BeeHive School Finishes The Term with Triumph

I can’t believe it’s already time for our next update!  BeeHive School is doing great – the yearly “Sports Day” was a smashing success and the students did just as well in their Cambridge International Exams.
 
Sports Day is an end-of-term tradition for the school.  The school is broken into four “houses” or teams that compete for the House Cup – a giant trophy!  BeeHive’s Lions, Tigers, Cheetahs and Leopards strive to outperform their peers in this good-natured competition through sporting events, mental math matches, spelling competitions, acts of kindness, good manners and class participation.  During the last week of term, the houses competed in Sports Day.  Events in jump rope, soccer, netball, three legged, potato sack and running races allowed the students (and teachers!) to each points for their houses.  The Lions beat out the others, for the third straight year.

Another highlight of the last week of school was the end of term assembly where the new class captains were announced, Academic Achievement presents were awarded, and the House Cup was presented to the Lions.

The students may have left the school in early July, but the excitement did not end.  The results for the Standard 7 class came a few weeks later.  Standard 7, the most advanced grade at the school (and also the smallest) took the University of Cambridge International Exam.  The exam covers science (biology, chemistry, physics, and scientific enquiry), math (geometry and measure, handling data, and number) and English (reading, usage and writing).  Each section is based on a score of 0-6, with 6 being excellent, 3 good, and 0 poor.

Students, parents and teachers were all thrilled with the results.  The class got an average score of 4.1 for science, 4.8 for English, and 3 for math.  It’s nice to see the hard work of everyone pay off in a quantifiable way.

The school is looking forward to another great term ahead!  We’ll be in touch with more exciting updates!
