The International Buffet, generously provided by our parents, is always one of the highlights of the day, and this year we have a new record of 27 different countries with tables.
I look forward to seeing many parents on the day, and hope that you can also join us for one of our two assemblies, taking place from 8:15 – 8:50 (Key Stage 3) and 1:55 – 2:30 (Key Stages 4 and 5).
Air Quality Update
The AQI was very high again this morning. As in our Air Quality Policy, we monitor the AQI at all times, with 12 AirVisual air monitoring devices, inside and outside, across Primary and the High School.
This morning we moved some Period 2 PE and Swimming lessons inside, as the AQI was approaching 200 at 9 am and did not allow students to play outside during break. By 10:20, however, the AQI was starting to fall and so Period 3 PE and Swimming lessons were back outside, but with “more breaks and less intense activities” as in our policy. As it also says in our policy, these limits/restrictions are based on the US Government’s Outdoor Activity Guidance for Schools.
At break and lunchtimes, it is important to remember that all High School students always have access to the Shared Areas and the Library during breaks and lunchtimes, and to the Sports Hall during lunchtimes.
You can see data from our public AirVisual device here, but please remember that AirVisual delay reporting data from public devices and that it is our live data that we use to make all decisions about student activities.
