As you are possibly aware, this weekend the charity event Sport Relief begins and we as a school are keen to show our support for this worthy cause. All money raised is used to make a difference right here in the UK and 50% goes towards transforming lives across the world’s poorest countries.
On Tuesday 8th March it was International Women’s Day and to celebrate Bishop Stopford’s teamed up with the ‘Sports Relief’ charity for a netball match. After the school pupils and staff packed into the sports hall for a netball match between two staff teams. There were many phenomenal performances by the female staff and a few ‘additional male netballers’. It was great to see the teachers in action. The winning team was Team Ince, managed by Mrs Ince who beat Miss Holland’s team 9-8. By Rachael Chyke 7P

13 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Luke 9:28-36New International Version (NIV)
28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. 31 They spoke about his departure,[a] which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him. 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.)

Jesus Calls His First Disciples
5 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret,[a] the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. 2 He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
