Water Aid 2017
On Friday 30th June, all Year 7 pupils took part in the QEGS WaterAid Challenge.
The day began with an assembly before pupils went off to complete different activities. In Maths, pupils considered the amount of water their families used and how this could be reduced. The English Department ran sessions on poetry while in Science, pupils built water pumps in Physics and purified water in Chemistry. There was also a team work activity on Top Quad where pupils had to work together to make a pipeline.
After lunch, pupils completed a physical challenge, organised by the PE department, where each pupil carried four litres of water around Corporation Park.
The day ended as it did last year, with the drenching of Mr Hargreaves, Head of Year 7.
Thanks go to all staff who supported the event in any way.
Pupils were asked to find sponsors for completing the challenge; please remember to bring your sponsor money back into school as soon as possible!
