INTERHOUSE RESULTS!!!


Panthers won the Dragon’s Den Inter-house competition this morning with Leopards coming 2nd, Lions 3rd and Tigers 4th place. The winning team gained 200 points for their house and 500 VIVO points each. 100 House points were given for 2nd, 75 for 3rd and 50 for 4th place.


· The winning team (panthers) had the idea of spectacles that could process different types of data the wearer was viewing and upload these to the brain. It could be used in school to aid learning as well as being used for other social purposes.




· 2nd place was Mohammed Ibrahim, Sebastian Kolodziej and Mohammed Yasin in LE-JL (Leopards) with the idea of a personalised jet pack so students could get to school on time every day.

· 3rd place was Lions with a pair of trainers where the aesthetics of colour and pattern could be changed using a downloadable app to allow young people to customise their appearance.


· 4th Place was Tigers with an idea for re-chargeable/re-useable paperless office equipment.


Thank you to all who took part today and to the judges for doing such a great job.


Congratulations to left side squad winners of the Panthers and Leopards handball tournament
