Xmas fair

Christmas is in the air!

As they move up through the school, we are always looking for opportunities for our students to take the lead. One such opportunity was provided by changes to this year’s Christmas Fair. Usually, our Christmas Fair is one of the seasonal highlights with families and friends, guests and visitors all coming to enjoy the festivities. However, this year, restrictions led to a re-think.

Instead, students in our Senior School were tasked with running the fair, alongside a select group of parent volunteers who manned the Winter Market.

From Santa in his grotto to the games in the gym; from Christmas crafts in the dance suite to musical performances in the atrium, students were given the green light to step into the shoes of our hard-working teachers in running the event. Of course, this didn’t mean teachers sat back with a Christmas cookie and a cup of hot chocolate - scaffolding the experience and guiding students to make good decisions is part of the role, and the whole school – from marketing to admin, IT to finance – was on hand to support them and help set-up the event.

With each tutor group choosing two activities to run, there was plenty for our younger students  from Early Years and Primary to do when the fair began. Younger students enjoyed trying to get a ring on a reindeer’s antlers and older ones couldn’t resist the radio-controlled racetrack that took up half the gym! Of course, if the excitement got to be too much, there were some calming Christmas crafts available before going for that all-important photo with Santa - all whilst listening to one of our student bands rock out in the atrium.

All of this good work was for a good cause, with Hopeful Hearts the beneficiaries of a 15,000 rmb donation raised by our students’ efforts.

Finally, in the spirit of Christmas this newsletter really does have something for everyone in the senior school as Mr Gale, looks at Computational Thinking and how this approach to problem-solving is embedded throughout our curriculum, Mr Geary accesses how our Year 10 students have made the step up to IGCSEs and Mrs Witt-Williams looks at our Sixth-Formers. Finally, Dr Emmerton asks that we all raise a glass to scientists whose work has made us safer… and hopefully inspired the next generation of scientists at BSN.

I hope all our families have a wonderful Christmas Break – see you in 2021!
