Year 11 had a team building activity as they encouraged and supported each other in Jungle Parc. They have a hard challenging year ahead and it was nice to have a day of bonding as they embark on the final year on Key Stage 4.

After nearly two hours tackling the tree top courses, a picnic lunch was enjoyed at the nearby beach, and they thoroughly enjoying a refreshing swim in the waters of Calo d'en Pellicer, Santa Ponsa.

DP1 students went with their teachers on an orienteering activity in La Victoria in Alcudia. In the forest they worked as teams to complete the route. After the fun activity the group got together on the beach to have a picnic lunch and some students enjoyed a swim.

Year 2 had a lovely day at the Castle, learning about the history of who lived there and why it was built. The children loved playing in theplay park at lunch time and building their own castles in the sand.

Year 4 students visited La Reserva Park in Puigpunyent. They had a hike through the mountains, saw some animals, talked about the trees in the Mallorcan forest and compared and contrasted it all with the rain forest environment and habitats they are studying.

Year 9 spent the day at the “Santuari de Lluc”, the monastery in the Mallorcan mountains which is frequented by hikers as numerous excursions have their starting point at the monastery. The group had a guided visit to the botanical garden and then went on a trekking route with a specialist guide. They enjoyed learning about the flora & fauna of the Balearic Islands and the environmental importance of this area.

Year 8 spent the day in Deià, a village located in an area which is part of the National Heritage of La Serra de Tramuntana. The students had a guided hike around the village and down to the small pebbled beach. They had a lovely day learning about Mallorcan architecture, plants and coasts.

IB related activities

Our Diploma Programme students in DP1 got their first CAS experiences underway this half term with a vegan cookery class. The cookery students worked together in groups to make vegan sushi rolls. Rolling sushi was a new skill to learn for most and thinking about vegan options was also new to many. They did a fantastic job and the results were amazing!

As part of their IB CAS programme and with the support of the PTA, our Diploma Programme students in DP2 organised a very successful charity coffee morning to welcome Senior School parents back to the school community after two years of Covid restrictions. The students were busy working out the logistics and advertising the event. They did an amazing job baking cakes, making coffee and tea and waiting on tables. It was great to see so many parents in school again. A big thank you to all our generous parents - we raised a fantastic € 430.58 for Cancer Support Group, Mallorca and Amigos de Buba.
