Biology Challenge, Arts Award and Enviromonday

3rd Year Blog

On Monday Third Years spent Period three with their Form Tutors. We listened to their Enterprise presentations, discussed Enviromonday, watched a Ted Talk from Greta Thunberg and completed the national competition below. We then had the Founders’ Day service on Tuesday, where the boys were accompanied by their Form Tutors and the First and Second Years at St Mary’s Church for the annual service. This was a great celebration which was enjoyed by all! The final assembly of the year was held on Thursday and the boys have enjoyed the final day of term in mufti.

This is the final Third Year Blog of the academic year 2018-19. The Third Year team would like to thank all the Third Year Form tutors and boys for their hard work and dedication this year. Well done everyone, we hope you have a very enjoyable and relaxing summer holiday!

EnviroMonday

Here is a list of activities/events that happened on EnviroMonday:

  • Well done to all those who travelled sustainably to school!
  • Cycle cinema – Wall-E played in the Hammond Foyer. The only catch was that students had to power the film by cycling on the bikes. This brought in a big crowd!
  • Meat free lunch was provided – the single biggest way that someone can reduce their carbon footprint.
  • Cut down on waste at lunch. The boys made considerable efforts to eat everything that was put on their plate.
  • The boys entered the national competition to design a new electric car charging point that will be placed all around the country. QR code below

  • And most importantly, the boys were asked – what one change are you going to make to have an impact on the environment?

Arts Award

Congratulations to the following boys who passed the Silver Arts Award and will hence receive a qualification which is equivalent to an additional GCSE.
