Trinity’s Year 10 Gifted and Talented students were invited to compete in the Regional round of the World Challenge Scholar’s Cup held on Friday 9th March at Radnor House School. Schools from as far afield as Birmingham and Dorset competed in a number of rounds in their teams.
The Scholar’s Challenge followed which involved a quiz with a clicker and various academic categories to test knowledge. Joshua D came first in the history category, with Eloise M taking second place in the literature challenge.
Trinity’s team comprising of Paddy W, Lawrence F and Sam P came second overall.
Debating various motions in their teams against the other schools took place in the late afternoon. The students were awarded marks on their team work, cohesive arguments, persuasive language and presence. Max, Eloise and David came fourth in this field arguing effectively against ‘Schools issuing a student/teacher contract’.
