Aagya, Yr 7, Lia Yr 8, Billy, Yr 9, and Dat, Vito and Cerenity, Yr 9, researched specialist subjects in advance of the competition which included; Science: To Shoot For the Moon, History: History of Conspiracies, Literature: The Voice of the Almost Impossible, Art and music: Fragments of an Improbable Universe, Social studies: Predicting the Future and Special area: Modern Mythology.

Our students performed most admirably and brought back an impressive haul of medals and trophies. We are incredibly proud that they have qualified for a Global Round so watch this space!

Some quotes from our World Scholars:

‘We can’t wait to compete again!’

‘The competition was very challenging, but it brought us knowledge, new friends, and undoubtedly changed us.’

‘I can’t believe we won the debate;the other team was awesome!’

‘The World Scholar’s cup is a very challenging but rewarding event that we will remember for the rest of our lives. So we hope that some of you are interested in going next year!’
