- GLOBAL LIBRARY - Prizes to be won! Last term we awarded certificates of achievement to students who completed five or more quizzes in the Global Library, and a £25 Amazon gift voucher to those who had completed more than ten. This term, we want to recognise students whose interest and participation in the Global Library has grown the most. We will therefore be looking at visits to the online Library, the number of times quizzes have been attempted, and participation in forums. Winners will be shortlisted in early April.
- DEBATE LEAGUE - Round 3 is live, please remember to have main arguments posted in the next week or so to allow enough time for rebuttals.
- HEALTHY RECIPE BOOK - The Global Campus Primary Healthy recipe book is now live on the Primary Health area and will be shared with the school community via the school website. This included all entries to the Health forum before the deadline at the end of 2015. There are so many interesting recipes from all over the world. There is now a padlet for students to post photos of their attempts at trying other recipes, or posting new recipes of their own. Well done to all those who submitted a recipe!
