In order to win a place in the final, the pupils had to create a football themed video in a foreign language – in this case, Spanish. The group from The Grange were one of 16 finalists who had been invited to The Emirates from over 250 schools.
The competition on the day itself consisted of solving quizzes and riddles in Spanish, an obstacle course and a “cross bar challenge”. There was also time for a stadium tour and some interaction with Gunnar, the Arsenal mascot!
The day ended on a high for the participants from The Grange as it was announced that they had come 2nd overall.
“We were all extremely happy with our success. It was a once in a lifetime experience for all of us that we will never forget,” said Maya Stables of 8WHB.
