Book Swapping Day

29apr2013-Book-swappingSince April 23 was World Book Day, the Spanish Department (with the help of the English Department) organized a Book-swapping event that took place in school on Friday 26 April. Secondary students had the opportunity to bring books that they no longer wanted to keep at home. They received a voucher for each book they brought. These vouchers were then exchanged for books on the day of the event, which was really successful. It was especially moving to see how our older students generously gave some of their vouchers to younger pupils so that they could also take some books home on the day. We would like to thank all the families that allowed their children to bring books to school. Thank you to all our pupils, particularly to the Y12 and Y13 students who helped organized the event throughout the day.

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.
