A huge thank you to @profbrucehood for yesterday's engaging #STEM talk on 'The Science of Happiness' and for sharing his #HappinessHacks with us. Delighted to have welcomed pupils from other local schools to enjoy Prof Hood's talk. #BGSLearning #BGSSTEM #BeyondtheClassroom https://t.co/omGyngNuQP
Last night’s Battle of the Bands featured the cream of BGS’s rock and pop bands. After an opening number from the BGS staff band, complete with a new recruit on guitar – BGS Headmaster, Mr Barot – the competition began.
The audience was treated to brilliant performances from every act, with pupils from Year 7 through to Upper Sixth taking to the stage. Congratulations to the winners and well done to everyone who took part – you gave our judges, former BGS student Hannah Khan and pop session vocalist Ruth Royall, a really tricky task.
Best Junior Band: Frostbyte – Edward, Adi and Bert (Year 7)
Best Senior Band: Now There Are Three – Marcus, Jamie and Ellie (Upper Sixth)
Best Instrumentalist: Jackson, drums (Year 10)
Best Vocalist: Joint winners – Marcus (Upper Sixth), Tash (Upper Sixth) and Katy (Year 10)
A huge thank you also to everyone who came along to support the event – thanks to sales of tickets and refreshments, the event raised more than ever before for charity (this year's event was in aid of Surfers Against Sewage).
