Secondary Trashion Show 2015

September 14, 2015

Ruth Young, our Secondary Principal, writes: “This week, in Secondary, I have been visiting classrooms across all curriculum areas and I have been so proud to witness some key moments in our students’ learning journeys. Be it in mathematical treasure hunts around school, using the latest technology to create a presentation about enthalpy, or students creating a mimed play depicting a disaster at a hair salon, one element that was consistently present was sheer enthusiasm from both teachers and pupils. Our carefully-designed ECA programme also started last week and I was able to tour and hear about activities such as Model United Nations, World Scholars Cup, Arts and Crafts and Philosophy. I cannot wait for the first editions of our TV news and newspaper later this semester! The week culminated with what only can be described as the most creative fashion show I have ever seen. Taylor House were runaway winners with all of their costumes centred around the theme of Alice in Wonderland. Seeing Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat brought to life using recycled material will stay with me forever. However, Edwards and Walters were snapping at their heels with themed creations from the Hunger Games, classic rock and fairytales. I would like to thank all the students and staff in all three Houses for their hard work and effort with the planning and execution of the event which made it such a success. It was fantastic to see a number of parents on Friday morning attending the Trashion Show and supporting their child’s House as well as soaking up the fun, competitive spirit that filled the auditorium. Photos of the event are already on our Facebook page, so everyone can see the fun filled event which ended our third week at Bromsgrove.”
