Kian is our Chromebook Competition Winner

Competition winner Kian, pictured her with his Mum and Mr Grieveson.

This year, visitors to our Year 6 Open Evening were invited to take part in the ‘Chromebook Challenge’, an exciting competition to win a Google Chromebook. Our winner was Kian C, pictured here, who is currently a pupil at Victoria Lane Academy.

The competition challenged our Year 6 visitors to follow a map which guided them to individual departments within King James. There they took part in a range of fun activities and completed a themed challenge to earn a stamp from the hosting teacher. Each participant had to fill their competition postcard with stamps to show that they had visited all departments and hand it in at our Main Reception before leaving. The winner was drawn at random the day after the event.

Kian, who returned to King James to collect his prize with his mum, was presented with his Chromebook by our Head Teacher, Mr Grieveson.
