Robert Clack welcomes Alex Dunn from The Bank of England
On Wednesday 8th February we were very happy to welcome Alex Dunn, from the Parliamentary Affairs Group at The Bank of England. Alex came in to speak to Sixth Form Economics students about the workings of the Bank and the changes that have taken place since the economic crisis. Students were interested to hear that Alex is part of the team that advises the Governor of The Bank of England when he presents to the Treasury Select Committee. Harris in Year 12 said:
‘Meeting Alex Dunn was an exciting opportunity that I am happy I took. Before I met him I didn't know as much about the Bank of England as I do now. This was helpful to me and everyone else who attended as it gave us extra knowledge for our Economics A-Level. It was especially valuable to me as in the future I would love to work in the Bank of England myself. Alex told us about the history of the Bank, its main aims and the Treasury Select Committee. He also gave us insight into his role in the bank and told us how people from all sorts of educational backgrounds worked there so we should not restrict ourselves. It was great meeting him and I hope to take advantage of these opportunities whenever and wherever possible.’

Year 7/8 French Theatre trips to All Saints Catholic School
On Thursday 8th December and Thursday 19th January, 120 of our Year 7/8 students attended a French Theatre Performance at our neighbouring school, All Saints. The school had some tickets to spare and kindly offered them to Robert Clack students. We watched an hour-long play entitled ‘Le Café’ delivered exclusively in French on the 8th and a bilingual performance entitled ‘Shipwrecked’ on the 19th. Many of the students were worried they wouldn’t understand any of it, but they were, in fact, surprised by how much they could comprehend – five of our students, Aastha Subba, Sahat Chowdhury, Anika Anjum, Toni-Ann Barron and Oluwaseye Amakor even got pulled up to participate in the play!
Year 9 Spanish Food Tasting Event
On Friday 24th February 2017, 32 of our Year 9 Spanish students spent their Period 5 lesson trying some authentic food from across a variety of Spanish-speaking countries. Mrs Allen cooked an array of dishes including paella, refried beans, quesadillas, burritos, Cuban black beans, tortilla chips, guacamole and salsa which students thoroughly enjoyed. In addition, Matthew Elsom’s Mum was kind enough to make a type of Spanish cheesecake full of ‘dulce de leche’ (toffee / caramel) which Justin pretty much ate by himself, and a Russian salad which Daniil was upset to learn wasn’t Russian at all! Wesley decided to try something new – cheesecake wrapped in a tortilla and Shane ate so much he struggled to move for Period 6! It was a great experience for all and hopefully they will now be inspired to try to cook some authentic recipes of their own.
