From within the bubble of the Queen’s school it can be difficult to measure the development of our pupils against their peers across the nation and beyond, until of course they take their GCSE and GCE examinations, by which time it’s something of a moot point.
Last Tuesday ten Year 5 Lower School girls were invited to the Senior School with children from other schools to do a plastic workshop.
First we looked at information about how many different plastic items are used every week, month, year and decade. It was a scary amount.
We were pleased to welcome a number of primary schools to Queen’s for a Plastics Workshop led by our Head of Geography Miss Aldridge.
The teams worked together to solve problems and understand more about how plastics affected our oceans and, indeed, the whole planet.
We welcomed pupils, parents, alumnae and staff to Chester Cathedral today for our annual Commemoration Service, where we give thanks to the founders of The Queen's School for their efforts 141 years ago.
