Reaching for the horizon

06nov2019-yogaYear 11 recently participated in a Buena Vibra yoga workshop. We learnt that whilst yoga is classified as a sport, it's anything but. Our teacher introduced us to lots of different positions, including the Gladiator 1, 2, and 3.

Yoga promotes a positive lifestyle. Its complementary health approach is one of its strengths. Yoga also helps reduce stress.

One of our favourite positions was greeting the sun. We did this with jumps and without them. This would be a great way to start every day!

The great outdoors

Press gangs

24oct0219-pressLast Thursday, over 40 students from our three houses - Teide, Timanfaya, Roque Nublo - spent the day off timetable publishing their very own newspaper. Each house had to work collaboratively, to research, write and edit their own papers. The students worked fantastically and all teams just made the deadline at the end of the day, running into the Agora to hand Miss Brunton their completed newspaper. After a rigorous judging process, taking into consideration teamwork, content, layout, visual quality and use of English, this year's House Newspaper champions are Roque Nublo! Congratulations to all students who participated and we look forward to a bigger and better competition next year! To read the newspapers in full, see the display in the entrance.

Goal Rush

22oct2019-footballOn Thursday 17th October, Tafira Primary played their first league games of the football season with fixtures against Canterbury School. Our players demonstrated excellent skills and a determination to do their best for BSGC.

In their match, the Years 3&4 competed valiantly against some strong opposition and did very well in defence, minimising Canterbury's goal threat. Year 3's Silvio and Year 4's Hugo played their hearts out although the whole team deserves a mention as they kept the score down to 1-4.

Years 5&6 rose to the occasion and were almost impenetrable in defence, playing some truly skilful football. It's clear that we have a winning team on our hands and we're all hoping this year these boys can bring the league championship home.

Year 6's Rafa scored eight goals of pure brilliance and other players to mention were Louie, also from Year 6, who showed an exceptional eye for space having recently joined the team, Mario from Year 5 who did not stop running and appeared to have feet of lightening and classmate Hugo who, after failing in several goal attempts, eventually drove two home. The final score was 12-1.
