Tomorrow's leaders today

15may2019-leadersThe Learn to Lead Community recently gathered in the Dining Room to share their work and receive feedback on the many projects undertaken this year. It was a great opportunity to congratulate the 83 members on their achievements so far but also to reflect on what needs to be improved in the future. For this meeting, our Learn to Lead coordinator, Madame Froidevaux, set up a video conference with Maxwell Jeffery, Learn to Lead Director from the UK, who visited the BSGC to deliver our training in September 2018.

This gave us a chance for us to ask him questions on how to progress with our projects and raise any concerns we may have. Maxwell gave thoughtful replies which immediately solved any problems. The Learn to Lead community felt truly valued and it helped us take a step closer towards our approaching maturity. To finish this productive meeting, the five teams were rewarded with a variety of enticing snacks which they happily enjoyed.

Art and graft

07may2019-art-examsYear 11 and Year 12 students have been working from the Cambridge list of exam starting points and creating their own individual projects over the last few months. The final pieces had to be produced under exam conditions over two days in eight hours for Year 11 and over three days in 15 hours for Year 12. Well done both year groups for the consistently high standard and amazing effort.
