In today’s assembly we were presented with two excellent speeches by our senior students.

Cailin spoke about Super-storm Sandy, the second costliest hurricane to hit the USA, explaining how devastating the storm had been and giving us an insight into an individual’s experience of it.

Gaius got us all thinking about birds, entertaining us with some amazing facts about the tallest, smallest, rarest and everything in between.  Did you know? That the smallest bird in the world is the bee hummingbird (Mellisuga helenae) of Cuba and the Isle of Youth. Males measure 57 mm in total length, half of which is taken up by the bill and tail, and weigh 1.6 g.

Well done to these students – it takes a great deal of courage to make a speech in front of the whole school and to do such a fantastic job.
