After 2-3 weeks of frantic preparations during the Integrated Humanities lessons, the Year 7 students arrived on Friday 17th of May looking like Ancient Greeks, ready to compete against each other.
It was a great grand finale:
Each class had about 7 minutes to present themselves as the best City State to win the Ancient Olympic games. All classes had prepared a speech, banners, outfits and a dance. Each class was assigned to a city-state. The city-states of Elis, Syracuse, Athens, Ephesus, Rhodes, Sparta, Argos, Corinth, Megara presented themselves in front of an established jury of Deputy Heads and Subject Area Leaders.

We were all really impressed by the creativity, effort and the originality shown by all city-states. Compliments to all classes! Thank you to all the students, Integrated Humanities teachers, mentors and other supporters who helped.
The jury mentioned that it was a hard choice because all the mentor classes showed such entertaining and informative presentations. Of course, their could just be one winner and that was Syracuse (7B)! Congratulations!
