Friday 29th June saw the whole of Year 7 complete an array of challenges in the support of Water Aid.
The pupils built water pumps in Physics, purified water in Chemistry, while the English department ran poetry sessions. Problem solving took place on Top Quad, where pupils had to work together as a team to make a pipeline. Water had to be transported from one bucket along the pipeline. The challenge was to catch the flow of water along the pipeline to see how much water could be collected into the second bucket.
The final challenge of the day was physical. The PE department organised a sponsored walk around Corporation Park, where each pupil had to carry with them four litres of water.
The highlight of the day, and what everyone had been waiting for, was the emptying of the bottles and the drenching of Mr Hargreaves, Head of Year 7.
Thank you to all staff who supported the event, and pupils, please remember to bring your sponsor money back into school as soon as possible!
