Meanwhile Year 9 students were preparing for their trip to Iceland in May. Before they go, Year 12 Tanzania students will be heading to Lake Natron, a new venue for the school, in March.
The Year 13's marked their last 100 days with a Studniowka which was definitely longer and more complex than ever before (thank you, Mr Ormanczyk). The students really had to concentrate and focus hard to get all the different moves right. Such high levels of concentration and focus will, of course, also be needed in their academic studies over the next few months as they prepare for their final IB examinations.
Year 9's are also contemplating their future, with the KS4 information evening next Wednesday for all Year 9 students and parents. Year 9's have been exploring careers in PSHE lessons and getting information about the IGCSE courses in each of their different subjects during this week. On Thursday morning they had an introduction to the new subjects that they could choose next year – Business Studies, Economics and Global Perspectives.
Stephen Dunn from the Juilliard School in New York is always a welcome visitor to school, and he was back with us on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, visiting Music classes and helping our Music department deliver the Juilliard Creative Classroom to our students.
