Friday 26th October saw the 2nd ever ISM House Football Tournament. St Patrick’s, St George’s, St David’s and St Andrew’s houses were proudly represented by all members of secondary. The tournament was split into KS3 girls, KS3 boys, KS4&5 girls, KS4&5 boys, with every student participating in at least one match. Even the teachers got involved by wearing their house colours and leading the cheerleading from the sidelines. Well done to all involved and to Mr O’Riordan for organising such a fun day!

We wish to congratulate Razwan, Guillermo and Mateo, from the KS3 Robotics Club in Secondary, who came third in the Spanish finals of the World Robot Olympiad in September. This is a tremendous achievement. This group, classed in the ‘rookie’ category, had to build their robot from scratch and undertake a specific task in under 2 minutes. 80 groups participated and ISM was the only school to do so. This activity points to the future, as we are told that many of the jobs of the future will be done by robots. At ISM we are very aware that we need to prepare our students for jobs which have not yet been invented. This means a focus on skills and abilities, including social, communication and language skills and emotional intelligence.
