Open Evening 2019 Showcases the Best at...

On Thursday 19th September 2019 BMS held our annual Open Evening.  While Mr Turner (Executive Principal) was delivering his speeches to the parents in the main hall (assisted by the Head Boy – Ben Garrett and one of our new Year 7 students – NAME) I was the lucky one who had the privilege to wander around the school site and witness the wonderful things that were taking place.  Staff spent a lot of time preparing their classrooms and faculty areas in order to showcase the very best of what their subject has to offer and and this led to a fantastic event.  The school looked marvellous, the activities set up for guests were fun and this created a lovely atmosphere across the school.

Staff were ably assisted by student leaders from Years 7-13 and it was fantastic to see so many students from Bushey Meads School give up their evening to come and help.  This shows the passion our students have for their subjects and the positive ethos that exists at Bushey Meads School.

As always, my favourite part of the evening was watching the prospective Year 6 students, their younger siblings and parents participate in the many interactive activities on offer.  Such examples included making circuit boards in technology, painting in art, using computer controlled robotics in IT, playing a variety of instruments in music, watching dance routines trampolining and drama productions in, taking part in penalty shootouts in PE, building pasta and marshmallow towers in geography, using microscopes and bunsen burners in science and much more.

I hope the photos do the event justice and I am already looking forward to the 2020 Open Evening.
