Remember, remember our extra-curricular clubs in November

During lunchtimes and after school there is a wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities ranging from sports to a variety of subject related sessions.

In the SCIENCE CLUB last week, students in Years 7 and 8 took part in a series of experiments to make indoor fireworks and sparklers. This included discovering the reasons why chlorides burn different colours. Under the safe supervision our of Science teachers, students were able to experiment as they created their own firework display. The Science Club takes place every Thursday after school and new students are welcome to join anytime.

The full timetable extra-curricular clubs and activities is available on the link below and has been shared with students via the Show My Homework app.

Below is additional information about some of the new and exciting clubs that have started this academic year.
