Pi Day and Red Nose Day at TSIMSFriday, March 22, 2019
With the end of term fast approaching and the students preparing for their Speaking and Listening exams, Thursday was an opportunity for the students to have some fun and mark Pi day at The Grange. Mrs House, our Mathematics teacher organised several Pi (and Pie) based activities, the first being a tutor group challenge, with one representative of each tutor group remembering as many figures of Pi as possible and recalling them in front of the whole school. In the forest classroom Liza, Antony, Cindy Miri and Risako took on this responsibility and all did a great job recalling figures under pressure. The winner was Miri, who managed to remember an astonishing 115. Then the group headed to the Dining Room, where several games of ‘Pie Face’ had been set up. The students were able to play against their friends, but most importantly their teachers with each player donating 50p to charity for a game and hoping not to receive a cream pie to the face.
On Friday it was Red Nose Day and the students were shown videos in tutor time to allow them to understand who their fundraising would benefit. Red Noses were sold in the Dining Room at Break time, with students trying to collect all of the different noses available. At afternoon break and after school, the students enjoyed a selection of treats made by Liza, Linda, Candy, Barbie, Shynar and Risako earlier in the week, Mrs Rumbelow made Chocolate cupcakes, Mrs Lower baked us some Red Nose cakes and Mr Duncan contributed a homemade Lemon Drizzle to the assortment. An impressive £146.43 was raised to help vulnerable people in the UK and the world’s poorest communities.
