Welcome to Bishop's Hatfield Girls' School
Girls in Year 8 were fortunate to be able to visit Hatfield House on October 18th. They took part in some Living History events such as meeting “Henry VIII” and visiting the famous oak tree where the young Princess Elizabeth was told she had acceded to the throne as Queen Elizabeth I.
A group of six Year 12 students are taking part in the Welwyn Hatfield Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge. The aim of the competition is to turn £100 into as much cash as possible for good causes and six teams from local schools are taking part. Each team has been given a Dragon to advise and guide them on their business plans and a charity for which they are aiming to raise the money for. Our team has been given McIntyre Hudson (an accountancy firm in Whetstone) as their Dragon and their charity is Refuge, a charity working against domestic violence. At the launch event at Gosling Sports Park in WGC last week, the challenge was launched by businessman Sir Roy Gardner, chairman of the Compass Group. The girls started as they meant to go on by winning the first challenge of making the tallest tower out of only newspaper and sticky tape. They demonstrated excellent team work and innovative skills and we were incredibly proud of their tower which they named, “The leaning tower of Bishops”.
