The stairways of Bellver International College are filled with colourful art work from many of the art classes. The Year 5 students have been studying the Titanic and in art class decided to draw pictures of the famous ship and then make three D lifeboats with all the people who survived the tragedy. Year 6 has reviewed the exciting Olympics of Rio 2016 by drawing their favourite athletes doing their sports and the mascots that were at all the games. The famous Olympic torches were made from card and cellophane paper. Year 9´s puppets are on display from their puppet show "Apple´s and Bananas". Some beautiful felt craft of flowers were made by Year 7 Craft class. Year 9 have drawn complex, detailed pictures of hidden objects challenging the viewer to search out the hidden object. Many large scale projects are underway and will soon form part of new display boards.
At this solemn time of the year the student at Bellver remembered those who had lost their lives during conflicts around the word. Poppies were sold, continuing the charity work done by the students and teachers.
Younger students became involved by making their own poppies and loved showing off their work.
At 11 o’clock on the 11th day of the 11th month, the whole school stood in silence as a mark of respect.
On Wednesday, the Year 13 students at Bellver International College presented their assembly on the Paralympics to the rest of the secondary department. They chose four athletes, 2 women and 2 men, and told their extraordinary stories about becoming the very best in their respective countries. They spoke of overcoming adversity, even when all odds seem to be against you. It was inspirational and touching to hear these positive stories as they are rarely the focus of media attention. With this assembly, Year 13 sought to inspire the audience that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and work very hard to achieve it.
In recent weeks, Year 4 at Bellver International College have been finding out about natural disasters. Their researches have led them to discover the different types of volcano, the forces behind hurricanes and the devastating effect of tsunami.
To help them further understand the topic, the children made posters and built models to depict the disasters. With all the research done and the posters and models complete, the children then had the opportunity to present their findings to their classmates.
