A new academic year and a new set of enrichment activities in Senior School. 
Exciting times in Senior with self defence, film club, book club, dodge ball, spoken word and card making for the very first time! The students will be able to switch round activities at half term to give them an even broader and wider curriculum.

Cyprus Geography and Science Fieldwork Trip

Tue, 11/04/2017 - 11:39 -- Lydia Makram

After many years of attempting to get this trip off the ground, we were finally successful in delivering an excellent trip. The students stayed in a small village 500 metres above sea level to practise a variety of fieldwork skills, ranging from river studies to coastal ecology. The weather was varied with even a short spell of hail stones on our first fieldwork day. The students loved the rock climbing activity where everyone climbed at least 10 metres on a rock face.

Five of the BSA students recently participated in the prestigious COBIS Global Debating competition. This year’s competition took place in Marbella, Spain. Over the two days of intense debating, students delivered eloquent speeches on motions including:

'This House Believes in an era of post-truth politics governance derived from popular elections is fundamentally flawed.'
'This House Believes that individuals with self-inflicted injuries should forfeit the right to indiscriminate access to universal healthcare.' and

Cooking Club in Senior School

Wed, 22/02/2017 - 13:55 -- Lydia Makram

The Cooking Club will be taking over the Prep School Canteen next half term and in preperation we asked Year 4 students to be our taste testers for the afternoon. Students in Y4 were given a sample menu from the club's repotoire - BBQ Chicken, Quasadeillas, Apple Rings and Pizza Doughnuts and asked to rate the different dishes. They were also asked to give some suggestions of the kind of food they would like in their canteen. The afternoon was good fun and we appreciated the feedback from the students.

Year 7 Alexandrian History Trip

Tue, 21/02/2017 - 12:30 -- Lydia Makram
Last week Year 7 students went on a history trip in Alexandria. The students were treated to a wealth of inside knowledge and expertise about the city in which they were born, starting with the famous Catacombs and Pompey's Pillar and finishing with the Odium Tiny. The students were extremely impressive and our tour guide commented that they were one of the best groups she had ever had in terms of level of questioning, participation and behaviour. Well done Year 7!

Year 7 Residential Trip at the Iberotel

Sun, 23/10/2016 - 08:49 -- Lydia Makram

The students were challenged with team work activities ranging from the sand castle competition to the minefield challenge which promoted communication skills and memory. They also consolidated their map and fieldwork skills on the beach and round the pool. I am sure they have bonded more as a year group and this will help them to settle even better into the Senior School.
