Similarly, our Secondary class teachers have been working hard for the past two weeks to deliver their lessons online. Here are a few photos of their online teaching.
Secondary students recently came back from an educational trip to the capital of Thailand, Bangkok. The main purpose of the visit was for students to gain an insight into further education by attending the Study UK Educational Fair, where universities from the United Kingdom were offering lectures and advise to students about the variety of courses they had on offer.
On Wednesday 23rd October 2019, boarding and a number of secondary students went on a trip to Pa Phayom's Roywan Farm Stay in Phattalung. It was a great opportunity for the students to observe various scenes in nature - forest, mountains, river, water falls, farm and more.
By pouring a known volume of water over known masses of different soil samples, Year 7 investigated water drainage. Over 15 minutes, they recorded the volume of water that was able to pass through the soil, into the measuring cylinder below. Our next lesson will involve investigating the volume of air in the same soil samples.
Students from the Young Entrepreneurs programme presented their latest developments to the rest of secondary in this week’s assembly. The teams are ‘Eats and Treats’ and ‘Novagem’ in Year 9 followed by ‘Cook Cookie’ and ‘Bubble Blooms’ in Year 10. The teams have been developing their products since October with just one hour per week during ECA time. Eats and Treats have sourced a supplier, conducted market research and made sales whilst Novagem have spent considerable time developing an exciting new board game. Cook Cookie have focussed on their branding whilst Bubble Blooms have been developing their new drinks to get the flavours just right.
With the crowd in good spirits, Mr Andrew Elliot, the school Principal reminded the secondary students of how events such as the school's Sports Day are driven by Bloomsbury's guiding statements. Physical fitness (which is promoted via sports and PE occasions) is regarded as an essential life skill, and the teamwork and shared purpose potential of participating in Sports Day via Bloomsbury's house system represents an important way in which the school value statement that encourages a sense of pride in belonging to the school community, of loyalty, of unity and of shared purpose can be realised.
