Clubs & Societies Showcase gives parents a taste of CLS
Last Thursday staff, parents, pupils, alumni and prospective parents flooded into the Great Hall for our inaugural Clubs and Societies Showcase. Hosted by the Parents' Bursary Scheme, guests were treated to an array of stalls which perfectly encapsulated the strength of the extra-curricular provision here at CLS.
Scattered around the room were fossils, cheese, computers and trains, to name a few, and pupils were thrilled to be showing off what they enjoy doing outside the classroom. Robotics and Programming societies were proudly showing their undoubtedly supreme programming skills, Zoology Club were showing fossils, pictures and more wildlife-related things, there was a team from the award winning iGem competition demonstrating their technology, Chinese Culture Club were showing very colourful decorations, Warhammer and Chess were deep into games between themselves, the Cheese Appreciation Society was showing off their… well, cheese, and Model Railway Society were using our large scale railway and trying not to derail the trains!
The aim of the Showcase was to raise awareness about the CLS Bursary Scheme, which allows so many children to come here and enjoy these opportunities who otherwise would not be able to. Alumni were invited to talk on how they benefitted from a bursary at CLS. Speakers included Lawrence Anfo-Whyte, class of 2008, and you can click here to read an interview with him.
The event was diverse and exciting, and we want to thank everyone involved for creating such a fun and atmospheric evening.
