Business Studies Trip to London

Business Studies Trip to London 2012Sunday 11th November, hats and scarfs packed, time had come for Year 11-13 British School students to travel to London, for their long awaited Business Studies trip.

Monday, our first day of activities, was spent at the 4Entrepreneurs Conference. One of many events held during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Students got to listen to a superb line up of inspirational speakers talk about the different challenges they faced on their journeys as successful entrepreneurs. This was followed by a Q & A session, and, students got to present their business ideas to the experts. The conference was a fantastic opportunity for students to develop a deeper appreciation of business theory in a real-life context, and, ultimately identify practical business solutions to any challenges faced.

Later that evening we went Ice-Skating which was of course a novel experience for many of the students – we had great fun! Subsequently it provided us with many amusing memories of some incredible wobbles and falls, teachers included.

New Lab Coats

29nov2012-lab-coatsY12 and Y13 Biology and Chemistry students have recently received school laboratory coats to improve health and safety standards during their many A level practical lessons. The coats are embroidered with the school emblem and help to promote a more scientific approach to practical activities. As you can see, the students are very proud to wear them!

South School Year 3 Romans

Year 3 Children 28nov2012-romans-southin the South School have been learning about Romans and a few weeks ago they put on an assembly for the rest of the school to share their work. The class especially enjoyed making their own Roman shields, swords and helmets and learning a song ´Just like a Roman´. Their Roman mosaics are fantastic!

Student Financial Management

27nov2012-financial-managementAs part of the PSHE programme, Year 10 had the chance of listening to an external speaker who presented a talk to them about how to manage their personal budgets. It was a very interesting and important activity in preparation for adult life and all the students participated actively.

Students were encouraged to reflect upon their pocket money and expenses, differentiating between needs and desires and prioritising their needs. They explored alternative options to consider when spending money and explored human needs according to Maslow's hierachy, coming to the conclusion that we are a consumerist society that needs to spend money more wisely!

Our thanks to Arminda from the OMIC (Oficina Municipal de Información al Consumidor) of the Ayuntamiento de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and to Srta. San Frutos for her organisation.

Fiery Dragons in the South School

Year 2 in the South SFiery Dragons in the South Schoolchool, have been learning about Fiery Dragons. They have listened to different stories about kind and nasty dragons, labelled parts of the dragon and written their own Dragon Stories.

For homework the children made dragons and wrote instructions describing the equipment needed and the method used. The children then presented their dragons to the rest of the class.

Look at these scary creatures on display in the reception area!
