Glenmore Challenge Cup Success

March 29, 2018 at 2:18 pm

A small group of students from Year 4 – 6 travelled to Glenmore High school to compete in the annual Glenmore Challenge Cup. This year saw students participate in a full day of Dance, History, English and STEM tasks. Taylah Brown, Mikayla Cheers and Jorja Hoare made up the first STEM team with Paige Ung, Clare Hills and Georgia Brennan the second team. The students had to make a game using the Scratch program which was played and reviewed by their peers. RGGS won the History, thanks to Lydia Johnstone, Paige Donaldson and Matilda Peff who were compared to Year 11 students regarding their ability to critically reflect, compare and contrast ‘poo’ samples. We were also victorious in the English Competition thanks to the incredible writing skills of Bethany Dey, Cadence Won De Rungs and Georgia Priddle. The students were acknowledged for their persuasive letter to the editor on behalf of Papa Smurf with a pollution issue from ‘The Lorax’. Dance students, Lara Bryson, Breanna Baker and Tilly Hungerford were surprised and elated when they received first place for their routine involving teacher and student choreography. No nerves were displayed when they performed this routine in front of all participants, teachers and parents to end the day. With three sections won by RGGS and two spirit tokens, we waited excitedly for the results. RGGS walked away with the overall trophy for the second year in a row. Congratulations girls!
