Opera Trip

On 19th of June, the music department took forty students to watch a matinee performance of La Boheme at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

For many, this was the first opera they had ever attended and provided some enrichment to the curricular and extra-curricular provision here at Enfield Grammar.

There was a real buzz after the performance and the boys were talking through what they had seen all the way back to Enfield (in between world cup fever of course).

The department would like to thank the Opera House for providing such a great opportunity and to our two volunteer helpers, Mrs Hooke and Mrs Kocabali, for giving their time to support this amazing trip.

Professional Chef Michael Dutnall Visits Enfield Grammar

 

 

On Thursday 24th May Michael Dutnall, Executive Chef at the prestigious RAF Club (in Mayfair) visited Enfield Grammar School’s Food Department. During the session, students were able to view a cookery demonstration – providing them with an opportunity to learn specific skills towards their Food Preparation and Nutrition GCSE.  The boys were then able apply the skills that they had learnt during the demonstration to prepare and cook their own dish, ‘Chicken Princess with Mushroom and Tarragon Veloute’. The boys were all very focussed and appreciative of the opportunity to learn tips and techniques from a professional chef.

We would like to thank Mr Dutnall for giving up his time in order to encourage new talent.

Zdravko and Year Nine Band perform at Bush Hill Park Primary

Today the Year 9 band and Dravko performed at Bush Hill Park Primary School in front of a baying crowd of primary students across all year groups.  The sun shone, the music rocked and the reception of the staff, guests and students was amazing.

The event was part of a careers aspirations day arrange by our very own Governor, Paul Riddel, in his role as Chair of the Enfield Caribbean Association who do great work in and for our local community.

 

 

For Zdravko Danilov this was a homecoming gig and a chance to wow his former peers, which he did.  He opened the concert with piano renditions of All Of Me by John Legend (Ddravko’s own arrangement) and Fur Elise by Beethoven, as is his versatility!

The Year 9 band, consisting of Ahmed Ibrahim, Josh Emsley, Miles Barnett-John, Freddie Pickles and Ben Rebario, performed a full set – a truly remarkable feat for students of such a young age. The ability to turn up and perform with such professional attitudes and musical standard is testimony to the amazing work our peripatetic staff put in with the extra-curricular ensembles, producing serious top-class musicians.

 

I would like to thank Bush Hill Park Primary for hosting such an amazing day and hosting us so warmly and a special thank you to Paul for the great work he does for our boys and the local community.

We left the school with chants from the audience (and staff!) for a third set, living up to the mantra ‘Leave them wanting more… not less’.

UKMT Maths team challenge

On the 22nd of March the regional finals of the UKMT Maths team challenge took place at Pimlico academy.  The Challenge is a competition that gives students the opportunity to tackle a variety of engaging mathematical activities while developing teamwork and communication skills. The Enfield Grammar team was made up from  Adam Demou, Matthew Parker, Lewis Pummell and James Purnell.  The team performed admirably, gaining an impressive 30% increase in ranking compared to the previous year (even more impressively, the team had worked out this percentage increase for themselves).  They enjoyed themselves immensely and the whole team would like to take part again as they are sure they can do even better.
