A Sense of Place by Year 9

Today year 9 took the art classroom outside. The students are doing some direct observational drawings for their new project “A Sense of Place”. The students used viewfinders to select an area of interest to draw, then set their timers to do quick studies in only 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute. This exercise helped the students to focus on shape and form before moving on to doing their more detailed drawings. It’s always a challenge drawing from life instead of a photo but this method brings energy and originality to the art we create.

Year 7 Parachute Challenge

As part of the forces and motion section of the year 7 course we were investigating how the size and shape of a parachute determined how quickly it falls. Various shapes were tested but the equilateral triangle performed the best. Three cords performed better than four. Threading the cords onto the parachutes was a fairly tricky task!

Welcome Back Secondary!

After many months of 'online teaching' we are finally opened! As the first school in Songkhla, we are not only privileged, but excited having our students back.

On Friday 28 August at 2pm, Bloomsbury's executives welcomed His Excellency Fachry Sulaiman, the Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia in Songkhla, and Madam Evariana Sulaiman, his wife, to celebrate the graduation of their daughter, Miss Siti Nadhira Sulaiman.

Welcome Back Old and New Secondary Students!

Today, we reopened our doors to welcome all Secondary students 'only' in order to keep social distancing. There were temperature and travel history checks near our school field followed by morning registrations. Social distancing was observed throughout the day - in the classrooms, in meals, and even during breaks. It's good to see everyone in Secondary once again after a long break.
