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
There was more success for BGS MUN teams at Exeter College this weekend. Representing Kosovo, Mexico and Yemen, some 14 students from Years 10 to the U6 enjoyed a day of proposing resolutions and amendments, lobbying to persuade fellow delegates and speaking in General Assembly.
For a fifth successive year, a BGS team was chosen as Best Delegation. In addition, there were individual committee awards for students as young as Year 10 including Lucas, representing Kosovo on the Security Council, and Jasleen on the Middle East Committee.
BGS MUN Secretary-General Jack commented: ‘This was a very successful and enjoyable day at Exeter College, debating issues as diverse as autonomous vehicles and the Qatar blockade. It was great to retain the shield but also fantastic to see a new generation of students improving their skills and doing so well.’
