The Science department recently ran an event for More Able and Talented pupils. The day, co-ordinated by Mrs Padfield and Miss Holt was on the topic of Health.
Year 9 pupils Mark Barrion, Micheal Bear, Ryan Biscocho, Sami Bryant, Kristin Bryce, Kathryn Davies, Zoe Fulbrook, Zaid Hammoudeh, Bethan Pembridge, Yancy Sun, Wah Tsui and Will Taylor took part supported by year 10 pupils Amy Brown, Charlotte Pritchard, Aaron Parsons and Arwel Poacher.
The pupils were divided in two groups. One group focused on the merits of Homeopathy and the validity of its claims of success in treating people and the other on the Bill Gates Foundation which is a charity that aims to alleviate health problems in areas of great poverty.
