Junior Team - Update from Mr. Martin Harrison

Well it's Day 3 of our World Scholars Challenges. It was a slow start, as the pace is beginning to take its toll on our young cerebral warriors. Entering for breakfast, more than a little bleary eyed, our intrepid six ate their fill before heading across to the Petronas Towers to lock horns with today's tasks. The students faced around 900 other students from 40 different countries in today's event, the 'Scholar's Bowl'.

This event saw the students split into groups of three again. Claire, Jeremy and Konnor were placed in the 'Flash' section of the arena and Alex, Banu and George were placed in 'Groot'. The sections were based around a superhero theme!

The 'Scholar's Bowl' is a multiple choice quiz where the students are given 'clickers' and by pressing one of the buttons A-E, electronically answer the questions. The quiz though, was unlike anything I have ever had to puzzle over. It was quick fire and relentless, with questions that would turn most brains to chewing gum. The quiz lasted for nearly two hours but the reward saw the auditorium transformed into a scene reminiscent to Shea Stadium, circa 1965, when the Beatles performed live.

Yes, today saw the arrival of 4.5 tonnes of furry toy alpacas on stage that were distributed to all the Junior Scholars. Squealing students fizzed into quivering queues of excitement, as lines snaked towards stockpiles of these soft sacrosanct souvenirs! Once all the students had received their very own alpaca, they placed them on their heads and together made the 'Alpaca Pledge', to look after, name, clothe and NEVER eat their new friend! A very bizarre but humorous spectacle!

This afternoon was much more sedate, as the students enjoyed a talent show. Here various students, from the different competing schools, gave a range of performances to a very receptive and appreciative audience. The students clapped, danced and waved their alpacas in the air, as great fun was had by all.

The day ended at 17:30. The students, now completely shattered, made their way back to the hotel with their alpacas under their arms and headed straight to their rooms! I don't think they'll need much rocking tonight! Another enjoyable day.
