On Wednesday 16th October every Year 7 student participated in Year 7 Challenge Day. All the students were mixed up for the day which gave them the opportunity to meet students they had not met before and work with them in various group tasks. Each group was assigned a country, which they then had to act as a travel agent and persuade the judges that they should visit their chosen country. After researching the country, they had to design a stand which included relevant information regarding local culture, customs and cuisine. They also had to plan a two-week holiday, which included a detailed itinerary of places they would visit and activities they would undertake. The standard was excellent and after some very close judging the winning team was New Zealand.
Score: 3rd – Bulgaria and Iceland (Joint)
