presentation of awards and prizes, conducted by Mr Kish Poddar and Mrs Eileen Hussey (both Assistant Heads at the school). In an emotive moment, he presented Sarah Bashorun, a former student, with the Fletcher Cup – given to those who have shown remarkable courage and determination in the face of adversity.
Sarah Bashorun’s family emigrated from Nigeria when she was 8 years of old. Coming from a culture vastly different, Sarah struggled to adjust to her new environment. Growing up in Hackney and attending an inner London School was a daunting task for a young immigrant girl. In 1990 she joined Stanborough. This meant a daily commute starting from home at 6.00 am, meeting up with fellow school mates at Euston Station, and usually arriving at Stanborough School late after travelling over two and a half hours. Sarah would get home in the evening at 7.00 pm, too tired for homework. However, she soon learnt to adapt by doing her homework on the train.
In spite of the difficult times and of all the demands on her, Sarah found Stanborough School to be ‘a place of escape’ where she found peace. At the School she found Jesus and was baptised at the age of thirteen at the New Gallery church. After she graduated from school, Sarah got a Diploma in Social Work and Higher Education from Luton University. Sarah has been working in Social work for 15 years now, and often refers to her struggles and enduring experience during her time at Stanborough in her counselling sessions. She is currently working for Haringey Social Services, supporting families subject to immigration control.
The Headmistress, Mrs Lorraine Dixon, gave her annual report, pointing out Stanborough’s excellent academic results at KS3+ and GCSE, with 79% of the students achieving 5+ A*-C grades (64% A*-C including English and Mathematics. National Average: 58.9%). Mrs Dixon also commended the spiritual development of the students and their active participation in local and international charities such as STOP international.
The Stanborough Secondary Choir, conducted by Miss Ji Eun Ahn, performed beautifully “The Prayer”; while the string ensemble delighted the audience with Handel’s “Water Music” and “Last minute”. Former student and pianist, Min-Young Bae, performed impeccably Mendelssohn’s “Prelude in E Minor” for the enjoyment of all present. The voice of the students was represented by the Head Boy, Lukonde Mwinga, who closed the evening with a wholehearted vote of thanks to all teachers and staff members.
