World Music Day 2016

World Music day was great fun, and consisted of three activities. One of my favourites was signing tropical Calypso style music, from Trinidad. Music from the Caribbean is associated with carnivals, festival and celebration. It is light hearted, fun and cheerful, with witty lyrics.  The style Calypso uses acoustic or bass guitar and sometimes some soft percussion.

Year 7 Bushcraft Camp Report

Year 7 Bushcraft Camp Report

Bushcraft camp was really enjoyable and we learnt a lot from it. As well as bushcraft skills such as making fires, building shelters, sleeping outside and camouflage, the week was focused on Risk-taking. There was nothing we were forced to do, but trying everything meant we could gain a lot of experience.
