by Jessica Abazi The high maintenance girl has no time to hit the snooze button, as soon as the clock strikes 7 it’s time to put on the face for the day. It’s a hobby really, but so much effort and devotion is put into this process that making a public appearance with a bare…Details

There is always a cookery club held on Tuesday and Wednesday during prep. The chef normally plans what we should be cooking but sometimes students just want to cook/bake other things by themselves, for instance a few students will bake a chocolate cake instead of baking cupcakes. The atmosphere in the cookery club is fun, we do enjoy cooking with our friends.

It was a cold-ish day at school but that didn’t stop the Saint Michael’s bus venturing into the open with the destination of Cardiff University of Medicine. The reason – the Science Health exposition and talks.
To conclude, it was an amazing day and I advise anyone that is looking towards applying for any sort of medical course to go!

Talent Show 2017

After lots of hard work we all put into raising around £470 with the Student-Staff football match and the staff carwash, we were granted the long expected NCS Graduation dinner.
The evening started around 6pm. We all got dressed up smartly and made our way to the venue where the NCS staff were waiting to welcome and walk us in. We arrived at the venue and the atmosphere was perfect for us. We were handed our starter cocktails and made our way to our tables.
After a small introduction from the CEO of the school and the marketing managers of the NCS programme, 3 very brave students - Anas, Leonardo and Khoi - gave a small speech about their experience they had on the programme. After the certificates were handed out, it was time for the Disco! The DJ created a dance battle where Todd and Jessica ended up in a tie. Students were able to challenge the winners and we all had so much fun. I personally was walking around with a camera in my hands, visually documenting every moment of the evening.
To conclude, it was a great night and an even greater overall experience when we realised how much fun we had whilst learning a lot of new things. We all did great and look forward to more experiences like this in the future!
NCS Charity Fair
Charity Football Match: Students Vs Staff
Match preview: Comments from staff and students:
This is an event organised by the pupils on the National Citizenship Service. A lot of discussion and preparation has gone into this match to be held this Wednesday. Various members of staff have volunteered their services, in spite of being out of practice in many cases. Housemaster Mr. Glare admitted himself that he has not put boot to leather in a good while. He said however that he feels very fit and ready for the fray.
Pupils are also excited about this event. Stoyan says that he intends to support the teachers.
The match will run simultaneously with a staff car wash outside the Science Block. Those wishing to have their cars clean as a whistle will have to pay £3 for the service. This will go to charity. But “we’re only doing the exterior” added Jessica.
Match afterview: Comments from staff and students:
Through on and off drizzle that slowly soaked both pitch and players, both students and staff looked as though they really enjoyed it. The power seemed to rest with the staff, whilst speed and agility favoured the younger players. Staff and students worked well as a team and a community spirit seemed to be taking root among the spectators. It was all in good cause and funds were collected for charity. Well done to the NCS students who organised it.
The staff Car Wash also went well, with students wielding detergents and hoses and seeming to get quite wet in the process themselves. Many staff drove home in shiny clean vehicles that evening and more money was raised for charity.
