A poster competition also highlighted the causes and effects of bullying in schools and society. One of the main focuses this term is anti-bullying. The School’s counsellors and Careers/PSE teacher have been preparing for anti-bullying week in November.
Finally, on the 26th of October, each class submitted a music video they had been working on over the past few weeks. This was in celebration of creole week with the songs and dances influenced by the creole culture. The School would like to thank the many parents who helped out, and the teachers for dedicating extra time after school and on the weekends to film. The winning classes were: 1st S3-1, 2nd S4-3, 3rd S2-3.
In a bid to defeat the depressing Covid atmosphere and put their skills into practice, the S4 Business class ran a ‘Market Day’ at the school with stalls and games. Students also decorated their classrooms and dressed up for Halloween. They will also be participating in anti-bullying week, including a public speaking competition focused on aspects of bullying, and joining the nation in the upcycled Christmas tree competition. It’s full-steam ahead for the School for the rest of the year.
