Anti-Bullying Week

Wed, 14/11/2018 - 11:11 -- Lydia Makram

On Monday 12th November, the children (and adults) in FS, KS1 and KS2 wore odd socks to school to celebrate Anti-Bullying Week! They wore their brightest and most colourful socks! The children attended an anti-bullying workshop which taught them how to say no to bullies and say yes to respecting each other. They decorated a sock to show their understanding of respect and to celebrate being unique.

BSA Friends of School 5th Gala Dinner held at the beginning of October was nothing short of a spectacular success this year and in every way a golden evening. We are very grateful to Her Majesty’s Consul General, Ms Wendy Freeman, for kindly hosting the event in the Consulate Garden.  We also had a very special guest this year, the Egyptian actress, Nada Bassiouny.

Book Week

Mon, 29/01/2018 - 13:53 -- Lydia Makram

Book week 2018 was a hugely successful week which focused on poetry and performance. All children in Prep and Pre-prep learnt a poem by heart, with the older children performing their chosen poem to their year group and, using specific success criteria, assessing each other. Children then voted and the best of each year group recited their poems in our Book Week assemblies. Alongside the recitals, many competitions took place, including ‘guess how many books are in the library’, a design a bookmark competition and an extreme reading photo challenge.

Computer Science Week in Senior School

Mon, 11/12/2017 - 11:36 -- Lydia Makram

Students this week have been using Google Cardboard and VR apps to look at how VR can change our lives and potential uses for it in the future. Students were making 360 walk throughs of where they live and where they come to school. Y10 students gave Y8s a lesson on using BBC Microbit Computers, which was really fun. Students Yassein, Lina, Mohamed, Mariam and Bahira demonstrated good CS knowledge as well as great leadership skills in planning and delivering a lesson using technology new to the BSA.

Thu, 07/12/2017 - 15:05 -- Lydia Makram

In Pre-Prep we had a great International Day! FS1 learnt about Italy and FS2 learnt all about Cambodia by participating in different activities in each class. In KS1, we went all around the world and visited Scotland, the UAE, Australia, England, America, Italy and France! For lunchtime, we had lots of fun and really enjoyed our shared buffet at Heron Campus organised by the FOS.
