Record numbers attended the BGS whole School Open Events last week and our BGS team of roving reporters, consisting of Year 12 pupils Emily Wilson, Sophie Parker and Lucy Leech wrote a highly entertaining report covering the Open Event activities. Future journalists in the making!
'The Bury Grammar School's Open Events are a fantastic opportunity for visitors to come to the Schools and witness first-hand some of the exciting things which make BGS so successful. Bury Grammar Schools were proud to provide a unique experience for prospective pupils and parents while current BGS pupils guide parents and potential pupils around the school. From the youngest members of the BGS family to our Sixth Formers, our current pupils were able to shed light on what life is really like at Bury Grammar School, giving the best advice and reassurance to pupils and parents as they remember the daunting experience of starting high school. Visiting families were able to take part in a range of stimulating and fascinating activities. Children were enthralled with the ‘Guess the Medieval Artefacts’ game in History while the Geography department transported people to the Seven Wonders of the World using a ‘green screen’. The Religious Studies department also offered a spectacular array of cultural foods from the six major world religions. The Science department provided children with the opportunity to engage in a wide range of exciting experiments such as the grotesque dissection of a cow’s heart! Visitors also enjoyed putting their creative skills to the test in the English department by contributing to an ongoing story and creating their own eccentric, personalised name badges. Amongst all the educational activities, our talented Pupil Ambassadors presented their extra-curricular skills through sport matches and beautiful performances from our choirs and music groups- truly portraying the myriad of opportunities that Bury Grammar School bring.'
