At the City Wide Badminton Team Championships our two Key Stage 4 teams and Key Stage 3 team performed to a high standard of play, Our Key Stage 3 team was though our only representative in the knock out phases having defeated Parrswood, Cedar Mount and Manchester Communication Academy in the group phase finishing top of Group A. This meant a semi-final against Burnage who were defeated 4 games to 1 meaning qualification to the final. In the final their opposition was Chorlton High School, the standard of play from all 4 students was incredibly high but they were defeated 3 games to 2 on the last leg of the final winning silver medals. Our Key Stage 3 team consisted of Ben Bentley, Ruben Baker, Josh Stonefield and Charlie Leventhall.

Organsied by Academic Lead, Mr.Christo, Prospective medical and dental students from KDHS Sixth Form took part in a mock Multiple Mini Interview session (MMI).
MMI is the preferred way that medical/dental schools gauge the ability of students to cope with the intensity of the course and have replaced traditional panel interviews. The ten stations included inter alia: numerical calculation; ethical dilemma; manual dexterity; graphical interpretation; and NHS awareness.
Many thanks to Dr.Ellis, Dr.Dover and all staff who participated.
Just before half term, the city of Manchester badminton doubles championships took place at Whalley Range. Our 4 teams performed admirably but sadly 3 were knocked out in the group stages. Our sole qualifiers to the knock out phase was our key stage 3 boys team of Ben Bentley and Ruben Baker.
In the semi finals they were drawn against Parrswood and successfully qualified for the Finals winning 15-11. This guaranteed the boys a medal but which colour? Their opponents were Manchester Grammar school. The boys were victorious winning 15-12 and are now City of Manchester Champions - a fantastic achievement for all their hard work at badminton club.
Bobby Wagon, from Year 7 Yavneh Boys, cut his long hair to raise £2300 to support boys and girls with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex.
Bobby's own brother, Uzi was born with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). This is a rare genetic condition which means that he has benign growths on his organs. These growths cause other complications, so in addition, Uzi has Autism and Epilepsy. The Tuberous Sclerosis Association funds vital medical research, and during Uzi's lifetime there have already been significant breakthroughs with new medication and treatments. Bobby hopes that one day, they will succeed in finding a cure for TSC.
