On September 13th 2012, 22 students and 4 teachers went to an activity centre in the South of England. There was a range of activities available everyday from swinging off a giant swing to mountain biking and archery. All of the activities required a high level of communication and teamwork. Our students involved themselves in every activity and worked well together. They were inclusive of all members of the group and the teachers took part also.
Year 7 have been learning all about Ancient Rome, in particular its impact on life in Egypt. As an ending to this unit of work, we went on a trip to see some of the Roman influences in Alexandria.
Tim Loveless, a resident of Alexandria, came to visit the Year 11 History class last Monday to deliver a seminar on forensic photography. Tim is one of the most eminent people in his field of expertise and took the photographs that have been used as evidence to support the cases against Mladic and Karadzic who are accused of genocide at Srebrenica.
