Trivial pursuits

21dec2018-trivialWhere will you find the Sea of Tranquility? In which mode do computers calculate numbers? Just two of the questions posed to our Year 11-13 and Year 7-10 students in the Interhouse Secondary General Knowledge Competitions.

The answers, of course, were the Moon and binary. But we know you knew that. Timanfaya won the Year 11-13 Competition with an average score of 5.02 per round and Roque Nublo the 7-10, averaging 6.20 marks per round, with the final overall results being announced on the last day of term - Friday 21st December. Who do you think will win?

Feeding the world

21dec0218-food21dec2018-toysYear 10CM and The BSGC have collaborated with the Murphy family who run a food bank in Jinámar. They have organised a Christmas charity to help those in need. So those who have less than us will receive seasonal treats such as shortbread, nougat, chocolate, marzipan, and other surprises.


We have managed to collect a large quantity of food thanks to all of the students. Thank you, Miss McDonald, for telling us about the Murphy family's gesture of goodwill. We are so glad we have helped raise funds for this amazing charity and hope we can work together again in the future.

Young Lions tamed

21dec2018-footballOn Tuesday 18th December, BSGC´s KS4 team (consisting mostly of iGCSE PE students) played against Oakley at Marzagan. The Young Lions battled extremely hard, and put all their efforts in to represent the badge. A couple of goals by Sheikh and Cecilio, however, could not hold off the onslaught from a very well-organised and highly-skilled Oakley side who netted seven times. Nevertheless, the Young Lions can hold their heads high. We should have really scored more in the second half. Yet the "rub of the green" was not on our side.

Man of the Match: José Joaquín Díaz de Aguilar Rodriguez (Number 2)

Christmas Post

19dec2018-correosOn Wednesday 5th December, Tafira's Year 4 visited the main post office in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The children observed the process of separation and sorting the letters and packages to be sent. They were also able to post a Christmas card to a Year 4 class at the British School in Seville. The trip was very interesting and the children paid attention when the postal process was explained to them.

Gala Winners

Friday 23rd November was the day of our Junior Inter-School Swimming Gala with the Canterbury School and Oakley College at Santa Brígida swimming pool. Everyone came home pleased with their efforts and with a medal to show for it. There were excellent examples of great sportsmanship, some outstanding swimming and generally a very positive atmosphere, with a great turn-out of parents there to show their support.
