Thank you to everyone involved in the Songs of the Light Concert on Friday. It was a great opportunity for students to get involved in the arts whilst helping raise money for Christian Aid.
Three musicians from Coda Music are in school today for their second of four workshops with a group of 22 Year 9 students. They are working with the students in small ensembles writing their own original music ready to perform by the end of the workshops. Students are enjoying the opportunity to work with professional musicians and have come up with some great ideas.
Eleven Year 12 students are visiting the Houses of Parliament today. Students will have a tour of Parliament with an MP and will attend a “Law and Debating” workshop. They will also visit Parliament Square and the recently unveiled statue of Millicent Fawcett. We hope they have a great time!
Good luck to our Year 11 Art students who will be spending the next two days completing their final pieces of art work, which they have been preparing for since February.
The Science department have set up a bird box just outside S5, as part of Spring watch club. Students have been monitoring the progress of the nest every school day, since the first bird visited on 23rd March. The birds laid some eggs on the 9th April, which we are expecting to hatch between Saturday 21st and Tuesday 25th April.
The students are also growing sunflowers and broad beans and are watching caterpillars develop into butterflies. They have cleaned the school pond and are also tracking the progress of the tadpoles they collected.
More updates to follow.
