Aeronautical Engineering and Basketball with Glenalmond College4th May 2017

On Thursday 12 October, we were delighted to welcome Mike Jeffers, Registrar of Glenalmond College to Bishopstrow.

Mike was kind enough to take a lesson in ‘aeronautical engineering’ for the Junior students on the Lower College Programme.  This took the form of a more technical approach to making paper aeroplanes, with the young students learning about drag and gravity, thrust and lift and the four forces in balance!

In addition to his role as Registrar, Mike teaches Mathematics at Glenalmond College and is also the basketball coach.  After a quick lunch, the Middle and Senior students joined Mike on the basketball court, for various practice drills, testing the handling and shooting skills of the students.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank Mike for his time and for entertaining the students, both inside and outside the classroom.
