A Display of Excellence

08 July 2022

We are constantly amazed by the high quality of work produced by pupils of all ages here at EHS. In recognition of that talent and hard work, each term teachers are asked to nominate outstanding or excellent work to the Excellence Book. This term, we have once again seen work of an extraordinarily high calibre produced by girls in every year and across a range of subjects. Congratulations to the following students in the Senior School and Sixth Form for some exceptional work.

CLASSICS

Norehan Elkhazin (Y9)

For an outstanding review of Aeneid Book 1. Norehan showed an excellent understanding of what the book tells us about Roman values. Norehan impressed Mrs Macro by not only completing this work but also finishing the whole of Aeneid. Fantastic!

ENGLISH

Zahra Khan (Y9)

For independently creating a fantastic piece of work based on lyrics of a song. Zahra has impressed us with the effort she went to in exploring and analysing the lyrics in exceptional details. This was both a visual and written display of her ideas.

Elisa Calebiro (Y8)

For her amazing homework on ‘The Life of River’, where she completed the challenge question ‘how is a river like a human?’. Elisa created a comparative story at each stage of the river’s course, showing the similarities between the river characteristics and features to that of a person. Her drawings are excellent and descriptions include key terminology.

MATHEMATICS

For independently discovering the same method used by Carl Gauss for summing all the integers from 1 to 100. She then adapted it for summing 1 to 1000 and presented her method to the class in a clear and precise manner (she also explained it to Mrs Macro, so that she could understand it). Overall, an incredible and insightful feat.
