Denaeo went to Tbilisi in Georgia with his England team to box in the European Championships from 1-12 August.

His first fight was against Slovenia and he won with a unanimous decision. His second fight for a bronze medal was against Lithuania and, again, he won with a unanimous decision. His third fight for a silver medal was against Armenia and, again, he won with a unanimous decision. His final fight for a gold medal was against Georgia and he won again by split decision.

He now holds the school European championship title, along with his GB and England title, which means he has achieved the highest level in boxing for his age!

Well done Denaeo!

We were recently visited by a number of retired St Paul’s staff, who came to view our present school and to meet with each other and share stories of school life. The group are pictured in the area that they would have known as the ‘Drama Hall’, but now is our courtyard! They all spoke of their hope that the students of our school continue to thrive and that a good number of them become future teachers! Former students may recognise familiar faces!

Student reviews & pictures from the Medical Mavericks Workshops:

 

“It helped you think outside the box and use skills we’ve learnt from Science and put it into practice. I really enjoyed it”

 “It’s been interesting and fun carrying out a series of experiments to solve a murder mystery”

 “It was really nice doing a forensic investigation”

 “They were fun experiments and at the same time you learn a lot of things like how to carry out flame tests to identify metals in compounds and the non-metal parts of the compounds”

 “It was very interesting to see the different colours compounds give when they burn”

 “It’s a fun way of learning new things. I can’t wait to try out taking blood from a fake arm in next week’s Medical Mavericks Workshop”

 “For me it is very interesting and it will help us in the future”

 “Overall it has been a good experience, learning about necessary and important things vital to life. I would be obliged to meet with members of the Cape Ed and learn more about Marine Biology so I am really looking forward to the STEM Workshop on the 28th June”
