Welcome to 8T!

Summer Term has finished and we are now straight back into the demands of Autumn Term. It has been a great start to the year and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with such a wonderfully enthusiastic bunch of students.

The 8T boys started the year with learning about the diversity of Asian cultures through reading a range of short stories. They are about to further challenge their view of the world and human rights as we study our novel Bamboo People. Our English studies have merged with Humanities in that we learnt about the tempestuous history of Cambodia in the 1970s under the regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge and we are now about to learn about the history of Burma and the Karen Army. Hopefully this provides the boys with an insight and empathy to other cultures and the demands faced by people living in them.

We are all very excited about the Moray Expedition which is coming up in Week 3 and looking forward to having plenty of adventurous stories and fun photos to share on our return.
