If you went up to the Common Room on Saturday you would have been confronted by a room festooned with balloons, rose petals, hearts, decorations and other accessories for the annual Valentine’s Day Disco. There was a lot of dancing, with good music played by ace DJs Martin and Nashm. Mostly upbeat, thumping rhythms were…Details

Exploring Soil Erosion
Environmental Science students investigated the factors that affect soil erosion and explored the effectiveness of different methods to prevent and reduce soil erosion, including: the replication of vegetation cover using leaves and grass; terracing using plasticene and windbreaks using stones. The results showed that the methods all prevent soil erosion, but the most effective was maintaining vegetation cover. This has additional advantages as it prevents wind erosion as well as erosion by rain. It also has other advantages as people can use vegetation to provide food and timber. Reported by Derin
Continuing Professional Development
Last weekend's fun included a trip to Brighton, where the students enjoyed exploring the famous landmarks and museums and had a ride on the British Airways i360 tower #don'tlookdown!
Intermediate Mathematical Challenge
Throughout this term, students have been applying themselves to different maths challenges to extend and challenge their knowledge. Most recent of these challenges took place on the 7th February when a small group sat the Intermediate Mathematical Challenge, which is a one hour test for students from G1 and G2. The Challenge is organised by United Kingdom Mathematics Trust (UKMT) based at Leeds University and are designed to be lively, intriguing, multiple choice question papers, which stimulate interest in maths. Later this term, G1 students will be taking part in a team maths challenge; working together to solve problems set by AMSP.

Sharing 50 Years of King's Group
What a day to go to Cardiff! A little peaceful shopping perhaps? A jaunt around the celebrated castle ruins and reflection upon medieval times? Not on this day, anyway. Yes, we could go shopping, yes we could go around the castle, but our attention was drawn principally by the feel of carnival around us. Drummers…Details
We arrived late afternoon and noticed how different it was from the UK before even getting off the plane. It had been a while since we’d last seen the sun still shining after 5 p.m. The ride over to the hotel had us gawking at the marvelous city. Seeing Madrid made me realize that love…Details

by Frista & Alina This term we are practicing contemporary dance. This is a style of expressive dance combining elements of several dance genres, including Modern Jazz, Lyrical, and Classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. There are around 15 of us taking part and we…Details
Liverpool When we arrived in Liverpool, we did a little shopping before finding a great restaurant for some lunch. Horrible football – I’m joking of course – to those Liverpool fans. We noticed the streets were made from a weird material, they were very different to Peruvian roads. We also saw some extremely good architecture and…Details
This was our first stop on our trip to the north of England. After a three hour journey we disembarked from the coach, picked up our tickets and lanyards to hang around our neck as evidence that we were bona fide visitors. We waited a while in the café before making our way through the…Details
One final tradition took place of the last lunchtime of the year. Christmas fare was served to one and all by Mr. Higgins, in full Father Christmas attire, and Mrs Hall giving support to our new chef Mr Astley (elf for the day). Students were treated to a medley of festive songs, even making their…Details
It was great. The weather seemed a little grim but added to the romantic image of ‘Foggy Albion’ with street lamps . There were lots of Christmas decorations and a seasonal market on the South Bank of the Thames. Crowds packed Oxford Street and Leicester Square. A host of runaway Santas gave voice to carols…Details
As Mr. Higgins remarked at the outset, the Carol Celebration is now a tradition at Saint Michael’s dating back ten years. Indeed, A2 pupils arrived eager to give voice to songs they had perhaps first practised in GCSE 1. There was a lot of merry fa-la-la-ing and encouragement to hear herald angels. The Christmas tree…Details
