During Activities Week, the Year 8 students took part in the Balloon Car Challenge. Students battled it out to produce a car that
would travel further and faster than any of their class mates’. Each group was given a fixed list of equipment plus two tokens that they could exchange for various accessories.

The students’ competitive spirit soon kicked in and each group managed to produce a car that was powered by a balloon and was capable of completing the course. This activity was completed to promote the Green Car challenge that the school is entering next year. Students from all year groups have applied to be part of the team.
