Our Year 7 students were busy bees during their enrichment sessions last week, making eco-friendly lip balm from beeswax, olive oil and coconut oil.

As well as learning about the historical and cultural significance of working with bees around the world, students considered the health benefits of bee-related products – with their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Students also explored the array of hygiene and household products that can be made from natural products such as vinegar, lemon, olive oil and baking soda.

Although students could not take their product away with them, the balm has been re-constituted to make a hand balm and is subsequently on sale for staff to buy with proceeds going to Avon Wildlife Trust.

Let there bee zero waste!!

Our young eco-representatives also met during the summit week to consolidate their findings from the 6-week long eco-review of the school. With ten themes to tackle, the Junior School is focusing on health, living and water themes and the Senior School is focusing on the remaining themes.

Early indications suggest we have some action to take in reducing our energy consumption across the school and dealing with all aspects of the waste we produce. A full account of our eco-review will be available later this term when all ten themes have been addressed. Action planning has begun!

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Ollie signs for the Bears!

Huge congratulations to Mark who has joined the top 2% of the population as a member of Mensa. In typical modest fashion, Mark sat the test on a recent weekend and didn't mention it to any of his teachers!

Mark joins Mensa!

As well as being Head of Religion and Philosophy, Zak leads our digital vision. He was instrumental in developing our excellent online learning offering during lockdown, much to the relief of our parents, and is now leading the roll out of our school device programme.

Black History is British History and British History is Black History

120 Peer supporters and their Year 8 groups went to Belmont wood last week, where they took part in a range of activities.

Marshmallows and Peer Support!

Since joining the school, we have been constantly amazed by the support and kindness given by the teachers, staff and other pupils and, above all, by the injection of fun that infiltrates throughout whether they're playing sport, completing a science project and participating in a school play.  No doubt there will be challenges ahead but we're confident the school will provide the support and guidance that has our sons' best interests at heart.
