On Wednesday and Thursday, Lower Sixth Biology students undertook two days of fieldwork, braving the unfortunate rainy weather. After being taught the necessary skills and statistical tests in the laboratory, they carried out practical work such as capturing, marking and releasing woodlice as well as measuring the abundance of plant species on mown and unmown grass. Overall, students enjoyed the experience of doing practical work outside and particularly appreciated the large order of pizza at the end of a long day on Wednesday. They would like to say a big thank you to the Biology Department for organising two days of challenging, rewarding fieldwork!
On Friday 23 February, the KEHS and KES African and Caribbean Society hosted the first King Edward’s Foundation wide Conference. We had 120 students from across 12 schools from across the KEVI Foundation attend the day.
