EGA Spelling Bee Finals 2018!! Posted on: 11/12/2018

EGA Spelling Bee Finals 2018!!

Since September 2018, French and Spanish students in Year 7 have been preparing to take part in a Spelling Bee competition! The aim of the Spelling Bee is to improve students’ confidence in the language they are learning and to practise spelling a variety of words using the alphabet correctly.  All students learned 50 words off by heart in either French or Spanish and they also had to learn how to say the different accents.  The students with the highest scores in the class competitions from each language were selected to take part in the EGA finals on Tuesday 27th November!!! Here are the finalists from each class: Spanish:  7Z - Menabe Andargachew  and  Zahra Newaz,  7A – Fardousa Ahmed and  Sara Jlok,  7L – Iman Jirow and Ruweda Ahmed. French:  7E – Annachiara Senatore and Fariha Bhuiyan,  7H – Elizabeth Michail and Yasmin Abdulrahman Ahmed, 7T – Umme Hashmi and Elena Fusha.  The day of the finals was extremely exciting and all the participants, although incredibly nervous, showed great courage and displayed their amazing language skills. The Languages Faculty are extremely impressed by all of the competitors’ determination and the contagious enthusiasm that made the Spelling Bee such a special event- thank you! We are pleased to announce the overall winners of the Languages Spelling Bee! HUGE congratulations go to: Annachiara Senatore in French and Ruweda Ahmed in Spanish (below)! Well done to all!!!!

Poetry Competition Results Posted on: 28/11/2018

Poetry Competition Results

Since National Poetry Day, we have been hard at work judging the competition entries on the theme of 'change', and we have finally managed to choose two winners! All the entries demonstrated real thought, imagination and commitment to the process of communicating ideas through poetry, and it was really hard choosing winners from our not-that-short shortlist... It got us thinking about how poetry is perhaps best enjoyed and shared instead of ranked. To celebrate all the wonderful poets at EGA, we will be making a display of all the entries and including some of our thoughts about them. You are also welcome to come and speak to Ms Hazine for individual feedback. Thank you to everyone who entered, and remember that all writers experience many rejections before success - so please keep writing! Congratulations to Elizabeth Peto (KS3 winner) and Angel Studman (KS4 winner). You are both warmly invited to collect your prizes from the English Faculty at a time of your convenience. Ms Hazine and the English Department   The winning poems:   Let The Sun Guide You  by Angel Studman (KS4 winner)   Take my hand, take my hand through the meadow of change, but don't step on the flowers it may cause someone pain.   The beaming sun the beaming sun oh how it glows but when rain comes it washes away that golden glow.   Oh sun, oh sun don't leave, don't leave I am but a flower in this big world I am trying to change.   As I Like It  by Elizabeth Peto (KS3 winner)   As I walked, along I talked, I thought of little Joe Barney. With his little straw hat, and his big Tom-Cat, And how he walked in barley. How he and that cat, chased with that rat, On the railroad track.   Now I think, as I skate in a rink, of little Josie Mellow. With her flowery dress, designed to impress, In that horrible yellow. How she was scared of a mouse, hid in a house, and refused to budge an inch.   As I eat, in a place to meet, I think of little old me. A girl scared of spiders, who sucked up to highers, And wanted a dog called Bea.   Now little Joe Barney, who walked in the barley, Works in a flower shop. And little Josie Mellow, in that horrible yellow, Started to be a cop. Finally, little old me? Well, let's wait and see.
Astonishing GCSE Results 2018! Posted on: 23/08/2018

Astonishing GCSE Results 2018!

Congratulations to all our students who achieved a brilliant set of GCSE results this summer. We are all extremely proud of your accomplishments. This year our girls achieved the highest num-ber of top grades (7+/A/A*) ever. We wish year 11 leavers the best of luck in their future endeav-ours. Here are some words of advice from some of our top grade girls for the next generation of GCSE students! Iman Hassoun Achieved 6 grade 9s this year! "My advice is to make sure that you understand all the content as you go along and to not be afraid to ask questions. This will ensure that revision is easy and quick as you are not relearning or learning con-tent. Also, do lots of exam practice (including treating your mocks like the real exam) so that you familiarise yourself with the mark scheme. My last advice is to enjoy what you’re learning and have fun, if you try your best you'll achieve your best. Good luck." Fatima Osman  Achieved 6 grade 9s this year!   "My advice is to use all of the resources provided and make sure to always ask for extra things. However, you should only go to clubs if you actually feel you will benefit from them (not just because your friends are going); if you have gone over the content already, maybe use that time to do some independent study instead to revise over things you actually need, so when exam season comes along, you don’t feel like you’ve wasted any time throughout the year and you’ve done your best." Caitlin Russell Achieved 14 GCSEs- all grade 7/A and above- in her time at EGA! My advice is to take it slow, don’t do loads of revision even leading up to exams, just spread it evenly across spring/summer terms. Don’t let yourself feel guilty about not working, either do it or just forget about it for a second and relax.
