IT WAS a puzzling day for Year 7 pupils at Chichester High School for Girls when they took part in an Olympic-inspired event.

The school ran a competition to create a design for the Games which could be transformed into a giant puzzle.

The winning design came from Jasmine Quartely-Brown, Betty Gao, Lauren Tibbetts and Amy Hatton, all aged 12.

It was then adapted into a 15-square metre puzzle using recycled cardboard.

They created and made each piece, the day culminating in its construction in the sports hall.

Teaching staff said pupils had been extremely positive and worked very hard, and that the challenge was ‘a fantastic achievement’ for the pupils.

The competition was part of a positive thinking and learning day which included workshops led by the Happy Puzzle Company.

The aim was to improve personal learning and thinking skills and encouraging team working and self-confidence.
