This year we had a number of enthusiastic Year 12 and 13 students taking part in the competition, which involved them completing a two-hour written exam paper. The questions posed often stimulate much debate, and enthusiasm for, chemistry – raising awareness of what the subject is all about. It provides a good opportunity to develop some of the skills required for study at university and beyond.
We are extremely pleased with the results that the students have achieved: Clara S, and Nimisha S both achieved a Silver Award; Amy L, Phoebe M, Shriya P, Eleanor C, Anum C, and Fiona S all achieved a Bronze Award. Well done and congratulations to them!
The Book Fairies also made an appearance, hiding new books across the campus for pupils to find and read. Let us know if you found one! #AGGSBookFairies #ibelieveinbookfairies
I Believe in Book Fairies
On World Book Day, Thursday 1st March, to celebrate reading and promote books, the librarians will be organising a Book Fairies Event.
What are Book Fairies?
Book Fairies hide books around the world, every day, for other people to find, read, then leave for the next person. This World Book Day you can get involved too and share your books.
Want to get involved?
- Choose one of your own books that you think someone else might love
- Decorate it with a ribbon (optional)
- Come to the library to get an I Believe in Book Fairies Sticker (from 26th February)
- Hide your book somewhere around school on Thursday 1st March
- We’d love to see what you leave and find so please share your books on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using #AGGSbookfairies and #ibelieveinbookfairies
Give a book a new lease of life this World Book Day and pass it on for someone else to enjoy.
