With January coming to an end, we are excited to announce a new initiative to promote better communication and community between students, parents, and the school. Starting this month, we will produce monthly recap videos showing our school's most exciting and vital events and daily routines.

This Month @ CLIP - January 2023

Our school is a dynamic and vibrant place, and something is always happening that is worthy of being shared. From athletic competitions to musical performances, from science fairs to club meetings, there is never a shortage of activities to keep students engaged and involved. However, with so much going on, it can be difficult for students, parents and guardians to stay informed about everything happening. This is where our monthly recap videos come in.


These videos will provide a brief but comprehensive overview of the main events and activities that take place each month at our school. They will feature highlights from a variety of events. They will give students, parents and guardians a glimpse into our school's life. We hope to foster a sense of community and encourage greater involvement in school life by informing everyone about what is happening at school.


In addition to helping to promote communication, our monthly recap videos will also serve as a valuable resource for our community. They will be able to refer back to these videos to see what has taken place in previous months and to get a sense of the variety and richness of the available experiences at our school.

We are very excited about this new initiative. We believe these monthly recap videos will be essential in promoting communication, community, and involvement at our school. We encourage everyone to tune in and share their thoughts and feedback.


We look forward to sharing our school's story with you!

CLIP moves to the National Finals of the "F1 in Schools" challenge
After nine years, CLIP returns to the world's most significant Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) competition, F1 in Schools.   Last Thursday, Team Aeroflux (5 students in F11 and F12) and Team G4 Motorsport (6 students in F10) headed to the Porto (CATIM - Centro de Apoio Tecnológico à Indústria Metalomecânica) regional finals in Penafiel, competing against other 17 teams from the area.   The objective set for the day was to secure a ticket to the National stage of the competition, which is only granted to the top three teams in each region. After a day filled with intense emotions and fierce competition, we're proud to celebrate that both teams from CLIP will be moving to the next stage of the challenge. Team G4 Motorsport secured 3rd place, whilst Team Aeroflux brought home 2nd place, plus the awards for Best Engineering and Best Verbal Presentation.   The National finals are scheduled for July 3rd, with the three best teams securing access to the World Finals. Last year, the World Finals were held in Singapore from September 10th to 12th.   F1 in Schools is not just about speed; it's a thrilling journey of creativity, engineering prowess, and business acumen. Participants, typically aged 11-19, design and manufacture miniature Formula 1 cars, pushing the boundaries of aerodynamics and materials science. These scaled-down marvels are then put to the test on a 20-meter track, where every fraction of a second counts.   Beyond the race track, teams must also develop a comprehensive business plan, demonstrating their marketing strategies, budgeting skills, and sponsorship acquisition abilities. This aspect of the competition fosters entrepreneurship and real-world problem-solving, preparing the next generation of leaders for success in an ever-evolving global economy.   With regional and national competitions leading up to the World Finals, F1 in Schools is a platform for young talents to shine internationally. Winners not only claim prestigious titles but also earn scholarships, internships, and invaluable industry connections, propelling them towards exciting careers in STEM.
