The #Hydesvillefamily join global lockdown competition

This week, 200 Hydesville pupils joined over 10,000 students from Cognita schools around the world to take part in the inaugural Cognita Home Games.

From frog jumps and sock rolls to press-ups and dribbling challenges, there were fitness and skills tests for all age groups to enjoy as part of a global effort to promote physical activity and wellbeing during Covid-19 as many countries continue in lockdown or other social restrictions.

We’re delighted to announce that Team Hydesville won an amazing 1366 medals in total: 637 gold; 421 silver; and 208 bronze.  In addition, Hydesville formed part of Team Europe in the bid to win the highest score or highest participation trophy across the three regions within Cognita.

Headmaster, Mr Honey, said: “It has been wonderful to see so many of our students, families and teachers getting involved in this global event – we’re so proud of you all! We would like to say a big thank you to Mr Lawrence for organising our school’s involvement and to all our Hydesville community for entering into the Cognita Home Games spirit. We hope that everyone has enjoyed it and they now feel inspired to be active. Well done, Team Hydesville!”

Congratulations and a huge thank you to everyone who got involved. We hope you’ve had fun and it has inspired you to be active.
