MYP students learned about drugs and addictions with Mr Bob Tait

On Tuesday the 18th of February, our MYP students learned about drugs and addictions with Mr Bob Tait, a guest speaker from the UK, who has a wealth of experience in delivering presentations to young people. The main aim of the presentation was to raise student awareness of drug misuse and to give them the facts needed to make an informed choice about drugs, both during their school life and as an adult. 

Some of our students were given the opportunity to try the Fatal Vision Goggles. These goggles allowed the students to experience the effects of alcohol, marijuana, a concussion, or drowsy or distracted driving firsthand.

Science demonstration: Ice and the gases

Year 5 were treated to a Science demonstration from Paul, in the Science lab. He spoke to them about dry ice and the gases involved in the making of it. He then showed them how it worked and they were able to touch the smokey gases and bubbles that were made. During this lesson, the children also investigated friction. They had to move jelly cubes, with chopsticks, from one plate to another and then discover whether it was trickier when covered with oil! A lot of fun was had by all and the children then went back to class to write up the investigation and record their findings.

St Valentine's party

Last week the students had their St Valentine's party and it was good to see that they enjoyed themselves. There were the usual group of 'full time' dancers who danced throughout the evening and some new members to the group. The students had dinner at the party and they all seemed to have a lot of fun! The next big party to organise is the end of year ball!
