Forms 4/5/6 Mini Triathlon – 12 October 2016

20 girls from Forms 4, 5 and 6 took part in the Brownlee Foundation Mini Triathlon at the Park Club on 12 October.

This was an amazing opportunity for everyone as the event was being hosted by Alistair and Jonny Brownlee. These supremely talented brothers are the most successful triathletes of the modern era with Alistair having won gold medals at the last two Olympic Games.

The Brownlee Foundation is committed to giving children all over the UK a positive sporting experience and supporting the development of coaches and teachers in sport.

The girls got to experience all three disciplines starting in the pool. After the swim, a quick transition and they were onto the bikes for two laps around the grounds of the Park Club. The finale was a one lap run of the course. As the competitors crossed the finish line they were presented with a well-deserved medal and goody bag.

The highlight of the afternoon was having a photo with Jonny Brownlee as the team wore their medals with pride.

Well done to the competitors and a big thank you to all the parents who came to support.

Global Goals

By | All School News

During the week of 18th September 2016, CBPPS took part in the ‘World’s Largest Lesson’, to support the United Nations’ 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. These ambitious goals aim to achieve three extraordinary things in the next 15 years: to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and fix climate change. This year’s focus is on gender equality. The Form Six girls presented the 17 goals during assembly and children learnt more about these goals in their P.S.H.E. lessons.

Year 2 Boys – Forest Outing

By | All School News

What do eating ants’ eggs, stripping stinging nettles and building wooden dens have in common? They were all amongst the activities enjoyed by the Year 2 Boys on their recent Leaver’s outing to Alice Holt Forest.

Under the captivating guidance of our survival expert Nigel, the boys were taught a range of woodland skills as they hiked through the forest. These included locating and handling a variety of woodland creatures, identifying and distinguishing edible plants from poisonous plants, and making use of the natural properties of various trees and weeds (such as making cordage from nettle stalks!). The session concluded with a team-bonding exercise as the boys built wooden dens, before rewarding themselves by roasting marshmallows over a fire.

The trip proved to be a very enriching experience, with the children delighting in the fascinating facts and survival tips they picked up and practised throughout the day. Forest walks in future will never be the same again!
