A Brave New World in the LRC
On Thursday 30th March around twenty students took part in the LRC’s after school dystopian* fiction-themed event.
The LRC was transformed into The Hunger Games’ arena where students’ problem and puzzle solving skills were tested. They showed exceptional patience, determination and collaborative skills in order to complete some of the puzzles.
Students were also given the opportunity to take an aptitude test to discover which of the factions featured in Veronica Roth’s Divergent novels they would belong to if they found themselves in the same society as the books’ heroes.
Congratulations go to Amelie who was the winner of the memory competition – she managed to recall 17 out of 25 random items and received a set of the Divergent novels.
*Dystopia - 1.a work of fiction describing an imaginary place where life is extremely bad because of deprivation or oppression or terror
