Year 11 Geography Trip to San Mateo

16apr2013-y11-geo-san-mateoAs part of the IGCSE Geography course pupils are required to take part in an urban field study. On 8th March, Year 11 geographers spent the day in San Mateo investigating traffic flows in the town, the environmental quality of different locations, completing a land use survey and carrying out questionnaires.

It was an invaluable experience for pupils, as it not only prepared them for the IGCSE exam, but it also enhances their team work, organisation and communication skills.

BSGC has been trying to promote girls football within the island over the past year and this led to the first BSGC Invitational girls competition being played at Las Palmas University on 15th March. With a depth of talent to choose from a strong squad of 14 was taken to the tournament. The BSGC team proved far too strong for all the competition they came across with comprehensive 8-0 and 4-1 victories in their opening two matches. This led to a final game with Oakley with victory needed to secure the trophy. The result was never in doubt with BSGC running out 7-0 winners. All the girls played their part but special mention must go to Elena and Isabel Suarez who scored an incredible 12 goals between them at the tournament.

ASLP Tournament - Volleyball and Football

03apr2013-ASLP-volleyballThe ASLP Volleyball Tournament

Both the senior and junior girls volleyball teams competed in the ASLP tournaments hoping that the hours of committed training and house matches would pay off. With Canterbury, Oakley, ASLP and ourselves it was going to be a tough competition, especially as ASLP have a long history of success in Volleyball and compete on a weekly basis in the Canarian League.

The BSGC Junior team led by Andrea Cabrera and Candela Beisti performed fantastically well in the opening two matches, comfortably beating Oakley and Canterbury 2 -0. This led to a final against the tournament hot favourites ASLP. The BSGC team performed magnificently well but were unfortunately beaten by only 3 points in each set which meant ASLP walked away with the trophy.
