Leadership

The L4 have been doing some environment projects, with prizes awarded for the most imaginative and the most practical.

L4 RA won the practical prize with an idea to turn the energy produced on the ergos and the spinning machines into power which could be used in the Dance and Fitness Centre. L4 HR won the prize for an imaginative idea with their window boxes in which they would grow flowers and salad vegetables. The girls did presentations on their ideas, which were judged by Environment Prefect Camille, who awarded the prizes in assembly.

Day gives girls opportunity to 'Think Maths'

Headington held a 'Think Maths Day' on Wednesday 11th October with a variety of Maths-themed activities taking place.

The U3 and L4 had a talk from Dr Katie Steckles entitled “Shapes and Smoke Rings” which they found very entertaining yet thought provoking. This was followed by workshops where they created their own dodecahedrons using origami techniques and investigated Mobius Bands which they found fascinating and enjoyable.

Read Grace's report below about what was available for the older girls.
