Students were given Chris Bradford-inspired tasks at the latest meeting of the Challenge Club - College librarian Mrs Wrennall explains:

 

"The weekly Banks versus Nevin Challenge Club kicked off in style on return from the Easter Break.

Team Banks and Team Nevin took the Bodyguard training given to students by the author Chris Bradford when he visited the College last month to the next level.

The team leaders took their inspiration from Chris’s Ninja Warrior series, testing their teams with three challenges.

The artistic task challenged students to follow directions to make their own origami ninja star.

This was followed by an academic challenge which involved Kung Fu Punctuation training delivered by Miss Burman, who demonstrated Kung Fu-style actions as a memory aid to punctuation. 

The final, and much anticipated physical challenge, involved students negotiating their way through a web of ribbon - resembling laser beam security - walking along a balance beam and finally earning points for their teams by throwing the ninja stars they made during the artistic challenge into a bucket.

It was a close call but Team Nevin beat Team Banks by a few points to take the Ninja Warrior Challenge Trophy.
