Our second annual Chopstick Challenge, with students and teachers racing each other down opposite sides of a table while picking up small objects with chopsticks, was a great way to wind down on a Friday afternoon and a lot of fun! The Year 12 SRB boys organised the event to promote multiculturalism at BGS, and Ms Chan, our highly enthusiastic MC, did a fantastic job calling the races. Each round became progressively harder as contestants had to pick up dice, marbles, lollipops, Lego bricks, coins, Tic Tacs, paper clips and individual staples, then use their chopsticks to throw a paper ball into a container.
Mr McClatchy, good sport that he is, was there for entertainment value! What he lacked in skill he almost made up for with blue tack on the end of his chopsticks!! However, he was no match for Benji, who kept his cool under pressure and managed to overtake our reigning champion, Mr Howes. While disappointed that he missed out on a hat full of chocolates, Mr Howes was nevertheless gracious in defeat.
