Go on, grow one! It’s almost Movember. Time for a tache. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health. Can you recognise these moustaches that adorn the faces of Bethnal Green Academy staff?

Issue #111 - Monday 22 October 2012
Last year, Movember raised a phenomenal £79.3 million across the globe. The hairy movement will continue to grow in 2012, as 21 countries across five continents unite to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. It’s time to think about how we can support Movember at Bethnal Green Academy. Get prepared - cut out a moustache (below) and wear it with pride!

Word of the week.
Basketball League News Tower Hamlets Y10 & 11 Basketball League This week’s players were: Theo Barbey (yr 11), Francis Biyak (yr 11), Elvis Magba (yr 11), Abdul Khabirr Mohammed (yr 9), Jesse Santos (yr 11), Daniel Alexander (yr 11), Robbivl Chowdury (yr 11), Mustafa Aydinogle (yr 11). They played St Paul’s Way (score: 19 - 8, win) and Bishop Challoner Boys (score: 12 - 6, lost). The St Paul’s way game, a brilliant display of team work and passing. BGA managed to get an early lead in the first half and keep calm in the second half which allowed them to punish St Paul’s Way for any mistakes on a fast counter attack. Bishop Challoner Boys is probably the best team in the borough for this age in basketball. BGA managed to level up with their ability up until the first half with the score being 6-6. Lack of concentration allowed Bishop to show their experience in winning this tournament and they completed the score line with a 12 - 6 win. BGA still battled and displayed teamwork and possibly the best defensive this season and could walk off the court proud with their team effort.

Students at BGA have worked hard over the last two years to set up City Safe Havens across the local area. A shop on Hackney Road, which is now a City Safe Haven (which BGA students converted) was used by someone who was going to be attacked! That's a result of the shopkeeper keeping true to their commitment and it's all down to the students that someone was saved from attack- Well Done BGA Shoreditch Citizens.

Associated Words In this puzzle a list of words is given. To solve the puzzle, think of a single word that goes with each to form a compound word (or word pair that functions as a compound word). For example, if the given words are volley, field, and bearing, then the answer would be ball, because the word ball can be added to each of the other words to form volleyball, ballfield, and ball bearing. Last weeks answer: congratulations and proof
