The Knitathon has started again!! This is a unique OLS tradition where staff and students come together and knit Christmas gifts for the homeless. This year we are making squares to make into lovely colourful blankets.
A huge congratulations to Nikishi Polgolla C5 who won the excellence award and the special category ISTA award at the recent SciFest National finals in Marino College. The entire OLS community are extremely proud of you!
Language Week is well and truly up and running this week with lot of events taking place around the school! Well done to our 5th Year Spanish Debating Team who have been working tremendously hard over the past few weeks. They recently competed in the ATS Spanish Debating Blitz in St Benildus College. The students had no easy feat, debating in opposition to the motion: “We should put limits on Artificial Intelligence.” The student did brilliantly but lost out narrowly. Another well done to our team who were involved in a friendly debate against Belvedere College on the motion: “Girls face more social pressure than boys.” All of our debating teams put a huge amount of effort into both competitions.
Some of our TY students had the opportunity to participate in a Bulgarian workshop hosted by ‘Think Languages.’ The students learnt some basic words and phrases in Bulgarian and learnt about the culture of the country. They also had a chance to make their very own Martenitsas, a handmade Bulgarian Bracelet which is traditionally gifted in the Spring time and symbolises good health and prosperity.
