Virtual Geography

In the last week Year 13 students have been going on ‘virtual geography’ trips experiencing some of the things which are generally too far away or too dangerous to see in real life. To supplement their studies of hazards they ‘visited’ a volcano and explored the underground features such as magma chamber, main vents and subduction zone. They saw volcanic bombs and laving erupting all from the safety of the classroom.
We also explored underwater to look at marine ecosystems and even went to the moon.
The possibilities for geography, as well as many other subjects, are limitless and we will be experimenting with this technology across more classes in 2017.

IB FURTHER ORAL ACITIVITY – ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE

IB English Language and Literature lessons have been exciting this week with our Y12 cohort sitting their very first Further Oral Activity. In response to the topic ‘Language in a Cultural Context’, the students performed a role play where they had to demonstrate their knowledge of how our culture, gender, age and ethnicity can determine the way we both utilise and understand language. From YouTube videos, speeches, television debates to ‘mockumentaries’, the students engaged their audience with fine theatrical skills, making full use of props and costumes. The week has been highly entertaining and has left Miss Neill and Mr Anderson full of pride that we have such hardworking and talented students.

Christmas and New Year wishes from Boarding

With a long and busy term coming to an end, and with the holiday season in sight, our Boarding Prefects took the time to organise a Christmas Party for everyone in Boarding. Speaking nicely to our caterers they were lucky to be able to arrange a slightly more traditional Christmas meal, which was followed by some games and even more party food! There was even a visit from Santa, who took time out of his busy December schedule to deliver ‘Secret Santa’ presents to everyone. A fantastic, fun and festive time was had by all. A special thanks to all the prefects for organising the event.


Wishing all students and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you have a lovely holiday and come back refreshed and motivated in January.

From the Head of Girls’ boarding:

The Girls’ Boarding House staff would like to extend our best wishes to all of our parents for the holiday season. The girls have been kind, caring and enthusiastic all term and deserve a well-earned rest. We are looking forward to welcoming them back in January. The boarding house will open again on Saturday January 7th and we would like to remind all parents or guardians to let us know when their daughters will be returning. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
