Message home from Japan Super Science Fair

DAY 1: Friday 3rd November After 3 flights we arrived in Japan. Door to door it took a whopping 35 hours to reach our destination! Exhausted, but exceedingly excited, we've had a number of firsts. Some have been incredible, such as gigantic calligraphy displays choreographed to Japanese rock music. Some, however, have been a little more divisive, such as the abundance of fish in every meal, including breakfast! This morning, we met our fabulous Japanese buddies Miu and Manaho in person who have taken really good care of us. A whirlwind day of musical performances, traditional tea ceremonies, icebreaking activities and fascinating scientific presentations followed. Now can't wait for our turn to present tomorrow and keen to find out if Mritsa's team have made it into the final of the AI in Education competiton, having won their heat! With 20 different countries attending, we've already made so many new friends, shaken a plethora of hands and posed for countless selfies!  DAY 2: Saturday 4th November The girls completed both their project presentation and poster presentation. Both events were very well attended and they were asked and answered a lot of questions. We have also had the chance to eat Japanese street food as there was a festival at the university and had a tour of some of the research labs. Finally, we attended a lecture on Physics Phenomena. We're tired but excited for tomorrow! Day 3: Sunday 5th November   Day 3 saw us head back to Rits High School. Some fascinating talks about astrophysics, micromachines and the atmospheric conditions in the Antarctic preceded an awesome lunch party. A huge Conga line was formed, the universal dance of the Macarena followed and the party culminated in a giant, highly competitive game of Kahoot. Rhea’s team was victorious!   The afternoon was all about sharing our culture with other schools. Each school had a booth and we toured round, getting a short snapshot of numerous cultures, enjoying a multitude of interactive activities and edible offerings! This was rapidly packed away and we got to spend the next hour immersing ourselves in Japanese culture, being taught calligraphy by students, dressing in traditional Yukata and enjoying numerous games! A science showdown followed where our pupils joined many different nationalities working in small teams to build gliders and tested them out in the giant auditorium. We then headed back to the university for a delicious dinner and plenty of socialising with all the other schools!   Day 4: Monday 6th November   We started the day with some fascinating industrial tours, we got access to some of the most cutting-edge research institutions in and around Kyoto. Andrea and Mrs Reade were greeted by a talking robot at AGR who once acquainted can remember faces and names indefinitely. We got to walk around the gigantic sound-proof chamber over 12 metres high where all the research on wireless technology is carried out. Emphasis was placed on innovation - required to be at the forefront of the telecommunications trade culminating with a 15 minute challenge to build the tallest freestanding tower out of 9 chopsticks, Mrs Reade won with 91cm!   Our next stop was Fushimi Inari temple. We were blown away by the beauty of the Torii gates and immersed ourselves in all the practices, praying to Shinto (the Fox God), using prayer sticks to wish for successful endeavours and having our fortunes told. These can be both positive and negative. Dr Rees was relieved when everyone received good and not bad news, as that possibility had not been factored in on the risk assessment!   The evening was spent exploring down-town Kyoto with our buddies, Miu and Manaho. An extraordinarily long time was dedicated to selecting stationery, with bubble tea, fascinating local shops and a plethora of animal cafes also vying for our attention. We would have happily stayed for days!

Best Wishes Year 13

24th Jul 2023

Best Wishes Year 13

My 7 years at LGGS have been fantastic. In the sixth form especially there is amazing support for whatever needs you have, academic or pastoral, from both subject teachers and sixth form team who go never fail to go above and beyond. I don't think I could have chosen a better school or sixth form. Kate The endless opportunities, ongoing support and motivation provided are what made my time at LGGS sixth form so memorable. Atika Coming from the perspective of a new student, LGGS was so accepting and welcoming. It genuinely felt like I’d been here since year 7. If anyone is worried about starting at a new school, don’t be. I’ve had the most amazing 2 years, with the loveliest people and I’m really going to miss it. Emily When I first joined LGGS all the way back in Year 7, I had no idea that it would become such an integral part of helping me grow into the person I am today. Especially regarding the sixth form, the staff have been more supportive than I had ever imagined. They are just as passionate about my goals as I am, and it feels like everyone is so connected, like a little family! I will definitely miss this school a lot, and all the amazing friends I have made here. I am glad that I had the honour of attending such a place that has helped me to mature and become confident enough to achieve things I would never have thought of otherwise. Go LGGS! :)  Eshaal LGGS Sixth Form provides me a very supportive and challenging academic experience. The teachers are all highly experienced and always available to offer guidance and support. All the Sixth form staff are working to make every student feel valued and well-prepared for the future. Along with excellent academic offerings, the shcool offers a vast range of extracurriculars. As one of the leader of the Maths Society, I have thoroughly enjoyed the role and it allowed me to connect with like-minded students. Overall, I had a wonderful time at LGGS Sixth Form. As I am ready for university life, I feel a deep sense of gratitude for the experiences and growth that I have gained during my time here. Xia Leaving school is our first step into the real world. Although it will always be scary, there is no better place than LGGS to prepare you for it. In our small world, we are nurtured into the best versions of ourselves by not just the staff but also the students. Little did we know that those were some of the best days of our life. LGGS is more than a school; it is a family. Tirtha Thanks to: Laurence Johnson Photography for allowing us to use these images
