NEWS & EVENTS

Atheltics Championships April 2015

ImageOn 24th April we held our biggest event of the year, the Athletics Championships at Anjalay Stadium. The competition was high on the day, particularly in the track events where we saw some very close run races between Kurtik Appadoo and Haashim Duffaydar in Benjamin boys, Stephane Danjoux and Bradley Wong in Minim boys, Liam Beechouk, Paul Bertrand and Francois Martin in Cadet boys, and Dylan Swaney, Louis Harel and Alvinio Berthelot in Junior boys.

A few school records were broken with Josh Meine completing the 400m in under 1 minute, and Nicole Swaney increasing her high jump record to 1m45 and her 200m time by .25 of a second. However the 1500m record was taken away from Nicole by Aurelie Tang Yan who shaved 3 seconds off Nicole’s time from last years’, coming home very comfortably in 6m11.

In the field events new girl Cecile Regnard did extremely well in her first Athletics Championships, winning 4 gold medals and claiming the girls’ javelin record with a throw of 22m68. Dylan Swaney also broke the boys javelin record with a throw of 40m95, and Roxana Newman in Form 2 also did well as she threw the discus 19m80 over 1m50 more than Maelle in U6 from last year.

The relays as always a good ending to the day and some great times were recorded by all teams. The best however were the Eagles Cadet boys with Paul Bertrand, Poubalen Parasuraman, Francois Martin and Alvinio Berthelot, who completed the 4x100m in an amazing 54 seconds!

Northfields International Preparatory School Opening in August 2015

In August 2015, Northfields will open its doors to Class 5 and Class 6 pupils. This is the initial phase in development of a full preparatory school to facilitate the transition of students into the High School, both in terms of academic ability and social development. The Prep school has dedicated classrooms, and access to other specialist teaching facilities for a wide range of subjects. The curriculum is challenging and varied with the aim of engaging our pupils to develop a desire to learn and inquire. The academic curriculum includes English, Mathematics, Science, French, History, Geography, ICT, Art and Design, Music, Drama, Beliefs & Values, Physical Education and PSHE.

We broadly follow the English National Curriculum but with small class sizes and specialist teaching the minimum requirements are exceeded with some topics being introduced earlier and topics covered in more depth. Pupils are taught in mixed ability classes throughout the school and subjects are managed by specialist Heads of Faculty who are committed to ensuring excellent standards and continuity of learning throughout the stages of education at Northfields.

Pupil progress is monitored closely by the Class Teacher and the Head of School, informal and formal tests will take place throughout the year. Teaching staff will liaise closely with the pastoral team, highlighting the strengths of individual children so that they have the opportunity to nurture and develop their skills and passions in particular areas.

As part of the holistic education that Northfields provides, our extra-curricular programme offers students the opportunities to develop their interests further. A variety of activities will be available to all students for example music, sports and further academic exploration.

Where will Northfields International Preparatory School be situated?

The preparatory school will be situated on our campus. The first block has been transformed to receive the Class 5 and 6.
