Students Share Solutions As They Reach National Finals

Six of Moseley Park’s youngest students did the school proud as they headed to London for the finals of a prestigious national competition.

Year 7 students Emari-Jayden Clarke, Zak Beddow, Arjun Cheema, Bobby Dodd, Kieron Paul and Kurun Singh-Randhawa were up against much older students from around the country in the Solutions for the Planet finals.

The event took place at Westminster on July 11 and saw the best dozen schools nationally vie for the title. Moseley Park had been selected to join the national final after making it through the regional heat earlier this year.

The lads were greeted on arrival at Parliament by local MP Pat McFadden, who proudly insisted on taking a picture with the team and adding it to his Twitter feed.

Miss Tarplee, who took the lads to the contest, said: “Through hard work and preparation, our resilient Stop Bullying team were able to make it through to the grand final in London after seeing off competition from older and more experienced pupils in the regional heats.

“They had rehearsed and practised for hours and were confident in their performance. I was so proud watching them on stage.

“Sadly, they didn’t win, but they have done Moseley Park proud. The judges said they were fantastic and deserved high praise. I am confident they will come back bigger and better next year and perhaps even take the grand prize.”
