Keep CAAM and carry on

19nov2019-caamOn Thursday 14th November 2019, Vegueta's CAAM art gallery very kindly gave an excellent guided tour of their latest show to the BSGC IGCSE and A-level students. There were a range of displays split over the four floors including offerings from La Réunion's multidisclipinary artist and poet Jack Beng-Thi and Spanish performance artist Esther Ferrer. This first-hand research will be used by the students to develop their coursework projects.

We look forward to seeing the work inspired from this trip soon. Thanks again to the CAAM staff for another wonderful guided tour. We're lucky to have such an excellent institution on our doorstep.

International bright young things

18nov2019-scienceThe South School's Year 6 have been on another voyage of discovery in their science lessons. They made electrical circuits using different components. The class went on to investigate how this affects the brightness of the bulb.






Fit and they know it

18nov2019-fitWe have a small extracurricular staff running club that trains a couple of days a week. On Sunday 27th October, all of them competed in their first race together. This was no less an event than the prestigious XXXIV Carrera Popular El Corte Inglés.

All our members (Srta San Frutos, Ms Cooke, Ms Coleman and Ms Milward) did an excellent job. Congratulations to all of them, especially to Ms Coleman and Ms Milward who finished third in their respective categories! They were both awarded trophies and cash prizes.

Lest we forget

14nov2019-ww2Year 6 have been learning about World War 2 this year and, poignantly, they commemorated 11th November with an Evacuee Day. Using the medium of drama, they explored how the children may have felt in this situation.

They will draw on these experiences to write their own war diaries. During the day, they also learnt how to ration food for a family and make cookies from rationed food items. We ended with a spirits-raising sing-a-long to It's a Long Way to Tipperary and Pack up Your Troubles in Your Old Kitbag.

Leading by example

14nov2019-l2lLearn to Lead is back! After being largely successful last year, with many events and activities being organised by their members, the group is now ready to bring even more positive changes to the school. Learn to Lead is an afterschool club aimed at encouraging students to take leadership roles at the BSGC. During September, its members took part in a training programme which enabled them to take ownership of activities, make independent decisions and work together in teams of coproduction to make an impact on our school and our wider community. Now, the group has been divided into three main teams: the events team, the environmental team and the school development team. Likewise, there is a communication team which has split up into the existing groups and will be responsible for informing the school about what Learn to Lead is doing. All of these teams are guided by Ms Froidevaux, Ms Potticary and Mr King, who will coordinate the different groups and help them work together.
