kielder challenge 2009

A really lovely day at Ashton Court , Bristol yesterday. Our team from Norton Hill and Fosseway Schools were taking part in one of the Regional Heats of this year’s Kielder Challenge (over 240 teams were competing this year). They were absolutely brilliant and ended up as winners (scoring more than 20% more points than even the second-placed team!).
Lots of fun+laughter. A great day.
PS: Two highest scoring teams from each Region go forward into the National Finals in the Kielder Forest (and unfortunately the South-West has the largest number of participants!). Sadly, we later learnt that, with one heat remaining, we currently lie third behind two outstanding teams. The pupils don’t yet know this and will be REALLY disappointed not to get to the finals…. but it’s been a wonderful few weeks working together and they’ve all become great friends.
