Project pattern

25jun2019-patternY7 have recently completed a rotating pattern printing project. These vibrant designs were achieved using a foam-printing block and rollers. Students had to be very careful to place each layer of colour exactly over the previous one and rotate the plate 90 degrees each time. Well done, Y7.

Dual Jewels

25jun2019-jewelsThe South School has enjoyed providing Fencing as an enrichment activity for the last two years. Thanks to our coach, many of our pupils have enjoyed considerable success in competitions locally and nationally. Recently Yraya and María from Year 4 and Rodrigo from Year 5 from the South School Fencing club competed in the National Spanish Fencing tournament in Madrid.

They all acquitted themselves exceptionally well against stiff competition. María won gold in her category and became the Spanish National Champion. We are all very proud of our Fencing team, especially María.

Congratulations to all. All for one and one for all. Next step, the Europeans???

Sunflower power

21jun2019-sunflowersThe South School's Year 3 have been learning all about flowers. Miss Dykstra has been teaching the students about their reproductive parts. The children then planted the sunflower seedlings they've cultivated in soil and look forward to seeing them grow tall.

House proud

21jun2019-housesYear 7 students are currently painting the new house shields. The designs, however, were collectively produced by all secondary students. We can't wait to display these on the walls of the Agora.

Techno hits

12jun2019-techno-hitCongratulations to Year 10EC's Ana Bulchand. Along with her partner, IES La Minilla's Sara Betancor, she forms one half of MoleCool Girls. They entered the Technovation Challenge, a project for female students aged from 10 to 18 to promote the use of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths).

Ana and Sara are competing in the senior (15 to 18) category which is sponsored by the likes of Google, Adobe, Walmart, and the United Nations. More than 1,000 teams have been whittled down to 150 worldwide. The two to make these semi-finals from the Canary Islands are MoleCool Girls and Orion Company.

Teams are required to deliver a business plan. The application that MoleCool Girls have developed is called Eldergetic. They have been mentored by Ana's mother, Freya Morales.
