Team Challenge In Kington
InSITE editor Naomi Allaway reports on the Team Challenge
The annual Team Challenge day took place on a Saturday when teams from surrounding primary schools descended on Lady Hawkins’ School, in Kington.
For this year’s challenge, the different teams needed to produce a road safety film during the course of the day that was to be shown to parents by the end of the afternoon.
The scene was set with a clip from the film, The Wind in the Willows, where Mr Toad has just spotted a motor car and is enthralled by its magnificence.
To complete this challenge each team had a mini video camera, a variety of props and a team leader in the form of a sixth former from Lady Hawkins’.
“It was a great day all round. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I’m sure the kids had a good time too”, said Tom Geyton, one of the team leaders.
“Every child was hugely imaginative and all contributed not only to their film but to the enjoyment and success of the day”, he continued.
At the end of the day each team had managed to think up an idea, star, film, and edit their own road safety film to great success.
Overall, the Radnor Valley Primary School team won with their film outlining things that cause a lot of road accidents and then going on to show how to avoid these, including by wearing a seatbelt, not drinking and driving and never running through red traffic lights.
The Radnor Valley team received the Team Challenge trophy and a cheque for their school.
