Worth pupils won a combined total of 30 gold medals, six silver and three trophies when competing in the World Scholar’s Cup for the first time.
The World Scholar’s Cup is an international team academic programme with more than 15,000 students participating from more than 65 countries every year. Its aims are to motivate students of all backgrounds to discover new strengths, learn new skills and to inspire a global community of future scholars and leaders.
Competing in the United Kingdom round at St Theresa’s School, Effingham, over two days last week, Worth pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 made the School proud with all three of our teams qualifying for the global round. In addition, one team came first overall in the Junior Division, while two of our pupils finished third and fourth in the overall individual standings.
The day involved debates, creative writing challenges, multiple choice tests and kahoot-esque team quizzes (called the Scholar’s Bowl), plus a talent show.
Worth pupils taking part said: “Our favourite part of this challenge was the Scholar’s Bowl. We loved that we were allowed to work together and use our combined knowledge of the Scholar’s Cup curriculum to tackle difficult questions.
“It was a brilliant experience, and one which we would love to take part in again.”
Congratulations to all.
