Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

Challenge Award Winners 2018

We had a fantastic set of applications for the QEGS PTA Challenge Awards this year. We have given awards to 11 individuals or groups - with projects ranging from scientific research on the atmosphere to wild camping in the Lake District. Students recieving an award will present back to the school in September and we wish them all well with their 'challenges'. QEGS would, once again, like to thank the generosity of the PTA in providing the funds for these awards.

Challenge Awards

Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School recently handed out its Parents’ Association Challenge Awards to students from the school. Every year the Parents’ Association invites students to apply for a grant to assist them in undertaking a project during the holidays (independently of the school) of educational value which requires initiative and has an element of challenge. The funding for this comes from the many activities organised by the Parents’ Association and the awards were handed out this year by Rebecca Coleman.

This year’s recipients are carrying out a wide variety of projects and challenges including: a musical tour of Spain, a PADI diving course, work experience at the UN as well as two students setting up their own sportswear business.

The funding for this comes from the many activities organised by the Parents’ Association as well as money from Horncastle Lions who kindly support the scheme too. This has included such varied activities as walking the Viking Way, a tractor driving course and supporting one of our students to compete in the World Transplant Games.

This year’s recipients are carrying out a wide variety of projects including: a musical tour of Germany, time in a recording studio, a tandem skydive as well as the writing and publishing of a children’s book.
