Year 9 Science Project #35

Take a look at what our Year 9 Science class have been busy experimenting with...building catapults

Their most recent project has entailed them not only designing and building and most exciting, testing their very own catapult!

What is a catapult?

A catapult is a ballistic device to help launch a projectile at a long distance. It was particularly used to build various types of ancient and medieval siege engines.

Take a look at the photos below to see how the project was conducted and tested:

Welcome 2019! #34

Warm welcome back to our staff and students to the start of 2019 and the start of the second term of the school year!

We hope everyone had a great holiday and have enjoyed their first week back at school, meeting their friends, teachers and colleagues.

Let's hope this will be another great school term for us all, with lots of learning, hard work, determination to succeed and making sure we have fun and laughter along the way too!

Here’s to making memories for the future ahead!

 

 

Student Choice Ends #33

One can really feel the excitement and enthusiasm in the school at the moment as we not only end the Student Choice for the Autumn/ Winter break but we also get closer to our Christmas Holidays!

Our students have had yet another fantastic Student Choice this year with lots of successful and fun learning activities for them to enjoy and participate in.

We look forward to seeing what is in store for our next year's Student Choice activities as it is fair to say it keeps getting better each year!

Annual Reading Day #32

We had yet another successful Reading Day on Thursday 13th December for our Junior and Senior School, straight after our Lucia ceremony.

The day was filled with exciting activities, games, craft and competitions all related to reading, for example:

- Kahoot

- Jeopardy

- Poetry

- Bookmark & Book Cover Design

- Reading to Primary students

Off course there was time for each Year Group to enjoy some peaceful and quiet reading time too!

So it is fair to say, everyone had a fun and exciting day and no one was shy to bring out the book worm in them!

Third Parent Newsletter #31

Greetings all guardians,

Thank you for a very positive response to our behaviour development efforts. Most students and parents say it is a good thing and the main points of feedback we have received is that it needs to be clear, predictable and fair to everyone involved. We are working hard to make sure it is that way.

Parent Emails and Information Evenings

As we head into the darkest weeks of winter we ask you all to make sure your children are visible - even a small reflex on a jacket or bag can help make n important difference when crossing the road.

 

Wishing you a wonderful winter break!
