Year 8 Sushi Making
This week year 8 students have been mastering the art of sushi making.
This focussed practical task is part of a unit where students learn more about nutritionally balanced meals by researching the history and importance of the Bento box in Japanese culture.
Well done for such technically precise work!
Year 8 Theatre Trip to &Juliet
On the 8 March, year 8 were lucky enough to go on a trip to the Shaftesbury Theatre to see ‘& Juliet’. It was a fun and interesting musical and we were so grateful to have been taken to see it by our English teachers.
The play had an interesting mix of modern day props and speech and old-fashioned terms and clothing. An example of this was when a grand ball was held in the style of a club with DJs playing modern music but with 17th century dress (although it was slightly updated).
Another great part of the musical was that all the songs were quite modern, with music from the late 1990s, 2010s and more recent ones from 2022. Everyone enjoyed singing along to songs by the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears and this made it an enjoyable and accessible experience.
As well as this, 8th March was International Women’s Day so the performance felt fitting as it was all about empowering women, with Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare’s wife, insisting on rewriting the show so that Juliet made choices for herself. There was also a lot of representation for the LGBTQ+ community making it a very inclusive play. Overall, it was a very happy and representative production which I would recommend everyone went to see.
And we all ate cake..,
On Tuesday night the sixth form held 'The CSG Charity Bake Off' with 10 contestants whipping up an amazing array of cakes, which helped raise £233 for the two charities supported by the senior prefect team: Refugee Point and End FGM European Network.
Congratulations to Skye and Daisy, our winners; their cake was both beautiful to look at and scrumptious tasting.
We would like to thank:
Giles Coren and Will Hawkins our judges, for their time, expertise and wit; the bakers for their dedication and passion; all the students and parents who attended and gave so generously, and the sixth form senior prefect team for organising the event.
A big thank you also to Kossoffs Bakery and the Owl bookshop for their prize donations.
Indoor Carboot sale is tomorrow - Saturday 11 March 2.30pm - 4.30pm!

Come find some bargain treasures and support our school - Vintage, china, vinyl, clothes, toys and lots of cake.

We are about to start preparing our Year 9 and 10 students (59 of them) for their expedition which they have to undertake in June. We have as a school been awarded some money to help buy equipment but it is never enough.
Another school has offered to give us some of their old equipment which while serviceable is getting battered.
Do you have any old equipment we might be able to put to good use? We are particularly looking for the following items:
Rucksacks Size 45 litres up to about 65 litres. Big enough to carry two days clothing tents sleeping bags etc
Sleeping bags, preferably either down or a mix of down and man-made fibre which roll up small, 2 season or 3 season bags would be ideal
Sleeping mats, foam or inflatable mattresses.
Waterproofs, both tops and bottoms
We are buying tents that are all the same size which allows us to get replacement parts easily but if you have 2 or 3 person tents we wouldn't say no.
Gas burning cooking stoves are also good.
Should you have any of this sort of equipment lying around in search of a new home just let me know and I will arrange a pickup.
Alternatively drop it off in school and I will find somewhere to store it, check it out and organise any repairs that are necessary.
