In traditional Cundall manner, we have taken a very unique approach to celebrating the end of term – by asking our pupils to create a trebuchet and compete to see who can propel an egg the furthest.
The annual competition saw nearly a dozen entries from across the school.
With the help of parents, pupils constructed a number of innovative and varying designs with varying degrees of success.
This year’s winners were the Throup family who ‘smashed’ their personal best, propelling the egg the length of the course.
Marketing Manager, Paul Swalwell, said: “The competition is a quirky and fun way to end term.”
“The variety of entries this year proved just how popular this is with our pupils and to see how much effort goes into each design is amazing. Judging from the success of this year’s winner, I think we may need to find a bigger course for next year’s event.”
