Geography Rock Stars are announced!

It was a fierce and closely fought battle this year in the annual Geography Rockstars Competition.
In this celebration of Geography, maps, flags, locational knowledge and yes: ROCK, teams in all years went toe to toe in their pursuit of Geography Rockstar glory.  The chance to get their hands on the coveted golden hand trophy proved a heady draw for our best minds…never have the dulcet tones of AC/DC rung out as loudly over more deserving heads in assemblies. Over the pounding drums, soaring guitars and lasers the roar of the pumped House crowds was awesome… particularly considering this was all before 9am.
The Year 7 competition featured particularly surreal scenes as the house mascots were particularly inspired by the Guns n’ Roses classic, Welcome to the Jungle – Monday morning has never felt quite so right watching a rhino, a dragon, a phoenix, a lion and an otter conga around the hall before dancing supportively, and more than a little rambunctiously in front of their house teams fighting hard to recall the colours of the flag of Moldova!
After five days of competition, across all years, there could only be one true rockstar house to rule them all. The Rhinos of Raleigh house brought the full charge this year and when the rubble was cleared and the results were calculated it was Raleigh whose hands were raised highest, index and smallest finger aloft.
Geography Rockstars will return next year but hopefully our students will be inspired to explore and protect our planet every day. Thank you and good night, Barnstaple! 🤘🏻
