St Christina’s Visit

Posted: 5th February 2016

A scientific reaction

We look forward to hosting St Christina’s Year 5 pupils for a morning of scientific fun and experimentation on Tuesday 9th February. This event continues our programme of partnerships with local Catholic primary schools.

Mr Barnes, Head of Science, has organised a morning of exciting activities which focus on the subject of Reactions. Specifically, pupils will consider the nature of reversible and irreversible changes to various materials. Partnered with our Lower II girls, pupils will, among other things, investigate the properties of water, iron and magnesium, testing the application of heat and the process of distillation.


These linking days are occasions on which our girls broaden their experience of working in partnerships. In addition to the immediate social enrichment this provides, such events contribute to girls’ enthusiasm for the subject and preparation for lifelong success.

Following the very positive feedback from Mount Carmel’s recent visit, we look forward to welcoming our friends at St Christina’s and showcasing the wonderful facilities of St Augustine’s Priory.
