The Sixth Form have been kept busy in the past couple of weeks with the Governor's lunch, our most recent visit to the Greenford School, the CASathlon and the publication of the Core Collection magazine.
The Staff and Upper Sixth were joined by the Governors for a formal lunch in the Bishop Centre on Tuesday. The event marks the end of the Upper Sixth students’ last full term at school, and as ever, the delicious menu and flowing conversation were a fitting celebration. We thank all the school Governors for joining us and the catering team for their hard work.
The Greenford Link
Tuesday evening saw 14 of our Lower Sixth visiting Greenford High School to get to know some of the boys and girls there.The Greenford Link is a scheme in which sixth-formers from partner schools work together to prepare for their university applications. This week the students had some fun making friends, playing getting-to-know-you games, eating samosas and touring the Greenford School. In May and June, we are looking forward to their students’ return visits to G&L for talks, workshops and a dinner. We are hoping to have an admissions tutor from Cambridge University to talk to us, as well as representatives from other interesting institutions and careers.
G&L’s CASathlon is now in its third year and we held another successful event on Thursday. The triathlon style relay involves teams of ‘athletes’ – both IB students and staff - who each tackle a sprint challenge in either cycling, running or rowing. Each team aims to cover the greatest distance over their combined events, but ultimately the teams’ efforts combine into one grand distance total. This year we clocked up an impressive 10.7km – so we were all feeling very proud of ourselves! But the CASathlon’s success also hinges on all the supporters who come along and get involved too.
Core Collection 2017
We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Core Collection has now been published. Here we present a selection of work that last year’s Upper Sixth IB Students submitted towards the core element of their IB Diploma: the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge and the CAS programme. As ever, we are amazed with the standard of work the students produce and it is a difficult job choosing our pieces each year. We hope you enjoy exploring the publication, finding out more about the elements of the IB Core and marvelling at the standard of work on show.
