On the 13th October a team of 3 students went to Branston Academy to take part in the northern Lincolnshire heat of the Geographical Association’s Worldwise quiz. At the same time a quiz using the same questions was taking place at Stamford School in the south of the County.
The team comprising of Christopher Bargh, Matthew Waters and Ryan McFahn were joint leaders in the first round with Skegness Academy and The Priory LSST but pulled slightly ahead of them in the second. After seven rounds they eventually were the clear winners of the northern Lincolnshire heat and can be seen in the picture with their prizes.
They then had a long and nervous wait for the other quiz to finish at Stamford but were then told the good news that they had achieved the highest score in the County and were the overall Geographical Association’s Worldwise Quiz Lincolnshire champions for the second consecutive year. Last year’s team comprised of Christopher Bargh, Christian James and Matthew Waters.
The equestrian team were out competing at Bishop Burton on the 24/9/16 . We had three new riders to our team and all of them did a great job representing QEGS. We had three out of the four riders double clear in the first class and a best individual place of 10th went to Flossie England Y7. Clara Dunbavin also went double clear in the next class along side of Morgan Bennett who came 4th individually. Ava Vernon came 1st and 3rd in the 1 metre class riding Rockin Roxy and Mr Pebbles. Ava will be competing in the championship on both ponies in three classes at the end of the month. The dressage team will also be out competing in the Nation final at the end of October. A huge thank you to the riders Molly, Lucy, Flossie, Clara, Rosie, Holly, Morgan and Ava for representing our school.
