Year 9 News - 8th April 2016

07 April 2016

Can you believe it is finally the summer term! Amazing how quickly the time has gone. It only seems like yesterday when the students were preparing to head off on Project Week! We finished last term on an absolute high with the fantastic International Week celebrations. One of my favourite weeks of the year. It was marvelous to see the students dressed up in their costumes from their home countries, everyone so proud of their heritage. From the rowdy Italians to the singing Spanish the parade was a sea of colours and fun. And, of course, the food fair was again a treat for all. Thank you to all the parents and friends who created fantastic stalls serving delicious food and drinks form around the world. Year 9 had a fantastic day and enjoyed the picnic of selected foods from around the world.

7 minute workout

On Thursday of this week Year 9 took part in the 7 minute workout. As a school, we like to promote a healthy active lifestyle and encourage our students to keep active and fit. Students worked together to take on the fitness challenge. This event was also used as a fundraiser for Project Week programmes. Well done to all those involved. Check out the photos.

Global Classroom

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, in 2016 Nord Anglia is challenging its students from around the world to read, memorise, practice and recite a famous speech from one of Shakespeare’s plays.

Students will then create a short single take video of your performance, which will be uploaded to the Global Campus to be shared with other students around the world and entered into a competition across the family of schools, which will be judged by Shakespearean experts. There are two different categories for the competition, and we cannot wait to see some of your performances! Good luck everyone!

Student Excellence

Four students travelled to Kellet School in Hong Kong to take part in the U13 Fobisia Games. Julien, Victoria, Alistair and Amelia celebrated numerous victories on the track and the playing fields. The team was extremely successful and won 27 medals on the track, 9 in the pool, bronze in girls’ football, silver in boys’ football and bronze in boys’ basketball. Find more details of the fantastic achievement of the team in the link below.

International Chess Tournament

Rahul Suresh 9B will be traveling to Bangkok to play an International chess tournament in April. Rahul is an excellent chess player and we wish him luck in the tournament.

A view from the classroom


Year 9 scripted and presented a talk show based on the characters and events in Romeo and Juliet. In the photo are Niccolo Goretti and Thomas Wallace as the talk show hosts, Ayaan as Prince Escalus, and Rahul, Valerie and Rianne as members of the Capulet and Montague families. They presented an excellent account of the recent event in Verona and of the Prince’s attempts to keep the peace in the troubled city. An additional highlight was the hosts’ hilarious introduction at the beginning – they could have a career in TV presenting!


Year 9 Geography students have been exploring issues to do with globalisation. We have started by exploring our own position as global citizens and how we are all connected to the rest of the world. Students have assessed the extent to which they live "global lives". This includes our food, our music, our movies and even our clothes. Before the holiday we considered perceptions of globalisation: is it a positive or a negative or both? We looked at the media and at cartoons from anti-globalisation groups but we also considered how we all enjoy a frappucino or watching movies! Right now we are all researching individual trans-national corporations. Some are looking at Nike, others at Apple or Walmart or Coca Cola or H&M. We are acting as journalists to find both the positives and negatives that these companies might bring. We have learned about sweat-shops and environmental issues and are starting to draw conclusions about our own opinions....
