The House Science Competition was a huge success. The photo does not do it justice but provides a glimpse into the overwhelming number of entries. The entries included posters, investigations (home made slime being a favourite), hydraulic bridges and wind turbine boats to name a few. We also had a huge interest in planetary objects, systems and why Pluto is no longer a planet. In response to the Space entries, the Science department hosted an event “Afternoon tea with an astrophysicist” to help answer some of the girls’ curiosities. The winners of the competition were Pankhurst who narrowly beat Cavell.

Well done to all who took part as vital merit points were still awarded to all who submitted an entry.
