Year-11 students at Our Lady of Sion Senior School celebrating their Sport Relief efforts

More than £1,000 has been raised for Sport Relief by students from year seven to 11, with further sponsorship money still to come.

Year-seven students have also been taking part in Race for the Line, a national initiative encouraging teamwork.

Students designed and built rocket propelled model cars, which they then raced and timed using BBC Micro:bit technology.

Another success for the design and technology department came when two year-11 teams competed in the Great Electric Egg Race at Brighton University and finished first and second.

At Our Lady of Sion Junior School, history has been the focus for year-three pupils, who are learning about the Ancient Egyptians this term.

Keen to find out more, they visited Worthing Museum and had a wonderful time, impressing staff with their knowledge and enthusiasm during the workshop.
