'Top Class' Performance
Bowes was invited to submit an application for a team (4 children and 1 teacher plus reserves) to take part in a new quiz show called ‘Top Class’.
The selection process including testing the children and interviewing them by Skype. The Bowes team - Izzie (team captain), Eliza, Pablo, Daniel and James - was selected and took part in the filming of the first show in front of a studio audience at the BBC studios in Glasgow last weekend. Other teams have been selected from all parts of the UK. It was amazing to experience the whole process, including the 'green room' and make-up. The team performed brilliantly, answering general knowledge questions, specialist subject questions and quick fire questions. Rahma was very brave in volunteering to be the teacher and she was subjected to quick-fire questions on popular culture. Bowes won the first round 37 points to 12 and will now go on to the quarterfinals, being filmed next month. Congratulations!
We are extremely proud of the children for their outstanding performance. They were commended on their teamwork, which certainly contributed to their success.
Thanks also to the parents who gave up their weekends to chaperone the children and to Debbie who coached the team to their success. Watch out for more news on this exciting opportunity.
