Smashing time had by all at Sixth Form Induction
We were delighted to welcome back our year 11 students to their Sixth Form Induction days. The students enjoyed two days of a variety of activities, including an introductory lesson to the subjects they will be studying from September, team building activities, presentational skills and careers guidance. A particular favourite was the annual ‘Egg Drop Challenge’ where in a Montsaye-first, eight teams’ eggs survived multiple falls from the sixth form balcony!
Senior Vice-Principal Mr Baria, who helped to run the activity, said “I have been very impressed with level of creativity and teamwork shown by the students. With some limited resources they have come up with some great solutions using their critical thinking and problem solving skills. The skills developed on this task will certainly help them in their future endeavours.”
The event ended with the ever-popular quiz, with ‘The Great, Supine, Protoplasmic, Invertebrate Jellies’ being crowned the winners with a fantastic 45 points out of 50.
We were impressed by their positivity, enthusiasm and readiness to learn and get involved in all lessons and activities. The Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Jones, said “I was pleased to see so many of our students with such great attitudes and aspirations. I am looking forward to helping them to achieve their goals and to settle them into sixth form life at Montsaye Academy in September’.
