We are delighted to have so many of our wonderful students safely back in school, and to be able to put a smile on their faces both in the classroom and out.
Year 7 students recently competed in the Egg and Spoon Race World Cup! An egg-citing(!) form based event in which the students were challenged to move twelve ‘eggs’ (golf balls) from one side of the track to the other.
Each form competed against one another until only two remained… The two highest scoring teams then faced each other in the ‘World Cup Final’.
With punishments for dropped eggs, a trophy for the winners, and doughnuts all round, it was a noteworthy and light-hearted event for the students; a perfect way to welcome everyone back onsite after the holidays. Was it best to go fast and risk the penalty for a dropped egg, or does slow and steady truly win the race?!
Congratulations to Mr Boat’s form (7NP), who narrowly beat Mrs Brookes’ form (7AM) in the final. Special thanks to Mr Morrisey, who initially came up with the event - and also to all of our fantastic students in Year 7 for their participation and enthusiasm.
Mr Holloway, Head of Year 7, even hopes to make this an annual event - “getting bigger, better and more complicated with each passing year”!
