Swanlea School is now predominantly a cashless school, with parents making payments for dinner/tuck money on-line via ‘ipayipact’. However, we will not allow a child to go without a dinner if they have insufficient money on their account.

Year 8 Athletics Tournament

On Tuesday 26th February, Year 8 participated in an indoor athletics at Lee Valley Athletics Centre.

The first events were field events for the Year 8s. Our shot-putter and triple jumper got high scores and lengths, but due to the fierce competition others came higher and both the boys came 4th or 5th (not clearly specified at the time). Our high jumper came 1st place with ease.

In the 400m (two laps around the track), our runner stayed in 2nd place throughout the whole race but nearly lost it at the end.  Thankfully he sprinted the final straight to the finish line, coming in second!

Next was 200m and 60m. In both sprints, tension rose as lots of sprinters were quite evenly as fast as each other. Fortunately, both of Swanlea’s sprinters won their races.

Last, but not least, was the intense relay race – which was 1 lap for each runner. The final runner was in 3rd place but then paced the final straight to finish Swanlea’s relay team in 2nd place.

At the end of the tournament, Swanlea were declared 5th place out of the 11 schools. Well done to all involved!






Year 8 Football Tournament

A few weeks ago, the Year 8 football team participated in a 7 a-side tournament against 2 other schools in Tower Hamlets. It was at Victoria Park and was organised by Queen Mary’s University.

In the first match, it was Swanlea vs Stepney Green. Our team struck a goal first with a long-range shot into the bottom corner. However, only a few minutes later, the Stepney winger did a brilliant cross to the striker who then scored. It was 1-1 and Swanlea were determined to win. We made many chances with crosses and passes in the oppositions’ box but unfortunately we couldn’t execute an on-target finish.

In Swanlea’s second match, we were opposing St Michael’s Catholic College. In this match, Swanlea had most possession of the ball the majority of the time and made several chances for a goal. However, St Michael’s goalkeeper did some brilliant saves against Swanlea’s wingers and strikers. Fortunately, near the end of the match, Swanlea’s left-winger dribbled through their midfielders and defenders, passing it into the back of St Michael’s net.

At the end of this tournament, Stepney Green won with 1st place and St Michael’s were 2nd due to goal difference. Swanlea were declared 3rd place!
