Weydon School in Farnham is celebrating an impressive performance from a group of its pupils taking part in the National Reading Champions Quiz.
The National Reading Champions Quiz is an annual event run by the National Literacy Trust for pupils aged between ten and 14 years old.
Questions are traditionally tricky – really testing the book knowledge of all involved – and this year was no exception.
A team from Weydon School took part in the South of England regional heat.
During the live online event, Daniel Kitley from Year 9, Harrison Parsons and Lucy Kitley from Year 8, and Elizabeth Humphreys from Year 7, really had their work cut out for them.
The Weydon pupils rose to the challenge though, finishing in third place – only three points behind the leading school.
It was a good example of teamwork from the Weydon pupils.
The Farnham school is also celebrating success in the swimming pool.
Weydon’s swimming team came together to win by four points against local rival Woolmer Hill in the district gala hosted by Farnham Swimming Club.
All of the Weydon swimmers swam tremendously well in all age groups and strokes.
There were some stand-out individual performances from Celeste Long and Toby Hamlet, in the 50 metres breaststroke, and Bea Binding and Isla Gray, in the 50 metres freestyle.
The Year 7 and Year 8 girls also dominated in both the 4 x 50 metres freestyle relay and the 4 x 50 metres medley relay.
The school thanked Farnham Leisure Centre and Farnham Swimming Club for hosting the gala.
