HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR - THE YEAR OF THE HORSE!


(image taken from Google doodle)

The 15-day celebration of Chinese New Year starts today, with the first New Moon of the calendar year. The day marks the end of the year of the Water Snake and welcomes the start of the year of the Wooden Horse. The exact date of Chinese New Year is determined by the lunisolar cycle. That means the calendar is based on exact astronomical observations of the Sun's longitude and Moon phases. GONG XI FA CAI!

BATTLE OF THE BANDS - THURSDAY 23RD JANUARY 2014

On Thursday 23rd January we held our annual Battle of the Bands show in the Main School Hall. A group of teachers and sixth-form music students were called upon to judge the groups; scoring them in terms of ‘collaboration’; ‘technical ability’; ‘image’ and their ‘interpretation’ of the songs in their set.  Points were also awarded to the best player in each band.  The winning band, on the first photo, ‘The Chase’ won £80 in HMV gift vouchers. Please check the next issue of the Sydenham Magazine for more info.
