Secondary Update – From Mr Simon Graves 26/02/2016

This has been a busy week with parents’ evenings, sports fixtures and many other classroom based activities besides.

The Year 13s are carrying out work on life skills during their PSHE lessons in preparation for university. Over the coming weeks they will be doing cooking, ironing, financial management and first aid. I have had the pleasure of working with 13I students in the last fortnight, helping them to develop their culinary skills! This week we had a ‘cook off’ between the students to discover who the class champion would be to go through to the BVIS Masterchef Final.

They had a budget of just 100,000VND and 45 minutes to prepare, cook and present a meal to satisfy the judges, and I’m glad I skipped breakfast that day! Ranging from wonton to shrimp fried rice, they all did a wonderful job. The finalists, though, with a nice twist on the very British steak, but with an egg and potato salad, were Kirstin and Linh.

Year 11s were treated to another visit from Dr Jonathan in their PSHE lesson, this time talking with them about the risks of smoking, alcohol and drugs. As always, he was extremely engaging and informative, and I hope that the students pay heed to his excellent advice.

Year 11 parents will shortly be receiving a letter from Mr Reid about our work experience programme planned for the end of the year after exams. After its successful launch last year, we are looking to work with even more businesses to give students a taste of what real working life is like. If any parents run or work at businesses that might be able to offer a few days in June for students to gain a taster, and add some very valuable experience to their CVs, please contact Mr Reid or me at school.

Key Stage 3 are focusing very much on environmental issues. We have started our recycling project, and the art department have some very exciting things planned for the coming weeks. The students are currently looking at ways in which we can reduce waste both in school and in the community as whole.

Next week, we will be hosting the year 12 parents’ evening on Tuesday after school, and then on Thursday we hope to see all year 9s and year 11s, together with their parents, at Options Evening. This will be your main opportunity to discuss what your child might like to study next year in iGCSE or A level, so I urge you to come along.

Finally, our sports teams had mixed success this week, but we were proud of them nonetheless. See what happened in our sports round up.

Have a wonderful weekend.
