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
Year 7 Scholars enjoyed some literal stretch and challenge on the Low Ropes Course at Failand on Friday. The course offers a variety of physical challenges and the emphasis is very much on teamwork and good communication. Year 7 Scholars impressed greatly with their agility on the ropes and obstacles and especially in the strategies they developed to plan how to cross the barriers successfully.
Director of Outdoor Education Kelly Murphy commented: ‘This was a challenging course even for high-attaining pupils. They did brilliantly and had a lot of fun along the way, as the photos show.’
