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

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.

“It only takes three letters,” I thought to myself. “Why can’t I just come up with my own?” You can’t blame thirteen-year-old me for thinking that way. After all, Newton had done it with F = ma and Einstein had done it with E = mc^2. I wasn’t planning on coming up with the theory of…Details
“On Friday the 22nd of April in honour of International Earth Day our prefect team decided to plant a tree to raise awareness of environmental issues both local and global. The idea was spontaneously generated after one of our lessons, with great support of our teacher Mr Ward. The prefect team took action immediately, getting…Details
Imagine turning on the TV to see politicians and their worshippers rallying to deny you some of the most basic human rights. From the moment I landed in England two years ago, I had been trying to detach myself from my Egyptian Islamic culture. I didn’t want to be an outcast. I didn’t want to…Details

After a week of being back at the college, A-level pupils set out for their IELTS examinations at Rugby. A coach ride at dawn preceded the test. Having hopefully revised their materials over the spring break pupils were still understandably somewhat nervous as to what the day might bring for them. Would the reading comprehension…Details
During the month of March Saint Michael’s prefect team organized a treasure hunt for the pupils. Working from a map and following clues, pupils in their House teams hunted down ‘treasures’ placed strategically all around the campus. Sunday night was deemed to be the optimum moment. It was dark and prefects were placed at certain…Details
In March there was also an excursion to Lisbon for the ISSA Basketball tournament. Heading towards the Southern European sun was something our basketball team were looking forward to. It was 18 degrees Celsius and yet it still rained. There did not seem to be many people on the roads. Most people could not speak…Details
In March, pupils from Saint Michael’s visited Iceland along with Geography teachers Mr. Warren and Mrs Peacock. They spent a good few days exploring the country with its embarrassment of geographical riches: lakes, volcanoes, thermal baths and waterfalls. Over to Binh L, Riva F. and Mr. Warren for an account of a memorable excursion. Binh:…Details
