Reliving an armed robbery

06mar2019-robberyOn Wednesday 27th February, Year 8 attended a very exciting trip organized by Canarias E-BOOK. Here they met the author of Robo a mono armado, Francisco J. Quevedo, close to the Museo Nestor where the crime occurs. Señor Quevedo patiently answered the many questions the students had prepared for him.

After a short break in the Parque Doramas playground, we headed to the Muelle Deportivo. This is where the book's conclusion takes place. Thanks to the book's publisher, Pablo Checa Merino, for the wonderful guided tour.

Rhyme time

01mar2019-y9-assemblyEarlier this month, the English department received over 100 entries to the COBIS Poetry competition. Students had the freedom to write their own poems, with the only rule that it somehow had to apply to the theme: The Last Page. The English department loved reading through all of the entries and had a very difficult job choosing the best poems to submit. We are yet to hear if any of our entries have been successful but today we awarded our finalists with a prize to congratulate them on their excellent work. Our winners were: Bujin (7MF), Pablo (8TP), Alicia (8MS), Maite (9SJ), Divya (11KP) and Bella (11MZ). Congratulations to everyone who entered a poem and especially to those mentioned above.

Pyjama party

28feb2019-pyjama-partyOn Friday 23rd February, twentysomething Year 9 students stayed the night in Tafira. This sleepover was a great success with everybody who attended still talking about it. Many thanks to Señorita García for arranging this and Señoritas San Frutos and Reyes for helping out on the Friday and Saturday.

Africa calling

28feb2019-africa-callingMr Clark and Secondary's Mr King recently visited Uganda as part of a BSGC project to instigate a link with a charitable group of schools in this African country. The trip was part of extensive short-term preparations. The long-term plan is to take a group of BSGC students to Uganda in the summer of 2020 to provide service work in the designated schools.

This was a very intense, demanding and exhilarating experience and by the end of our journey it became clear that making this project possible would provide a unique and unforgettable learning opportunity for our students. This understanding, alongside the school's commitment to developing responsible and worldly-wise citizens, has redoubled the commitment to ensure that we reach our goal of a trip in 2020.

Listen to Mother

Year 6 students at The South School have been learning Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories and performed them in assembly. This ties in with the work they have been doing in class, studying all about the Benin Bronzes.
