Hard working students at a Thornton high school took part in a challenge fun day as a reward for commitment to their studies.

One hundred pupils from Millfield Science and Performing Arts College were involved in the roadshow, taking part in challenges, similar to those on TV show Total Wipeout, and inflatable assault courses.

The event was organised by teachers Mike Deaville and Vicky Bottomley for 25 students from each of the school’s four houses who earned the most house points.

House points are earned over the academic year for high achievement, good behaviour and taking part in extra-curricular activities.

Mr Deaville said: “It was a great day for all the students.

“It is important to us that our students feel they are rewarded not only privately but publicly as well.

“The students involved will want to ensure they are involved next year while the students that were watching will try even harder to get themselves in the top 100.”

Pupil Lewie Deery added: “It was a really fun day and I hope we get to do something like this next year because it motivates everyone to do the best they can.”
