Formula Ethara National Finals in Abu Dhabi
On Saturday 20th April, our two school finalists took part in the Formula Ethara National Finals in Abu Dhabi. The Rapid Ravens and Neon Knights displayed excellent communication and presentation skills, whilst also competing well in racing their model cars against the other finalists from 25 other schools across the UAE.
While the two teams didn’t manage to win one of the awards on the day, their child led approach to their learning and the skills they have developed over the last few weeks has been a true credit to themselves and DESS. The Neon Knights team did manage to take away an award for their Karting expertise.
A big well done to both teams.
As part of the F1 in Schools project in Year 6, the children were set the task of raising money for their F1 team and any money remaining from their sponsors has been kindly donated to Dubai Cares. If there is any remaining sponsorship money, please hand in to the accounts office.
Thank you to all the sponsors, who have given so generously and for helping to support our school charity in the process.
The Neon Knights team consisted of Georgia Speller, Eryn Sweeney, Isaac Hadri-Khoussa and Sam Dwyer from Year 6 Blue.
The Rapid Ravens team consisted of Natalie Samuel, Lea Tolomelli, Daniel DSouza, Daniel Soleimani from 6 Orange.
