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.
On Thursday 28th April our Year 9 students visited some of the most famous World War Two battle sites and gained invaluable insight into the significance of the Battle of El Alamein to the Allied war effort. Furthermore, the students furthered their understanding of the role of Egyptian soldiers in this famous battle. The trip was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the students were very respectful during the visit to the cemeteries and museum.
The students investigated about litter, traffic and building quality around Kafr Abdou and Horreya street to see if there are any patterns. The enquiry certainly raised many issues and some possible solutions for the future environment of the area.

The students practiced their questionnaire skills and land use mapping around the shopping centre for the first time. The next stage is to use the data to prove or disprove our hypotheses. It should make for interesting research when it is completed.

Congratulations and well done everyone!
The wet and windy weather is giving the students a great opportunity to collect and record lots of data for their investigation over the next couple of weeks. Lets hope they get some valid data to make for an interesting analysis.
