Bungay High School News February 2019

BUNGAY High School entered three teams of Year 8 girls into the National CyberFirst Girls Competition organised by the National Cyber Security Centre which is part of GCHQ. The competition ran for one week (January 21st - 28th) during which time the teams were involved in a series of online challenges. The challenges are derived from skills used by cyber security professionals which included logic and coding, cryptography, cyber security and networking. Each category had three levels of challenges – easy, intermediate and hard. As the girls made progress answering the questions they unlocked further challenges. our competitors were: Meah Gorton, Bailey Williams, Rebecca Hind, Lily Curtis, Jessica Crawley, Erin Dewsbery, kasey- Marie Bowen, Emma Deal, Esme Chapman and Rebecca Sargeant. Meah, who took part in the competition said “it was a great opportunity to learn new skills, solve problems and work as a team. It was frustrating and very hard work but it was a lot of fun”. Jessica said she enjoyed the experience because it gave her a new aspect of computing. We, as a school, were very impressed by the girls’ resilience and we saw

oN January 17th, Bungay Detachment of Suffolk Army Cadet Force welcomed its newest adult recruit to the ranks. Beth Ryan of Ilketshall St Margaret, whose son Daniel is a Corporal at the Detachment joined the ranks as a Civilian Assistant to help with administrative duties, running of events and generally assisting. Beth said she joined because she realised that the detachment could do with some help and saw it as an ideal opportunity to give something back to an organisation that helps so many children and young adults develop into fine citizens from across the County. Beth said she is looking forward to working with everyone at Suffolk ACF and looks forward to taking on more responsibilities as time develops. Her main focus, to start off, will be to try to recruit as many new cadets as possible to this worthwhile community group Staff Hayes, Detachment Commander, welcomed Beth with open arms as cadets numbers are increasing across the county and having a volunteer at the Unit that can assist with the admin tasks is a great asset that will release himself and the other adult volunteers to focus on delivering the varied training programme that the cadets are taught.

Although Beth has no previous military experience, this will not hinder her progression as any training needed will be given. If you

the girls grow in confidence as the week progressed. This experience really tested their ability to work as a team. According to NCSC, “women make up only 11% of the global cyber workforce” so we hope the CyberFirst Girls Competition will help the girls see that they can achieve in this field. We are proud of all the girls’ efforts. In January, 43 year 11 students demonstrated their commitment to their GCSE English studies by attending an evening performance of the RSC's latest version of Romeo and Juliet at Norwich Theatre Royal. The show was a modern take on a classic and brought many of the characters to life for the students whilst allowing them to revise the plot of the play. For some students, this was their first experience of seeing a play live and it was thoroughly enjoyed by staff and students alike. Year 10 students had a busy morning off timetable earlier in the term in order to learn some essential revision and study skills. There were four different sessions including flash cards, digital revision, learning science and mind mapping all led by members of the Senior Team. The theory behind the study skills was

explored and then students had some time to put the principles in action, many found the experience really useful and very productive. With the new GCSE exams being very content heavy it is essential that students can embed learning and then recover information quickly in exam situations so a variety of different revision styles are vital for success. Well done to Year 7 student,

Eloise Morran, who was selected to represent the school and the county in the Anglian Schools Cross Country event in Northampton on Saturday 2nd February. Eloise came a very creditable 37th in quite a tough race. Eloise felt she went out a bit too fast but will learn from this for future races. We are very proud of our

U16 Boys football team who reached the last 32 in the whole of the country for the English Schools Cup, unfortunately their winning streak came to a nail biting climax when they were knocked out by St Thomas Moore School from Bedford. The quarter final game was incredibly close and could have gone either way but, unfortunately their keeper made several superb saves to deny us progress in this national competition.

Harleston Ladies Evening Group

THE meeting was held on Wednesday 16th January 2019. Cathy welcomed everyone to the meeting and wished them a ’Happy New Year’. This evening was to be

a games night, with ladies playing in pairs with a score card each, scoring 3 for the winner of each game played, 1 for a draw, and no points for the loser. There were 10 games in total to play, with ladies going to different games around the room as they became free.

There was a great deal of

laughter as this went on, with Val Warren as the winner on points at the end of play. Ann gave the vote of thanks

to Cathy for organising the evening which had been great fun. our next meeting is on

February 20th when Robin Twigg will talk about 'Harleston Future. So ladies brave the dark nights and forget the TV for a friendly night out.
