Grateful for another successful year, Year 7 Conflict Exhibition, & OxBright Essay Competition

Dear Families,

As we come to the end of another successful year, it is important to reflect on all we have achieved over the past 37 weeks of school.

Today's assembly showcased how our students have flourished by acquiring and applying new learning, discovering passions, and making a positive impact on those around them.

We are incredibly grateful for the support from families throughout the year. Whether attending exhibitions or community events, cheering your child/ren from the sidelines, or simply encouraging them to be the best versions of themself, each of you has contributed to our collective success.

I would also like to acknowledge our exceptionally dedicated staff for all their hard work and commitment to providing the best experience for our students.

I wish you all a wonderful break and look forward to welcoming you back in August for another exciting year.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Richard Healy

Year 7 Conflict Exhibition

On Thursday, 13 June and Monday, 17 June, Year 7 Humanities students assembled to present an exhibition on the theme of ‘conflict’. Students were charged with researching and preparing an exhibit outlining the causes, consequences, and significance of a conflict from history such as the Nataruk Massacre, the Crusades, the Punic Wars, and the American War of Independence.

Their enthusiasm and creativity were on show, while their critical thinking was evident as they fielded questions from a range of special guest judges.

Sydney (Year 10) shortlisted at the OxBright Essay Competition 2024

A roaring congratulations to Sydney (Year 10) for being shortlisted at the recent OxBright Essay Competition Awards Ceremony.

At the Awards Ceremony, they announced the winners in each subject category and the overall winner. The results have now been published on their website, along with a recording and the overall winning essay.

While Sydney didn't get the winning spot, being shortlisted in a competitive field of over 1,000 entries is a great feat and achievement. The BSM Community is roaringly proud of her.

Sydney wrote a brilliant essay answering the question “How does collaboration in Philosophy support social impact and innovation?"

The panel of judges were very impressed with Sydney’s essay, shortlisting it within a competitive field of over 1,000 entries. Sydney’s prize was a free place at an OxBright academic conference.

OxBright, by the Oxford Scholastica Academy, exists to inspire students to succeed, find their purpose and make a difference in the world. They do this by offering courses, internships, conferences and resources for teenagers, and you can find out more on their website.

Entering an Essay Competition is a great way to prepare for university applications, think deeply about a topic beyond the school curriculum, and widen your academic horizons. OxBright warmly welcome entries from British School Manila for future Essay Competitions, and any students who are interested can find out more here.

Many congratulations again to Sydney! We look forward to more entries from more BSM Lions in the future.
