Raspberry Pi
raspberry_photo.jpg As you will have heard at Speech Day, our Junior Group pupils have been helping our visitors from Peking University Elementary School to build computers. We are aiming to have our Raspberry Pi classroom set up and running next week, indeed it is already a vastly transformed space and the pupils who have testing the workstations report that the Pi computers are great fun. If you haven't heard of these tiny computers, they are revolutionising education around the world. They are designed in the UK, produced by a charity aiming to ensure children learn skills beyond just using software, and produced in South Wales. We will be using them to teach our pupils programming skills, which are highly requested by Universities for courses connected to technology.
 
Ski Trip 2013 update

image_5.jpeg

The girls have had great fun so far on the slopes. The weather is very warm and the skiing conditions are excellent. After their morning lessons they enjoyed a few fun snow fights!

By the evenings, despite being tired they have been taking advantage of the activities on offer: swimming, dancing, etc.  As well as relaxing in their rooms.

The girls are loving the lessons. Everyone is being pushed and challenged.   Some have really surprised their teachers with their ski abilities.
