Biology Week 2016

Biology Week 2016 was a resounding success. From a photography competition that staff and students entered, to a treasure hunt around College, everyone had great fun!

The events kicked off on Monday with the Great Biology Bake-off, and all the entries were fantastic, including a brain cake which looked entirely realistic.

On Tuesday, we all dyed carnations, which resulted in the white petals turning a medley of colours and during Wednesday break time, there was a word search competition with prizes for the first to finish. Most of the activities took place outside, but on Thursday the girls all came to one of the Biology labs to blow up balloons using yeast, which was a brilliant hands-on activity for everyone.

At the end of the week we collected in the treasure hunt entries. For this, the girls had to go around College answering biology related questions, by finding the answers stuck up on the walls in various locations. A brilliant effort from all taking part.

One of my favourite parts of Biology week was receiving and admiring the entries for the photography competition. Both pupils and staff managed to take fantastic photos, all of which were taken in the grounds. It was incredibly uplifting to see how many people took part in and enjoyed Biology Week, it makes me very excited for the rest of the year to come.
