Pupils ROAR at Cherrywood School

The Lions ROAR 2021 is the exciting opportunity for primary schools to take part in an educational competition to think big and positively change the world. Funded by local Lions Clubs this programme organised through the educational company 8billionideas encourages children to use their imagination and creative skills to make the world a better place.

Pictured below are pupil teams from years 4,5 and 6 of Cherrywood Primary School in Farnborough sponsored by Farnborough Lions Club having presented their team competition ideas including health, environment and sustainability.

Newly appointed member of the Cherrywood team in her role of Aiming High Champion supporting the progress of disadvantaged pupils Mrs Helen Reed said "Working in teams of 3 or 4, the children have been exceptionally animated in their efforts, creating their group names: Resilience Intelligence Friendship and Teamwork (RIFT), Caring, Keen, Curious (CKC), World Changing Ideas (WCI) and The Fabulous Farnborough Four. They have also created impressive team logos, which they wear with pride on their personalised t-shirts". 

"Their next step was to pitch these ideas alongside prototype products and posters and advertising jingles to a panel of judges made up of School Governors,  Staff and Farnborough Lions in the local heats".

Team CKC won the Cherrywood Competition and went forward to the District finals in November prior to attending the ROAR National Awards Day online for children and Lions in early December.
