Last week, I visited Walton Oak School in Walton for the Top of the Class final. Organised by our brilliant Walton Rotary Club, it is an annual competition between Year 6 pupils at schools right across the borough. This year, 18 schools fought it out in several rounds, until we got down to the final two: Walton Oak versus St Lawrence CofE Junior School.
In the final, last Friday, Tony Stephens from Walton Rotary proved yet again a magisterial question-master – firm but fair – as the two teams contested 10 hard rounds, ranging from maths conundrums to trivia teasers. Both teams were superb, but eventually St Lawrence won. Congratulations to the winners (pictured below), runners-up, and Walton Rotary for organising such a great competition.
