Students and staff have started to ‘shadow’ the judging process for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards; reading, discussing and reviewing the books on the shortlist selected by CILIP’s panel of Librarian judges. Our Carnegie shadowing group is open to all – we meet on Wednesday lunchtimes in the LRC. Call in to the LRC for more information, borrow one of the 8 shortlisted books and start reading.
Huge congratulations to the 1st XV rugby team for playing their way in to the Schools County Rugby final.
The final will be held at the Old Albanian RFC (AL3 6BB) on 29 March. Kick off at 7:30pm. Supporters would be very welcome.
Eleven talented students attended the annual Rotary Club Design and Technology Tournament at Ashlyns School, along with pupils from 9 other local schools. Tring School fielded 3 teams from Years 9, 10 and 12. The challenge was to review and analyse a technical problem and then design, build and demonstrate a working model that solved the problem. This year the teams had to make a testing vehicle for crawling along inside a pipeline to clear debris stuck inside. The objectives become more complex for the older age groups.
The teams also had to compile a project portfolio containing all their design work and other information. and demonstrate to the judges how well their solution fulfilled the task objectives.
Congratulations to the Year 9 team who came 1st, closely followed by both the other teams coming in 2nd place.
