Assuming that each programme is represented by 800m race, all students in Years 9-13 are now at different stages of the race.
Years 11 and 13 students are slowly entering the last 200m, hopefully having preserved energy for the last sprint towards their finish line – May/June exams. They have all ran well so far, and are ready to complete the race, some with better times than others. Some of the students are even set to achieve times that are close to the world record.
Years 10 and 12 students are just about to complete the first lap of the race, most of them are moving at the right pace, but some have moved a bit slower and are trying now to catch up. A couple of students have sprinted during the first lap, and have realised that they need to slow down, otherwise they might burn out before reaching the finish line.
In the meantime, Year 9 students are getting ready to start their first ever 800m race, discussing their IGCSE subject choices and best strategies for success during such a race. Key Stage 2 and Years 7-8 students are training for their future 800m races by completing shorter distance running, whilst learning the fundamentals that will make them successful.
We would like to wish our students all the best during different stages of their educational journeys.
We believe that the teaching and learning at TBS Warsaw as well as our pastoral programme prepare our students well to be knowledgeable, resilient, persevering and reflective runners, at all stages of their educational pursuit.
