As we commence a busy new term, the House Leaders have been reflecting on a dynamic and successful year for the House System.
At CSIA, students and staff alike thrive on the competition within the four tribes of the system: Masai, Maori, Abenaki and Aztec. Throughout the year, House Leaders organise a range of sporting, academic, creative and extracurricular challenges as a chance for students to win points towards the House League. Significantly, these points are collated and totalled to establish the winner of the all-important House Cup at the end of the year.
7:00am was an early start, waiting for the train at Camborne station. Taylor S, Kayleigh W, Ross W and Rhiannon D, four of Camborne Science and International Academy’s budding Year 8 scientists were on their way accompanied by myself, to take part in the Annual ‘Salters Festival of Chemistry’ at Plymouth University.
This academic year at CSIA has seen a cohort of passionate, dedicated and talented young photographers developing their craft. This had led up to the recent moderation exhibition and we look forward to celebrating their results in August. Students explored a variety of different conceptual topics through a lens, including the media, issues of bullying and disability and mental health. Students have experimented with numerous new skills and equipment including macro photography, digital manipulation, studio photography, black and white film development and darkroom printing.
At 8.30 on 18 June, 39 gifted and talented scientists from year 5 in our local primary schools and staff set off from Camborne Science and International Academy. Our destination was @Bristol for a day of science and fun. Students joined us from Connor Downs School; Penponds School; Rosemellin Community primary school; Roskear CP Junior & Infant School; St. John’s RC Primary School; St. Meriadoc CE Junior School; Trevithick School; and Weeth School; we all had a fantastic day.
